I KNOW that a few of you have already explained to me in the past kind of/sort of difference between male and female dobes (in your experience), but I'm a ding-a-ling and cannot remember what thread that was posted in. Also, for future reference, you know...just in case I get a dobe one day, far, far away in the future, if I don't plan on showing or doing any type of real competition with any future, possible dobe of mine, would you suggest rescuing or purchasing from a reputable breeder. Pros and cons of both, please? I'll ALWAYS have a pit bull in my life (if I can help it), but I would also like a dobe one day as well. I want to research as much as possible now, to see if a dobe is even right for us. Ben grew up with dobes, but he always had males and they were always from a breeder. The breeder his family got their dobes from no longer breeds, though. I want a goofball dobe, but I would also want a dobe that is not only good with my family, but also good with people in general. Thanks in advance, guys!
