Don't know how to determine if someone is an 'ethical' or 'good' breeder?
Then I encourage you to read the two articles I wrote on the subject. The link in just below.
Would you have someone build your house who didn't know the codes, didn't build to code or was not an expert in their trade? The same goes for buying a dog. Buy from an expert in the trade.
How Does It Work?
Some puppies will go to show homes, and the rest of the puppies will go to pet homes. Pet puppies are of the same quality as show puppies. Show puppies may have a structural trait that I would like to keep in my breeding program. Looking at them, most people would not know the difference.
Homes who have filled out an application, have had an interview, and have been vetted will be at the top of the list for available puppies.
Puppies will be matched to the most suitable home for them. Requests are taken into account, but the puppy will go to the home that suits its needs the most. You will not be able to choose your own puppy here.
No decisions are made as to the availability and placement of puppies until they are 8/9 weeks old and graded for both temperament and conformation.
Buying from a quality show breeder is not that same as backyard pet breeders who will guarantee you a puppy if you want one and if you pay a deposit. Here is a link to an article about buying from a show breeder. https://www.broadwaydobermans.com/what-is-a-preservation-breeder

Occasionally I will have or will know of an older dog who will be retired from a breeding program or who was returned to the it's breeder through no fault of it's own. These dogs make great pets for people who are not looking to housebreak and train a young puppy.
Send me a message if you are interested in a puppy, or download the puppy application and return.
This questionnaire is meant to assist us in defining whether a Doberman or Standard Poodle is the right choice for you and your family. Please realize that by completing this Questionnaire it is in no way a commitment on your part to purchase a puppy, nor on our part to sell you a puppy. It is simply a tool to get to know you better.
*** Shipping available on a case by case basis ***
How Old Will My Puppy Be?
Puppies should not go home before 8 weeks old. Most puppies go to their new homes between 8 and 11 weeks.
Can I Choose My Puppy?
Puppies will be evaluated on conformation and temperament and then matched to their best suited homes. Requested colour and sex will be taken into consideration. Beware of any breeder who let's you come into their home and take whatever you choose. Good breeders know their lines, the sire and especially the dam, and have spent hours watching the puppies and will know them best.
Will My Puppy Have Cropped Ears?
Yes, all puppies will be sold with cropped ears and docked tails. Support and education on posting and maintaining ears will be freely given!
