This precious little Doberpup came to us from her second owner, having been with her first owner very briefly.  My guess is the first owners had no idea what is required in raising a puppy until they were faced with the necessity.

Part of the problem in this case and in many others is over crating.  Crates can be useful when use is limited and for a particular purpose, but leaving a dog in a crate for long periods of time simply to keep it out of the way or as a means of restraint when no one is home all day is irresponsible parenting.  In this instance, this little girl was crated so much she didn’t have the opportunity for proper training, and thus she was behind the curve when she arrived at Elijah’s House.


So her first owners gave her away, and since they hadn’t house-trained her, the new owner was tasked with trying to complete that process.  Unfortunately, this second owner lived in an apartment building and wasn’t able to consistently get her to the outdoors when she needed to go (plus he worked and she had to be left alone for long periods), so her continued training was haphazard. Thankfully he realized she needed more than he could give, and he surrendered her to DRT.



When she arrived at Elijah’s House, she didn't know the difference between pee or poop inside or out. In just a couple of days, we have it down to limited amount of accidents, with only peeing inside. She's 85% of the way to being completely housetrained and will shortly be 100%, so no worries there. Being a puppy, and clearly having lacked any type of substantive training prior to coming to us, she does need some work with leash, mouthiness, and jumping. However, she is sweet, smart, and wants to please, so a little consistent training along with maturing will make all the difference there.

Volunteer comments:
   “This little girl is happy and friendly! She just wants to play, even with our biggest Dobie!  She’s a lovely little Dobergirl, and someone will be very fortunate to adopt her!”

As you can see from her pictures, she’s just as cute as can be, even if she does still need to grow into those ears! If you’re interested in making her a part of your family and continuing to train her into the outstanding adult she will become, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and come see and spend a little time with her in person. Just be prepared to take her home if you do, because you know you’re not going to be able to resist her.
