Zeus's Info...

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

Zeus's Story...
If you are looking for a dog to guard your junkyard, just keep right on looking. If you're looking for an attention hog addition to a loving family, though, I might be your boy. I am not a fighter (though I've been told I look the part.), I am a lover. (albeit altered.) I am about 2 ½ years old beautiful blue young man. My ears are cropped and my tail docked. My turn-ons are snuggling, warm places, long walks, long car rides, overeating and world peace, but especially the first five.

Zeus is demonstrated good with children 10 – 16. Works and plays well with a small dog. Not tested with larger dogs, but should be fine. Fully housebroken. Loves walks, but needs some work in heeling. Has learned “sit,” “down,” and we are working on “stay”. He can be very playful, but so far no chewing. His coat is brittle, but should improve with proper diet and shampoo over time.

Zeus was in boarding for a long time and his manners have deteriorated, but are improving daily. His head is exactly the right height for counter-surfing and he will stretch his long neck as necessary. He has a terrific appetite, but his portions must be moderated to prevent stomach distress. He gets really excited when he is about to be fed. He suffers somewhat from separation anxiety when the person to whom he is bonded has to leave the house. I would recommend he not be routinely be crated for long periods and this should work since he is not a chewer. His separation anxiety may be a result of his being locked up too long and may moderate over time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zeus, 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.
