Lightbulb New member from Minnesota

Hi all!

I've been lurking for a number of months here but thought I'd finally join in. I live in southern Minnesota with my hubby, my 12 year old son, and one of my adult stepson. We are in the process of getting our first Doberman. Hubby and i have each owned many dogs over the years. Our most recent dog was a golden retriever, Wilson, who was best friends with our 12 year old. Wilson died fairly suddenly from cancer on last Halloween. Our son is on the autism spectrum and he was really devastated by this. He has been struggling a lot since then.

We waited for a while after Wilson passed before we started researching breeds. We wanted to find a new family member, not to replace our lost one. Once we started looking into different breeds, we fell in love with the Doberman. For many months now we've spent countless hours reading, researching, and learning about the breed, breeders, and anything else we could come across. We are finally in the home stretch and will be getting our little boy next month!

I went to thank everyone up front for being a great source of information. We can't wait to introduce you to our new pup soon.

Welcome to DT from Colorado! We'd love to hear stories and see pictures of your new baby when he comes home.

I have a boy like yours, I think. Having animals in our family has been a joy for us.

Yeah, Zumbrota isn't too far from us. My stepson used to wrestle over there occasionally as a kid.
