My first Doberman, purchased from Smith Dobermans in Reedley, CA was sired by Rootin Tootin Crimson Cowboy. We lost our boy to bone cancer two months ago at the age of 6. He was Z factored as his mother was a white (we didn't know any better and I fell in love with Jack immmediately). After research on why we should NOT breed whites, I knew we wanted another boy sired by this male as our boy seemed to pick up the best of this stud. I specifically asked about future breeding with a non Z factored female as their website states they offer non z. I contacted Smith Dobermans to find out if they were still breeding Cowboy and was informed they were breeding him to Z factored females as their goal was to produce whites. I was very disappointed, but am not willing to further this breeding of whites and destroy the level of purity of these beautiful dogs. I do love the look of this particular stud and I really wanted a relation with my boy. I found one pup from Cowboy's second litter, KHAN in PA (Heathers House of Dobes). Did anyone else purchase a puppy or knows of anyone who has Cowboy in their pedigree? I don't beleive Smith Dobermans will be of any help as they referred me to the DPCA.
