Good with other dogs.  Loves to play, but can be possessive of her space when in the house.  Ela is probably best placed in an "only dog" home.
Not good with cats.
Good with older children. (skittish)

This lovely, engaged and engaging young Dobergirl came to us from a couple who helped nurture her back to good health and weight after they rescued her from a bad situation. Unfortunately, they were ill-equipped for keeping her long term due to their work schedules and not having a fenced yard.  We salute them for their concern and short-term intervention, and for seeing her safely to Elijah’s House.

You can see from her pictures she is a strikingly attractive dog. Her physical perfection is only slightly impaired by a natural cowlick up her neck which may seem to some as though her hackles are raised, which we have yet to actually see. Her energetic, inquisitive nature keeps her on the move outside, and she longs for certainty, love, and affection.

She previously was kept tied outside, and probably as a result she tends to be a little tentative around strangers. This carries over a bit inside, where she can be a little possessive of her space in relation to other dogs. Being tied out, it’s likely she got used to living in a very small space and hasn’t gotten used to the idea yet that there’s plenty of room in a house and no need to keep other dogs from crowding her.

That having been said, she’s playful and friendly when meeting all other dogs, happily running around the exercise fields with them and truly enjoying their company. She even rode in the car for many hours with another female Dobe, and there was never a problem.

Our volunteers share these observations:
    “Elsa is timid at first especially with men. She is well worth your patience, however. She’s very sweet and great traveler. I can see her personality blooming as she gains trust in her humans. It’s clear she would like to play, but having been tied out before. She doesn’t quite know yet how to interact with ball.”

    “I tend to favorite black and tan, natural-ear dobies and she, other than my own, is tops! She’s a beautiful shy girl that comes around after a little time. After a few “give me a paws” and lying in her run, she opened up and just wants love and attention! If my wife would let me have another, she would be the one!”

   "Over the past couple months of knowing this girl I have seen her greatly come out of her shell. She used to be shy and timid, but after some TLC she is playful and fun and her personality shines. She has the cutest, most proper sit like she's waiting for Queen Elizabeth to show up, but when you get her to start playing she is ready to go. She loves a good belly rub, and is definitely not opposed to some calm and sleepy snuggles."

Every indication is that this is an outstanding dog who, due to her former, restricted life, simply lacks exposure and experience. There’s every good reason to think that once she’s in a new home and knows the patterns, her social skills will shine forth and she will be an inseparable companion for many years to come.

If her beauty and presence has caught your attention, make an appointment o meet her once your application is approved, and come spend a little time getting to know her. I suspect that whoever the fortunate one is that takes her home will be richly rewarded for making her part of their family
