He fit right in!
We adopted Bogey in November of 2016, and already, it’s like he’s always been with us. Within three months, he’s learned dozens of tricks, has incredible recall, and is great with everyone and everything we come across. He’s made best friends with our cat and two other dogs, and adapted quickly to our lives, rules, and routine. While we were told he was a blanket chewer and potential food thief, we’ve not had a single issue regarding these, as Bogey cares so much about pleasing us that a simple, “Nope,” and firm glance is all it takes to get him back on track. He’s learned everything so quickly, it’s hard to believe he was ever a shelter dog prior to Doberman Rescue taking him in! The highlight of our day is taking Bogey to a nearby fenced off-leash trail and watching him run and explore to his heart’s content. He always rubber-bands back to us though, and seems deeply bonded to us despite having joined our family just a few months ago. We love our new addition and look forward to spending many years together!
