Resipa, a well bred Doberman from a reputable breeder at the cost of $2500 - 3,000 really is a good price. You should expect a puppy at that cost from this breeder, cropped ears, docked, dew claws and
all testing done on both dam and sire. Ask to see the papers. Heart testing that includes Echo and Holter results. Thyroid testing on both. OFA hips and elbows on both. Yearly CERF (eyes). And
both or at minimum one Champion. I look for titles on both dam and sire and prefer a title at both ends - conformation (Champion) and working and even better a ROM title. Sometime there are
circumstances that prevent one of finishing a title, but one at least should have been shown in conformation. When you total all that up - saving you the cost of health problems or finding your own
cropper - it really is a savings and a deal. Someone recently posted finding a good cropper for her new puppy which she purchased uncropped and I believe the cheapest price she found was $795. ?
A lot of good advise on this forum from people that want to help you and point you in the right direction. Good luck.
