Hi my name is Ryan, and I'm looking to get a new Doberman pup! I'm extremely excited to move forward with this, but I don't want to rush into it at the same time. I need help picking out a good place to buy from, and from reading these forums you guys seem to know your Dobermans! I'm looking for a best friend and a protector, not necessarily a show dog... so I don't think the $1,000 dogs are for me. I just can't afford that. So my questions is: Where can I buy a quality Doberman in North Carolina (or in the souther part of Virginia) without breaking the bank?

Thanks!

Just because you don't want a "show dog" does not mean you do not deserve a healthy, structurally sound dog from health tested, and proven parents. The average price for a Doberman from a reputable breeder is $1500-2500. The $500 over your budget is IMO worth it to save up. This breed is an expensive one. It will either cost you more up-front, or cost less upfront and a whole lot more later on.

Do not forget that back yard breeders (under $1000) usually do not include ear cropping, and if they do, they usually charge extra for it and its usually a bad crop job. By the time everything is said and done, you will be alot closer to $1500 than you thought.

Please look at your other thread. I posted a link to a rescue that has 2 puppies available as well as some young dogs.

You're actually getting some very good responses in your other thread.

Just in case, the breeders generally get recommended in your area are - Allure, Goldgrove, Talledega, Scudamore
