Sadie is an adorable kid friendly, petite, red, docked and cropped 2 year old Doberman. Sadie weighs approximately 50lbs and loves to wear a fleece sweater in and out of the house. She is house broken and crate trained although she does not need a crate in her foster home. She loves to snuggle with you but is also content to nap on the furniture by herself. She will even get under the covers in bed if you let her. She loves to give kisses, including your nose and eyes. She loves toys and will fetch like a playful Doberman (a few throws and mostly keeps the toy just out of reach) and tug. She will also happily chew on a bone or antler. She is ok on a leash, sometimes walking nicely in front and sometimes pulling. She is not possessive of her food or toys with humans but can be with other dogs. She does not appear to have much interest in meeting or playing with other dogs. Prior to being surrendered by her family, she was an only dog and can be quite frightened by other dogs. Loud noises do scare her and she is quick to recover but you will need to keep this in mind if you are outdoors on leash to ensure she does not run away and get hurt. For a 2 year old, she is quite calm and easy. She likes her 30 minute walk each day. She was briefly in a foster with a small dog and this did not work out as she picked on the small dog. Sadie is the typical Doberman and doesn’t want to be left behind and will follow you all over the house, including the bathroom. She likes her neck massaged and her butt scratched too. She will require that you establish and enforce rules and boundaries and would benefit from an obedience class for socialize and bonding. She does knows basic commands but don’t expect to call her and grab her collar right away as she will keep just out of reach. She can play rough and get mouthy at times too with her foster dad but not so much her foster mom. She can be quite vocal but is not a heavy barker. A couple of bad habits that she does have are scratching at doors to go out and come inside and throwing a little tantrum when locked in a crate.
