Thank you Dictator for your input! I really had strong feelings that all of her problems might be linked to her mother. To me the whole ordeal with her mother could have been avoided had the breeder more thoroughly screened that female. I know that female in particular had, had previous litters and I always wondered if she had pushed away her other litters too, but I do not recall the breeder ever saying anything about that. I did see though on the breeders private group that, that female had been spayed so no more puppies will be coming from her thank goodness! The whole experience did scare me away from dobermans. I in no way think that they are bad dogs, but they are much more demading of your time as we found out for ourselves. I might own another doberman one day, but it would be much later on down the road when I have all the time in the world to devote to it. Once my children are grown and gone I would not mind at all adopting one from a rescue, I personally would have rather done that from the beginning, but being that we have young children and other pets we wanted a pup to grow up with all of our family, so we didn't have any problems. My family and I have learned so much from all of the mistakes we have made and my hope is that this breeder will tone down her breeding and that I can educate people through my experience. I don't want anyone to have to go through what my family and I did. I was so heartbroken when we decided to give her back because I wanted nothing more than for her to be a part of our family, but I really felt like it was a ticking time bomb with the way she was trying to really attack our cats, I did not want that to happen to one of my young children. I know the pup has been placed in a new home and I really hope that she is doing well.
I figured out how to post in the other thread so I will be doing that at some point today, thanks for the help!
