Aden is a stunning 2 year old male cropped & docked doberman. He has been at the rescue the longest, and needs to be placed in a forever home. He is here through no fault of his own. He is an active, and extremely intelligent boy who needs guidance from an experienced owner who can embrace his spirit and give him the consistency he needs to thrive. He is good with other dogs when introduced slowly and carefully, but would do best as an only dog, or possibly with a female. A home without young children is essential for this boy.

About the breed: (borrowed from – http://www.dogster.com)
More than anything, these are people-oriented dogs, craving attention, positive reinforcement and quality time with the family. When properly trained and socialized, they can be sweet and easygoing with children.
Highly intelligent, Dobermans have a range of skills that include search & rescue, agility, and therapy work. When given a task and lots of mental stimulation, Doberman Pinschers will stay obedient and happy.
Dobermans, while loving to their families, can be very protective and suspicious of strangers. If they think their handler is being threatened, they will do anything to keep them out of harm’s way.
Don’t be afraid of your Doberman. They need a firm owner, and everyone in the house should know how to discipline them (in a very positive way, of course). They can get pushy if they have their way for too long. If you’re not prepared to work with your Doberman, you might try a more manageable breed.
Dobermans will be fine in an apartment as long as they get enough exercise and attention. They are probably not the best pets to have around small children.
A healthy Doberman can live as long as 12 years. Common health problems include heart disease, hip dysplasia and bloat. Protect them from cold weather climates—their short coats make them sensitive to the chill.
