Well, It's official! I am on the waiting list for a female dobe puppy. :) I found out last night that the pregnancy was confirmed. I didn't want to say anything until I knew for sure. There are a few people ahead of me for females, the owner of the father, and a lady who wants one for SAR work, so I am third for a female.

I finally got to meet the mother last weekend at a UDC show, and the father is here in Raleigh, NC. I saw him at a mock trial that I took Rommel to (we were doing a mock BH) and I got to see him again last weekend at the UDC show. I have been checking out the fathers website for quite some time though.

The father is Arras von Moeller Hof, SchH III, IPO II, FFB VG1-A, RH-1, WAE, CGC and the mother is Josiah's Saving Grace, VCD1, CDX, CGC.

They are due on Christmas Eve. I am really excited. If all goes as planned, I am taking Rommel to the Georgia-lina Schutzhund Club trial the weekend of February 10th to try for his BH, and I will be able to pick up the puppy the following week.

And just so that you all know.........YES, Rommel will be neutered between 18-24 months. He will be 15 months the week just before the BH.

I'm really excited! :dancing_b :dancing_b

Another thing that made me really happy was the longevity in the pedigree.

The sire is 6, the dam is 4, the father of the sire lived to be 9 years old, the mother is still alive, she was 11 in June. The dam's mother died at age 10, the father died in an accident. Alex v haus Jagen is the grandfather of both the sire and dam, and he lived to be almost 15 (14 years, 8 months) Then the C litter v Kaiserhaus (Catera & Cita) are on both sides, Cita lived to be 13, not sure about Catera, but Camilla (their sister) lived to be 11. So they have good longevity on both sides, which means hopefully she will be around a long, long time :D

I know his sister

Ava, she has an Otch here in Canada and was up there as far as working Dobermans in Canada.

I do know that she was a challenge to socialize; was quite shy.

Wow!! I'm so happy for you!!! He is a handsome devil and with quite a list of accomplishments! I bet your baby is going to be adorable :)

But I am concerned though.... My dear Piper just may feel "overdobed" in her house, she simply must come live with me :)
