Introducing Dug, a handsome house-trained Doberman Pinscher mix. Dug lives with other dogs in his foster home and does fine with them. This means Dug can live in a home with other dogs.

Dug loves attention and being petted. He is very sweet and submissive and seems to love his people deeply. Dug melts his foster's heart!

Dug came to APA! a cautious, fearful boy. Now in foster, he's learning that the world can be a very safe, fun place. Dug is getting used to house sounds, routines, getting familiar with the backyard, and resting and relaxing. His perfect day now includes finding a new toy to chew, getting pets from people and lots of treat rewards, and meeting with his dog friends in the home.

He's also getting more comfortable with the world outside the home. Dug sometimes leash walks really well, but still can be nervous because of things like car sounds, so he is mostly comfortable in the backyard. He also has decided the crate is his safe space. He is fine there all night and goes in and rests at other times.

Dug will love to move in with gentle people who are ready to spend time with him and help him continue growing confidence. He is very dog friendly and another social dog buddy will be great. Dug is a big boy so a secure yard is important.

Do you have room in your heart and a place in your home for the handsome, sweet, loving Dug? Come meet Dug today!
