Seems to ignore the cat.  Curious at first, then walks away.
Only older children.
 
This lean and leggy Doberteen came to us from a loving home where the medical needs and circumstances in the family prevented them from giving her the finishing attention she needed. (There was an autistic child who didn't understand about reasonable boundaries with a dog. He kept putting his face in the dog's face, and finally she not surprisingly snapped at him. This change will be better for the both of them.)
 
Her former owners loved her and had committed the time and expense to seeing that she was both obedience and behavior trained, but as most understand, once training has taken place, consistent repetition is needed to “fix” the training and have it become “automatic.”  So now she’s here with us, beauty that she is, awaiting a new home that can take the time to see her fully into maturity in the months ahead. Her training also included leash manners, so that’s another plus.

When greeting, she initially barks, then happily greets and allows petting. She’s affectionate with humans and good with other dogs. In fact, she was trying to play with the pup we had here. In short, she's an outstanding soon-to-be-adult Dobergirl, just waiting for a new home and family to call her own.

One thing she caught us by surprise with is, in her enthusiasm, occasionally she will jump up and kiss your face.  We’re not fans of this behavior, well-intended though it is, because it can startle people and could even result in a swollen lip if the distance was misjudged or the human was starting to lean down as the dog jumped up.  We’re working with her to either stop this entirely or to only do it on command (much as one might tell as dog to “Give me paw,” for instance.  She’s not a jumper as a rule, but this occasional, surprising, face slobber needs to be modified, and we’re working on it!


Volunteer comments:
    “She’s a fun-loving girl and full of energy. She’s past the puppy stage but still full of enthusiasm, and she loves to tease and turn everything into a game. I was picking up sticks outside and she pitched right in - grabbing sticks! She is very entertaining and will be a wonderful addition to an active family!”

   “Chutney is a GORGEOUS female - a definite head turner in the looks department. She is young and has a lot of puppy energy still, so she needs an active person an room to run. She is very curious and probably won't do well if left alone for long periods of time. Despite that concern, let me be clear: not only would I take this dog in a heartbeat; she might be my first pick! She has so much personality and will never fail to bring a smile to your face. She wants to do everything you do and be with you for whatever the day may bring. Someone who is willing to work with her a bit will get a great companion for many years to come!”

    “She LOVES to jump up on you and slobber your face with kisses. She is a water dog and will play endlessly with a hose spraying water. In fact, she had to leave the field where we were putting grass seed down, because she kept trying to play with the seed as it was being sprinkled and tried to pull the bag away from where we were working! She’s quite a character, for sure.”


There you have it. An outstanding teenybopper who is prime for a loving home and family that will finish helping her settle in to adulthood. If you think your home may be the one, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and come spend a bit of time observing and interacting with her. You’ll surely be taking her home, if you do.
