are here to get a purebred Doberman puppy, yes?
DO NOT buy a
Doberman puppy without PAPERS*!
wanted a Doberman, so I looked in the local paper and there they were, Doberman
puppies for sale, $300.00. It seemed so easy, it seemed so quick and the price
couldn’t be beat!!!!!!!!!!”
you plan on having children, then you are planning, right?
you are pregnant, you can plan for 9 months, right?
you are adopting, it will take time and you have to plan even more, right?
PLEASE, take your time when choosing a Doberman for your family.
of what you want from your Doberman (standard, health, temperament, color) and
then find the right breeder.
do not have to find a breeder that has been breeding champions for years, but
you should look for a breeder that is responsible.
you are going to call a person from the paper or from the Internet, go to “A
Good Breeder” or at least ask these questions:
the breeder own the parents of the litter? And if yes, are they active
with the dogs, i.e., are they competing in obedience, tracking, agility, or
the parents have papers (NO PAPERS--NO PUPPY*), If they do have papers,
ask for the AKC registration #. If there is a letter ”Z” in registration #
that means they have “white or albino” in the background. These dogs
are prone to many health problems and caution should be exercised before
purchasing a white or albino.
the litter registered? If not, find out why. If the answer is “AKC messed up
the papers”, that is very unlikely. It could be that one of the parents has
Limited Papers and that is why the litter cannot be registered.
PAPERS NO PUPPY*)
you pick up your puppy and the breeders does not have registration papers for
you by saying "Oh I had no time to register the litter yet" then you
should wonder what else did they not have time for with this litter”….
PAPERS NO PUPPY*)
the dewclaws removed and is the tail docked?
the ears cropped? (Why should you go out and find a vet to get it done? It will
cost you between $300 and $500. Add this to the cost of the puppy.)
did they breed? (Good answers: to try and get a dog they can use for competition
or to better the Doberman Standard)
of down payments. Don’t let anybody talk you into a down payment to get a
better deal. You are not buying a car you are trying to find a companion.
of Internet sales. Some of them are PUPPY MILLS.
you buy from the Internet, go to the local paper. In many instances you are
purchasing the some quality puppy and you paying a much higher price for one on
the Internet. “Anybody that advertises more than one breed on their
website, I wouldn’t touch with a 10’ pole.”
you are not sure if you found the right Internet site or breeder, please feel
free to contact
us. We will do our best to help you.
* NO PAPERS NO PUPPY
- We stress this issue in the hopes that it will cut down on people that do not
respect the standard and breed to better the health of Dobermans, but rather
breed only to make a quick buck.
