I'm available for adoption!

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 has been a very easy puppy and I feel she is going to grow into an amazing dog.  

About Sailor

Hi, my name is Sailor!  I am an 9 month-old spayed female dobie puppy.  I am a beautiful black and tan little lady with a docked tail and adorable floppy natural ears!  I love making new friends, both dog and human alike, and my foster mom thinks I’m a total love bug.  I am very good at telling my family if someone is approaching the house and will be an excellent guard dog.  I love to be praised and have a laid-back demeanor.  I am incredibly intelligent and pick up new things very quick.  My foster mom thinks I am an easy puppy!  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 but am better than most puppies about laying on my bed and eating my bones alone.  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, hardly pull at all and love to take walks.  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.
