Introducing The Newest Addition To The Fur Family!
I’m a bit late with this, but I suppose it’s better late than never, eh?
Ever since Zeus (my baby Doberman puppy) passed away, I’ve been a total wreck, and in some ways I’m still not over it. I can’t help but wonder what he would have turned out to be like.
Anyway, ever since then I’ve been longing for another Doberman. Well, a couple of weeks ago my search for another Doberman puppy came to an end when I found one in my local animal shelter (lucky find, I know). I initially said “no” because he is docked and cropped (and cropped very badly, I might add, his ears flop over his head like a GSD puppy’s), and I have a preference for natural ears and natural tail (not to mention I’m 100% against docking and cropping and wish they’d just make it illegal already). Anyway, then I got to thinking and you know, he had no say in the matter, why should I hold it against him? It’s always unusual to find breeds normally touted as status symbols in the shelter, so I don’t know what his background was like. Whatever, he needed a home all the same so I brought him home.
He wasn’t what I had in mind, but I have no regrets. He’s an amazing dog. With that, I’d like you to meet my new furry friend Zephyrus:
Isn’t he adorable?
