Dogs For Adoption


I've been adopted!

DAR&E only places within the Maryland, DC, West Virginia and Virginia area. Please do no apply to adopt if you live outside of those areas. Please click here to visit our Adoption Process page for additional information on adopting one of our DAR&E Dobermans & an online application!

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

Hi, I am Sailor’s foster Mom.  I wanted to give you my impressions of Sailor for a little bit of extra background.  She is the ideal dog in my mind – young enough to grow into herself with her new owners but old enough to know the rules and follow them. She is a very sweet girl with a little bit of an independent streak so she won’t constantly be in her new owner’s space but she will be easy to keep track of because she never goes very far.  She loves to play with other dogs and is very social.  She is one of the smarter dogs I have ever had and so would do great with more challenging training techniques like agility.  One of her absolute favorite things is to have the space to really get out and run.  She is very quick and you can just see the joy on her face when she can really turn on the speed.  She does feel insecure with new people, especially men, and will need patient new owners to help her feel comfortable as she grows into an amazing adult dog. 

About Sailor

Hi, my name is Sailor! I am a 11 month-old spayed female dobie. I am a beautiful black and tan little lady with a docked tail and adorable floppy natural ears! I am incredibly intelligent and pick up new things very quickly. I can sit, touch, stay, come, wait for my food, and lay down and I am fully house and crate trained. I love to be social with my dog friends, but as a great guard dog I take a little time to warm up to new people. I can feel insecure with new people, especially men, and will need patient new owners to help me feel comfortable as I grow into an amazing adult dog. One of my favorite things is cuddling on the couch because I really am a lap dog and I also like to be close to my humans whenever they are around. I like laying on my bed and eating my bones. I love play time outside and would definitely need a home with a fully fenced yard. 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

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