This pretty Dobergirl came to us from a home where the invisible fence was no longer keeping her in on the occasions when she saw something to chase.  She lived with other dogs in her former home, and they all got along well, but other, non-canine critters were at risk.  She has a high prey drive and will need to be in a yard with an actual fence in order to prevent her getting a neighbor’s cat, for instance

A high prey drive is a common thing among dogs, and Dobers are no exception. I’ve had several who would chase down a rabbit or groundhog and send it to critter heaven, thinking they’d done the world a great service in the process.  Benni seems to be one of those. 

As for favorite toys and games, she likes to fetch balls, and she ran along with the ATVs in her former home.  She likes to chew bones, and she had a toy basket where she knew to go to get her toys. (But she rarely put them back when done - no surprises there!)  She would often leave a bone near the door when going out and pick it up again when she came back in.

That having been said, it’s an easy thing to keep a dog from being able to go after other small animals, and it really needn’t diminish their place in the family at all.  In my case, in nearly fifty years one neighbor cat was shaken nearly to death, and that was when it was out of its yard in a common area of woods. (Why it didn’t run up one of the many trees all around, I’ll never know.) 

Volunteer comments:
          "Benni is one of the sweeter girls I've met since I started volunteering. She will probably wind up a cuddle bunny for the right family.  She's very respectful of people and seems to prefer a nice rub and personal attention to playing catch and chasing toys in the field.  She has a mature spirit about her and will be a good dog for adventure but is also very accepting of a slower pace.  And she's easy to walk on a leash." 

“Benni was just slightly shy with me at first but warmed up beautifully and was accepting of any and all attention I gave her. She was also perfectly content relaxing in Mama Carol’s office and chewing on a delicious treat.”

          "Benni is a love bug.  She lies with her head on my lap, and when I stop petting her she nudges my hand for me to continue."

    “Benni has a beloved toy that she carries with her every time she goes out.  Once she’s outside in the fields, she’s a real explorer and very curious.  But when it’s time to come back in, the toy must come with her!”

    “Benni is a quiet, gentle Dobie; she doesn’t raise a ruckus.”


All in all, this looks like an excellent companion and house dog, provided the yard is fenced. If she seems like a good fit for your home, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and come spend some time getting to know her. I think you’ll find she’s a great gal and will be a welcome addition to your home, should you decide to make her part of your family.
