Smile Hiya all... newbie alert!

Hi I am Jessica (Jess you may say hehe) and I have grown up with GSDs, have one and one Whippet.
I have had a massive respect for Dobermann and never thought I would be able to have one, yes it has been a bit of this and that of information came in wrong in my head so therefore I thought it was a breed only for the Shutzhund.
But to my own reading and searching I have found out that Dobermann is so much more, which is making me happy.

I am hoping that I will learn a lot from you all, I am Swedish and have been in the UK for almost 10 years.
I am like a sponge and will take in most of you all say.
I have read upon the dobbie a bit so I am not completely a virgin.
Having that said though, I have never owned one before, but have happy met a few and loved all loved them.

Thank you for letting me register and saying hello.

Jess

Welcome Jessica! Are you planning to get a Dobe?

I grew up with GSDs as well and we've got a three year old female who tries to keep our Dobergirl in line, but the pecking order has changed in our house!

Hi Monica, yes eventually I am... if all goes well that is.
My neighbour is getting one this week coming... and I am the green monster I have to say, a gentle boy in his 19 months and such a big bear that just loves to play, no matter what kind or type of creatures he is playing with...

I am looking in that case for a girl, I have more experience with Girls and have found that boys (in most breeds) are the cocky type and it does not really click with me, you know.. like men (JOKE).

I have GSDs for more or less 15 years, grew up with them but my intrests in "breed" has gone over to Dobermans more and more for the last 6 months and I have been reading more about them and now here to try and learn more in a privet way about them.
We all can read and such but personal experience sometimes are more worth then just reading....

Well thank you for welcome me

Click here to find out how lolonurse became a supporter
Hi Jess - Welcome from San Diego, California, USA. I grew up with GSD's, Boxers and Dobermans - all of which I dearly love. We had only GSD's for 20 years, and then, in 2002, got 2 Dobermans, when our last girl, Jazz, was about 12 years old. She was a very good nanny for our 2 youngsters, and they were very respectful of her. She dies when she was the ripe old age of 13 1/2 years.
We now have 3 Dobermans, and they are so intelligent, loving, funny and sensitive. We lost one in April, and are looking into getting a new puppy.
You will love having a Dobe! Welcome, and have a look at our photos. Lois

Hi Jess, welcome to the forum- i'm new here myself!

I got my first dobie 2 years ago and i am officially a fully fledged supporter of the breed now!

You said you lived in the UK for 10 years - are you still in the UK now? I live in Leeds with Bruce (the dobermann) and Shadow my Labrador x dalmation.

Nice to meet you!
