Meet Miss Abby!! 

I went to Gorgeous Model school!!

This is what I learned:  Right Face, Center, Left Face...

See what I mean?? Training pays!!
While you're here... Please take a look at my BFF The Duke!!

Beautiful 7 year-old Abby came to rescue with her best friend Duke after her owners lost their home and business. A relative took them in and although these two sweet dogs were perfectly house trained they threw them outside where they lived for 2 years. When their previous owners found out about their situation they got them back and brought them to Southwest Ohio Doberman Rescue. It is hard to imagine two sweeter dogs than Abby and Duke. They are dog, cat, and kid friendly. They know sit, down, and shake and play nicely with their toys. They even put themselves to bed at night as their foster mom leaves their kennel doors open for them. They do not need to be crated but feel safe sleeping in their crates. They eat nicely in the same room with the other foster dogs in the home. They may be 7 but you would never know it as they are young-looking and acting. All these two lovely Seniors need to be happy is to live inside the home with their family and get petted, to snuggle, and play with you. This bonded pair are described by their foster mom as a delight. Unfortunately, Abby has tested positive for heartworms and will need to be treated before she finds her new forever home. These two sweethearts have been together since they were puppies and it has been decided they will not be separated but will need to go to a home who will adopt and love them both for the rest of their days! You can visit BFF Duke here

Special Needs If Any: Heartworm treatment which will be done before she can be adopted.
