Gil's Story...
leaf line

Our foster dogs live as family members in the foster home until chosen for adoption.

Hi, my name is Gil (aka Gilligan).

I was found as a stray wandering the streets worrying how to care for myself. I’m a five-year-old Doberman mix and weigh 65 pounds. At least here at the shelter I have my basic needs taken care of like food and water plus a roof over my head. However, I am longing to find my forever home and a family to love me. Do you have room in your heart and your home for me??


My foster parents now call me Gil. I spent waaaaayyy too long at the shelter, but now I’ve settled in very nicely with my foster family, which consists of two humans, four other dogs, and more cats than I can count. I get along really well with the other canine members of the family, and have learned that cats are pretty cool, too.

I have a very sweet and gentle disposition, and love to cuddle next to my foster dad on the sofa. My foster parents believe that I had former obedience training because I know the commands of sit, stay, and heel, and I’m very good on a leash. Also, I’ve learned from my “brothers and sister” how to crate up at night.

My foster parents strongly feel that I will make an excellent adoption for a forever family that might have other dogs and/or cats (and possibly children?). I’m neutered and up-to-date on all vaccinations, as well as heart worm and flea/tick treatments. I’m sure when you meet me it will be love at first sight!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gil, a Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati, or seeking a Doberman Pinscher dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

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