Newb

Hello, I'm (obviously) a newbie and was directed here by PatchworkRobot. I don't own a Dobe, but have hopes of getting one within the next few years. I don't have a lot of experience with the breed, but I worked at a dog daycare for several months where we had a few Dobie clients so I did get to interact with them several days a week. I was interested in the breed before that job, but that experience definitely cemented it for me, I gotta have one of these dogs in my life!

I currently own two dogs.. Corona, a 5y/o female CKC Chihuahua, and George, a 10y/o Boston Terrier-Corgi rescue.

I live in BC, Canada and am currently in college part time, graduating in May and then hopefully moving back to Calgary or Toronto... wherever the work is!

Guess that's me in a nutshell. Hope to learn more about these cool dogs and get to know some of their great owners.

Welcome! If PR has spoken with you then you have been steered in the right direction! Are you wanting more of just a pet or interested in competing with a Dobe in some venue?

Are my mutts welcome here!?

This is.. well, I'm sure you can guess..


And the George


And the pair (this is a rare pic, as George is actually afraid of Corona)




ZR - I definitely want to be active with my pup! I hope to get a show puppy, and also do a sport, probably agility.

Um....so if George ever needs a new home, or an extended vacation, you just shoot me a PM and I'll scoop him right up. Deal?

Holy smokes, what a warm welcome, thank you!

George is my "problem child", so there are many days when I would quite gladly pack him up and ship him off to a new home! lol

Hi and welcome from Calgary. I have 3 Chi's but am currently Doberless.

Are you going to OUC? I went to OUC in Kelowna ten years ago.

I am going to OUC! Making the 50 minute drive to the Vernon campus 3 times a week, which is crummy this time of year. Can't wait to be done and making a real wage for once.. I'm working p/t at a clothing store right now for $10/hr and it's BRUTAL, lol.

Hence the reason for waiting to get myself a Dobe.. I'd LOVE to have one now, but the responsible thing to do is wait.. stupid being responsible..

Cool. I lived in Vernon and made the drive to Kelowna every day for 2 years. I miss the Okanagan but had to move to Calgary or Vancouver to work.
