Hi, I'm Ava

About Ava

Ava is a 7 year young fawn/rust female who is cropped and docked. She is a very playful and affectionate girl, who absolutely loves toys. She can entertain herself with a variety of toys, but balls are her favorite. If you throw the ball for her, she could chase it for hours. She is an energetic and healthy 7 year old that would do best in a home with no other pets because she doesn’t trust other dogs and has a high prey drive. Ava loves being with her people and will shower you with kisses and nose boops.

Ava is your typical velcro Doberman and will follow you everywhere. Her signature move is to rest her chin on you until you pet her. Ava is housebroken and crate trained. When first crated, she can be vocal and paw at the crate, but she settles down within 10-15 minutes. Ava is crated at night and whenever we need to step out of the house. 

As energetic as Ava can be, she can settle down if you give her a comfy dog bed and some chew toys. She loves human affection and if you can’t be petting her because you’re cooking or working, she will do the Dobie lean to be connected to you.

If you have a large, fenced yard and no other pets and are looking to add a playful and affectionate Doberman lady to your household, please contact DAR&E today!
