Well-bred Natural Eared Pup Rehome

Hello everyone, hope this is alright! I don't normally do this but lately I feel I have seen a few more people asking about natural eared, well-bred dobermans which are harder to come by in the US (for good reasons) outside of working circles - and not everyone is looking for a working dog.

A local show breeder just north of Montreal, QC is looking to re-home a failed breeding/show prospect. Nothing wrong with her structurally or health wise, but she doesn't enjoy being in the show ring, so the breeder is looking to place her in a companion home or companion/performance home.

She is a 7.5 month old, black, natural eared bitch. Call name "Rosette". The breeder has said it is a little heartbreaking to rehome her because she is a real sweetheart and both she and her husband are in love with her. But she isn't going to breed her if she can't show her, and she feels she would be better off in a home or family that could give her more attention than she'd get staying with them.

She is house broken, knows basic obedience and is well socialized, good with other dogs (fellow dobes and Min Pins). She is a bit timid at first but warms up quick and likely will do best with someone who will dote on her.

For more info and details or to get in touch with the breeder you can PM me! She is bilingual so don't hesitate to line up some questions for her.

Picture posted today


And here at 5 months at a confo fun match where she got a group 2nd placement in spite of disliking the show ring.

Wow... If I lived near Montreal, I would check her out in a heartbeat. As my youngest pushes 5, I really want another Dobe. Having had male only homes, forever and being too old for the hoopla, it's going to have to be a bitch.

She seems like a "catch". Someone will get lucky...

I have a couple of questions. Not criticisms, just answers for my own education.

Is it common to leave a Dobe's dewclaws on in Canada?

Her tail seems to have 1 or 2 extra vertebrae more than you would see in AKC show line Dobes. Sort of like my sister's Weimaraners. Is that also common?

Again... The only reason I ask is for knowledge.

You are a bit far out west indeed lol!

To answer your questions :
- No it isn't common. Although I don't think this girl has her dewclaws at least based on the other pictures I've seen. Perhaps what you are seeing is the hind pad? We usually leave those even when removing the side dewclaw, at least in this province. I've admittedly not really noticed whether this is done elsewhere.

- The tail is indeed a bit long. There seems to have been a couple of longer docks recently around here. Since the Quebec veterinary order decided to forbid the practices of cropping and docking (it's not illegal to own a cropped or docked dog, it is however forbidden to a QC licensed vet to perform the procedure in Quebec) most breeders have gone to Ontario to get their puppies cropped.

I think those within close enough driving distance to the Ontario border have a vet come over and perform the docking procedure. You'd have to ask the breeder specifically if this girl was done by someone who maybe not have been as familiar with Dobes, because while it is far from common or typical, she is not the only girl I've seen recently from show-bred litters to have a longer dock.

It is also possible some are resorting to banding which could result in longer tails after decades of simply having a vet tech or vet come over with a scalpel. But this is my theory only and I've not actually seen or heard of anyone doing it.

Hope this helps with additional info

She is beautiful! Wow, John I am with you there. I think I could take her in a heartbeat.
I saw that with the tail, too.

She's pretty, but you can sort of sense she's not to happy being on display!

Rosette's got the same "clenched-up face" that our Eva gets when I try to walk her on a new route, where she'll turn to stone, OR when my daughter's female dog comes over to our house for another dog sitting stint....

When a Dobermans ears are not cropped, don't you still have to train them to lay down flat like that? Aren't they all over the place if you don't train them?

This depends entirely on the individual dog and their ears. Some dogs definitely need their ears trained. Others never need to and they fall ok.

We have a demo thread on how to train natural (uncropped) ears to lie down flat if you don't like how they are developing.
