Our Sonny is a handsome fella who is so charismatic that his shelter handlers enlisted him to soothe other shy and fearful dogs. Shelter life is never a cakewalk for these dogs, but Sonny’s buoyant good nature carried him through like a champ.

Sonny is a large, strong dog at 75 pounds. He appears to be a Doberman Pinscher, mixed with a smidge of German Shepherd. Just one year old, Sonny was surrendered by owners who were ill-prepared to handle an older puppy. Sonny became an immediate shelter staff favorite, with his sweet personality and playful temperament.

It's not often that a dog navigates the rescue process with such grace. Sonny has proven to be friendly and tolerant of all handling, even at the Vet. Nothing seems to faze him. He is good with all people and other dogs, and would thrive in any type of home situation.

Sonny is ready to start his next life chapter. He is at the beginning of a great life and he has a lot of love to give his new family. Sonny has a BIG personality and is a gentle, loving boy. He would be a great companion to active folks who are accustomed to large, high energy breeds. He is an active boy who needs ongoing Obedience work and sufficient exercise to keep his yayas in check.

Sonny has a very genial nature. He is a sociable dog, and while he has had little background in obedience, he has grasped the basics and seems to enjoy the training exercises. He is food motivated, and responds well to positive reinforcement training techniques.

Sonny could easily join a multi-dog home, with proper introduction and supervision. He has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He is neutered and has received routine vaccinations and health screenings.
