About Kismet

Meet Kismet, a beautiful and sleek 1-year-old black/tan, cropped male Doberman who is eagerly awaiting his forever home. Kismet is a quick learner and responds well to positive training experiences. Kismet is very smart and curious. Weird fact- Kismet likes to take showers and will stand nicely inside the shower while getting his beauty treatments. He loves to be hugged and petted and has the potential to form a deep bond with his human. 

Kismet also carries a tender vulnerability, navigating the world with some insecurity requiring understanding and patience from his potential adopter. While Kismet may initially be cautious in new situations and with new people, his sweet nature shines through as he gradually acclimates. Positive reinforcement and gentle guidance will be crucial in helping Kismet feel secure in his surroundings. A calm and consistent approach to training, combined with plenty of reassurance and love, will help him flourish and overcome his past. Kismet will do best in an adult-only household. 

It’s important to note that Kismet is still very much a puppy and is not yet trained. He is working on his basic commands and house training. Kismet’s adopter should be prepared to invest time and effort into training, starting with the fundamentals. He will benefit greatly from the guidance and structure that consistent training provides. He is good with cats and could be ok with another dog with a proper introduction. 

If you are ready to open your heart and home to a handsome young boy who needs a little extra support, consider giving this beautiful boy the loving home he deserves and be rewarded by watching him grow to his potential.

Kismet is being fostered in MD.
