I want a doberman! I’ve had them twice before. And I love the breed. So loyal. I’ve had a male and a female. I liked my male’s disposition the best. But it depends on the line, I guess. I’m going to look for his line with AKC. His name was “Adam Le Beau”. His father’s name was “Dockstader’s Thor of Canzonet”.
Adam was a big dufus! He was as big as a great dane (almost). And had the personality of Marmaduke! He was just a big slobbery baby! He used to get beat up by little dogs in the neighborhood. We lived on horse property. So all the dogs ran loose. He didn’t have a mean bone in his body. He wasn’t too smart. But his sweetness made up for it. I say he wasn’t smart, because he got out in the horse arena, and chased horses all day. Then got kicked in the mouth and lost 4 of his front teeth. Then went back out the next day, and got kicked again, and broke his front right leg. The day he came back with the cast on his front right leg, he was out there chasing again, dragging the leg. Then he learned to point the leg forward and run. Looked like a jouster. I couldn’t stop him. There was no yard. And the kids at the riding academy next door encouraged the dogs to chase their horses to exercise them. When I took him back to the doctor, and told him about it, he just smiled, loving on him and said, “Well, he’s just not as smart as we’d like him to be.”
That was years ago. I want Adam back again. Wonder if I’ll find somebody from his blood line. I never bred him. Maybe a relative. He was a good one!
