Hi guys! This is my first post here, and I need help finding a breeder. I don't plan on getting a Dobie (my first one) for another two years, but I'm trying to do all the research now. I realize a lot of people have to wait upwards of six months for the right pup, so I'm trying to take the initiative now I suppose. Learn all I can on the breed, get advise, get a good relationship with a breeder. I know this breed is definitely not for everyone and it's a serious dog that needs a serious owner who can handle it and really wants it. I do really want it, so I'm covering my bases now. I did find Rich-Lie on the DPCA site and saw people talking about them here. I emailed Carolyn a list of questions and she was actually quite rude to me and didn't answer any of the questions. Maybe I was being tedious or maybe she thought I was wasting her time, but I was very disappointed. Both of my current dogs (10 year old Maltese and 6 month Shiba Inu) have come from lovely, normal people that were hobby breeders. I just don't think that's the right route for this breed considering the health and temperament concerns. I've also heard of KettleCove, but I haven't reached out to them yet. So, long post short, know of any good breeders in Massachusetts or in New England? Maybe I am doing this too early.. just trying to be smart is all. Thanks in advance!
