This large Doberboy is unique within our beloved breed.  You can see from his pictures how handsome he is.  But if you look carefully, you may sense something else about him, too.  He’s remarkably calm, and his calmness actually seems to have a soothing effect on others, including other animals.

For instance, recently he was in a run next to Franchese.  Now Franchese is a lovely girl, but she always barks at another dog on the other side of the fence from her.  Much to our surprise, with Satchel it was different.  She ran up to the fence, barking, and mid-bark she actually just stopped still.  It was as though she was overcome by his calmness, and she started interacting with him on a pleasant level.  This was a first, and it left us scratching our heads in wonderment.  Chances are, he'd be an excellent candidate for training/certification as a therapy dog if his new owner were so inclined.

He’d been with his former home since he was a pup, but as too often happens, his human was relocating, the policy of the new place does not allow “certain breeds/sizes of dogs.”  So Satchel is now with us, albeit briefly, as he awaits a new home.

He knows the basic commands to sit, stay, shake, and wait.  And at his former home, he loved running freely around the farm and playing in the creek during his daily exercise time outside.

Volunteer comments:
    “Satchel is a large-frame Dober that is comfortable in his own skin.  He doesn't seem to let the other dogs bother him or get him too excited.  As a matter of fact, I don't think I heard him bark the entire day.  I got to walk him this weekend, and he did well.  He pulled a little bit at the start but settled in nicely, and we enjoyed the time together.  This was our first day together and it is amazing how much a walk will bond a Doberman to you.  He was nice and gentle upon introduction, and after the walk we were fast friends!  That tells me he’s ready to trust and bond with whoever is lucky enough to adopt him.”

You’d have to look long and hard to find a better fellow than this one, so don’t hesitate to make an appointment to meet him as soon as your application is approved.  He’s not going to be here for long.
