My name is Nathan and I am new to dobermantalk. My fiance and I have just purchased a dobie pup from a breeder about an hour away from us. He is black and tan and we have come up with the name "kit". His stitches were just removed this Saturday from his cropping and he is becoming a ball of fire. This is the first doberman that I have owned, but not the first dog. I welcome any advice for a new owner and would love to hear what experienced owners have to say about this wonderful breed. Thanks.
