    I don't know about in Virginia but I got Dominick from a very nice breeder in Wisconsin. We did research on the breed for 6 months then went to many breeders, but none of then were right. We ended up picking Dominicks breeder because the lady had been attacked once by a pack of dogs. She had to have multiple reconstructive surguries on her face. She now breeds for temperment and trainability, not just looks.

    Would you please consider checking the adoption lists for Dobermans first, before going to a breeder? Just take a few minutes look :)

    I had a Doberman / German Shepperd in high school - no pics unfortunately.
    She was without a doubt the smartest dog I ever had.

    I have two Dobies - Samson, 11 and Nitro, 1 year. We lost our female, Sadie, several years ago - she had Multiple Myeloma. They are GREAT dogs - very smart and quick learners! Your Dobie looks like a sweetheart! We've rescued/adopted all our dogs - I've just never met a Dobie I didn't fall in love with!

    Before looking at breeder we did try getting one from a rescue. Unfortunately we lived in a townhouse at the time without a fence. The rescues around here in the chicago suburbs have pretty tight rules on adoption. But if you live in an area that is fine with it I would highly suggest looking at the local shelters and rescues. I am 100% for adoption.
