Looking for a great breeder near Upstate SC

Hello all,

I'm looking for a doberman breeder to get a puppy for my family and I. I've always had dobermans growing up; I am now on my own and I have a 2 year old son and am ready to purchase one so he can do the same! Unfortunately our most recent breeder is no longer breeding dobermans. I'm looking for a good breeder within about 2 hours or so would be great. I'm near spartanburg SC.

Obviously ideal temperament and would prefer a breeder where the primary task is not to breed and sale.

Also if some people would like to recommend great places for someone to do the ears, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to DT.

Have you checked out the DPCA breeder referral yet? DPCA | The Doberman | Breeder Referral Just be aware that not every breeder on it is as ethical as they could be, and that a lot of good breeders aren't on it. No matter if the breeder is on the DPCA list or not, make sure you see hard copies of all the health testing done on the parents, and can verify any titles they are supposed to have.

Since you have a toddler, maybe an older pup that the breeder was holding onto or a dog that had to be returned to the breeder might be a good option. Also, have you thought about adopting an adult through a reputable rescue?

A good breeder will have had the ears done at the appropriate age, so you wouldn't need to worry about finding a vet to do the crop for you. One sign of an iffy breeder is that they send the pups to their new homes uncropped. There are exceptions, but for the most part, breeders who don't have the pups cropped themselves (at no additional cost to the puppy buyer) are breeders who also don't title and/or health test their breeding dogs.
