    I'm on my 3rd Doberman after falling in love with the breed with my 1st in 1991, Brutus, had the European blood, which made him huge. However as huge as he was, he was forever loyal and loved by all because of his great disposition. He lived to almost 13 before succumbing to bloat. I only waited 2 weeks before getting my next Doberman from a very reputable Philadelphia area breeder, this breeders Dobies went out the door starting at $4000.00. However, with some very strong referrals, financial assistance from both my mom & dad, and sympathy for our loss of Brutus, we were able to purchase Dandi, a handsome stud male who will always be my wife's favorite dog of all time. He had many of Brutus' traits internally but he was definitely showdog material, just a sleek black racehorse who also lived to almost 13 before succumbing to older dog issues. After Dandi passed in June 2017, we waited till October 2017 before purchasing our present male Doberman, Nico from a country breeder. Why from a country breeder, I'll never really know. It's like one day my wife was casually scanning the internet looking at Dobes, eventually having Nico land in our lap after breeder put him up for sale at the last minute. Price was right, 1st shots, ears & tail were all done and it just seemed right. So, Nico who has recently turned 1 yr old, is 28 1/2 inches tall and 92 lbs and still growing. His bloodlines are European and he's very active and always looking to stay busy & active. So far, so good and I dont see any reason why my 3rd Dobie won't bring me the same loyalty, love, and satisfaction my previous 2 did. Dedicated owners of Dobermans will always have that as long as they are reciprocal to their dog needs.
