Don't know where he got the puppy but the good breeders I know don't sell puppies as "gifts" for someone else.
That was my first thought. My second thought was “oh no, that poor dog will wind up in rescue or worse”. And another thing, if he wanted a dog for protection shouldn’t he have purchased a dog from a protection dog service that is already trained?Don't know where he got the puppy but the good breeders I know don't sell puppies as "gifts" for someone else.
Those gifts tend to not end up as prized permanent possessions.
My thoughts exactly- how's that puppy going to be doing any protecting as a puppy?That was my first thought. My second thought was “oh no, that poor dog will wind up in rescue or worse”.

You know un cropped dobies look different when they are classified as a hound in a breed book 😆 Seriously they r I can’t remember the book thoThe uncropped ears might be good for dobes in general--because maybe folks won't realize he's a dobe when he turns out to be a mess.
This is a good point and makes me feel a bit better. Hopefully, this pup came from somewhere similar.I mean given Ms Spears' wealth I am sure the dog will be professionally trained as with most celebrity dogs. One of the Jenner girls has a doberman from Ringsport Dobermans in California - the breeder is also a french ring decoy, trainer and competitor and sells his pups with a guarantee of a year of training and level up to a brevet (and not in a board and train context though he takes B&T clients too).
I find it amazing that this is pretty much the only place I see cropped dobies online anymore. In person all dobies I’ve seen are cropped, but Reddit and all that it’s mostly flop. I really hope they never make it illegal to crop like they did in the UK 🙁 bc in my opinion they should make spay and neuter illegal too then, since it’s just as invasive and “traumatizing” 🙄. About the same recovery time and both use anesthesia. How are they that different? If they breed dogs that can’t breathe for looks, how is ear cropping anywhere near as cruel.I didn't see any alternative comments from the AKC, UKC or DPCA in that article, just anti-cropping and docking viewpoints?
Unfortunately, most media outlets don't practice journalism anymore, just push their preferred agendas...
Most of THAT has been due to her father forcing her to perform and Do Things."From the link on TMZ...The white dress would be good for the start of the day walks and the salmon dress would work for late afternoon games of fetch and would be perfect for a few rounds of tug of war in the yard.... "
I think all this puppy will be doing with her is twirling in front of a camera. I am so sick of seeing that twit twirling in front of a camera.
