Hello! My name is


My name is Abby and I am about 2 1/2 years old. I am a very intelligent and playful girl with a lot of energy.  I like to play with all sorts of toys and to put all things that I discover into my mouth to see what they are.  So here is a little update about me:

I may be strong-minded and somewhat stubborn but I do take direction well.  In fact, I love to learn!  I am getting so good at listening to my foster dad!  I can be very excitable, after all, I still have a lot of puppy in me but I am learning to listen to him and settle down.  I am a bit hesitant with new people but I warm up quickly and I ride ever so nicely in the car.  I am a very smart girl and I just want to learn and grow.   I am learning and growing all of the time.

The truth is, I do not want to run a household.  I want to grow up to be a confident well trained, well-adjusted girl who pleases her family.  I want an owner who understands the needs of the adolescent and has the patience, confidence and intelligence to train me properly.   I will make them so proud if given a chance.

My foster dad says I am very good in letting a groomer trim my nails. I do not fence fight with neighbor dogs and I have learned to sit and wait patiently before being let outside to play. He has also worked with me on crate training and potty training and I am doing so well!

When I am playing with my foster brother I often forget that I am a little bigger than he is so I do best in a home with dogs close to my own size.  If you own a cat please do not apply for me

My future family must:

– Be experienced with young Dobies/working dogs.  Recent experience, not something that happened 20 years ago.

– Be patient, confident, consistent and very willing to take me to class or work with the proper trainer.

-No children under 12.
