Hi new to Doberman talk-NC breeders?

Hi everyone
I am new to the forum. I am having a really hard time finding a good, reputable breeder in North Carolina. I even have looked in Virginia and seems that not a lot of breeders there who are not in it for money ☹️ or who aren’t just downright shady.
Any suggestions?
My husband and I had a red and tan dobe girl for 13 years and miss her very much. We didn’t do very good research before getting her though and she had a bunch of health problems so I definitely know what not to do this go around.

Thanks for any advice! 😊

I am in Harnett county. My family and I were looking to see if any litters would be born this fall sometime.
We also want natural ears -nothing against dobe with ears done at all- they are all beautiful ❤️- just our preference 😊

It's going to be nearly impossible to find an ethical breeder who will leave ears natural for you. Our breed standard is for cropped ears.

The only good breeder I know in that area who will leave an uncropped ear out there is Kathy Davieds of Jesaran Dobermans - she's in Virginia. She typically has a pretty long waiting list. You might contact her and see if there's anyone else she could recommend to you. Her contact information is on the DPCA breeder referral (go to www.dpca.org and click on the breeder referral).

I know pretty much all the "show" breeders here in NC and I can't think of one who would leave a puppy natural. If you would take a cropped puppy and are willing to be diligent with the ear posting process I could make some recommendations.

I've seen several people come to the forum and ask about getting a Doberman with natural ears. The response on this forum is that we have nothing against natural ears but no reputable breeder will let that happen. It should be up to the owner whether or not the ears are cropped. If you don't plan on showing your dobe this should not be a problem with the breeder or anyone else.

You have tried to have this discussion on this forum before, and I have warned you about this before. The crop/dock debate has been done to death.

I will refresh your memory: https://www.dobermantalk.com/ear-cro...-doberman.html

Again, we're simply stating that, in this country, the breed standard calls for a cropped ear, and a docked tail. Until that changes, it is difficult to find breeders who adhere to the standards we'd consider ethical in terms of breeding to the standard (in terms of the entire dog, which is important for function), doing appropriate health testing, breeding good temperaments, etc.

It CAN be done, but it requires being patient, waiting, seeking those breeders out....

This is NOT the place to have a crop/dock debate. More breeders may be willing to do it, but they are still few and far between.
