I am looking for a doberman pinscher to add to my family. I will be moving out of my mom's house in a little over a year and would like to have her by then but i'm not sure what to look for when searching breeders. I was also wondering about how big do they get or does that vary deppending on the breeders? I would really appreciate all the help I can get. Thank You

www.akc.org There is a lot of information about different breeds. If you live in a tick area make sure you use revolution once a month or something to keep the ticks and fleas off. Erlichia is a nasty disease for dobies that comes from ticks. Good luck. I personally enjoy the minpin. The tiny ones!

Find a doberman rescue, there are many looking for a home & they can match you & they take the time to know the dog, and it sounds like you will need a dog that gets along with other animals & does not have a strong prey drive, sometimes it's better to just have 1 or 2 pets that you can afford to take care of & give them the love they deserve.

many breeders breed for different things like size. i had a friend who bred newf and like the real large one. she had a friend who bred them to be a little smaller. the temperment is the most important thing. you can contact the qkc and telling them what you ae looking for and they may be able to steer youto a breeder near you that breeds for the quilities you are looking for
