oh goodness those chest markings, oh goodness! Good luck everyone, no reputable breeder would breed dobes with those markings and thats the first thing I'll say.
After initially being told by numerous people on this forum that my dog, Zora, was "not a doberman" despite having the epitome of the Doberman stance/shape/build etc. (27.5" @ whithers & 73.5 lbs no fat female) because of her markings I did some research. The MSPCA I adopted her from had lost some of her original paperwork when she came in, and I think that was by design because her front left leg was busted. Anyhow they did give me a DNA test that showed Doberman breed, as she grew into her body and lightened up some in color around the face and chest, I was curious if she had something else in her - so I went to a Vet and had another DNA test done, same thing - Doberman. Fast forward she is now 2 years 7 months old fully grown and looks/acts Doberman aside from the light markings on chest/and the tan creeps up further on he legs.
My wife was looking through some photos of dobermans on the internet and came by the tory reid site, some of their pics look nearly identical to Zora, so she called them and inquired about them. She said she bred red and black/tans together and mixed euro/american dobies together and the result was some were "miss-marked" and that was less desireable but that the dogs were fine.
Zora has no health problems thus far (knock on wood), but in regards to her having bad markings, I think as much fault goes to the bad breeders as it does to the breed snobs who would look at a dog that is an anomaly and say "that's not a doberman" despite the fact that genetically it is, and regardless of breed is a wonderful dog. The people who will only buy dogs from breeders or "reputable" breeders basically perpetuate the problems as well.
ANyhow, I hope after reading this about tory-reid that she doesn't have any health problems, but like I said she seems fine. And the SPCA did confirm that is where she originated, and the reason the information wasn't initially disclosed was they were worried that whomever adopted zora would have ill-will to the people who dropped her off at the SPCA w/ a busted leg, so they wanted to remain anonymous.
