Our dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on shots and microchipped.

About Indigo

Indigo is a very pretty 9 month old black/tan female Doberman pup. Due to her young age, Indigo requires a fenced yard. No e-fences.  Indigo has natural ears, a docked tail and weighs about 60 lbs. She will get a little bigger as she matures. 

Indigo is a very smart girl who knows some basic obedience and is very well house trained. She is also crate trained and rides well in a car.  Indigo is very playful with dogs and would enjoy play dates with other dogs and/or to have a resident equally playful doggie buddy.  Indigo loves to chew on antlers, bones and durable rubberized toys. She also loves treats so she is easy to train. Indigo is a typical mischievous puppy who also likes to steal dish towels, laundry items, shoes, etc. so time to puppy proof the house! :) 

Indigo loves to be outside exploring so a family that enjoys hiking would be great. As with all pups her age, she should not be used as a jogging partner until her growth plates close between 1 and 1 1/2 years old. Indigo will play an occasional game of Fetch. Check out Indigo's video: Indigo is a very sweet, lovable puppy who likes to cuddle and have her belly rubbed.

Indigo was not well socialized with people outside of her immediate family for the first 6 months of her life so her adopter will need to be patient and give her some time to get to know them before she shows her true "puppy side".  It will also be important to continue Indigo’s socialization so she can learn about all the wonders that the world has to offer. 

If you have time and lots of love to give to Indigo, contact DAR&E so we can talk about this sweet girl.
