About our Puppies....
LeGard's has been commited to breeding for the TOTAL Doberman, and to produce flashy future stars for the ring, work, sport, or home, and bred for superior health, temperament,character,intellignece,conformation, and the ultimate in personality Plus! Our Puppie's are from Top Champion / Working Titled Parent'(s) , We do not just breed our Girls to Titled Sires, We also Title our Girls ! Our Puppie's are raised in the home, underfoot. We begin Temperament testing from day one to ensure you with the proper selection to match your requests.
We select your puppy according to your "special requests" and living arrangements, your desires, and future plans for which you intend to do with your LeGard Doberman, each puppy has a Unique personality, and we take this into consideration with your requests.

Our Puppies are usualy ready for shipment or adoption between the ages of 8- 12 weeks old, unless, weather does not permit shipment..
Deposits are highly recommended due to the "Limited litters" and referals that we have, we often have a waiting list, so please let us know if you plan to place a deposit.
Puppies are selected according to your personal requests, in the order that deposits are recieved, so an earlier deposit can make a better selection having more puppies to "select from".
We do not permit potential clients, to "Personaly Hand Select" their puppy, We feel that no one knows the puppies in each litter better than the breeder who has been with them from day one, as puppies change from day to day, it is not a fair "grading" to select a puppy from a litter in which they have never seen before that day, and have then only seen for at most a "few hours". Our puppies are selected per our clients individule requests, of what they expect there puppy to mirror at maturity.
