I will tell the new owners about this site on Friday when I transport her down to AL. I'm sure they wouldn't mind keeping everyone posted on how she is doing. And of course I don't hold this one incident against duchess or the breed in general. This is actually my third Doberman. My first experience with a Doberman was when I was 18 and my boyfriend at the time had the best and sweetest Doberman ever. He turned into an alcoholic about a year after we started seeing each other and sadly started beating my Roxie girl. We broke it off, and local law enforcement was unwilling to help me get her out of a bad situation, especially since she was never technically mine. So I formulated a game plan, talked with a local rescue who was willing to help me even if I did do some sketchy stuff, and I decided to steal her right out of his yard one day. I knew I couldn't keep her because I would get caught, but I don't regret what I did. She lived on a 40acre farm the rest of her days. She went across the rainbow bridge in 2010 at age 8. She had cancer that came on very quickly, but she went peacefully. My second Doberman experience was when I was about to move away from home so I purchased a red/tan Doberman to protect my widowed mothers house since she would be all alone. I trained him with my mother, and he is still living the high life at moms house. I think Duchess reminded me so much of Roxie that I couldn't help but fall in love with her. I will be adding a Doberman to my family when my son is a little older, maybe 5 or so. That way he can get involved in the raising of a young pup, who can grow up with him. All of you guys are great, and I can't thank you enough for the support! I'm going to post some pictures of duchess, and maybe later this week post some pictures of my moms boy. He is nicknamed Russ, but his registered name is Lazarus' awakening, because the first night I brought him home I discovered he barked loud enough to wake the dead!
