-- This page last update August 2, 2014 --
Sable had her 3rd and final litter on July 27, 2014. There are 5 pups - all sold with 1 decision pending. Slight possibility red female will be available.
Update on Ella: Her timing was yet again bad for us. We were out of town when she was ready for male. Expect her 2nd and final litter this winter. We are determined to make that breeding reality, so look for that if you missed out on Sable's and want one direct from the Garretts.
The Watsons' will have another litter available soon. Shoot a text to: 940-300-8429 if you want priority on this upcoming litter.
Garretts Dobermans focuses on raising Dobermans in a loving family environment. Pups brought up in a family setting from day 1 make better pets, rather family members. Our primary concern is raising pups who have received plenty of love, ready to be a solid part of your family.
There are two breeders associated with Garretts' Dobermans:
(1) The Garretts, who own females Sable and Ella, and their three children. NOTE: Debbie Reugen owns Elvis (info on sires' page), current sire used by the Garretts.
(2) The Watsons, who own Violet (Sable's daughter) and Zeus (new sire) and their three older chilren.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: When are puppies released to go into homes? A: When the pups are 7 to 8 weeks old, placement of the pups begins. If owners wish to pick up their pup from the litter's home site, they may directly pick the pup up at 7 weeks of age. For pups needing to be shipped, this will be done at 8 weeks old.
Q: When may I first visit the pups? A: We allow potential owners to visit the pups at anytime they wish after 2 weeks of age asking that you do not bring another dog to meet the pup until 7 weeks old.

The Garretts had to say good-bye to their beloved friend, Aggie, in July 2010. Aggie was our first Doberman. She taught us what a wonderful breed Dobermans are and is the reason for this site. From Aggie's final litter before retiring to pet status, we kept Scarlett, affectionately nicknamed "Smiley". Sadly, Scarlett recently passed away (Nov. 2013). Our third Doberman, Sable, was out of Scarlett's last litter, born in January of 2009. Additionally, we obtained a blue/rust female from Ellie/Pyro's litter born July 26, 2009 -- Ella (Scarlett's granddaughter).
We encourage you to spend some time on this site. More specifically, spend time reading letters sent in from owners of pups from our previous litters. The temperaments of our Dobermans are exceptional. We spend a lot of time handling them as pups and they get lot of exposure to children.
If you have questions that are not answered on this site or simply want to contact us personally, you can
Our beloved and missed girls, Aggie (black/rust) and Scarlett (red/rust; Aggie's daughter) - Aggie got us hooked on Dobes!
The site and our breeding practices all began with Aggie. Her wonderful nature with our children inspired us to educate people on Dobermans as well as produce awesome four legged family members. We hope you learn from the site and what owners share within it.

Look at these Girls! Faith and Violet in March. I wanted to again express how grateful we are to you for raising such a true to standard breed of dog. Sounds silly but you actually have changed my life. I never thought I would own a dog like this .
Well, please put us on a waiting list for your next litter. We would never consider going anywhere else. Our family does not overlook all the little extras you do with your pups to make them so special. Thanks! Tara " -- sent April 12, 2006

Buyers BEWARE: Do NOT ATTEMPT to buy pups from the classified ad site: www.OLX.com
I was alerted to search for misuse of my photos after someone reported driving several hours to pick up an older Doberman (sold using photos of my site) only to find out there was no Doberman. I have tried asking OLX to remove ads falsely using my photos but they claim without a watermark, they cannot. COPYRIGHTS protect me!
OLX response (which I have received several times from them on various ads I requested be removed) is an alarming reason not to remove ads. Sites like YouTube (which removed two pictures of mine used by someone else) are reputable and follow copyright rules. I would not trust any seller off OLX's site! There are plenty of reputable sites to search: NextDayPets.com, PuppyFind.com, QualityDog.com (to name a few).
From my recent experience with trying to get ads removed using my photos to sell pups, I would recommend staying away from ALL classified sites not specifically focused on selling dogs. It is now obvious to me that OLX is simply interested in having ad listings (free or not) and does not care if the advertiser is misrepresenting. Last bit of advice, contact the advertising company/site and ask how they protect you, the buyer...how can you rest assured the advertiser actually owns the dog(s)/pup(s) displayed in the ad.
A search box is displayed that has a Camera icon. Click on the camera icon. You are then given the option to paste the url of the photo in question OR upload a photo; then click "Search By Image". The search will listed any site using that photo. Very handy tool Google has made available. I have found several pics owned by me via Google's Image Search. In fact, the most abused/misused pic I own is the one above of Aggie and Scarlett. Beware!
