This is Chase! He’s a handsome 8 year-old, going on 9 months! He is very alert in between his naps and will not leave your side.
Chase came to us as an owner-surrender after spending two months in a local kennel. Like all Dobermans he is a good watch dog but he loves to meet whoever is on the other side. He has great manners when meeting new people, no jumping or excessive running around. A few sniffs and you’re in! Other than that, he is a very quiet guy. Chase is house-trained and goes whenever you take him out. He loves being around his person and will need to be in a home where someone is there most of the day or only leaves him for short stints. He crates well.
Chase doesn’t have much experience with other dogs so he would be best placed in a home with no other pets. He loves his Kong filled with treats and is really good at getting them out. If one is stuffed in there really good, he will roll the Kong down the steps to loosen it up. When it’s empty, he’ll put it in your lap for a refill. Chase is great at playing fetch – he locks in on the ball, sits for you to throw it, dashes after it and brings it right back. If the weather is nice, he’ll give you a good 30 minutes of play, but when it’s too hot, he takes the ball and goes to lay in shade or stands by the gate to let you know he’s ready for some A/C.
Chase is a bit thin at 71 lbs, but he is gaining weight (an ideal 75 lbs). He sits and waits patiently for his meal to be prepared and doesn’t have any food aggression. Chase is neutered and up to date on all his vaccines.
