I am sorry for the loss of your dog. Thirteen years is a long time to make memories and their loss must be painful.

However, your time line for the purchase of a well bred dog is not super realistic. Breeders who title, health test, and pay attention to proper temperaments typically have substantial wait lists.

Furthermore, the AKC standard for a Doberman includes cropping and docking. The Canadian KC standard *does* allow for a natural ear, but not tail. The Doberman is a historically cropped and docked breed and many (most?) breed enthusiasts would like them to remain that way.

You may have better luck finding what you want from a working breeder. You will need to be ready for a significant commitment to training, exercising, and managing said dog and their drive.
