Potential purchasers should become educated about the genetic disorders that are most common in the Doberman. Responsible breeders will strenuously test their breeding stock.
Some tests, once performed, are considered good for the life of the dog. For the Doberman, these one time tests are hip/elbows, eyes, VWD, PDK4, DCM2, RD, and other genetic screenings. Other tests should be repeated annually or prior to each breeding. For the Doberman, the tests that should be repeated annually include complete blood panel to evaluate kidney, liver, and thyroid function, echo, and 24-hour Holter monitor (EKG).

OFA VWD - CARRIER - DP-VW888/24M-PI-CAR - 2015.02.20 - VetGen - Carriers do not exhibit signs of disease, but can pass the VWD mutation to their offspring. If bred to a VWD clear dog, Asher can only produce clear or carrier puppies.
DCM1 (PDK4) - Negative BY PARENTAGE (BOTH PARENTS ARE CLEAR). Verified by Embark.
DCM2 - Homozygous Positive - N.C. State University - 2016.09.24
The PDK4 (DCM1) and DCM2 mutations are two of several possible genetic causes of Dilated Cardiomyopathy in the Doberman Pinscher. The presence or absence of these mutations does not predict that Asher or Asher's offspring will or will not die from cardiomyopathy. They are a screening tool to be used in combination with regular Echocardiogram and Holter monitoring. Please visit this NCSU dilated cardiomyopathy webinar for the most up-to-date information about the use of PDK4 and DCM2 genetic screening for Dobermans.
BbDD - Carries for red. Does not carry dilution.
