About Zena

Zena is a beautiful 4 year old black and tan female Doberman Pinscher.

She is at the Montgomery County Humane Society,  601 S. Stonestreet Avenue, Rockville, MD 20850. Phone: 240-252-2555 or email:  

Zena was rescued from a partner shelter and was found with what was to be believed as a birth defect. After having a health assessment completed by our vet it was later proven to be an old injury that was ignored by her previous owners. Everything is all healed and working as it should though it looks painful.

Our vet has assured us that she is not in any pain and her quality of life has not and should not be affected as you can see she runs, plays, jumps, walks like any other dog.

Zena would need both physical and mental stimulation to prevent destructive behavior due to boredom. She would also benefit from positive reinforcement and would excel in training classes. Zena loves all people she meets and greets them respectfully but would do best in a home with children 10 years or older due to her size and strength.

Any potential adopters should have working or sporting breed experience. Zena shows typical Doberman territorial guarding behavior with other animals, so she would do best as the only pet in the household.
