Doberman Pinscher

DJ (Destiny Jane--sort of like Calamity Jane) is my wonderful, intelligent, loving doberman.  She was a rescue of sorts, coming from a family who got her from a breeder and then within a week decided they could no longer keep her due to family issues, so they listed her on Craigslist.  I was so afraid that someone would answer the Craigslist ad just to use her as a fighter or a bait dog, that I ended up rescuing her myself, even though I already had a house full of dogs. 

Never have regretted that decision.  :)

DJ has had many training classes to date:  Obedience, Advanced Obedience, Basic agility, scentwork, rally-obedience novice classes, drive-building workshops, and we are still in the process of doing more and more training.  Deej is one of the smartest dobermans I have ever had, but in the same turn, one of the most defiant at times.  She is a clown and not a day goes by that she fails to make me laugh.  I truly love this dog with all my heart.
