Welcome to our site!
My name is Kathleen Turner. My husband Al and I live in Simcoe, Ontario, Canada and have been involved in Dobermans for 9 years. I was a breeder of Scottish Terriers when we met and we still have a 14 year old girl named Molly. Al had a Doberman years ago named Hogan who has since crossed the rainbow bridge. When we decided to stop breeding the Scotties, Al mentioned that he’d like another Doberman. To be quite honest I was a little hesitant but after researching the breed we decided a Doberman would be a good fit for us.
A friend of our’s who was a Scottie breeder in Pennsylvania contacted us one day to tell us that a friend of her’s bred Dobermans and that she had a litter of puppies. We contacted the breeder and made arrangements to visit. Al was adamant that he wanted a black girl but while we were they he fell in love with a little red girl who we called Ruby. When we first brought her home, Molly treated her as though she was one of her puppies. I think when Ruby got big Molly realized that she was no child of her’s. Ruby was such a character as a puppy. She would gather all the shoes at the front door and take them to the living room and lay in the middle of them.
Even though we bought Ruby as a pet, Al decided that he’d like to attend handling classes and show her. She is now a Canadian Champion. We wanted her to be our foundation bitch however she is hyperthyroid and we made the decision to spay her. She is a wonderful pet.
So our story begins…
We follow the Doberman Pinscher Club of America’s Code of Ethics.
We do not condone or support the breeding of the “white”/albino Doberman as it is a genetic mutation.
