Marco's Info...

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

Marco's Story...
Marco (Polo) is a big red boy with a big head, big paws and a big heart. Because of his size, he can be a bit intimidating but then you realize all he wants is to be pet and a good scratch. After looking into his calm, golden eyes you realize he loves everyone. Sometimes, because he wants to show how much he loves a person, he tries to jump up but will immediately settle when you say down.

Marco spent the first 8 years of his life outside in a tiny, all dirt yard of a back yard breeder before he came to us a couple months ago when the owner passed away. He was never allowed in the house and never given any real training. His time exposed to the elements has taken its toll on him and he has big calluses on his elbows, patches of fur missing on his hind legs, and had to have 13 teeth extracted. Despite a rough beginning to his life, he is friendly, calm, and one of the most chill dogs you will ever meet.

Although he has some weakness in his back legs, possibly from arthritis, he is still extremely strong. He knows sit, down, stay, and shake, but needs continued work on his leash manners. He lived with all kinds of dogs but he seems to be dog selective and a slow introduction to other dogs is a must. While he does not seem to be prey driven, he did not test well with cats. He rides well in a car. He now understands that when the doorbell rings it means someone is there but he doesn't bark. In fact he doesn't bark much at all unless he hears another dog barking.

Marco is an incredibly special boy who would be the perfect match for an experienced doberman owner looking to enjoy an incredibly handsome and loving senior, and continue to introduce him to the finer things in life ;)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marco, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a Doberman Pinscher dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

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