The breeder you mentioned (South Paw) I have a few questions on:
1. I don't see mention of echo and holter, which is imperative to a breed who's number 1 killer is DCM
2. Thyroid, Kidney, Liver doesn't test as clear. They test as normal and need to be retested every year as things can change.
3. Perhaps I set my standards high, I like Euros, I like American, but those dogs just look backyard bred. I really didn't think any of them met the standard of looks that I like to see in a dog. Euros don't tend to have a body type I like but I like their heads, Americans tend to be flashier but those dogs aren't not the dogs that say "Look at me aren't I the regal, noble steed you always wanted in your home!?!" They kind of look sad to me, just my humble opinion.
^^^^ This, plus I will add that for the price they are charging you can get a well bred doberman that meets the high standards described above.
