I poked around to see if I could find anything about Doberland--even in DobeQuest (pedigree data base belonging to and maintained by the DPCA) there were only three or four entries under Doberland--doesn't even seem to be an entire pedigree for any of them. Is the dogs you purchased from the 2015 litter?Hello everyone I purchased a Int. Champion from Margo Richards at Doberland Dobermans . I have issues and she will not work with me to resolve them . Does anyone know this kennel ??
I purchased Int. Doberland Powerhouse aka Balor. Let me start by saying he’s a good looking male dog and she advertised him well on her website . I talked for a few weeks back and forth via text messages and phone conversations with Margo Richards from Doberland. She advertised he was Dna cleared of Dcm and ofa certified good, also stated he’s housebroken and loves tides in car etc. and I asked about his boys she said anything that she would look and take care of anything he needed before pick up . After all our conversations I drove 9 hrs one way to purchase him . She did not let us come to her house she meet us at a tractor supply store in Balvior, Mo which I thought was a little odd but with covid 19 going around I understood. It was very windy and cool day . She had just given Balor a bath and he was still wet standing in the cold so everything was kinda rush rush. She said she was getting out of breeding due to her health. Margo showed me some paperwork but the wind was blowing all around . I signed and contract that we would give him a good home and gave a health guarantee that did he had 2 yrs remaining . He was a little nervous but understandable because he was wet and cool outside. We got in our vehicle and proceeded to go home . After about 10 minutes out we stopped at a gas station And we looked over his paperwork more carefully he is dcm1 positive and his rabid shot record was 2 yrs past due! Booster shots 1 yr past due! No heartworm test either! To throw insult to injury she only had his hips premlinary threw ofa when he was 14 months old. Never retested him at the age of 2 . We had many text messages and phone conversations this was all suppose to be taken care of and he was suppose to be dna cleared of Dcm . I tried calling Margo several times immediately after going threw all the paperwork she would not answer . We waited and tried again nothing . We had to get back home . No shots, nothing on him . Ugh!!! Finally several messages later after we got home she finally called me and got snappy I told her this wasn’t our agreement and she advertised him on her website as well as clear and ofa good. The worse is yet to come stay with me . I expressed his anxiety his has had . He is scared of everything how can this beautiful handsome boy that has been shown be so scared of everything? We gave him space , time , love took him to the vet got him updated on shots as a responsible owner. How did this dog fall threw the cracks??? WTH? It gets worse he has lunged at me twice . Yet follows me everywhere we have experience and are very responsible. Today my 18 yr old was standing by my kitchen counter and he bit him on the leg !!! I’ve have reached out several times to Margo so did my sister she don’t believe it she says ! Will not refund our money says I signed a as is contract blah blah blah and blocked me !
Are you sure about that? Can you give me his AKC # and I'll verify. Also, if we can find his show results we can find out who his handler was. She could give us some insight on his temperament.He is one major away from being a AKC champion as well. I’m wondering now if that’s why he wasn’t finished ??
It wouldn't be the first time. Back in 2014, another crummy breeder all of a sudden wound up with about half a dozen Guardian Angel bitches on their website, and the Guardian Angels/Guardian K9 website disappeared. A couple of years later, she was applying for an AKC registered kennel name using Doberland.I'm also sorry to say that I wouldn't be surprised if she lied to you about getting out of breeding to dump a dog she no longer wanted or to change her kennel name again in an attempt to escape her reputation.
Unfortunately, I know all about that. I was a member of the training club where she claimed to have earned training certificates with her dogs back when she was Guardian Angel K9. She and someone else with her used to cart in a few puppies a few times per year into the basic classes and then pass it off with buyers as some sort of high mark of achievement. She actually started bringing in even more puppies when she switched to Doberland. Some people hoped she was going to make a real effort but, of course, that never happened.It wouldn't be the first time.
