Default dobermans???

could all of the people here with dobermans tell me a little about them? I am researching them and i do know about them. but i would much rather hear it from my fellow chazzers. i trust you guys more, i guess. and i love personal stories.

hopefully in a couple of years a Bruce and I will own our own home. We would be getting a second dog then. Him and I both do like dobermans alot. but this is as far as looks only. neither of us has ever been around a doberman.

I spent 4 years or more researching shelties before i decided to get one (partially because my living situation was secure a year ago) and i plan on spending lots of time thinking about a dobie before i would get one.

If i didnt want a show doberman is it possible to get a dobie with uncropped ears from a reputable breeder? i would say not....
just wondering because i do like natural ears better.
AND is it possible to find a white dobie from a reputable breeder? id say not to that also.

so... tell me about dobermans
with other dogs breeders
ability to protect the home
loyalty
just anything you think i should know.
or just give me a link to a website that will not lie to me! there are so many contradicting sites of so many dog breeds!

Until the Dobie people come along - you might be able to find an uncropped puppy, but whites are not something a reputable breeder would produce.

I've worked with them for years as a trainer and they are one of my top "What I'd Get If I Couldn't Have Collies" breeds. Silly yet regal at the same time.

hmm life without collies?? forget about it lol

yup, i figure if i want an uncropped i should just rescue. this is a few years down the road so i dont know if i want to show or not. i do want to show, but i can show and handle any of the 30 collies at work, so why get a show dobie?
i will just have to see what happens then.

Many breeders breed uncropped dogs. Some of the best imported dogs are uncropped and undocked, and are amazing dogs. I doub't you'd have any trouble finding a breeder to supply you with an uncropped puppy; you can specifically ask for that.
