Sasha & Sanjay's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Sasha & Sanjay's Story...
Sasha and Sanjay, although they would not win any conformation contests, have beautiful natures and are the sweetest pair of Dobermans I have met. :-) They are quiet, gentle, sensitive, well-behaved and have begun to enjoy going for walks. As you can tell by
the size of them, they were not only left alone with little exercise for most of their lives, but also little interaction
besides each other. In spite of that they are good with other dogs and people.

Sanjay is more playful and active than Sasha, who would prefer to cuddle
at your feet. Sasha loves gentle affection from people but is still coming out of her "shell"; both dogs were
"shut down" and introverted when they arrived.

When I first started fostering them, Sasha's feet would bleed because she was not used to walking. She now walks nicely
on the leash, no pulling at all. They have both lost some weight since these pictures
were taken at the beginning of April but need to lose more. Sanjay is getting into "power walks" with the dog walker so
is no longer reluctant to go out. He could use a harness as he is
used to being walked quickly and is a strong 130 lb. dog, but he is not "puller".

Sanjay is attached to Sasha so sometimes he is slightly anxious when she is away from him. He is not destructive,
he whimpers at the bottom of the stairs. Although he will come up the outside
stairs, he is reluctant to walk up our indoor stairs for some reason. They both sleep together in a large crate at night.
They are house trained and have reasonably good recall. Both are very food motivated, so will have to be taught to be calm
before feeding. (Like humans) food compulsion is sometimes common with dogs who have been
deprived of love and attention, although I can remove a bone from them with no problem.

If you are eager to adopt a rescued dog, owning two dogs instead of one is often much easier.
This bonded pair should not give anyone any trouble. Sasha and Sanjay are looking
for a wonderful family home who can give them the affection and security they have missed.
Sanjay is 6 and Sasha is 7 years old and have had all their vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sasha & Sanjay, a Vancouver 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 Vancouver, or seeking a Doberman Pinscher dog from a breeder in Vancouver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Vancouver 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 Vancouver 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 Vancouver paves the way for another one to be saved.
