I always have questioned any pure bred dog of good (?) breeding for less than $300....maybe today that should be $500. Any good breeder will put the prices up where only serious owners will be interested. Your $50 dogs have had no health checks etc.....You'd be better off going to a HS where you get what you see for the same price.

I agree. I got a purebred dog from a shelter, and she only cost me $100.

A good dobe just pet quality will be at least 500. If you want anything better plan on 1500. You also have to figure in ears,which should be done.

Smile Getting A Doberman Puppy

First off, the puppy's parents should have had all the necessary health tests for cardiomyopathy, v Willebrands, hip xrays. And of course the ears should be cropped if purchased from a country that allows cropping. The minimum for a quality puppy would be $1200. Unfortunately all the old, trusted breeders are either deceased, or no longer breeding. The newer bloodlines are nothing spectacular. Just remember to avoid the places like Hoyt or Kimbertal!!!!!
