Howdy from Texas!

Hello everyone! Unfortunately, I lost my sweet Bella just after Hurricane Harvey hit due to genetic issues. I humbly admit I bought her from a byb (I know, I know), but she was the best dog I have ever had the pleasure to share my life with. Hard lesson learned. I do plan on getting another, but from a reputable breeder this time. So, any info about breeders around the Houston area, especially who to stay away from) is greatly appreciated!

Welcome to DT, and hi from a fellow Beaumonter.

There are several good breeders here in Texas. Sirai is in Houston, but I don't know when or if she's planning on having her next litter. There are also Aura, Horizon, Sunburg, and Treu/Touchstone.

There are more breeders on the DPCA breeders list, but you do need to do your homework, because there are some that I wouldn't touch with a 10' pole. DPCA | The Doberman | Breeder Referral

There are also sadly, a boatload of people to stay away from. You can always look up opinions on a breeder by searching for threads on them here. You can also ask about hem if you don't find any info.

I would suggest going to some shows to chat with the local breeders and meet some dogs to see what might fit your lifestyle best. I believe there's a show in Austin this weekend that my breeder (Sirai) will be at with several of her dogs. I believe Dobermans show at 9:00 and 10:20.

I think there is also a show in Midland the next weekend. Since I'm no where near Texas that's the best I can do, but you can look up shows near you at Onofrio's website. Meeting a lot of dogs in person is SO helpful, and chatting with the people showing (breeders, owners, etc) can really help you figure out who might be a good fit for you as a breeder.

Best of luck!

Midland is a bit of a haul, but the Baytown Kennel Club will be holding two shows in Crosby the first weekend of March. And there is a HUGE cluster of shows held at RNG (Reliant, whatever you want to call it these days) in July, with several specialties and all breed shows.
