Yes, this dog is young and beautiful, but please read her whole bio and only apply if you can meet her specific needs to ensure her success. Previously approved adopters get priority, and we will process new applications in the order they are received to place her with the most ideal match for her success. Lexi and her brother were purchased from a rural backyard breeder as a pair, and a year later, the family realized that was not a good idea. When work changed and required hours of extra commuting a day, any extra time to devote to training these two was lost. And training a puppy pair is often more than twice as much work due to ‘littermate syndrome,’ which is why this co-dependent couple will be split up for their benefit. Lexi is about to turn a year old (DOB 11/22/16), so she is still a very active, young, and busy working dog. She is a typical female Dobe, demanding attention and being pushy or mouthy when your hand isn’t on her. She wore the pants in this relationship. Lexi is housebroken, but she has the occasional submissive dribble when she is taken aback. She doesn’t have much experience on a leash due to running in the corn fields, so she needs practice and training on leash. She is not a good candidate for leash walks in a busy city neighborhood. Due to growing up with her brother, Lexi would appreciate being placed with another dog–preferably a male. Her previous owner said she did not pursue the outside cats, but we aren’t confident that will translate to being able to live with them indoors. Lexi was fine around the resident grandchild, so she can be considered for homes with kids 7 and up who know how to act appropriately around big dogs. Her favorite toys are a frozen water bottle, bones, and a stuffie.
