    Agreed with @Doberman Gang and @GennyB ... I desperately want a blue my next time around, but its not a deal breaker... Especially knowing how hard it will be to find one from a reputable breeder. Once my kids are grown and moved out, we will likely start going to rescue route, we just prefer to do puppies with kids so we know the full background of the dog and can raise them with kids as early as possible. Im ok with knowing I may not get my blue for quite a few years.

    I quite frankly think it'll be a challenge to find a reputable breeder that doesn't really adhere to the program if you know what I mean. Quite frankly I'm a bit baffled as to why you are set on a color vs the health of a dog. You must think in the long term as there are far too many bad breeders out there that charge as much, or nearly for a quality bred dog. Then to think of just the vet expenses alone at what it costs with X amount of years to keep the poorly bred dog somewhat healthy and pain free. I can almost assure you that spending 3000 or even 2000 on a pup would be far cheaper in the long game, not too mention just the peace of mind alone that comes with having a healthy, well bred dog.

    Quite frankly if it's color your set on search out another rescue and don't let the BYB get your money to continue what some are against.

    Is a lesson I learned.
    I wanted a black/rust male when I went looking for my first Dobe.

    I came home with a red female that pretty much picked me.
    I hate to sound so corny.

    You can't always get what what you want, but sometimes, you get what you need.

    Good for you Gel, I'm excited for you. For the record I cried about daisy for days, cannot imagine what you went thru. I just am not good with loss, so I avoid talking about it.

    I couldn't agree more. Every dog I have owned was the dog I needed, even if I didn't even realize it at the time.
    Greta is a perfect example. Looking superficially, who needs a dog like Greta? Very poorly bred, sickly and of course expensive things to treat, absolutely no training and HUGE! We've all seen a giant out if control dog and what a PITA that can be. Who needs all that? The answer? Me. You all know her story, who she became and the difference she made in so many lives.
    I still remember watching her as a pup standing in the yard staring at me, begging to take her home. Looking back, I wish I would have done it sooner.
