Ruby the Dobermann
Look at this stunner! Ruby is a beautiful black and red Dobermann girl who has just turned one year old. She has come via a breeder who was going to use her as part of their breeding programme but is now scaling back. Ruby comes from extensively health tested parents and her Grandad is actually a world champion show dog. Ruby will not be coming with papers and will need to go to a pet only home – absolutely not to be used for breeding and she will leave with a neutering agreement in place.
Ruby loves her food and will thrive with training as she is so motivated for a tasty treat. She has previously lived in kennels so will need some time to adjust to living in a home environment. Ruby can sit and is very intelligent but can be a bit high energy and over excitable – typical for her breed and age. She will need a confident new owner who has experience of large breeds and will put in the time to help Ruby flourish. She is fully vaccinated, flea and worm treated.
