I need of a Recommended Breeder New York (NY)
Hey guys First time here, been researching this page but I thought I’d post for myself. Thanks in advance!
Let me start out by saying I’m a 24 year old male who’s very active And “fitness minded” been a huge dog lover for 24 years now haha. Specifically a huge Doberman lover.
I started looking now for years but haven’t pulled the trigger into taking one home. I grew up around medium-large dog breeds so that’s not an issue, I know what it takes to raise a dog and I’m ready.
With all that aside I’ve been looking at Lancaster Puppies, it where the average joe has some puppies and posts them. And right when I think I found the perfect one for me I noticed it is already 9 weeks old and ears are not cropped (as I would love my Doberman’s ears to be cropped). As I researched more about the cut off time I think I am cutting it close as I would like the medium show cut preferably. I don’t want to have a bad crop job so I decided I might have to pass on this great opportunity. (Yes I know the ears not being cropped shouldn’t decide if I bring the dog home or not but I’ve wanted this a long time and its what I truly want)
So if I do decide to pass this up I would need some dog breeders that come recommended by you all with experience with dobies. I’m in New York I can go to breeders that are anywhere with in a days drive going and coming. Please help me out on breeders and cropping ears would it be a risk if I were to bring home the 9 week old ( keep in mind he will be about 10 when I actually bring him home and if te appointment takes some time it can stretch to possibly 11 - 12 weeks. Thanks so much
