Introduction - Wannabe dobie owner
Hi, I'm Timmo, from Los Angeles.
My best friend as a teenager was a wonderful red dobie name Damien. I've always loved the breed. However, I went down the rottweiler route, and have been owned by two Rottie boys. Blitz lived to be almost 14, but the second, Otto, died about a year ago at 7 of lymphoma. I've been searching for a rottie pup but to little or no avail, and I thought I should expand my horizons and look for a doberman. There seem to be fewer rottweiler breeders than there were when I got Otto in 2011, and Otto's breeder is out of action for a bit.
I realize that dobermans and rottweilers are related beasties (literally), but definitely have their differences, but I've known several over the years and have always found them to be steady, loyal, and probably smart enough to beat me at cards. So part of the reason why I'm here is to learn as much as I can about the breed from people that really love them. Also I'm trying to search breeders within driving distance, so Southern California, Vegas, Bay Area, Sacramento and Arizona. I realize that it's tough to make suggestions, but any feedback would be deeply appreciated.
This seems to be a nice place, I think I'll stay a bit and learn about dobermans!
