Hello Everyone! My name is Cardi. If you are looking for a pocket Doberman, I may be just right for you. I am black and tan, and built like a Doberman, but much, much smaller. I am not rough and tumble -- I like to be petted and cuddled, to play with stuffed squeaky toys, and to hang out on soft beds. Hope to see you soon! Love, Cardi.

Miss Cardi appears to be a Miniature Pinscher mix. She is estimated to be eight months old and weighs just under 30 pounds.

-Sweet, cheerful girl
-Friendly and affectionate; loves to snuggle
-Low prey drive -- zero interest in squirrels

-Loves to play with soft squeaky toys

Training & Socialization:

-Walks well on a leash
-Enjoys meeting new people and socializing
-Has been fine when left loose in one room for a half day
-Enters her crate on the command "crate" and remains confined in there for short periods after meals.
-Rides well in the car.

Cardi has now accompanied foster mom to work a couple of times. She was calm during the commute, navigated the big scary doors and the stairwell with ease, and had a good time visiting with all of foster mom's colleagues. She spent most of the day napping or playing quietly with her toys and did not have a single potty accident. Good job Cardi!

Cardi Cardi is currently being fostered in Doswell, VA.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
