Shelby is on track for her BH and IPO 1 in 2017. She is a super all around girl with a nice medium drive. She's a dream to work with and an amazing companion. She is the future of Dobermans by Design.

“Lexus,” mother of Sophia, would have been the perfect working dog. She is still with us at the age of 10, and still loves to play tug, Frisbee, and patrol the yard with the younger dogs. 


Mercedes “Sophia” Altobello James 

OFA Hips: Good, OFA Elbows: Normal 

Thyroid: Clear

ECHO: Clear 2016

Black Dominant 

Sophia is as pretty as they come and is the foundation of my program. She exhibits a wonderful disposition and would have excelled in the show ring or agility. She is an “outcross” of European lines and American show lines, thus, she has a very low COI%. 


The Rescues:

Missy, boxer/pointer, I lost in November 2015 to heart cancer. She was my "shot gun rider" as she lived all over the country with me, the short 8 years I had her.

 "The Boom Dog" still resides at my home. He came to me at the age of 2 from a high kill shelter in WV. Someone didn't know what they had! This goofball is an amazing soul and I am lucky to call him mine. He loves being the only boy of the group! Just ask him!
