Papi's Story...
Papi is a 3 year old red Doberboy with cropped ears and a docked tail. His ears don’t stand, but they lay nicely and he is a very handsome fella. He is quite tall and trim, and weighs about 75 lbs. He is one very athletic canine, and LOVES to play with balls and flying discs. He can even get four tennis balls in his mouth at once! Check out this link to see his Frisbee mojo . Papi is very inquisitive and energetic, and he will need a human who engages him physically and mentally. He is very sweet and stays close to his human. He knows the basic group of commands well, but will need reinforcement and practice. He barks at the door and at newcomers, until they are brought into the house and given a seat. He sleeps in his own bed – or yours if you allow it. Papi is 100% housebroken. He has excellent car manners except he will bark at cyclists. His leash manners are basic, and will improve with additional training.
He crates nicely during the day.
Papi is well socialized and good with cats and other dogs. He gets a little over-exuberant at times, so human and animal housemates must be able to tolerate a large, young, energetic dog. Papi would do best in a home with older, dog savvy children….no toddlers, please! He also requires a large, fenced in yard where he can be free to run and play with his favorite toys. Papi is not a dog for the first time Doberman owner. However, if you are an experienced owner and have the time and desire to continue with the training that he needs, Papi will repay you with the greatest of love and companionship.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Papi, 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.
