Can I please remind anyone about to post the third "I want to buy a puppy but can't be arsed to do any research" post of the day, that at the top of every FB group there is a little magnifying glass which allows you to search the assorted wisdom of the group.While I commend your efforts to at least find out about our often wonderful breed, there really is no better way than to check out breeders and their dogs at shows or working trials. Talk to the people and their dogs to see if you're a good match.Even once you've got your short list, don't expect to pick up a puppy next week. (If you thought I was going to say Fur Baby give yourself a slap, you don't deserve a Dobermann).If you do the research and wait for your perfect family member you'll rarely regret the effort you put in.If you think you can just buy a Dobermann off the shelf, then you probably deserve everything you get.If you skipped all that, the message is "USE THE SEARCH FEATURE". I won't be having any more puppy posts today. 🤔☺️ ... See MoreSee Less
