"We" would be great if it were everyone who thought like you! I completly agree!
The first post was quick to point out, all black is a fault and not standerd, which I am sure the owner is aware. Followed up by someone mentioning, challenge the fact of being a purebred and I "think" I saw the word mutant on the first page.
Again I would point out that the pup came from a normal colored mother and father and two all black ones showed up. I don't know, is this supporting a bad breeder because they were purchased, or should the breeder have killed them when they were born or should the new proud member who was kind enough to post his photos... not have bought him???
I'm positive the OP wasn't asking for advise or supporting the reproduction of all black Doberman puppies. He was just posting his pup and the cute-ness of his blackness for us all to enjoy. Yes advise is great and that's what "we" are all here for and love about this site.
Having said that, why would any new member fear posting a photo if "we" were all the kind people your speaking of?
"We" are not all the same but, I must be the only one to notice.
I'm afraid the OP is supporting that by purposely purchasing a Doberman with a major fault. There's a major difference between rescue/adoption of one versus lining the pockets of someone who knows that people will think solid black Dobermans are super cool and rare and want to purchase them. I guarantee you that the OP will be asked an endless amount of times throughout her Doberman's life "wow that black doberman is so cool, where did you get it???, i want one!"
I seriously hope the breeder sold these puppies with spay/neuter contracts. I highly doubt that happened though. I've personally never heard of an ethical breeder producing solid black Dobermans. Most try to stay away from blues and fawns as it is. I was just hoping for the OP's sake that they did their research and purchased a puppy from a breeder who cares about the new owner and their new puppy by genetically health testing their breeding stock. Unfortunately that was not the case here.
I really agree with this information from Rhapsody Doberman's website:
"Some people feel that it doesn’t matter which breeder they deal with because all they want is a nice pet. Some people feel that it doesn’t matter if the parents of the dogs have any conformation, obedience, working or temperament titles but it DOES matter.
A breeder who doesn't health test, temperament test and title their dogs is basically saying that a buyer does NOT deserve any of this. And it's extremely insulting that a breeder would try to satisfy a person with something that requires less knowledge, less effort, less commitment, and less cost per unit. Don't settle for that!
Never settle for less because of time, money or other considerations. Your pup may be a part of your family for ten to fifteen years and compromises now will affect you and your puppy for a long time to come.
If you are not able to find what you want immediately, a few weeks or months of patience will generally be rewarding. In fact, getting a pup from some of the better litters usually requires a wait - as many are sold in advance.
So educate yourself, look around and see what is available by attending local shows. Talk with various breeders about required and expected standards and be wary of faults that are bred into the breed by the "backyard" breeders.
