About myself 

I have always had a love for dogs as my Father and Grandfather raised dogs

However I took a liking for the Breed Doberman Pinscher

My First Doberman was a female called  Sheba  she was bought from a Breeder near Chesley, Ontario from Breeders Robert and Glenis Johnson which had a couple of litters and retired .

Sire of (Sheba) Hafenstadt’s C  for Candace was KauKauns’s Ruff n Reddi a large Black Male Very Square and Solid  He was Owned and Bred  By Mrs  Bee England of Crediton, Ontario 

When She was 2 yrs of age I had Bred her and her first of 4 litters was 11 pups  from her 3rd litter I kept a Black Female called  Sasha and then my Breeding started , I have always Bred the Doberman to maintain a Square body, and always focusing on the Beautiful  Temperament that Sheba had as Brains, Beauty and  Health of the Doberman was so important.  As some Bloodlines have  Cardio not as much back in the 70’s as they do today my Bloodlines will often  reach 11-14 yrs of age  I remember one dog reaching 16.

Over the Years I have continued to Breed and started to show Dobermans at First  Joe and Janet Lobb Handled for me as well as  Brian Casey . Then one day I just took on the challenge to go in the ring and on a small scale continued to show my Dobermans .

With many small wins over the years I became very interested in dog showing , and decided to travel to shows around Ontario and some other provinces of  Canada .

In 1986 my Doberman Jackson  won “ Award of Merit “ he was 10 months of age  Quoted to me by  Pat  Blenkley that Jackson was the First puppy in the History of the Doberman to receive that Award of Merit

However as years went by I kept a Very strong focus on Breeding for Longevity to maintain a strong Heart as Dobermans carry that Genetic gene , in the 80’s I started to have my Dobermans Hearts checked By  Dr. Mike O’Grady at the Guelph Vet College.

Mike O’Grady always loved my Dobermans for their Temperaments and that I had very Strong Hearts in my dogs , as much as any Breeder can try to be careful on any Health testing there is always that slim chance that anything can happen , as I came from a Family of Dog  Breeding I learned at a young age that Genetic‘s can come out as far back as 7 Generations.

My Father Albert James  McCartney that raised the Collie Type dog  once told me if you like the dog that you may think that you would Love to Breed to check out his Parents  and Grand Parents and check out Temperaments Health and Pedigree’s as they will play a Big Roll on the Genetic in the off spring as to the puppies from the litter that you expect to get.

Happy, Healthy Bloodlines

Additional Information

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.

Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.

Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.

Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.

Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
