  1. Thanks all. I ended up buying a Cane Corso puppy. See my dp image.
  2. Yours definitely looks like a gumtree one though...!
  3. Find me one dobermann for fifty dollars and I will buy it.
  4. By the way, the local purchasing power in Australia is 15% higher than in UK. And after Brexit I think purchasing power will further decrease. Its no more a function of population density but other factors impact a lot too.
  5. But coming back to the main productive argument. The prices for Dobermanns are unrealistic and I would blame those people who are buying without understanding the responsibility and after one year just surrendering or saying "our circumstances have been changed". In Covid lockdown I do not know which circumstances change they are talking about. The truth is that people get bored with their Pandemic partner after a year or so: https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/meadow-springs/dogs-puppies/doberman-for-sale/1280802234 That is after destroying a dog they just want to get rid of it....!
  6. Have a look its from the same website, sweetie.
  7. Please have a look at this link, they are not 2-3000 Pounds. They are 1000 etc. https://www.pets4homes.co.uk/classifieds/whpmyxto-doberman-champion-line-kc-registered-pups-bristol/
  8. I think the problem is lockdown in a different way. The biggest issue is that people are looking for pandemic partner dogs, which has lifted the price. Consequently, on one hand breeders are just asking rudimentary questions to pose that their dogs went to good houses (while looking for big money naive clients), etc. On the other hand they will never tell about the real questions, e.g. temperament, parents, etc. This is because people looking for pandemic dogs do not care about it, and are happy to pay 4000-5000 for a 'good breed' dog. I have noticed, many people surrendering 6 months to one year old good breed dogs (after destroying them) and selling them for 5000 etc. Since they have enough fun showing a dog sitting next to them on zoom meetings. And in reality, when it comes to caring a dog they give a damn. I think, majority of public has developed serious cognitive disorders. In UK a good bloodline doberman pup is 1000 pounds or less. Where as in here, QLD and WA are still selling at reasonable 2000+ but in Vic, its like crazy 4000, I mean for what? I do not know whats happening. Spoke to couple of people on fb, etc. same stories, do not know about the breed but just want to keep the dog for their kids, etc. There should be a BAN on surrendering a dog after buying of 3 years minimum. Then no one will buy, I bet!
  9. Why its so hard to find a decent dobermann pup (with a realistic price 2000-2500) in Melbourne (Victoria). I have been searching for a dobermann pup for myself, but have come across, plenty of fake breeders and sellers. Majority of the breeders are hobby breeders and have no idea about the breed/temperament/colour/energy levels. Majority breeders will pose they are very busy, all their pups have been booked and will ask you to fill a lengthy application (although majority of the applications are copy paste from other sites), but the bottom line is that their breeds are just ordinary. They will criticise gumtree buying etc. and will use buzz words (dog show, bloodline) but the bottom line is they want their pups to be sold at whatever price they are asking. All drama....! And I am not ready to pay any advance. I want to see a pup and pay for it. Please, help me with a decent breeder and approximate price of a dobermann pup in Melbourne, Victoria region. Thanks in advance!
