Thank you to all the wonderful folks who gave loving homes to my pups this year and before that.  I deeply appreciate your decision to support an ethical preservation breeder working to produce sound, healthy, predictable purebred dogs.  I know you have choices when it comes to purchasing a dog, and you face pressures from the anti-dog groups like PETA and HSUS that work to stop the breeding of companion animals. Only the public can stop backyard breeding (Craig's List Breeders) and puppy mills (foreign and domestic) by not supporting them or the "retail rescue" groups that resale those dogs. 

 Thank you for partnering with me to produce healthy, sound,
 typey purebred dogs for loving homes!

2021 (Spring) PLANNED Litters

I do encourage serious folks to contact me regarding reserving a 2021 pup.
I have some very nice litters planned.


I will be making a couple breedings late 2020/early 2021 strictly to produce foundation quality dogs for my breeding program.  A few pups from these two breedings may become available. Sires will be listed soon; I am importing semen from Europe from some of the top working Dobermans.  If you are interested in "just a Doberman" or "just a European show bred Doberman" these won't be of interest to you.  These are exceptional breedings for those looking for the very, very best. ​Compare my concern about DCM with any other breeder of European Dobermans.  A "big name" or "big price" does NOT equate with concern for the breed! Please, do your research on DCM and all health testing. Don't buy from those who make excuses about why they do not do all available DNA and other tests for DCM. 

Please be patient. I am a VERY small kennel.  


I am excited about where I have gotten the coats on my cairns.  I am now getting a very good percentage of really hard jackets. So for those who love cairns, but don't want all the artificial plucking and trimming necessary with the long, silky coats seen far too often today in pet and show breeding, you may really like my dogs. Not to mention they have rock solid, fabulous friendly temperament!  Stubborn, wicked smart and loyal, cairns remain dogdom's best kept secret!  I am currently negotiating the importation of semen and a pup from Europe to get some new bloodlines here in the PNW.
I am a small hobby breeder and breed for myself first, keeping pups to improve my line each generation.  But I can't keep them all.  I get many more inquiries then I have available pups and most litters are sold out before they are bred. For information on how to reserve a pup click HERE.


Please take a look at what I have planned for late 2020/Spring 2021. 
I am accepting deposits for these 2021 litters at this time.
