About Us
Jaga, the Pet of the Day
Name: Jaga
Age: 16 months old
Gender: Male
Breed: Doberman
Home: Texas, USA
   Jaga came to us by way of the Brazos Valley Doberman Rescue Organization. He's a wonderful dog. His name is an Indonesian word which means "he who guards the house." It's an appropriate name, too. Two weeks after I got him, someone tried to break into my house. Jaga was waiting for him(them?) at the door and though the want to be burglars let my other two dogs go (I found them when I got home), Jaga wouldn't let them in the house. When I got here, the back door was wide open, and Jaga was in the house barking. Consequently, nothing was stolen. At night if he hears a noise outside, he stands over me in a protective posture and growls at the noise. He makes me feel loved and protected and I'm glad he found his way to my house in Texas.
