Hi, I am Nemo’s foster Mom.  I wanted to give you my impressions of Nemo for a little bit of extra background.  First of all, he is absolutely beautiful and I anticipate he will be a big beautiful male when fully grown.  Truly the quintessential Doberman.  Given his age and training I also feel he is a ideal dog - young enough to grow into himself with his new owners but old enough to know the rules and follow them.  Although he is a puppy, he is quickly growing into an adult dog.  He is the sweetest boy and wants to be loved more than anything in the world.  He is a little unsure of himself so he needs reassurance in new situations but quickly falls in line when his owners take the lead.  A strong leader will give him the confidence and support he needs to grow.  He wants to be with his owners whenever possible and will stick by your side.  He is a social boy and I suggest that his new owners set up controlled opportunities to keep his socialization going.  He can get overwhelmed so a packed dog park is not the place for him in the beginning.  His desire to follow and please are so strong that he will grow into a wonderful dog.  

About Nemo

Hi, my name is Nemo, also known as Neem-neem!  I am an 9 month-old neutered male dobie puppy.  I am a very handsome black and tan boy with a docked tail and adorable floppy ears!  I absolutely love people and want to be around others all the time.  When exploring new things, I always come back to my foster parents to check in and make sure they are happy.  I love being petted and loved on and have learned to sit to get the affection I want.  I am very smart so I am a quick learner.  I do have a little bit of a rebellious streak but that’s just because I am basically a teenage boy, my new owners will just need to correct any willful behavior.  My absolute favorite thing is cuddling on the couch, I love to fall asleep cuddled up with my owners while we watch Animal Planet.  I get along great with other dogs but have never met a cat.  I love play time outside and would definitely need a home with a fully fenced yard (no invisible fences).

I am smart, learn very quickly, and have a strong desire to please so I am really looking forward to obedience classes.  I can sit, touch, stay, come, wait for my food, and lay down and I am house trained.  I love my crate and can stay home alone for up to four or five hours although, if I am away for a longer period, I need a bit of play time to relax.  My foster mom sometimes leaves me longer with a dog walking break in the middle of the day.  I am great on the leash although I am still working on not getting too excited.  Like all puppies, I will need help expanding my repertoire of commands and learning the rules of my new home but I am eager to learn and please and I can’t wait for a forever home!

This Is My Story

Nemo ended up needing a new home, and DAR&E is helping him find it.
