I came across DT when I googled a breeder I found on-line. This breeder's web-site sounded great with numerous blog posts and information about the breed. After reading about this particular breeder out of UT or AZ, I found some red flags that has helped me re-evaluate his facility as one where I would get a dog.
I am interested in getting a Doberman puppy (I've had two both from BYB...now I know better.) They were both great dogs and lived to be 10 and 11 but both had health issues. One had hypothyroidism and diabetes and one had the worst Wobblers my Orthopedic vet had ever seen...$7,000 surgery with plates and hardware in her neck extended her live by 7 years. I would like to find a breeder near me (New Mexico) but that is proving to be a challenge.
This is a great site with a lot of good information.
