Hey everyone! Thanks to everyone who shares pictures/stories/information on this website....I have been using it to further educate myself on the joys of having a Dobie! I thought I should probably stop reading from the shadows and post a picture or two of our new little man - Leon.

We found this guy through a close friend's breeder. We've been talking about getting another Dobie for a while and thought it wouldn't hurt to stop by and look at the new puppies. Of course we fell in love with all of them. We had no idea a solid black even existed and after we saw him we had a tough time deciding which to add to the family.

Yes, he is SOLID BLACK. This had me a little hesitant to even post a picture of him in fear of reader's negativity (after doing some reading about other posts on solid blacks)...but hopefully that won't happen :). Both his parents are AKC registered and were on-site. He has the frame and personality of all other Dobies. He was in a litter with another solid black female, a couple other black/rusts and one blue and one red. This is our second

Here he is after we first brought him home...and another two weeks after getting his ears done.

Enjoy!

Bare with me on figuring out how to post the correct size photos.

Very cute pictures--and welcome to DT.

If you've been reading other information about "all black" Dobermans you probably have learned already that they are a fault in that the puppy does not show the markings as required by the standard. Too much melanisim (the pigment that controls the color). He may lighten up some with age--you can see that the black on his muzzle is different than the black on his forehead. A good many puppies who have a lot of black on their muzzles and feet do lighten in time.

Doesn't make much difference--he's yours, he's cute--the coloring isn't correct but it's explainable.

Enjoy your new guy.

Leon is adorable. If those pictures are 2 weeks apart, Leon is going to be a big boy. As before, keep posting pictures of him. I can't wait to see his ears.

:welldone:

Of course not all of us here on this forum agree with the stuck up "Doberman Masters of the Universe" when picking apart someones Dobbie! Don't be afraid to post anything, you'd be suprised at how versiatle the "other members" can be!

I think he's beautiful and he looks like a "Ninja Doberman" sneeky sneeky! What a beautiful silky coat. He has a very sweet face! Enjoy your baby!!!

Kira Hime sends him kisses!

Welcome to DT and grats on your new pup! Thanks for posting pictures, he is very neat. I do hope the breeders aren't purposely trying to breed for solid blacks though and that both of them were sold with spay/neuter contracts. You sound like you really care about your pup so I hope your breeder did the proper genetic health testing on the sire and dam. Do you plan on doing any sport with him or is he going to be just a spoiled pet? :)

Yes, I can definitely anticipate that you're going to have much difficulty in the future convincing the casual observer (non-Doberman aficionado) that your cute boy is indeed a Doberman!

Maybe you could explain to the layman that he is one of the rare "Ninja Dobermans" (as already suggested) or how about "Stealth Doberman" or "Phantom Doberman"? What the heck, why not just pull out all the stops and call him a "Super Ninja Phantom Warlock King Doberman" ?! :shocking:

You're also going to have trouble detecting when a "Dobe Poke" is coming your way!! :)

Congrats with your new puppy. If you are not planning to show your puppy ... then who cares. I am sure he will be a great addition to your family.

Welcome to DT! Your pup is cute and it'll be interesting to see if his coat changes a little as he grows.

I really hope this thread doesn't turn into a "lets bash the passionate members of DT" sort of thread. That being said, for us who support the ethical breeders I want to suggest not saying this...

Cute, and possibly a joke, but we really don't need another fault popularized (warlocks, albinos) so that the BYBers can jump onto it.

Please continue to post pics as he grows. I've never seen an all black dobie and he is super cute.
