Elka is from Bear Creek.


There. I finally said it.

You might reasonably guess that I'm choosing somebody else next go-round. I'm very happy with Elka (appearance and temperament, though her size concerns me a bit), less so with other things I've heard about the breeder since.

Mysti was from Eisamar, even though her registered name was Springston's, he got her on a breeding contract, he had the stud, Eisamar's Daredevil. He got some of the puppies out of the breeding, I only saw her and her sister, Im not sure how many he had and I dont know if this is common practice among breeders. I do know that he had several dogs, and many in Daredevil's pedigree. both dogs had good lines, health testing and all that.

Nexus is from a breeder in Missouri that I am feeling is less than ethical, KB Kennels, I thought at first they were a good kennel, health certified dogs, a good guarantee, but I have since seen several litters being advertised and have noticed he uses the same photos of the puppies for his littler ads.

Bella came from Great Lakes Dobermans here in Detroit, she breeds both AKC and CKC (Continental Kennel Club) litters, and has european lines, though I didnt get a pedigree on Bella, I kind of wish I had just because I am curious about her lineage.

All of my dogs were gotten with limited registrations, I would not buy one on a full registration as I have no experience with conformation showing (have always wanted to try but I understand it requires you to breed, and the ONLY way I would do that is if the breeder took the female back to breed her and raised the puppies).

Just wanted to add...

Tali is from Ali, Old Drum, too. She was an adult rehome and I couldn't be happier with both my girls.

Would recommend both breeders in a heartbeat.

I got mine from a byb for $300. I got pick of the litter too. It was his first time breeding his two dobies. I got her right out of high school so I didnt have the money or knowledge to get one with better bloodlines.

I have a Trans Am, a gun, and a Doberman. What more could a girl ask for?

Rosebud came from the pound.

Bonnyrose came from a Breeder who showed her but I think she was a borderline BYB
Rubirose is coming from DeeRun in Washington State, got her name off the DT list.

I voted "the pound/humane society" and "other"

Malia was a "plain jane" adoption from the animal control shelter. The typical cost covers vacinations/alterations.

Magnum was other... Magnum's Story

Hi everyone!! I am currently in search of a new Doberman puppy. I've considered rescues, but I already have a chiwawa and a cat, so I thought a pup would be easier. I know I could probably find a rescue who would get along, but i want to make sure my Doberman has been socialized PROPERLY. Does anyone have any advice on a breeder/kennel? I want to enter my Dobie into shutzhund Any help would really be appreciated!!!

Found Rowan on Kijiji, fell in love with the pics of him and his sister (blk) had seen the ad before but wasn't willing to pay what they were asking. They dropped the price for the male and since he was already neutered and cropped I just think of the money paying for them. They gave me a story that has basically fallen apart but I don't regret it. If I end up with another one it'll be a real rescue or from a breeder.

I found Odin on a Kijiji, needed to be rehomed for the usual BS reasons "don't have time for him", "child developed allergies". You know, the usual. I paid $400 for him, they wanted $800. I told them I would not pay that, and that I would be getting him fixed almost immediately after bringing him home, so I wanted the price dropped so I could afford fixing, getting up to date shots and chipping. They accepted, we brought him home.

I am so glad they accepted, he was in such bad shape. They had only been feeding him little packs of dog treats that they had coupons for, he had never been on a leash or played with another dog, he was nervous of men and would wince anytime you raised a hand or arm near him. He also has a very small, perfectly round scar on his back, where no hair grows (you can actually see it in my signature pic perfectly). The vets told us that it was a scar from a cigarette. He was being abused there. We have had him about 1 1/2years now, and has gotten over so many of his issues. He is such a blessing to my wife and I!

Re: Where did you get your Dobe?

I was gifted my sweet Beretta from a breeder who's boys I wents to school with. She was the pick of the litter and her buyer backed out last min.
I initially just came over to say hello and have dinner, but when I got there the breeder had the paperwork and pedigree ready for me. I will always be grateful and love my 12 wk old baby girl.

Every dobe my mom had when I was growing up were rescues. My first dobe as an adult was a rescue/pup from byb.
My next dobe will be a pup and from a carefully chosen breeder (in the oven right now but I will likely rescue again down the rd. My current dog isn't a dobe but is a rescue.
