Looking for NC/VA/MD/EASTERN SHORE Breeder
I originally posted this on another forum, and later realized it was a much less active forum, so I decided to join this on and reposted it over here.
As the title states, I'm trying to locate a reputable breeder in either NC, VA, MD, or on the Eastern Shore. I live in NE North Carolina and am willing to travel a reasonable distance, but do not want to ship a puppy.
I've been having trouble finding someone reputable with quality dogs that I feel trustworthy with. Either I find people I feel comfortable with, only to do more research and find out they are a BYB or have less than par health issues in their genetics. Other issues have been sellers either sending undesirable pedigrees or not wanting to send them electronically, which is an immediate turn off.
I have my reasons and dont feel a need to explain, but I am not interested in a rescue animal. I also dont want an older dog either. I'd like to find a doberman puppy from a reputable breeder who does not want an absurd amount of money (for example one breeder told me $4000). I'm sure their dogs are very nice and worth it, but I cant justify 4 grand. I wouldn't even spend 4 grand on a horse (and yes I know they are worth more than that sometimes).
The younger the better, ideally anything below 14 weeks would be fine with me. I am ok with having to wait a few weeks or couple months to get the dog, but I also am not looking to sit on a waiting list for a year or 2 either.
Any suggestions? Can anyone point me in a good direction? My number 1 reason for wanting a doberman is for a pet/companion with a secondary job of doing some mild farm work while outside with me. I plan on doing some professional training with the dog as well. Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing back.
