Kane – Neutered Male
$1,000 + Travel Expenses
Kane is a 83.5% European Doberman. He’s large and if you ask him, he’d say he’s the one in charge, too. Kane lives in Wilmington, North Carolina for now, but is looking for new couches to surf. His mom is a traveling nurse and wants Kane to have a more interactive lifestyle. Kane has training. What this guy needs is exercise, and lots of it.
He is health tested and is AKC registered. He was born here, at The Kennel Birkline. He was raised with Early Neurological Stimulation, Early Scent Introduction, and our set regimen of early life experiences.
Kane will do very well with a family who is looking to skip the puppy stage and go straight to the FastCat or to Barn Hunting, to Obedience or Agility. This guy was bred to work, and he has a strong work ethic.
He is an active, sweet boy, who loves to cuddle, but wants to run everywhere he goes, drinks decaf despite what it looks like, and could tire out a toddler…really, he could.
Kane’s Bucket List:
- Fly to Germany to see the “Homeland”
- Achieve an obedience title
- Reach his top speed everyday
- Learn to dock dive
- Taste shark
- Snow ski in Colorado

Through Kane’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace his mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends.one of the original lineages in the wolves that were first domesticated into dogs in Central Asia about 15,000 years ago. Since then, the lineage has been very successful and travelled the globe! Dogs from this group are found in ancient Bronze Age fossils in the Middle East and southern Europe. By the end of the Bronze Age, it became exceedingly common in Europe.
Through Kane’s Y-chromosome we can trace his father’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. For most of dog history, this haplogroup was probably quite rare. However, a couple hundred years ago it seems to have found its way into a prized male guard dog in Europe who had many offspring, including the ancestors of many European guard breeds such as Doberman Pinchers.
