Alie - Gorgeous Young Dobie
Seeks Active Family to Love
Susan Daffron talks to Don Helfrich from Doberman Rescue of New Mexico about a 10-month-old female Doberman named Alie who is looking for a new home. She has "natural" ears and tail, which means they aren't cropped. She came to Doberman Rescue after being found as a stray with two siblings (both of whom have been adopted). Alie was extremely thin when she arrived, but thanks to lots of TLC in her foster home, she has filled out and is now a gorgeous dog with a gleaming black and tan coat. She has learned how to use the doggie door, walks well on a leash, and is housebroken.
Alie is still basically a puppy and is still in the chewing phase. Plus, Dobermans are large dogs, so Alie will need an owner who is willing to be a leader and take her to obedience classes where she can learn more socialization skills. She tends to be wary meeting other dogs, probably due to her lack of socialization earlier in her life. But after Alie has determined that other dogs are friendly, she'll happily romp and play with them. Alie loves people and Don says that like many Dobermans, she's a "leaner" that enjoys receiving affection. Since she's only 10 months old, her puppy nature comes out whenever she encounters a human who wants to play with her. This beautiful dog had a tough beginning, but will thrive in a new home with an active family who loves her.
