This stunningly handsome Doberboy was left in a back yard when the people who lived in the house moved away. (I’ll refrain from calling them his family; I know you understand.)

Someone apparently called the shelter, and he was taken there. Rescue angels then arranged his transport to Elijah’s House, where he is now safe and cared for and loved as he awaits his new (and evidently first) proper home.

While he is healthy, it looks as though his previous people did little to train him. I guess that’s not surprising from people who will abandon a dog.

He’s very strong and energetic (rambunctious might be the better word!), and the combination of his natural size and strength, lack of training, joyful exuberance, and keen desire to be engaged, makes him two handfuls and more! This boy is raw, good-natured power, and he’ll need someone who knows how to manage that exuberance and who has the experience to patiently and lovingly train this fabulous raw material into the exceptional finished Dober he will surely become. In short, this one’s not for the faint of heart, but properly trained, the rewards will be outstanding.

At this point, on leash he’d do better as a sled dog with the way he pulls. (He could be a one-dog team!) Well, except that in addition to pulling, he wants to chew on the leash when he’s on it!

As exuberant Dobers sometimes do until they’re taught not to, he’ll jump up (again, sheer enthusiasm), and also as is common with many Dobers, he expresses himself with his mouth - to be sure, not biting, just an energetic Doberman’s way of being engaged and getting attention before he’s trained not to do so. (My personal Doberboy is remarkably similar to this one, and I recognize all these behaviors and characteristics very well!)

One of our volunteers shares these observations:
    “Junius is very energetic, friendly, playful, and athletic, and he loves to run!  He pulled on the leash but didn’t jump up.  He likes to lean or bump into you and kind of knocked me off balance a couple of times.  He seems unfamiliar with and to not want the leash put over his head, so I had to “chase” his head to get the loop over.”

And another shares this bit of enrichment:
    Junius…I just love that name. In Latin, it means young, and that is downright perfect for this striking boy!  When I saw him for the first time, my only word was “wow!” because he is THAT beautiful- stop-you-in-your-tracks handsome.  He is extremely energetic and strong, and he needs lots of room to run and play!  He listens well for a pup and really just wants to please his human.  If you love being showered with love and kisses, this guy is the one!

Yet another:

Junius is an energetic boy who likes to play. He’ll need an owner who understands his youthful energy and is willing to spend the time to work with him. He would be better suited to an experienced Dobe owner who shares some of Junius’ energetic tendencies. I’d suggest a home with older children only because of his size and exuberance. He is very friendly and not the least bit aggressive and loved getting out, running around, and helping me haul away some brush to the woods. One time I had one end of a tree limb and he had the other as we walked it to the woods. I think he really  wanted to play tug-o-war and we both had fun.



The good news is, Dobers long to please their humans, and the right person, one who understands and is experienced with Dobers, will make this wonderful raw material over into an unparalleled, lifetime companion.

So if you’re one who is experienced and is drawn to this terrific boy (I’d like to keep him myself), make an appointment to meet him and see for yourself if his level of energy and potential is something you would like to take on. If you are the one who chooses to make him part of your family and to develop and refine his natural talents, I’m confident you’ll both be richly rewarded.
