About Earl

Meet Earl – a total love bug! Earl is an easygoing, 2-year-old black & rust, cropped & docked, male Doberman with ginormous paws. He is a real gem! Earl is dog-reactive and will need a home without other dogs.

Earl is a joy to have. He is such a lovebug and a very good boy. He is such a sweetheart. Earl is house-trained and very well-behaved when inside. He does not try to take items around the house that do not belong to him. He could probably be left with run of the house when home alone however I have not tried it for more than an hour at a time. He has a few select toys that he plays with but prefers to rest his head in your lap for head rubs or just lay up against you. He likes lots of attention.

Earl is also crate-trained. Although he has plenty of dog beds to choose from, Earl prefers to lay in his crate or on a rug on the floor. Of his own accord, he has not gotten onto any furniture since I got him.

Earl did wonderful getting a shower and letting me wipe his wet feet before coming inside.

He is very food-motivated. He hasn’t tried to take any food off the counters but will follow you around the kitchen when cooking (and eating) hoping to get a bite.

Earl is a total sweetheart. With lots of love and a little training, He will be a fantastic companion.

Earl is currently located in Virginia.
