Alex's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Alex's Story...
Alex is about a year and a half old, he is red/rust with natural ears and docked tail. Alex lived with family that included two teenaged boys, no other pets. He used to go to the local dog park for recreation with his family. The parents divorced and no one wanted Alex any more. Alex is not good with cats and shouldn't be around them. He is good with other dogs but most importantly, Alex prefers to be with his family. He is house trained, he knows "sit", "down", "shake" and does fairly well on leash. He is crated trained but does not like to be in the crate if you are home - he'd prefer to be with YOU. He's a happy guy, not a complicated fellow at all. He is fairly rambunctious - lots of puppy behaviors still remain even though he looks like an adult dog. He loves toys, loves to play fetch and will chase a toy for as long as you are willing to throw it! In fact, Alex needs a home where he can be fairly active and involved in all activities. He's not a dog that needs a backyard to run in - he just needs a family to hang out with in the house, to receive pets and love and to follow around!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alex, a Arlington Doberman Pinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Doberman Pinscher for sale in Arlington, or seeking a Doberman Pinscher dog from a breeder in Arlington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Arlington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Arlington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Doberman Pinscher breeders who help with Doberman Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Arlington paves the way for another one to be saved.
