Ok, why did I wait so long to own a Doberman again? My "first love" was a female named Lola, she walked with me through some huge life changes and the memory of her will be forever in my heart. That was many years ago and I am so happy to say I have a Dobe laying by my side once again. I think the reason for the wait is that I was waiting specifically for this pup. This girl is exactly what I was looking for - at 9 wks she is tugging, owning and bringing me the object. It is a beautiful thing to see great lines, (all German) come out in this breed, in any breed really. Watching my pup move so naturally in the first stages of what she was bred for is pure joy. I will be sure to keep you posted. PS on top all of this my lovely white shepherd is smitten with her, yes! Over and out, Jaffa.
