Neptune came to us at the beginning of September, 2020 from an upstate animal shelter that declared him "highly affiliative." He leaned in for petting, allowed all handling, and seemed to enjoy training. Neptune came to his handlers when called and then oriented to lean against them. He will need a little training for his tendency to jump up sometimes and to softly mouth his handler. Unfortunately, as is customary of many white Dobermans, he has some visual deficiency; in other words, he can see, but not as well as he should. White Dobermans also tend to develop melanomas (skin cancers) as they age, so ideally they should have a vet exam at least every six months to be checked and treated, if necessary. Neptune is about 3 years old and he weighs 72 pounds. Neptune gets along beautifully with a female Doberman but smaller dogs bring out his prey drive. We have seen a couple of negative behaviors since Neptune's arrival and though we really like him, they should be noted for any potential adopters. Neptune lives nicely with his female companion, often playing with her, but he is extremely strong and reactive towards other dogs on leash. Training will be necessary to take him out for walks if other dogs are around. He did also recently show quite the territorial side when introduced to a new person on the other side of the fence. Care should be taken with a secure fence and careful introductions to new people.
