Our dogs are loved and well maintained – but we continue this effort by being cognizant of our numbers. We only keep enough dogs that we can spend individual time with them. So, it is a win-win for the new owner, the dog, and us. People who have adopted our adults are typically thrilled to have a lovely companion, without having to go through puppy stages. The owners find it just as easy to bond with an adult as they would a puppy. Dobermans can live to be as old as 10-13 years, in some cases. There is still plenty of time to be enjoyed with them from the point at which we allow them to go to their loving, forever homes.
