Wow, okay just last night I found the forum list. This whole time I've been reading, I thought the only topics were the ones on the homepage. HA!
So here's my introduction: I'm Cara and I have 1 husband, 3 children, 2 cats, and one Doberman. I am a nurse.
I just got my Dobe this week. He's a red baby that is about 11 weeks old. His birthday is Oct 28. He's getting his ears done on Monday. We got him from a lady who thought she could leave him locked up inside all day every day and while she went out of town. I'm sorry he spent those two weeks with her, but I'm so glad that we got him. (Because she was trying to cut her losses and move on, we got him for a steal.)
We looked at rescued dogs (too bad I didn't see that IRD site) first, but we have small children, so I was hesitant to get an adult dog. Maximus has been AWESOME with our two kittens and our kids. We're caretakers, so the idea of a rescued dog was very appealing. We'll get one someday I'm sure. Max will need a brother or sister dog, right?

Welcome! Glad you could give him a home. That would have been a terrible life for him.
My first Doberman was also a red boy named Max, but it was for Maximillian.
Enjoy your pup. Bond with him, socialize him and train him. Then you can think about adding another dog. But since you already have a male, you will want to consider a female. Male Dobermans are known for having same sex dog aggression so you don't want to risk having some major dog fights and or having to rehome one of them.
Good luck with your puppy, they are a blast!

Welcome CAra:
It doesn't take long to get addicted to Dobes - and it will only get worse - atually in this case worse is better.

Hi Cara. Maximus is a beautiful little red boy. I used to have a red male named Sundown, and he was a real sweetie. Now I have two black & rust females, Darmok (3 yrs old) and Sasha (2 yrs old). I certainly understand what you mean when you say you are 'addicted' to your doberman!!! My family has come to an understanding that I love my dogs, and they are a major part of my life, and it's all cool! The people that I work with know what a dobe-fanatic I am, too, and they are always asking if I have new pictures of my girls---of course I do! Every good dobie-dad carries puppy pics in his wallet, doesn't he??? Anyway. I looked at your gallery, and ALL your kids are very stunning!

Lapdog, we live in FL, so that might be a bit far for a playdate. :)

2dobies, I understand about the pictures. I have a locker at work and all of my kids are on there, so my first night back after we got Maximus I stuck one up of him, too. I work with a few new grandmas and they all wear these buttons with the baby's picture on it. I said I was going to get one of those for my new baby.

We have our Valentine's Family picture coming up. (It is like the normal person's Christmas card, but we're a little slow so ours gets there in February.) Maximus will be on it. This is just how I was with my last dog. He was a (mutant) beagle and I tried making him a pocket dog.

Hello, I just wanted to let you know that I just got my first dobie about a week and a half ago. And her birthday is also Oct 28th. Dakota is black and rust. She just got her ears done on Friday. I'm like you and quickly getting addicted. This is my first dog in several years and I find myself going to the pet store alot for new toys and pee pads; agghhhhh. :) But it is worth it.

Can I ask why you are using pee pads? The reason I ask is because once they learn to pee in the house, it's hard to train them to go outside.
