Just thought I'd say hi......just joined the forum and Rocky is our third Dobe. He's 4.5 months old and is a wonderful, affectionate little guy (although he won't be little for much longer!).
We lost our eight year old male in January (to peritonitus following intestinal surgery), and we really couldn't live without a Doberman. Rocky has helped fill the void that our beloved Caesar left. We have other dogs (a Puggle and a Beagle), but nothing is quite like the intuitive, almost human companionship of a Dobe.
Thanks for all the kind words, guys! Rocky says "thanks" for the warm welcome.
I've been looking through the galleries and there sure are some beautiful dogs on this forum....of course ALL Dobie's are beautiful. They really are a very special breed.
Rocky got his name when we first went to visit him at the breeder's when he was six weeks of age. I picked him up and the first thing he did was swing his already large paw at my face and clock me with a great left hook. "Nice shot, Rocky!" I said.....the name stuck.
I'll post more picks as he grows older. Thanks again for the welcome!
