Hi, my name is Indy and I’m a gentle, well mannered, 60 pound, 9 month old blue/tan male. Since I arrived at my foster home, I have been a little bit cautious when meeting new people, but I‘ll usually warm up to them fairly quickly, especially if treats are involved. During the Christmas Holiday I had a chance to meet a lot of new adults, and with their calm, gentle touch we were best friends in a very short time.
You can see me helping them bake Christmas cookies and asking for pets in my video.
I also have a new favorite football toy that I got for Christmas. You can me playing with it in my video.
I really like to have physical contact with people. If you are sitting on the floor, couch or bed there is a really good chance I will try to climb in your lap. I like to fall asleep next to you and will ask for lots of attention by nudging you with my muzzle or tapping you with my paw.
I still have a lot of puppy in me, so I have tons of energy to run and play. Outside, I like to play with my “Chuck it” toys, or my frisbee and I like to run in the yard to release all my puppy energy. Here is a video of me playing in the yard.
For my obedience training, I’m learning basic commands like ‘sit’ and ‘stay’ and I’m doing really well with walking on a leash without a lot of tugging or pulling. I am very food motivated.
Inside the house I’m house-trained and crate-trained. I’m usually calm and well-mannered, but I do get excited when I greet someone I know where they come into the house. In the time I’ve been at my foster home I have not chewed on anything other than my toys but I have picked up shoes, slippers, etc, and carried them to my bed. During the day I also like to nap in warm sunbeams.
I sleep through the night in my dog bed, but not in my crate. I’m very alert to everything going on outside the house and I will bark to let you know when there are other dog’s, delivery drivers, etc. I’m very calm when getting in and out of a car, and calm when I’m riding in the car. My foster home does not have any information on how I will react with cats in the house.
I will likely do best in a new home where someone is home most of the day for a least the first few weeks after my adoption. It would be very helpful if my new home has had Dobermans in the recent past and it would be helpful, but not essential if they have experience with young, male Dobermans. I will also need a large fenced yard to run and play, an invisible fence is not ok. (All dogs under 1 must go to a home with a full fenced yard.)
This is My Story
I found myself needing DAR&E to find me a furever home.
