Dobey is a gentle, little fellow that likes to give kisses.  He enjoys playing with other dogs and is social in every aspect.  He came to us from West Virginia and would like to find his forever home with someone that can give him love and kisses too.

“Dobey is a fast learner, very lovable and smart.  He doesn’t always do it but sometimes he will bring the ball back to me when I throw it.  He does good off the leash as well, even with the other dogs around and will follow me around the track and listens to corrections.”

“The introduction stage is the most important because this is the time when the dog and handler establishes a relationship, which is vital to help the dog get adopted.  Dobey listens real well to directions and knows the sit command pretty well (only here 4 days) and walks well on and off the leash.  He knows his name when called and plays really well with the other dogs.  Dobey stays in his crate during the night without making any noise or anything.”

06-05-2012 (Arrival in the Prison Program)

Dobey began his training today in the prison program and made instant friends with the other dogs in the program.  He hopes to learn new skills for his new owner though he is already a polite little guy and walks well on a leash.

Prison Pup, date of parole: 06/23/2012
