Beware monica blue / crestline dobermans

DO NOT purchase a doberman from Monica. I just recently purchased a puppy from her and she is EXTREMELY hard to deal with. Once you give her your money she will not respond to any of your emails and when she does it will be very short and limited communication. She is very rude over emails as well. Please do yourselves a favor and look elsewhere to buy a doberman, it really isn't worth it working with her.

Welcome to DT. Can you explain a little bit more about what happened? Do you have the puppy? I'm not excusing anything since you've really given few details, but not every breeder is great about communication.

This is very sad to hear--Monica Blue and her Cresline Dobermans has pretty much had a reputation for quality and excellence.

To be honest I didn't even know she was still breeding--she had not been doing much in the last few years.

Did she do all of the proper health testing on the parents? Did you puppy come from a nice pedigree? Did the puppy come to you well cared for, socialized, and well adapted? Was the puppy sick? Could something be going on in Monica's life that she might not be answering to all of your emails in a manner that you feel is timely? I don't feel like you've offered much information other than the breeder not responding to emails.

Our family has purchased 4 Dobermans from Monica Granger Blue (Crestline Dobermans) over the past 20+ years. We do not show or breed our dogs, they are members of our family. Our 4th dog was purchased April 2019. Monica is a responsible breeder who follows a serious protocol in vetting potential buyers. She is extremely knowledgeable about the breed and serious about health testing. We have always received quick replies from her via email or phone calls. She often times has checked-in with us over the years to see how our dogs are doing. I would highly recommend her to people who have done their due diligence learning about the breed and who meet the qualifications any professional breeder would require before placing their dogs in homes. Although she has endured some health problems this past year, her breeding program is active. I am disappointed that the dreamali7 did not have the same experience we have had with Monica.

It’s always upsetting to me that a thread title like this one could potentially smear a reputable breeder for all time. I hope the OP comes on with more details. And tries for more communication.


Always Playin’!
