When I opened GD today, there was an advertisement for Doberman puppies listed as an add.  It featured lots of pictures of puppies on the right hand side of the home page.  It lists "AKC Large Dobermand Pups" from "SureShotDobermans."  They are advertising currently "two litters", with your "choice" of puppies.  I am suspect of this organization and concerned that by appearing on the GD home page, people may mistake this as an endorsement. Does anyone else get this advertisement when they open the home page?  Webbie, is this okay?

Hi Kate,

Maybe it is a random thing that pops up for some people and not others.  Other people might get a different ad, at different times.  Seemed like a place that was spitting out puppies to me.  I didn't want folks here to think it was an endorsement of this breeder/kennel.

Have a good one!

I have seen it too on occasion.  I am assuming that it is because of the cookies on my computer.  Maybe try clearing them out?

Yes I have seen it too and I have also seen it on my charter home page when it loaded and wondered if it was using cookies or something to "read" what areas I am interested in and one of those being dobermans and I was horrified by the ad too as it did seem like an endorsement type ad not sure if the webby admin can change who advertises here or not but it did bother me too.

Let Webby know - I know a while back there was an ad or ads for White Doberman breeders that he blocked.   He has the ability to block specific things like that as far as I know, but someone needs to tell him about them - PM or probably this post will get to him.

Hi Webby, Oh Great One, in your magnificent benevolence, can you look into SureShotDobermans and block them from advertising on the site if not appropriate?  :)  Thank you!

I havent seen it on Gentle Doberman, but this ad popped up while I was on Facebook today....I'm sure it's the same place.

Hi Webby and DJs Dad.  I just opened GD and there it was. So sad! lot of pups available.  I think it's the same place as what you found, DJs Dad:   http://www.sureshotdobermans.com/?gclid=CMP289Sii7MCFQSf4AodvjUAlw

I constantly get    www.petlandnovi.com     in Novi Michigan advertising " no one has more puppies in Michigan than Petland Novi"  I wonder if they can somehow detect where you are physically in this world and the advertisements are geared to your location.  I am not too terribly far from Michigan.

I will be watching the ads more closely in the future
