Good with large dogs.  Will play with the large dogs, but doesn't like it if they jump on her back.
Not interested in the cat.  Sometimes will try to play with it, but can get a little rough.
Good with older children.
Some of you old-timers may recall the “Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award” from the madcap 60s TV show, “Laugh-In.”  (If you’re not familiar and are curious, you know what to do.)  :-)

Rona’s story reminds me of that.  It seems her owner, a teenage girl who moved in with her boyfriend at his mother’s house, ended up liking his best friend better and then decided to get a apartment on her own so she could “find herself.”  (See?  60s.) 

So she moved out, leaving her dog with the mother because she works all day and didn’t want the dog to be alone.  (Besides, the mother had come to love the dog.)  The trouble was, seeing the dog around all the time was aggravating the wound in the son’s heart, so the dear mother reluctantly made the decision to find a home for the dog.  (Maybe she should have found a home for the son instead!)  If this is confusing and soap-opera-like to you, you’re on the right track.  Cue the dramatic organ music.

Fortunately for the dog she’s here with us now, and a lovely senior Dober she is.  She’s a pretty girl who, as a senior, is “settled” and mature in her ways.  She can still be had though, and will do most anything for a treat, including sitting, giving kisses, and shaking a paw. She also knows to "lay" and stay on command.

Being an older girl, she doesn't like to be surprised.  She also is not a fan of someone reaching over her when she’s lying down or of being pulled by the collar as most Dobermans.  She just prefers to be treated with kindness and respect like the lady she is.  One of my Doberboys years ago didn’t want anyone close by when he ate, didn’t want his paws touched, and didn’t want anyone above him when he was on his bed.  Those three taboos honored, and he was a great fellow who lived a long and happy life (14 years!)  We all have our preferences, and not surprisingly, some dogs do too.
 
When she was turned in, her bolstered dog bed and two pillows that she especially likes to put her head on when sleeping came with her.  (Shades of my Dobers resting their heads on the sofa arm or on the arm rest in the car when they sleep.)

Volunteer comments:
    “Rona is one sweet gal - a good companion for someone who hates being alone - very loving.”
 
     "Rona is a beauty with a sweet disposition to match!  She greeted me with kisses right as I walked through the door as though she had known me for years.  She’s obviously very loving and affectionate, and I know she’ll be happy with anyone who will take her home.  I would take her in a heartbeat if my Hercules wasn’t so needy and jealous!  It would break his heart so I can’t, unfortunately."
 

This is simply a gentle, loving older Dober who wants nothing more than a peaceful, considerate home where she can snuggle with her human and take walks now and then - a place where she is nurtured and loved and respected.  

If you think your home may be a fit, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and come spend a little time making of her and getting to know her.  Chances are if you do, you won’t be leaving without her.
