Story
We have had our dog for many years. We found him abandoned and we adopted him. From my research I think Roux is a natural uncut Doberman Pinscher, but he may have some lab mixed in. He is great with kids and other animals. He is a very sweet loving and kind dog.

Story
Kinyah was born in February 1997. She is 7 years old. She belonged to my Granddaughter that passed away 4 1/2 years ago. Kinyah is very lovable especially with men and at the same time very active. She barks at everything. It's like she sees everything for the first time so she barks. She definitely loves to ride in the truck or car. She is in her happy place there. She is also scared of gunshots and thunder. The best I can say is she is truly an Australian Shepard in every way. I will be traveling a lot and she can't stay at home that long at a time. It will break my heart but she needs a new home.
