Hi rabbitsarebetter... Dobies are a wonderful breed, I've enjoyed owning and training them. Someones already refered you to the site I'd look at first for info, the DPCA. Best to do you homework on genetic diseases and health problems prevalent in this breed. Stay away from anyone breeding whites, Z factor, and really look at as many breeders/pups as possible, before selecting your breeder. Then get yourself on the waiting list. For a really good puppy from a well know breeder, it could take awhile, but it's worth the wait.

We have two Dobes that come to the local park - a chocolate and a black. Floppy ears, full tails. Spectacular. I love them! I agree - Dobermans are a lovely breed and Max and I would like to share our lives with one at some stage in the future.

Dobies are beautiful dogs...with the tail and uncropped ears!

That pic was cute Collie!

I like dobes. . .I much prefer them uncropped and undocked though. Or at least uncropped.

Dobes are great!


thats my big baby-he is both cropped and docked-and as clumsy as they are I would have it no other way. there are some great pics on another dobe forum that I go to with a ton of floppy eared tailed dobes and its cute but I don't think it would work at my place

White dobes are bad news. Any breeder that breeds any dog with white in its lines needs beat. there is no way around that at all. there are a couple threads here on it,I'll have to look for them. I have literally never met anyone who wasn't absolutely crazy that supported breeding white dobes.

they are big goofy dogs overall,kinda clownish. They love there people. Almost every dobe I have met has been a velcro dog. My boy wants to be by my side all the time. they are not supposed to be mean to strangers(would be surprised how many people want that) but they are supposed to look each person they meet over and they kinda approve them or not. My boy has growled twice in his seven years. One time at a friends party when some idiots wouldn't leave and I was getting poed and loud with them,and once at a park when it was me and byron and this strange man who kept getting closer. that time byron went all snarly nutts and the guy backed up. I still wonder if byron read my fear or read off that guy-but whatever he did it got him away and thats all I cared.

My boy loves water-but only if it can't reach his chest!He is so goofy. He just wants to run through the creeks. there have been a couple times he has fallen in and I've thought I would have to jump in after him because all he does is flail his front legs around. I always feel bad cuz I laugh every time,but it looks so funny. Or if he goes out in the lake when he realizes he can't touch he goes to the nearest person or dog and tries to climb on top of them.

honestly if you are not worried about showing/docking/cropping I would go with a rescue. there are tons and tons. my pound gets beautifull cropped dogs in a couple times a year and there are a ton of great dobne rescues.

I wouldn't buy an undocked dobe in the states-no good breeder would do that. I'd also be cautious with uncropped snce most good breeders are striving for show dogs and they want there pups to look their best and almost 100% of the time that includes the crop.

And they ahve tons of health probelms-so trying to pick based on who will give you one without doing their ears is not the way to go. There are so many people who lose their dobes young and I already cna't imagine what I'll do when my boy gets sick.
