Q:

Are 100 lbs doberman males considered badly breeded "warlock" dobermans?

Hi guys, I've been doing some research on Doberman breeds and I stumbled upon the term "warlock" Dobermans. From what I understand, these are Dobermans that have been intentionally bred to be larger and have more muscular bodies, which can sometimes result in health problems. I came across a 100 lbs Doberman male and I was wondering if this falls under the category of a "warlock" Doberman. I'm concerned about potential health issues as well as the overall well-being of the dog. Can anyone shed some light on this topic and provide me with some insight? Thank you.

Hello everyone, I have owned two Dobermans in the past, both of which were bred to be within the standard size range for the breed. While I was always enamored with the idea of having a larger, more muscular Doberman, I ultimately opted to go with the standard size for health and temperament reasons.

Both of my dogs lived long, healthy lives and never had any major health issues related to their size. They were both athletic and active, able to run and play without any breathing or joint problems. They also had the sweet, affectionate temperament that is characteristic of the Doberman breed.

Though I can't speak from personal experience on owning a "warlock" Doberman, I do caution those who are considering it to be aware of the potential health risks. While a larger, more muscular dog might look impressive, it could come at a great cost to the animal's health and well-being.

Ultimately, choosing a dog based on appearance alone is not a wise decision. The most important factors should be health, temperament, and finding a dog that fits well with your lifestyle and personality.

Hey, I have also been interested in Doberman breeds and their potential health issues. I have come across quite a few "warlock" Dobermans, especially since they tend to be larger and more muscular. However, I've also read that this breed of Dobermans can be at a higher risk for hip dysplasia and other joint issues. One important aspect is to consider the breeding quality and the health of the parents of such dogs. My friend had adopted a warlock Doberman that had hip dysplasia due to poor breeding practices, resulting in significant pain for the dog. So, while the size of a Doberman is alluring, it's important to ensure they are bred in a healthy way to avoid issues down the line.

Hey there, I can share my personal experience with you. My neighbor has a Doberman and he was considered a "warlock" Doberman by the breeder. He weighs 105 lbs and is a male. While he is quite large and muscular, he doesn't seem to have any health issues that we know of. However, I do know that his breeder was known for breeding larger Dobermans, so I'm not sure if that played a role in his good health. I think it's important to do your research on the breeder and ask them questions about their breeding process to ensure that the dogs are being bred responsibly and with the dog's health in mind. Hopefully, this helps!

Hello everyone, I had a "warlock" Doberman that weighed around 110 lbs and I can attest that his size played a large role in his health issues. He had trouble breathing and would often get winded after even light exercise.

Additionally, he had joint problems that made it difficult for him to get around easily. These issues were exacerbated by his size, as carrying around that much weight was undoubtedly hard on his body.

When I first got him, I was drawn in by his impressive size and muscular build, but I quickly learned that it came at a cost to his health. Though I loved him dearly, I could see that his quality of life was diminished due to his health issues.

If I could do it all over again, I would prioritize health over size when choosing a Doberman. While it's tempting to want a dog that looks impressive, it's not worth risking their happiness and well-being.

Hey everyone, I used to have a Doberman that weighed around 110 lbs and he was definitely a "warlock" Doberman. He was bred to be significantly larger than the average Doberman, typically weighing 80-90 lbs. While I loved my dog dearly, I have to admit that he had a lot of health problems that were directly attributed to his size.

He had trouble breathing, especially when exercising, and he had joint issues that resulted in him being less active as he got older. His size also made it difficult for him to fit in the back of our car comfortably, which made traveling with him a bit of a hassle.

In retrospect, I wish I had done more research into the breeder that we got him from and had better understood the potential health risks associated with "warlock" Dobermans. While he was a great companion, his health issues caused a lot of stress and worry for us.

If you are considering getting a larger Doberman, I would strongly advise you to do your research and be aware of the potential health problems that can arise. It's important to prioritize the health and well-being of the dog above all else.

Hi there! I don't have personal experience with "warlock" Dobermans, but I do have a friend who has a regular-sized Doberman. Her dog has had joint issues since he was young, but they were able to manage it with medication and regular exercise. From what I have read, the larger the Doberman, the higher the risk of joint issues. So, while a 100 lbs Doberman male may not necessarily be a "warlock" Doberman, there still might be a potential issue concerning their joints. Regular check-ups with a vet and providing them with a healthy diet and exercise routine can help prevent or manage potential joint issues. Ultimately, as potential Doberman owners, we should be responsible and choose a reputable breeder that breeds dogs with care and attention to their health.

Hi everyone, I've owned several Dobermans over the years, including one "warlock" Doberman male that weighed around 105 lbs. While he was a big, powerful dog, he did have some health issues that were likely related to his size.

Like some of the other users on this thread have mentioned, my Doberman had trouble with breathing when he was exercising, especially when it was hot and humid outside. Additionally, he had some joint problems that made it difficult for him to move around as easily as he did when he was younger.

Despite these issues, he was a very loving and loyal dog and was great with both me and my family. Looking back, though, I do wish I had been more cautious about choosing a breeder that prioritized health over size.

In summary, I think that "warlock" Dobermans can potentially be great dogs, but it's important to do your research before getting one and make sure you can provide the necessary care to keep them healthy and happy.

Hi there! I used to have a Doberman that weighed around 100 lbs and I can tell you that he was definitely not a "warlock" Doberman. While he was muscular and had a large build, he was not bred to be that way. He was simply a product of good genetics and a healthy lifestyle. In fact, his veterinarian always commented on how healthy he was and how great his muscle tone was for his age.

That being said, I've also seen Dobermans that were clearly bred to be larger and had many health problems as a result. Some of these dogs had joint issues, breathing problems, and even heart problems. It's important to do your research when looking for a Doberman breeder and make sure that they prioritize the health and well-being of their dogs over breeding for size or appearance.

So, in short, a 100 lbs Doberman male can be a healthy dog as long as they were not intentionally bred to be that way. It's crucial to do your homework before choosing a breeder and to prioritize the health and happiness of the dog.

Hello everyone, I don't personally have a Doberman, but my friend does, and he's a "warlock" Doberman that weighs well over 100 lbs. From what I've seen of him, he's a very sweet dog, but he definitely has some health issues as a result of his size.

He has trouble breathing and he can't run as fast or as far as a typical Doberman. He also has joint problems that make it difficult for him to move around as easily, and he requires a special diet to maintain his weight.

That being said, my friend is very committed to taking care of him and is always making sure he has the best care possible. She did a lot of research before getting him and chose a breeder that prioritized the health and well-being of their dogs over size.

So, while I've seen the negative effects that can come with owning a "warlock" Doberman, I do think that it's possible to have a healthy and happy dog of that size if you do your research and prioritize their health. It's important to know the potential risks and make sure you can provide the necessary care before getting a larger Doberman.
