Hello everyone!

Hi,

I'm in the process of adopting a new doberman puppy in 10 weeks when they are able to leave their mom. So I thought I'd get jump start and start learning more about the breed while I wait!

Welcome to DT.

Adopting means you are rescuing a puppy, is this the case? Or are you buying a puppy?

Welcome to DT!

I second the above post. Are you truly rescuing or are you purchasing?

What breeder are you going through?

I'm adopting from a lady here in Albuquerque,nm that rescued a pregnant doberman, who will be having puppies very shortly. She has seen pics of the father, but hasnt seen him in person.

She's here and can soak up a lot of info before puppy comes home. In a perfect world, yes, everyone would do research before they get a purebred, especially one they have not owned before, but in the real world it doesn't work that way...be glad she found us and help her, don't put her down.

My cousin has owned Doberman's and also a good friend has owned them, so I know a little bout their character, but they have only had that dog and no other dogs where living with them, so I don't know much about multiple dogs in the same house. That's why i signed up here to learn more about the breed before I adopt one!

Do you have other dogs? You should be aware that there is a problem with same sex aggression in the breed, males especially.

Please, soak up as much info on the breed as possible. The DPCA website is very helpful and will also help you understand and research the breed.

Good luck and please post pics!!!

Hey, I got a GSD before I had done much more than basic research on the breed. They (along with several others) were on my radar as a "some day" breed, just like the Doberman was. I decided I wanted a Dobe more than a GSD, and joined here to learn as much as I could. I wound up rescuing a GSD puppy this past year, instead of looking into adopting a Dobe next year.
