Tulip, Doberman pinscher
Tulip is a female Doberman pinscher dog staying at Bluegrass Doberman Rescue.
Tulip gets along well with cats and dogs. Fear not: She is already house-trained. Tulip is already spayed and vaccinated.
Notes from Tulip's caretakers:
Tulip was adopted from BlueGrass as a half grown pup then returned several months later due to financial hardship. She is the typical Velcro Doberman, loves to snuggle, escort you to the bathroom and if there is no room for her in your chair, she will stand with her head in your lap. Her "sit" is impeccable, she sits for leash without asking, currently working on loose leash walking.

Piper is a four-year-old dark blue girl who came to us from a shelter with very itchy skin. We have been working on her skin issues and she is significantly better though still a work in progress (you can see the changes in her profile pictures). She was found to be low thyroid and will need an inexpensive medicine for this.

Sashi loves other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Polo K-9, however, recommends she be placed in a home without small children. She's already house-trained. Sashi is already spayed and vaccinated. Sashi is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.
Here's what Sashi's friends at Polo K-9 think of her:
Sashi is amazing an is the love of her fosters' life. But her foster wants her to have more. She is extremely dedicated and loyal. She would do anything for her family. Sashi is a very outgoing and loving girl, but because of her cane corso genetics would do good in a home with minimal foot traffic and someone who can be firm about strangers not touching her.
