Opinion On Betelges Doberman Kennel?

Was looking into Betelges Doberman Kennel and I was wondering if anyone on here has firsthand experience with them. I’ve heard mixed things about this kennel, some people highly recommend them and others say they scam people and are some of the biggest cheaters in the business. I know there will be some negative things said about every kennel, but I’ve heard a lot of bad reviews and comments on this kennel. All info regarding this kennel welcome, but mainly interested in talking to people with firsthand experience.

No real first hand experience, just minimal contact a few years ago. Slobodan Maksimovic is the breeders name. He is a very nice man and is VERY proud of his dogs. BUT...huge but, he knows very little about the health problems that plague the breed. He does minimal health testing, just a DNA test and advertises his dogs as DCM negative. For me that is very deceiving and should be enough to make people walk away.
He breeds for beauty (and money judging by the amount of puppies he produces) which IMHO is wrong.

Thanks for the info, I’m part of another Doberman forum and quite a few people on there have said that he’s cheated them so I will definitely be looking elsewhere.

I bought a pup from slobodan last July, I’m over the moon and couldn’t be happier. My dog is healthy ect I found slobodan helpful and he couldn’t of made the import of my pup any easier. Definitely would recommend betegels kennels.. 10/10.

I did not get a dog from the Betelges Kennel but I do have a bitch from the sire Hugo Betelges and the dam (also Euro) was from a breeder. My bitch is 14 wks smart, gorgeous (blk/mahogany) and all Dobie. However the breeder is no longer breeding

She had a kind of stroke but improved over 2/3 weeks and seemed okay for about a year then just lost her balance and drifted off while out walking
Fantastic dog never had any issues with her but she was getting old around her back end so I think it was her time my oldest boy managed 13 years
