Hello everyone and greetings from Ohio.  I have just joined the community and thought this would be the right place for an introduction.  I live with my wife and two daughters, our handsome 10 year old male Maine Coon cat named Zeus, and our 13 year old male min pin named Remmington.  I have always wanted a red Doberman, and my wife and I have considered getting one several times, but each time we eventually selected another breed.  We chose different breeds even when what we wanted most was a Doberman because of having children we considered too small at the time or because we were living in military housing on base and had very limited yard space.  A little over two years ago my go everywhere sidekick Winchester (beagle and pug mix breed rescue, although the pug disappeared if he saw a rabbit!!!) passed on and we decided that when we were ready for another dog it would finally be the Doberman we had always wanted.  Last Fall I began to feel like I was ready for a new canine shadow, but I decided to wait until spring because I have never enjoyed house training a puppy in the snow.  I made some calls and visits and eventually found a breeder planning a spring litter whom I was comfortable with and able to establish good communication with.  I was promised by the breeder that if there was a red male in his spring litter that it would be mine.  The pups were born almost 4 weeks ago and I was informed that there was indeed a red male that we hoped for.  It only took one meeting for my heart to melt, I have found my new shadow. We had narrowed our names list down to a few, but as soon as I saw my pup his beautiful red coat struck me as being very “noble” so from our list we chose “Kahn”.  Kahn will be coming home with us in about 5 weeks’ time and we are very excited.  I know this breed can be a challenge, but I also believe that meeting that challenge will leave me with the dog I have always wanted.  I am really happy to have found this great wealth of Doberman knowledge!!   Hope to get to know many of you as Kahn and I grow together.  Expect lots of pictures as he grows, and for now I posted a couple pictures of our first meeting as an album.  Bye!!

Welcome! You have stepped into a place you may never want to leave. Once you fall in love with a Doberman you are hooked. Congrats on your new boy. I am sure he will be awesome. There will be some challenging times but with the right training they make absolutely awesome companions. I love the name by the way and at first I thought you were naming him Noble LOL. Kahn is a nice name.

I love red boys. My fav for a female is black and rust but if I ever had a male I would go for a red and rust.

First of all Thank you to everyone who offered me a warm welcome, Kahn and I appreciate it.  Secondly, I made the drive to go visit Kahn today, and took my Daughters with to give them and Kahn their first meeting.  The girls of course loved him, and after a few sniffs he warmed up to them as well.  They got to stay and play with Kahn for about an hour.  I will be bringing them to see Kahn once a week or so for the next month until we bring him home so that he will be familiar with all the family members.

I posted a few more pictures to Kahns album if anyone wants to see his growth over the last week.
