Dante is an inferno of awesomeness! (…Get it, inferno? ’Cause of his name and all? Annnnyway…)
This handsome 1 & 1/2-year old Doberman Pinscher mix may take a little time to warm up to new people but once you guys are friends you will soon see his affectionate side, ready to offer cuddles and kisses!
Dante would love to find a home where his humans will be patient with him and committed to continuing his positive reinforcement training and confidence-building, especially around strangers, as the big world around him can seem rather scary and overwhelming at times. It also might be helpful for him to have another friendly & calm doggie in the home, so if you have one, be sure to bring them in for an intro to see if it’s a good fit.
Dante loves going out on long walks and will continue to benefit from ongoing training on loose-leash walking. And, while he enjoys the company of other mellow dogs, dog parks and beaches will likely be overwhelming for Dante as too many dogs jumping around can be scary and uncomfortable for this sensitive guy. He is extremely house-trained and treat-motivated and can’t wait to show you his potential!
Do you have the patience and love that Dante needs to truly shine? Come meet him today at our Escondido Campus!
