Male, To be Neutered
45 lbs (at 6 months and growing)
Adoption Fee: $150 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)
Tango has not be neutered yet. Due to some early musculoskeletal development issues that have since resolved, our vet recommends neutering Tango closer to him being a year old. We CANNOT finalize any adoption until Tango has been neutered. Potential adopters will have to foster Tango for Nobody’s Perfekt Dogs until he is ready to be neutered - NO EXCEPTIONS!
Also, we will NOT consider any applications from families that plan on altering his appearance (docking the tail or cropping the ears) - NO EXCEPTIONS!
Tango was abandoned on the streets of Oakland at about 8 weeks old, maybe due to a condition called “puppy carpal laxity syndrome” which is common in Dobermans but with proper nutrition, they usually grow out it. It appears that Tango has also grown out of it. There have been no issues lately.
He needs lots of training and socialization. He is still not willingly walking on a leash (and is getting too heavy to carry everywhere). He gets along well with the other dogs/puppies in his puppy socialization class and at the adoption center. He is not yet house broken. Tango lives with a senior cat (which he occasionally torments while trying to play), but no other dogs are in the home. We feel Tango’s development might go much more quickly if there is another large dog in the home (that can tolerate a puppy’s playfulness). Tango loves to cuddle and climb all over his foster family, which is becoming less enjoyable for them as he gets bigger.
