No puppies at this time. Let us know if you want to be on the notification list for our next litters.
Occasionally we know of other breeders with pups available.
A word about size. I like large dogs. Unfortunately, there is a price that is paid for size/weight. Most vets have a chart that shows how weight and aging correlate. As a general rule, the heavier the dog, the shorter the life span and the more likely you will run into orthopedic and cardio. problems. As such, we strive to breed dogs that fit within the Doberman standard in order to breed a Doberman who will be with you or us as long as possible. Of course nature throws curves and that little pup that somebody got because it was the smallest ---- oops - it ends up being the largest of the litter. That said:
Sire stands 28.5" at shoulder. When he walks between my legs, I'm on tiptoe or he doesn't make it.
Dam #1 - Autumn, is not large, weighs ~70# and stands 25" at shoulder. Dam #2 -Lizzie is slightly larger. Millie is a bit larger yet and Lucy Liu is between them both. Update - our current male is Cu's son and I just can't bring myself to delete the info. on Cu who was my long time pal. Demon is lighter than Cu - about 80# but about as tall and one of the most agile dogs we have ever seen. You'll have to excuse us, the dog roster has changed over the years and a few are no longer with us and as mentioned, I can't bear to remove their names from the family list. And that new addition,
Gem, is going to be ever increasing fun as hinted in the Gem Gumball video --

Pups have tails docked. Ears natural. You can have them cropped if you must. Me, I hate hospitals and it's still the same dog.
Offspring from this breeding are generally fairly large (within standard) with great personalities. Their major, consistent characteristics have been intelligence, great personality and desire to work. Yes, they are family dogs.
Deposits accepted after pups are one week old. Lower price for early deposit. You can visit to see them or the parents by appointment.

Dobermans and cats (more to come)
You want to buy a Doberman adult or puppy. Why? For many people, "Doberman" is synonymous with aggression and guard dog. Yes, Dobermans have been used as guard dogs but actually, there are many other breeds that do better for that purpose as Dobermans are thinkers - they work to understand why things happen. They don't work well as mindless "attack on command" people. A house pet Doberman would probably defend you if it saw a reason to do so and yes, if it saw a real threat. Hey, it's a friend. They are thinkers. But if you want a dog that is generally aggressive towards all strangers and is an obvious "protector", please pick another breed. So back to the basic question of "Why do you want to get a Doberman?". If the answer is that you want to get an intelligent dog to work with and help bring out the wonder that is inherent in the breed, if you want to have the enjoyment of working with a Dobe and watching it learn, earning its friendship through the work that you do with it, then go for it! If you simply want a dog for protection or a mindless companion, there are a host of other breeds that will serve you better.
Dobermans are great "family dogs". When our oldest daughter was a wee thing, if she fell in the yard, you'd hear a "Don't save me" as invariably if the dogs saw her fall, they'd run to check her out and make sure all was well and copious nuzzling and licks would follow.
Now for some there is a downside to all of this wonder and fun of Doberman ownership. That little fact that the Doberman owner has to be willing to work with this thinking being and teach it, helping it use its amazing intelligence. They need work and challenge or out of boredom they will look for things to do. They are more than "just a dog".
As I try to write this I have a 5+ yr. old coming over with toy in mouth and nudging my elbow, trying to get me to work with him so since we're pals it's five minutes of "Find" games, hiding things for him to find or just having him pick up dog toys scattered around. He could play with other dogs but human interaction is favored and if not challenged in some way, I'd hate to think what that brain could conjure up for entertainment and to get some attention. Does this scare you? No need for fear. It is close to amazing how routine training sessions will turn that dog that might tear up things into a dog you can trust left alone for a day. We don't have to worry about dog destruction at all. If a puppy looks like it wants to use teeth on something that is a "No", make some negative sound and give it an alternative toy. We never have chewed furniture in our house of many dogs and pup.
Even after about 40 years of breeding Dobermans, we constantly get surprised with how they connect dots to understand the world you share with them and change to adapt to it. One night one of our "kids" who is allowed IN bed with us, went into the bedroom before we got there and turned down sheet and bedcover to lie on the bed on the sheet as it is not allowed to lie on electric blanket, only under covers with us. Now how do we handle that? Smile for a start. .
