Question Where did you get your Dobe?

Not sure if this has been done before, but i'm curious enough to want to try to have a survey If you have more than one, you can pick more than one choice!

Through a co-worker who had taken in an already bred female Dobe. She ended up with 10 pups! Ouch.... I would have died. The stud was registered and the pups were also registered.

It's actually a multiple choice poll

But you are right, there's no option for "own breeding"! Gee, i have to get better at poll design!

Mine was "other" since Gunner was from a BYB and I really can't classify her as a breeder and give her the distinction that others have earned through hard work and dedication.

I don't know the whole story. Jax's mother was less than 2 when she had his litter, her 2nd litter. The people my co-worker got her from had her out with their male Dobe during her heat cycle and were unsure if she was bred or not. There was something about being in the military maybe anyway they were looking for a home for the female. So my co-worker took her in not knowing if she was bred or not. Turns out she was, with 10. The people were willing to sign the paperwork to register the litter. That is all I know. His mother was spayed shortly after the pups all left for their new homes.

Zeus came from epupz in the uk. from what i thought at the time was a breeder but is probably a BYB as no testing and she owned both parents. he is so gorgeous though.

missy was from an advert on epupz from a couple who wabted to sell her cos they could not cope ?? she is such a love and so well behaved i dont know what the problem was.. they wanted to make money from her every season but could not continue with breading as the bloke had a heart condition..

so im very proud to say i saved her from a liftime of shelling out puppys to live with me my family and zeus and be happy and carefree !!!

To my knowledge, Liz isn't a member of the forum yet. I might just have to make the suggestion!
