I hate to be Debbie Downer here, but the Montreal area has some terrible puppy mills and some lousy Doberman breeders. There are some good ones in Quebec as well, but one really has to be careful. You've got one that is constantly breeding albino factored Dobermans there, and definitely needs to be avoided.
You play Debbie Downer, I'll take the role of Negative Nancy
OP, Hi, and welcome to DT.
Any list you have in mind should start, first and foremost with: Did I have all the information I needed, prior to choosing my breeder, to help me select a quality pet puppy that has a good chance of avoiding many of the health and temperament problems that often crop up in this breed?
And, in addition, and on that list as well, should be: Did I have all the information I needed in order to choose to be an ethical consumer and support with my purchase dollars a breeder who is doing things right, humanely, knowledgeably, and with the best interests of the individual animals in their care, and the breed as a whole?
There are sooooo many on here, who say they wish they'd found this forum first, and how they'd have done a lot differently, had they only known.
Hey, pick their brains, and benefit from their experience, no need to take the hard knocks yourself when somebody's already walked that mile, right?
Your 'Venus" puppy will still be out there--she just may not be the one pup you have in mind right at the moment, and that may be for the best.
