Hi everyone!

My name is Ernie and I am a 3 year old neutered male Doberman.

Please read my criteria carefully before applying as I have very specific needs and due to time constraints we can only reply to messages that fit the bill 🙂

🐾 A very experienced home who can prove their experience with difficult dogs

🐾 Adult only home without visiting children

🐾 A home free from other dogs and all other animals 

🐾 I am worried by too many people at once 

I am an extremely anxious boy who will need a home dedicated to my training and ability to cope in new situations. I have bundles of energy and this energy needs to be channelled positively and constructively.

I will need to go back to basics in most areas: there is a clever, loyal dog underneath my anxiety.

I have lived with another dog but am under socialised with new dogs and this presents itself as frustration when meeting new dogs.

I will need a home where someone is at home for most of the day and the garden must be very secure.

I have bitten during situations that were extremely stressful for me and not managed appropriately.

I will keep my new owners on their toes for sure, but the right person will be rewarded ten fold for their hard work.

Please only consider sending in a form if you are certain that you have the time, the experience and the dedication to help me on my journey in a new home. This can be found at the bottom of this page.
