Howdy! We're from Vermont and found Linda Briar through a relay of sorts of doberman breeders. People were familiar with her litters and one breeder even suggested that she check out the pup we're eventually bought. Best pup and we went back for another when she passed on. We're removed here in VT and only kept in touch yearly with Linda with stories and pictures of the pup(s) she has sold us. I'm unaware of her day to day operations and others who might have dealt with her. My understanding is that Linda is not longer with us, she didn't reply to my last update and once told me that she would always reply if she 'could'. We'll be looking for another dobe after our senior girl leaves us, and hope that this forum will help us find a good, responsible breeder. We just love the breed. I've only had dobermans!
