Star, Doberman pinscher

Here's what Star's friends at Doberman Rescue of Nevada think of her:
Are you a person with enough Doberman experience and savvy to be her leader? She needs genuine leadership from a strong-willed handler – her leader, not just an owner – because she wants to please you. But she wants love more than anything. And she wants to work. Star is very active, loves to fetch, walks perfectly on a leash and can be worked on and off a lead. But she must have continued leadership.
