We're often approached by animal shelters located in remote areas where adoptions are very low. Whenever possible we try to rescue a dog or two from these shelters, and the staff members identify those they like the best and advocate for. One such dog we took in April 6, 2022 is Cheryl, a 2-3 year Doberman mix. The shelter manager raved about how friendly and confident she was when out for walks and visits, and we agree. Ideally we think Cheryl should be the "alpha" dog if paired with another dog (preferably a male), but she has proven that she can share a kennel with another dog. She would probably be equally happy to be the only dog as well.
