Hi all I am new to the site. I currently have 5 month old female Rhodesian Ridgeback. I am looking at possibly getting a Doberman. I have always found Dobermans an attractive breed both personality and looks wise. However, I do have many questions before deciding whether a Doberman is right for my household

Thanks and all the best, Dirk.

You have questions - we have answers! Welcome to DT, your non-stop shop for all things dobe. I love Rhodesian Ridgebacks, you must post a picture of your girl!

Not sure when your timeframe is for adding another dog to your family, but most would probably recommend waiting until your girl is older before bringing a pup in. That, and same-sex aggression is prevalent among dobermans so you should opt for a male when the time comes.

Were you thinking of adopting a rescue or purchasing from a breeder?
