So this is my first dobie I have owned but I have been around them all my life. I bought a dog from a backyard breeder who was a idiot and was going to let puppies die because he was a fool. I say that I rescued my girl Brooklyn a beautiful red Dobie. When I got her she was full of worms and knuckled over but I bought her anyway to try and save her.... I also called the SPCA on the breeder so the other dogs would be rescued. So this is my first go with my very own dobie and my love for these dogs is unmeasurable. I am enjoying the little things like posting her ears and teaching her basic commands. I have gotten alot of valuable information from this website and wanted to finally sign up and say thank you to all of the wonderful members of this site.
