Allegra is an all natural, sweet, loving and energetic three year old. Like most Dobermans, she doesn't quite know her size (glorified lap dog!) and we're not sure if she knows her tail is attached to her body. She loves to run in the backyard and is always smiling, thus having earned the nickname 'Bubbles' in her foster home. She is timid with new people and takes a little bit of time to warm up, but once she does she's the typical velcro Doberman. She is crate trained and thoroughly enjoys it as her safe place to decompress. Her foster family is working on her leash etiquette, yet she can still get riled up with aggressive dogs behind fences (who doesn't?!). Allegra is a 'dog dog' meaning her forever home must have another dog who is energetic and ready to play. In our limited experience, she does well with cats and kiddos. She sits, stays, shakes paws, eats a bunch of fruits and vegetables, loves meal time, going on walks, car rides, and playing in the snow and water, and (gently) hunting lizards. Allegra would be happiest in a family who hikes or goes camping often and encourages her to play in rivers and lakes encountered along the way. Allegra had a trauma at some point in her young life where she sustained injury to her hip and front left paw. She underwent a hip replacement in December with an extensive 12 week recovery being confined to a 4'x4‰'Û· pen, only allowed out for supervised potty breaks with a hip sling, short strolls, and meals. We were so impressed how she did during her recovery! She did not destroy her bed or any blankets, and did very well with a rotation of squeak toys and antler chews. She will need another surgery to correct her front left foot, and will require her being confined to a pen for eight weeks with constant supervision with monitored walks and meal times. This surgery will be paid for by DRNM and performed by Dr. Schwarz at the Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center of Albuquerque. We are looking for a family that is dedicated to Allegra's surgery and recovery needs, and continued monitoring of her health for the rest of her life with the likelihood of arthritis down the road.
