Trying to find Chuck & Boomer
 
I hope someone can help. In 2009 I attended Spruce Meadows in Calgary. While I was there I met a man named Chuck and his stunning Doberman, Boomer, who was a European import. An absolute standout quality dog and very well trained. I would very much like to contact Chuck. The dog world and the showjumping world are big but small at the same time. And a dog of Boomers quality stands out. I am hoping that this rings a bell with someone and they have a way I can connect. Really appreciate your help!! 🙏🏻

Hi and welcome to DT! Was this a dog show or horse event or something else? What stood out to you that you liked about this dog? Unfortunately it is likely that the dog is not still alive if he was an adult when you saw him 10 years ago. This is an unhealthy breed and why it's important to be sure you select a reputable breeder who does extensive health testing prior the breeding. If you've never been to a dog show I would recommend going. That is where you will really see dogs of superior quality.

Hi, I saw Boomer at Spruce Meadows showjumping competition. His owner Chuck’s daughter was competing. Unfortunately I don’t know her name to be able to locate them. For sure that Boomer would be gone by now. My partner and I are international bloodstock agents, assessing horses in type, conformation and pedigree inspecting over 16,000 horses per year. So it would be fair to say that we have an eye for a correct, balanced and athletic animal with that something special. Boomer was a standout, which is why I am trying to track his owner down, as he may have progeny and no doubt he will have valuable input to sourcing a quality dog either domestically or abroad. Appreciate any help you can offer!

This is the only dog I could find on a quick search of Dobequest that *might* be the dog you saw, and if so, has nice things about him.

I'm sorry to call BS if it's not this dog. Anytime I hear "Euro" red flags immediately go up in my head. Most people refer to Eastern European show lines as "Euro" and by out standards these dogs generally are not good examples of the breed. They may have impressive bone, but certainly are not 'poured into [their] skin' as we look for in our breed.

A good indicator of whether a dog you see in public is quality is if the owner brags on the dog and his accomplishments when you get into a conversation. People who show or compete to a high level in a particular sport with their dog are very proud of their dog and the time and effort they put into getting where they got to with their dog. They will be sure to tell you all about it! When it's just a "pet" the owner is more likely to say something along the lines of "he's European and 120 pounds" or "His parent's were imported directly from _____". Just sayin' :wink2:

Good luck with your search. BTW if you like that dog I posted you may want to contact the breeder [doberiech]. She incorporates Euro show lines into her breeding program and is successful with it. Be sure to ask any breeder about health testing results when you get to talking. It's extremely important to have up to date Holter/Echocardiogram on the sire and dam before they are bred, and in subsequent years. Our breed has a lot of health problems, unfortunately.

I really don't think it would be that dog. He lived in Ontario with his owner, afaik. No involvement with horses to my limited knowledge.

Wishful thinking on my part, perhaps. Hopefully we hear from Catheryne again.
