I did started there, found a dog that we were very interested in, but their new rules state that you cannot have a child younger than 7. Our kiddos are 2 and 6.Hi Becky!
I would start with the North Texas Doberman Rescue....they are close by.
Have a great day!
Just a pet. We've had American Bulldogs for years. Our last passed away in 2010. We feel it's time for another dog. We want a loyal and protective pet.Becky,
What kind of Doberman are you looking for? American? Euro? Show, working, or sport prospect? Or just a pet?
Do you like the euro or american look?Just a pet. We've had American Bulldogs for years. Our last passed away in 2010. We feel it's time for another dog. We want a loyal and protective pet.
My husband had a Doberman about 20 years ago. She slept at the bedside of his daughter. I burgler broke through the kitchen window one night. The dog literally pinned the man down until the police arrived.
I can't think of a better choice.
I understand and respect the choice to be selective and that a home with young children could be high risk. That being said, we have just begun our search, and will not be ready for a puppy until the end of this year, beginning of next. This is not a decision we are taking lightly. Just trying to get the needed info to make a good informed decision.I'd like to warn that many breeders won't like to place a dog with young children, just like rescues. Most breeders have had bad experiences with homes who can't handle a young puppy biting everything in sight, or when they're older, knocking the kids over at seemingly every chance. I'm not saying you're like this, but the breeder really won't know for sure whether you are or aren't. Reputable breeders also often have waiting lists, and when people are lining up for a puppy they'll want to choose the homes that are "lowest risk." because breeders really can be picky about who they sell to.
Sorry to point this out, you may meet a breeder who will take a chance on you, but be prepared to prove you're worth it!! Good luck!!
