Well, I do see where youíre coming from, but let me post this update.
I donít use NuVet but at 2.5 years, my dobe girl who came from there is still as healthy as ever. Sheís friendly and stable, and dozens of buyers whose dogs came from here stay in touch often on Facebook. They all look happy and healthy! We did end up getting a second dog from here, and heís pretty great, too. Most of her dogs run free or are compartmentalized in a certain area of her property, and only kept in kennels when itís necessary for safety or health reasons.
That being said, I do understand your hesitation; weíre always told to beware of breeders with multiple breeds and multiple sires, and who mix breeds. Thatís fine. Iíd be hesitant too, if I hadnít taken the time to come down here. I donít judge you, but Emilyís puppiesí owners are so thrilled with their companions. Many are healthy protection dogs. My girlís littermate is a therapy dog for disabled kids at a junior high school. Our girl loves anything with a heartbeat and weíre considering using her to help veterans, seniors, or the homeless. Sheís not papered and Iím sure there are practices here that you donít support. Thatís totally fine and understandable! If thatís the case, go elsewhere. But, I support Emily, Von Riesig, and her family who keeps in constant touch with its adopters. Donít discredit this breeder because she doesnít hit each bullet point on the breedersí creed. $700 for a Doberman is a fair price, but for it we got the most amazing companion we could have asked for. Other breeds here go for up to $2k+, because she doesnít specialize in dobes. Purebreds elsewhere are exploited and sold for several thousand dollars. Emily seems to just cover costs and a fair profit. We are and will remain a friend and advocate.
