Melrae Dobermans was founded in 2010 with the purchase of SOOKIE - CH ShoMe's Queen of Diamonds. I purchased her as my 1st show doberman, new to showing but not dobermans, I wanted a doberman that I would be able to handle myself. I waited for a male from Aquarius Dobermans and that didn't pan out, waited again for another breeding that didn't take, that's when Jim Briley put me in contact with Tami Lane of ShoMe Dobermans. I talked with Tami, chatted about my big dreams of showing and she took a gamble on a newbie with me and sold me her pick bitch that she was planning on keeping. Thus beginning the journey we are on now with Melrae Dobermans and also the beginning of a wonderful friendship, combined with a mentor and co-breeder I have in Tami Lane.
In the 12 years since this journey began we have bred several AKC Grand Champions, AKC Champions, CKC Champions, UKC Champions and more to come. Several of our dogs have working titles as well (BCAT, FCAT, FDC, BH, NA, NAJ, NAF, OF, RA, RATI, RATN, RATO, RN, ROM, DS, DJ, DN, TKN,TKI, CGC, CGCA, CD, CA, CAA) and used as therapy dogs and juniors show dogs.
ALL dobermans are sold on a contract, those placed in guardian homes are owned by Melrae Dobermans and future breeding rights are exclusive to Melrae Dobermans.
**Our Dobermans are all sold with CROPPED ears, no exceptions. **
