MeadowCat Is the shelter supposed to randomly release a dog to "friends?" How in the world would that be acceptable? Anyone could say they were a friend. That is exactly how you create a situation where someone gets a dog they have no legal right to. Certainly a tragic situation, but, whoa.

From the article, it sounds like the breeder did exactly the right thing:

"Hallahan said the family's grief counselor told him no one was available to take the dog, so he planned to take care of Stanley until he could find him a new home. Hallahan said he had no problem giving the dog to the couple's family as long as he was provided a good home. "

greenkouki Animal control did absolutely nothing wrong. Unfortunately we live in a world where breeders are always viewed as evil because of puppy mills and the adopt don't shop mentality.

ECIN I'm more confused now - What did animal control do wrong ?? To me - they did 100% right - they called the breeder - that was the best place for him . Some people just have to much time on there hands I guess .

Dobe_Mom I will add that the breeder has done the right thing here. He was contacted by a county shelter, 2 states away, that they had one of his dogs. The owners were nowhere to be found due to tragic circumstances. What is the breeder supposed to do, other than go get the dog? Should he have left the dog at the shelter where it could have been picked up by whoever or maybe even put to sleep? 100% the breeder did right by the dog, based on what he knew at the time he got that call.

greenkouki That article is a one sided smear piece. Go read his side of the story! While I don't know Bob I know that he's an honest doberman breeder and handler.

ECIN To me --- Sort of a silly play on your heart story .

If the owners are unable to keep the dog, then the dog comes back to the breeder. = It is a signed contract = nothing more to be said !

Funny thing is - if they loved the Dober - They would not want it to live in a shelter , But would be in best care of the breeder .

The contract that is wrote and signed by the buyer and Breeder is there for only one thing - and that's for the best interest and protection of the dog and to give it the best out come possible - what ever that is . As far as if the kids get the dog back - then I think that they should qualify under the same conditions as the first owners - again what ever they were - like fenced in area , are they ever been Dober parents , Most know what I'm talking about here .

I personally don't know the breeder - but he is following total protocol as a breeder = they get the dog back if anything happens to the owners - all of ours have been that way and its a peace of mind to us if we were to both get wacked in a car crash that they will be well taken care of and the breeder will do his - her best to find them a great home .

Just my opinion

Dobe_Mom The breeder posted his side of the story - he was never contacted directly by the grown children. He was contacted by 2 extended family members saying the family would NOT be keeping the dog. The dog is in the breeder's possession and he is working with the grown children to return the dog to them.

The breeder has an excellent reputation within the doberman community and I do believe that the story that has been written in that article is inaccurate and biased.

It seems that he went back to his breeder just like he should have. Any decent reputable breeder has a clause in their contract that if anything happens that the original buyer can't keep the dog, that it comes back to the breeder. To me, the breeder is just keeping up his end of the bargain. It's sad that the kids want to see the dog, but they are not a listed owner.

I want you to do a search RMH Dobermans Ear Posting You will find a video with Bob Hallahan on You Tube showing you how to post your pup's ears. I post this way but I don't use the glue. Please try it, great video and I hope it helps.
Thank you, that video was awesome!

MC has a very good point - Until our Breeder went threw it we us step by step - hands on - did I finally get it - I then seen where I had had problems before - Kadin was so easy compared to all the other dogs . Good luck and don't get discouraged You will get it -

dobemama06 Yes, they have been super helpful! I believe that is the size I am using, but I will check when I get home. It always looks good at first and then after one night one or both has popped out.
11-18-2019 12:02 PM
greenkouki Yes it is possible to do the tape too tight. a 3 month old puppy I use 3/8" backer rod. The other rods are too big and will not sit deep enough in the ear in my experience. I recommend using zonas tape 1" wide. Have you seen the tutorial I made for posting ears and removing the posts? It's at the top of this forum with the other "stickies".
11-18-2019 11:50 AM
dobemama06 I will post pictures as soon as I get home.

I am back-taping them and I am stretching the ear and squeezing it on to the post. I started with backer rod that was too big and so I went back and got the "medium" at Lowe's. I'm not sure of the exact width, but I can get it.

I am very concerned with the tape being too tight so I have been being very loose with it and then squeezing it on. Is it possible I am being too cautious?

I also am going to try tapering the rods, maybe that is the problem? I am getting them down as far as I can. another issue may have been that I was using medical tape as opposed to athletic tape- could that make a difference?
11-18-2019 11:41 AM
greenkouki Please post photos. Common causes for posts popping out are not putting the tape low enough at the bottom of the post, using too big of backer rod, and not pushing the post down far enough then stretching and squeezing it on to the ear before taping. Are the posts being "back taped" so they are sticky?

Just can't get it right :(

I have a 3 month old little boy and I just can not get his posts right! The one time they stayed in was when the tape (in my opinion) was way too tight. How do I know when the tape is too tight or loose? The tops stay just fine but the bottoms pop out of his ears when he shakes his head. He also whines a lot when he hits them on something or scratches them; but that could be because he is generally very vocal in general.

I don't want the vet to continue to do them because A. It's expensive and B. I don't think they are doing it the correct way to prevent pockets

I can post pictures if needed- I'm using the backer rod method.

Thanks!
