Hi dobiedude. And welcome from the Pacific NW.
There is certainly no disagreeing with Artemis here. I would not hesitate looking at Heartwood for a Dobe puppy.
They have been sometimes been closely involved with the breeder of our last 3 boys. Our current 2 dogs share significant blood lines with several of Heartwood's dogs.
Depending on what you are looking for, there are many good and reputable breeders in the Pacific NW. Many are easily accessible from San Francisco. You can search the forum section here for recommended Northwest breeders. Stick around and others may chime in.
Oh... BTW. The breeder of our last 3 dogs is Foxfire. They, like Heartwood are located in Southern Oregon. A very easy drive from the Bay Area. They have both a website (Foxfire Dobermans) and are on Facebook.
Have fun in your search.
