Reston Pet of the Week: Autumn

Becky's Pet Care

Autumn the Doberman

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Autumn, a 1-year-old Doberman Pinscher who needs a forever home. Here is what her people at DARE: Doberman Assistance, Rescue and Education have to say about her:

Meet our pretty little red girl, Autumn. She is a super smart, cuddly and playful 1- year-old red/rust female Doberman.

Autumn has perky natural ears, a docked tail and currently weighs about 50 lbs. She will fill out a bit more as she matures, but will be a petite girl that is just the perfect size for cuddling on the sofa with you on these cool fall evenings.

Autumn loves balls and collects as many as she can. She enjoys running around the yard and will occasionally let you have one to throw for her. Autumn would like to have a home with a fenced yard so she can run around freely or to lay next to her human sunning herself.

Autumn is good with children and will be fine in a home with dog-savvy children. She is fine meeting other dogs but wants to be the only dog living in her home so she can be the dober-princess.

Autumn rides well in a car and is house trained. She can be crated but we baby gate her in the kitchen when we are not home and she is fine with that. Autumn thinks cats are fun to chase so no kitties for Autumn. If you are looking for a fun, affectionate, smart companion Autumn may be the girl for you! I
