Hi, I'm Duchess
Doberman Pinscher Mix | Young | Female | Medium
Duchess is a wonderful girl who is overflowing with love and affection for people – her tail never stops wagging and she loves to lay in your lap and give kisses! She wants as much attention as you are willing to give her. Duchess is good with kids and other dogs and is very enthusiastic about both. She has also done well in a farm environment with large animals. She is interested in playing with cats, but she is not aggressive towards them, and with a little encouragement could probably learn to ignore them altogether.
She is very active and would love to have a big yard to play in and she is great on walks. She listens very well, knows her name and comes right away when called, and knows basic commands. She is exceptionally smart and could easily learn much more! Duchess is house trained, but she very adamantly does not like to be crated. She barks on occasion when she hears a suspicious noise or someone comes to the door, but she is not at all “yappy.”
Duchess hopes to find a home with a family that loves to hike, go for lots of walks/runs, play fetch, or take her to the dog park! After a day of playing, she happily curls up in your lap or beside you (or on her own bed if you ask) and quietly sleeps through the night. Duchess will make her new home so much brighter for her presence.
