Ernie and I found our first doberman on Christmas 1988. Cleopatrice Harraden joined us from Way Kennels in Kinston, NC and in 1991, we began breeding these wonderful animals. Our first male was a beautiful blue doberman named Berlin's Blue Silver. Cleo and Berlin produced many beautiful pups, one of them being our former matriarch, Leah. Sadly, Leah passed away in early April 2008, nearly reaching the age of 13 years old.
Over twenty-seven years later, Ernie and I still breed our beloved dobermans, and still have pups from our original girl, Cleo, but now, we have pups from several generations forward. We brought in several pups from other breeders, tested them for health standards, and paired them up with playmates to share their days. At the present time, we own 17 beautiful dobermans of various ages. Our newest outside addition, MOJO, was born May 3, 2017 and brought in from Kentucky.
We have a continuing waiting list for our pups and usually have several litters a year with our pairs. Females are usually bred once a year after they are 18-24 months old, the accepted age to start breeding females. Our dogs are tested for von Willebrands, prior to breeding, and currently, all but one male, are clear. He is a vWD carrier. Several of our dogs are also longevity certified with the Doberman Pinscher Club of America.
Because we are so familiar with our doberman lineage, we are able to offer an extended health guarantee on all our pups for any genetic problems.
The $900 charge for our pups include limited AKC registration, tails docked, dewclaws removed, several puppy wormings and shots up to date when the pup is picked up. Full AKC registration is $1000. It also includes a puppy starter kit, milk supplement powder, a new toy, a baby blankie, and a puppy collar of your color choice. We no longer offer shipping, but we do work with a pet transport service who can bring your pup from our door to yours for an additional fee. We do not include ear cropping in that price. Delivery charge includes cost of a new carrier (if used), time involved to make arrangements that are agreeable to both parties, and working the schedule for the safe delivery of the pup directly to you. Pups are normally gone from the Dobieden when they're ready for their ears to be done.
