Hi, I'm Shep

About Shep

Shep is a beautiful red/rust pure bred Doberman (not part shepherd, that is just his name). He is at a great age just shy of 2 years old. He has natural ears and a docked tail. Shep is your typical velcro dobie and is full of love and silliness. Shep is crate-trained. In fact, he knows the morning routine so well he gets into his crate before I get to it and patiently waits for me. During the day he loves to play with my female Doberman and at night he curls up on his dog bed or with my dog. He loves a good snuggle and head scratches. Shep is very smart and learns new things quickly. He walks well on a leash, is well behaved in public, and loves to go out for ice cream. He rides well in the car. Shep would love to be in a home with another large dog friend. Shep is located in Virginia.


This is My Story

His owners had health issues and needed to rehome him.
