Bentley's Story...
Bentley is a red male Doberman and he will be two years old in January 2013. He was taken into rescue because his owner could not afford to care for him. He is very loving and willing to learn anything you ask of him. Bentley loves to snuggle and is social with all people. Due to his exuberance for life, it is recommended that he be with children over the age of ten. He does well with most dogs but would recommend he be with larger dogs as his style of play can be rough. He enjoys being with people the most so if he were an only dog that would fine too. Bentley will do best in a home with an active family as he enjoys exercise.

Bentley is crate trained, house trained and knows basic obedience commands. He does very well when loose in the house, yet if left unattended he should still be crated. He has spent most of his life in a kennel and is quickly learning how nice a soft bed can be to sleep on. Due to some of his past experiences he is sometimes worried about going through doorways, or going into new places. He is very willing and with proper training, he quickly adjusts to new things and wants to play. He does alert bark when people arrive at the house; however he has always been friendly to strangers. He needs an owner that is assertive but not too overpowering. Bentley just wants a best friend to love for life! If Bentley sounds like a good match for you, please ask about him today!

****His adoption fee is $425.****

The Animal Rescue Project ( is committed to the best possible veterinary care for the pets it rescues—and it is looking for adopters who will be similarly committed.

All dogs and puppies are given a general check-up when they enter our program. They receive medication to remove any intestinal parasites (worms), fleas, and ticks they may have. Dogs greater than six months of age are checked for heartworm. If heartworm positive, the Animal Rescue Project treats the disease. Dogs and pups receive all age-appropriate vaccinations for distemper, and dogs greater than four months of age are also vaccinated for rabies, in compliance with State of Michigan laws.

Most dogs and older puppies are spayed or neutered before adoption. In the case of puppies not old enough to be safely sterilized, a $25 deposit is required at the time of adoption and is refunded to the adopter with proof of sterilization.

The Animal Rescue Project requires every adopter to establish an active relationship with a veterinarian no later than 10 days after adoption. Adopters will receive a plan for routine veterinary care at the time of adoption and are expected to work with their vet to complete the plan.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bentley, a Kalamazoo 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 Kalamazoo, or seeking a Doberman Pinscher dog from a breeder in Kalamazoo.

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