Profile: Adan was born 7/19/14, and given Dana's name spelled a little differently. I knew I would be losing Dana shortly after getting him, so I wanted to pass on her name to him. Adan and I will be making los Angeles our playground, and leaving Chicago. That was Dana's playground.

Dana is a pedigree Doberman born 2-14-2004, went to Bridge 12-31-14. Trained as an alert dog, she works for me, a 44 yr old disabled man who has blackouts due to massive doses of narcotic pain medication needed as a result of a car accidentView Profile
This is Jodi, the brown and tan Doberman service dog in training. The avatar photo is at 5 weeks, 5 days. She was born this HalloweenView Profile
Duncan was born 24 March, 2011. He is a wonderfully quiet, calm, and well mannered little boy, and he is on his way to taking over Dana's job as my medical alert dog. Dana will take on the job of guard dog after she is retired. He seldom barks, and already knows several of his requests (I don't like the word "command"). We don't have Jodi anymore, though, since May 4th. She started to get aggressive with Dana in bed, and by the food bowls. She also had witnessed a certain group of ppl who were harassing me about service dog access, or about having a Doberman in a place like a bus, and took on the job of my protector from them. She would watch them like a hawk, and luckily, none of them ever said anything here in Chicago like they did back in New Orleans where I raised Jodi until she was 7 months old. Dana and Jodi also always had a K9 female vs K9 female for one human boy's attention and love thing going on. Duncan is playing with Dana, and Dana is warming up gradually by growling less and less at him. She thinks Duncan will turn out like Jodi, who was kinda irritable to Dana. Dana is a laid back Doberman, and Jodi nagged at her to play all the time. Jodi also had no respect for Dana's space, or for the fact that Dana is the senior dog. So, she's just letting Duncan know ASAP about her space, and that he respect it.View Profile
Ava was born on the 16th of June, 2012. She is being trained to take over for Dana since Duncan turned out to have such severe allergies that I wouldn't push him to be a working dog. So, now he lives in western Illinois on a farm. Ava and Dana get along great.View Profile
