My advice is to wait until you and your wife are on the same page. Raising and training a puppy will take consistency from both of you and you say your wife is not so willing right now.
Your wife is worried about the dog making the house smell, that usually equals - dog stuck outisde. Dobermans do NOT make good outside dogs or good kennel dogs. They need to be with you. They will stress themselves sick or become destructive if left outside away from their people.
Not to mention in places with excessive heat, the dog must be kept inside. Dobermans are not very hardy to temperature extremes.
For the puppy's sake, TAKE YOUR TIME on this one and make sure you are both on the same page. Please.

The only breeder I know and like in Arizona is Vicaral - Victoria Hall.
