I don't know that area well enough but this question will help people who have good suggestions.. how far are you willing to travel for the right puppy?

Michelle Mcgaha of A'carrig will be co-breeding a litter soon, and she's just south of Cincinnati. Her waiting list is probably already full, but it wouldn't hurt to contact her...I'm sure she could point you in the direction of another breeder.

I was just about to recommend Michelle! She's a lovely person and has a wealth of knowledge and will be able to point you in the right direction.

Thank you guys so much for your help, I am on A'Carrig page right now and they have no puppies available until March of this year. I am willing to travel at least 2-3 hours away to find the right Doberman. My boyfriend's birthday was yesterday and that is what he wanted but he will not settle for anything other then a male, black and rust; and of course he wants the biggest one. I cannot seem to find any... anywhere!!!!!

Oh trust me I know well enough about crappy breeders, I have been in the vet field of four years now and seen my fair share of it. I would love to adopt a Doberman but my boyfriend wants a very well breed Doberman. I found a couple breeders who had available litters (very well breed) but no males or they had already been sold. So now I'm back to square one... lol

I would rather not, just sounds to scary for the puppy. I wouldn't want him to be the frightened when he finally got to me. I have never done that before, can you give me information about it?

I know the feeling...when you're ready, you're ready. Unfortunately there's usually quite the wait. But trust me, it's sooo worth it. Good luck!

What kind of activities do you plan to do with your dog? This might help narrow down your search for the breeder. As I'm sure you're aware, most people wait upwards of 6 months for a well-bred puppy. Some, a year or so. The good Doberman people just don't create that many puppies. Also, the more specific you get with your requests, the longer the wait-time.

The purchase price of a Doberman is probably the cheapest part of owning one.

Start saving your money and in 6-12 months or however long, purchase from a reputable breeder. Instant gratification is not something you want when purchasing an animal, especially a Doberman.

It is not likely that you will find a reputable breeder with a puppy ready to go. Most have waiting lists and pups are most often sold before they are even born.

A good family companion is a healthy dog, as has been stated, purchase price is generally between $1500-$2000.00. This will get you a puppy from health tested parents (tested for vWD, DCM, Thyroid, Hips, etc.) and will include tail, ears, vaccinations up to date, worming... and other important things such as socialization, breeder support, etc.

Dobermans are riddled with health issues and it is wise to research thoroughly, build a relationship with a breeder and get on their waiting list.

Good luck with you search and welcome to DT!
