Good with other dogs.
This handsome and enthusiastic Doberpup came to us from someone who only had him for two weeks.  While we don't know the details, there’s more to the story than that.  When we took him to be neutered, it was discovered that he had orthopedic surgery several months ago on his left front leg.  There’s a pin in one bone and another is bowed.  To be clear, this doesn’t slow him down one bit!  He’s completely oblivious to his earlier injury and repair.  
 
In fact, being youthful and untrained, he’s a bit of a wild man, energy-wise.  With all her experience handling dogs, he took Mama Carol for a jet-propelled walk when leaving the vet’s office.  She says “HIGH ENERGY is not a strong enough term for him.  He needs direction.”
 
Now, don’t be put off by that.  This is not unusual for a completely untrained, unguided Doberpup.  Many if not most of them start out this way.  Responsible owners take the time needed to train and direct their energy and enthusiasm so they mature into outstanding companions and family members.  This one is in need of just such a loving and committed owner. 

And the good news is, he’s taking direction well and has made major improvements.  He knows to sit and will wait for us to put his lead on him.  He loves to snuggle and give kisses, as well, he's no longer (playfully) grabbing and play biting the way he was.  He's come a long way in a month.

Despite his current over-the-top approach to life, he has a sweet personality and wants to play bow to all the other dogs. 

Volunteer comments:
    “He's a puppy and is wide open, with lots of energy!  He really needs direction, and he responds with a bit of time. He calms down after a walk and seems to understand leash walking (after he got over jumping up and being mouthy).  And he likes to be with people and loves to  snuggle.”

    “Gomez is a great pup!  Full of energy and curious!  Just a bit rough around the edges.”

     “Gomez is a diamond in the ‘ruff.’  He’s so excited to be with people, he’s not sure how he’s supposed to behave.  The last couple of nights I’ve been at Elijah's House, he’s snuggled with me and given a lot of kisses.”

    “Gomez is a very exuberant young man who will make someone a wonderful and loyal companion.  He has a sweet and infectious personality that at times gets overshadowed by his exuberance.  I really like this guy!  He might seem rambunctious at first, but once you get past that first impression you’ll find a boy with a loving heart.  At 10 months, Gomez is still going through his puppy stages and would benefit from being in an environment where he can mature into a loving and loyal boy.  I wouldn’t suggest Gomez go to a home with young children, only because of his size and being such an energetic puppy.  He should be fine with pre-teen and older children."
 
    "Gomez was great again tonight.  He snuggled with me in his run and gave me so many kisses I had to laugh."

    “Nobody loves toys more than Gomez!  That can be useful when a dog is highly motivated for something, because that gives you a handle to use in training, and Gomez is definitely toy motivated.”

    “We’ve figured out Gomez’s preferred learning method:   Exercise first, then train, then treats. We’ve been working on manners and he is making good progress.”

    “Gomez was so cute today. We were collecting leaves in the exercise fields and he would run around picking up sticks.  It looked as though he was trying to help us!”

 
He's also good when loose inside the kennel, although comically he likes to pick new toys off the shelves in the boutique!  Overall, he really is beginning to amuse himself and is getting into less "trouble."  Anyone who knows dogs will recognize that this is a terrific boy who just needs finishing as he matures into adulthood.  His high degree of enthusiasm suggests he will be “all in” with anything he is encouraged and trained to do, and he will be as devoted and loving as he is enthusiastic. He's made a lot of progress in his short time here and has accordingly increased in wisdom and favor in the process.
 
If you have the consistent ability to love and continue the training this bundle of enthusiasm as he matures into the outstanding companion his was born to be, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come spend some time observing and interacting with him.  He’s sure to win your heart if you do.
