he is an adopted boy, suffers from separation anxiety( you should hear what he has done in previous homes.. ) and as a dilute has CDA ( color dilution alopecia), no one else wanted him, I needed a dobe, and the rest will be history.
I keep goin back to his muzzle and the skull size. He looks more defined and seems larger than other Dobes I've seen. I was raised up near A breeder that had several and he always seemed to want to get A larger stouter muzzle. Chuck seems to have A good sized front portion.
I'm no expert, I'm looking at things I like personally. I always have been A cheering section midget for the throw aways.
Bella Blu, no one else wanted Charlie as he suffers from separation anxiety and his prey drive is VERY strong, he would go nuts chasing things from window to window in his last home, husband's cats had to move out as Chuck would not stop hunting them, he had chewed through every kind of crate know to mankind, eaten window sills, doors, curtains, couches, interiors of cars, etc.
Chuck has been here for a year now and I can trust him around my chickens and ducks, he and they wander amongst each other all he time here.
The Goats are still of TOO much interest to Chuck to trust him around them, but we are working on it.
surfer, I read the ww stories.
ww, Chuck is a nice, standard, sound, balanced dog, no one part stands out over any other. You are right about his muzzle, it has good length and depth. He is about 27 1/4 inches tall and about 78 pounds.
I showed and bred dobes for over 30 years. last litter is just over 7 years old now, I will not breed again. getting to an age where I do not know how much longer I can be responsible for any more dogs bred by me. Breeding dogs is a BIG responsibility.
