Hello fellow Doberman lovers
I'm just a hair past my 6th decade. I had dobermans, but not under the best of circumstances, when I was in my teens. In 1995 I was graced with a Doberman puppy, a fawn female. Alas, 'Isabel' did suffer from Color Mutant Alopecia. She lived to be 12, when she was about 11 1/2 she developed a heart problem. Anyway, of the 3 dobermans I had when I was younger, 2 were black, one of which had a skin problem, and 1 was fawn, and he had a beautiful coat, which was why in 95 I wanted another fawn.
I live on some acreage, and have a tendency to keep any strays I find. I've had several dogs, both mutts and purebreds, But only those 4 Dobies. Dobies are my FAVORITE breed, and one day I plan on getting another. At one time I had 8 dogs, all at the same time! Years ago when I heard that someone had a pack of dogs that size, I thought they were nuts. I am now down to 3 dogs, and when the oldest goes, that's when I'll be getting my Doberman. May be 3 years, may be 5, but since I've been out of touch with Dobies, it'll give me lots of time to research breeders, and, if I want a European or American dog.
Hope all is well with everyone, I'm looking forward to getting these brain cells sharpened up.
