hello i put an ad up awhile ago and someone e-mail me about a website where i could get a dobe for the price i wanted, so i checked it out. well the kennel was in tx some where ,didnt give me a city or anything like that what so ever except a po box number. well i started to look at the website and everything, and i found a number to call if i was intrested in a puppy. well i found a 8 week old red/rust female and i got all happy for and the price is where i wanted it to be so i called and this is where it got weird......! when i called some ladie picked up and didnt know what i was talkin about. so i said ok i might have gotten the number wrong so i hung up. well 30 sec. later my phone rang with a blocked number so i did pick up and it was a guy talkin to me about the pups well i told him i didnt live far from tx and that i wanted to pick the dog up since i was in oklahoma and he said he didnt allow ppl to come to his house to look or see the pups i had to go off the pics he had. so i said no way thanks n e ways. this pretty much is a scam if i could remember the website i would tell but i cant sorry,..... but can anyone give me a website that i can get a good dobe to be my pal. i live in oklahoma so any of the states around here would b great thanx for listening.

I volenteer at a shelter. Please consider adopting from one. The dogs in the shelters are so greatful when they find new homes and they love you twice as much. There is nothing wrong with them, they need you more then a breeders pup.
If you go to the doberman pinscher club of america web site dpca.org you will find a link to your local state chapter. You will see ads for fostering or adopting dobies in your area and you will see a link for the secretary. I would call her/him and ask for a list of their breeders. You can expect to pay between $1,000.00 and $1,500.00 for a good pet quality and upward of $2,500.00 for a show quality pup.
As an adoptive parent it would be my first choice and you are in an area where there are dobes in need. If you are just wanting a pet, why not? I have a gorgeous female who people think is a show dog and I am always happy to tell them she's a rescue. The joy of rescue too is you know what you are getting most of the time and the cost is very reasonable.
thank you all very much for your advice!!! first off i just want to say that i have looked into shelter and resuce places but i got turned down twice due to the fact that im not older enough and that im not home during the day. one of the ladies said that she didnt want me to leave the dog outside when im gone. i said that every one in my house works so she/or he would have to stay out side like my husky bandit. he stays outside from like 8 to 2 when i get home. so thats one reason why i couldnt get one from a resuce place and another was that i didnt live near the foster parents. i just want a pal to hang out with and exercise with im getttin fat lol. school bus girl thanx for the offer but i couldnt let you do that i wouldnt feel right. but can i have your website add. so i can check out you dobe's im sure the wonderful. my e-mail add. is email@example.com. thanx alot ppl
