Judging from his pictures, you could make your own Doberman calendar with shots of just this dog!  What a handsome fellow he is!  And who cares about the flopped ear?  His natural handsomeness in combination with his outstanding personality more than make up for that minor distinction.  In fact, he looks kind of jaunty with it.

Having come to us about 7 December, we named him in memory of Pearl Harbor.  But don’t think of that as a negative thing.  Merriam-Webster defines vortex as “a mass of spinning air, liquid, etc., that pulls things into its center,” and this handsome fellow is sure to pull you in to his center even as he takes a place in the center of your heart.

His owners surrendered him because he snapped at them when they were pushing him into his crate.  I’m shaking my head at their methods and not surprised that he objected.  It sounds as though he was crated a lot because he did a lot of running around and getting into things.  Look, this is a two-year-old, for crying out loud.  It’s what they do for two years of being puppies.   Fact is, he’s just coming to the age where he’ll begin to settle into adulthood, and with the proper guidance, he’ll turn out just fine.  

These are very intelligent, energetic, working dogs, and if they aren’t given some proper training and a “job” to do, they’re going to make their own excitement.  It’s as simple as that.  Fortunately, they long to please their humans, so if an owner establishes expectations and gently but consistently holds the line, they’ll come around.  Left to their own devices, they’re just as likely to create mayhem.  

Another part of his incomplete training is evident in his strong pulling on leash, but he will listen and respond when corrected gently by tug on the slip lead.  This is just a handsome, intelligent, engaging and engaged young Dober who is eager to be all in with whatever is going on.

Volunteer comments:
    “This boy is a hoot!  Loves to play and tease, with just great personality - a great dog.  He easily walked with me to the playground area and wanted loving and pets.  When it was time to head back he wasn’t ready to stop playing, so he did some zoomies past us, daring us to chase and play!”

    “Vortex is a whirlwind of energy - just a beautiful Doberboy!  He has the looks that stop people in their tracks.  He’s a total attention magnet, and he will definitely get lots of compliments. In his past he was over-crated, so he’s very excited to just be outside.  He runs around enthusiastically, and you can literally see the smile on his face.  He’s a lot to handle on leash due to being strong and without much training.  But he appears to be a very willing learner who should make rapid progress.  We are also working on him to keep from jumping up on people, since his lack of training and exuberance take over.  He just really wants to let you know how excited he is to be with you.  He loves the Jolly Ball outside and will participate whether it is tug-o-war or if you throw it and let him retrieve.  He is confident and curious, so it can be fun just watching him explore his new surroundings.  Despite being a little bit of challenge at this stage, he’s a GREAT Dober!


Nothing more needs to be said; make that appointment as soon as your application is approved.  He won’t be here long.
