Don't be intimidated if many people are applying for the same dog you want. Just try~ All it takes is a good idea and whatever time it takes you to type =3 I may be picking out a few people for reserves for the next litter.
I got soooo tired of the same shade of Isabella. So many shades out there, so few you see on the capos, and many of them turn out looking practically blue (the dilute color)… I went with the Isabella I've seen on a couple of Doberman, wonderful color, kind of yellow but, since they're smooth and so, so glossy, it comes out looking bronze.
Anyways, presenting my first litter~ I've been just collecting dogs for months. You're going to hate me, though, because they still won't be available for another few weeks. No bricks.
Anywhozitt, what I'm doing right now is taking applications as I show the parents. Also, waiting for the license image~
The stuff that always comes first… Give me credit for the design. I reserve the right to decline an application. You have  three days to send the points after you are awarded the dog. You must register the dog with the #CCDIR within a month and a half of purchasing the dog. IT MUST BE REGISTERED WITH ART MADE BY YOU, preferably unique, not using pre-made lineart. Either way, don't use the litter art (don't copy/eyeball/imitate the litter art)! I don't want to see it in your gallery. If the dog is abandoned/neglected, it will be reclaimed. You get a refund, but I won't reconsider you for adoption, be aware. The genotypes will be corrected when they're given. The color and white spotting is correct, but the base color (dominant black and recessive red) likely won't apply. When it gets fixed, I'll just note everyone. You choose the gender. Don't change the design, I've been working on them for weeks. The points may be lightened on a picture-to-picture basis if they're insufficiently noticeable. You don't get to un-crop or un-dock the dog. The ears are naturally pricked. The tails that are bob are natural. (The exception is #2, which is mine and has had a service dock.) Add "Broken Paradise" to the end of your form so that I know you've read the rules. To apply for a dog, read the rules that apply and fill in the appropriate form. You may give one application for multiple dogs (list in order of preference, please), or you may give multiple applications for various dogs). No need to rush, I'm picking the homes on December 14th. You only get one pup. Exception is if there are some left un-homed after the initial homing, then I may go through multiple-dog applications and will be taking new ones for another week. If you no longer want the dog, sell (same price) or give it back. You may sell (lower than purchase price) or give it forward with my exclusive permission (must be requested). The new owner must also adhere to the terms stated here: They must register the dog themselves (their own art) and have the profile in the Artist's Comment and such and etc… 5 for newbies, kennel or role-play.
For Showing / Working Kennels 15 Your kennel must be active. The dog's registry name must have "FRiv's" as the prefix. The dog should have a basic profile in the Artist's Comment. The whole litter is of the classic Doberman-type, the one on the standard, not sighthound-type. Their faces shouldn't be too fine, their legs aren't thin, they have a moderate tuck, are very muscular, and have lustrous coats (hence the bronze Isabellas). Some may have a deeper chest and/or slightly higher tuck. If the dog will be working in an environment with doors, wheels, bikes, wheelchairs, children (easy to knock over and hurt) and other hazards, they may have their tails docked to partial-length. You might also want to remove the dewclaws if they're likely to get caught in ground foliage or carpet or something. Point is, feel free to alter the pups as their job requires. These are not pets, they're working dogs. From schutzhund to search-and-rescue, hunt, tracking… Keep this in mind when you choose a discipline and are writing up litter profiles. Dog must be open for breeding, not spayed/neutered. But don't over-breed! Keep record of the bloodline. Link the parents in the dog's profile. Link to the dog's profile on each of their litters. Make sure that kennels that claim their pups do the same! Descendants that disappear into RP are unrelated. Descendants of these will remain unrelated, even if they find their way back into the kennel community. Dogs are expected to be shown and/or drawn in their working environment. Fill out this form: Number(s): Registry Name: FRiv's [HERE] Call Name: [HERE] Breed: Capo Cane d'Italia Gender: [You choose! - HERE] Age: [That you will begin them. - HERE] Kennel: [Include a link, preferably to the kennel ethics and guidelines. - HERE] Discipline/Occupation: [HERE] Docked? [Service dock, not lopping off the whole tail. Long tails only; bob tails don't naturally grow extensions. - HERE] Breeding? Yes
For Breeding Kennels 25 Your kennel must be active. The dog's registry name must have "FRiv's" as the prefix. The dog should have a basic profile in the Artist's Comment. The whole litter is of the classic Doberman-type, the one on the standard, not sighthound-type. Their faces shouldn't be too fine, their legs aren't thin, they have a moderate tuck, are very muscular, and have lustrous coats (hence the bronze Isabellas). Some may have a deeper chest and/or slightly higher tuck. These are not pets, they're working dogs. From schutzhund to search-and-rescue, hunt, tracking… Keep this in mind when writing up litter profiles. Dog must be open for breeding, not spayed/neutered. But don't over-breed! Keep record of the bloodline. Link the parents in the dog's profile. Link to the dog's profile on each of their litters. Make sure that kennels that claim their pups do the same!

Yes
For Role-Play 25 The dog should have a character sheet and profile submitted within two weeks of registration. Just want proof that they're meant for RP. You don't have to start RPing them immediately. Dogs may be changed to a sighthound-type, since it doesn't really depend on my dogs, since they will be unrelated. You get to change it's personality, should you wish. Descendants that disappear into RP are unrelated. Descendants of these will remain unrelated, even if they find their way back into the kennel community. The dog is completely unrelated to the parents. Unless coordinated by the players, the role-play dogs of this litter will also not be related to each other. You are expected to actually role-play the dog. Fill out this form: Number(s): Name: [HERE] Breed: Capo Cane d'Italia Gender: [You choose! - HERE] Age: [That you will begin them. - HERE] Role Play / Pack: [HERE] Personality: [HERE] Story: [Preferably brief. - HERE] Docked? [Any dock, since FRiv wouldn't have set the rules. - HERE] Change to sighthound? Yes / No Breeding? Yes / No

01 - belongs to Color: Extreme Piebald Platinum (aka; Silver/Ivory) Coat: Light Feathering Ears / Tail: Prick, Long Personality: 1) Determined. Always hell-bent on taking apart whatever it can get it's teeth into. The only thing that would take this one away from the self-assigned task is a moving object, which will be pursued until caught. If the object disappears, it will be sought out until found. Been known to remember the scent of a lost object for days after, even when the humans seem to have forgotten, bringing in whatever it was when rediscovered.
02 - belongs to Color: Extreme Piebald Isabella (Bronze, like an Isabella Doberman) Coat: Heavy Feathering Ears / Tail: Prick, Long - Dock (Service Dock) Personality: 1) Protective and alert. More laid-back then it's siblings. This pup is very much like a sighthounds. Indoors, he's a couch-potato, but outside, he's a blur. On it's off time, this pup is mostly just tailing it's trainer, curling up in the corner closest to the door, waiting for the next activity that involves him. At night, though, he's always heard padding through the halls, investigating any excessive movement or sounds.
03 - belongs to Color: Light Gold Coat: Light Feathering Ears / Tail: Prick, Bob Personality: 1) Intelligent, but imposing. Is eager and willing to please, craves attention, but there's the issue that ignoring it is not a deterrent. Will keep insisting until kenneled or will begin to bother the closest other human. Takes no time to learn a new trick, issue is getting the pup to stay in a position long enough to reward it. Once calmed down, it's attentive enough to get the gist of the trick in under an hour (Not that practice isn't needed; spoken commands should be reviewed often to pick up the cue.)
04 - belongs to Color: Light Gold (Deep) Coat: Heavy Feathering Ears / Tail: Prick, Long Personality: 1) Curious, but cautious. This pup is always getting itself into tight spaces where you aren't able to find it, but has learned to keep away (keep its teeth out of) from the more dangerous areas. A mix of positive and negative conditioning works, but without the use of physical force is best. A strong "No!" is sufficient to deter it from doing anything undesirable the first time, although only if caught the first time. Rewards such as toys and treats teach it which are the positive experiences, although they serve more as markers than rewards. Not afraid of loud noises, fast-moving objects, large objects, or anything the like.
05 - belongs to Color: Cream Coat: Heavy Feathering Ears / Tail: Prick, Long + Curl Personality: Protective, but composed… and kind of velcro. Learned the hard way to not cross paws with human feet or, indeed, other dogs' paws. But once they stop moving, they're just something to lay it's head on. Isn't too imposing. You can be at the dinner table with an oversized steak and it won't raise its head to beg, but you'll have to push the pup out from under there to get out. When the door opens, always the first one out. Not out of disrespect, but seems to take it upon itself to scout out the area before letting the humans loose.
06 - belongs to Color: White Spotting Isabella (Bronze) Coat: Smooth Ears / Tail: Prick, Long Personality: Inherited the friendly disposition of the sire. Not that it's got any qualms with sinking it's teeth into somebody, but takes the situation more as a game. Not easily swayed by shouts of distress and not deterred by blows. Makes a decent schutzhund sport dog, but not really for work. Probably wouldn't be able to tell a friend from stranger.
07 - belongs to Color: Isabella (Bronze), Grizzle-style Points Coat: Smooth Ears / Tail: Prick, Long Personality: Inherited the mother's stubborn nature. Sure to carry out whatever job is given without complaint and without fail. Fences will not stop this pup. She's been known to push and squeeze under chain-link, clamber over wood boards, and we suspect she won't have any problems jumping them once full grown. Not afraid of heights, holes or water.
08 - belongs to Color: Isabella, Grizzle-style Points Coat: Smooth Ears / Tail: Prick, Bob + Curl + Held High Personality: Energetic and playful. Always looking for a new game, and sometimes stealing them away from other dogs. Doesn't get along too well with them because it's always seen as a thief, and just doesn't learn because it's never caught. Quick, agile and without fear of jumping in or through anything to play keep-away. A real handful, even when it's all tuckered out and panting, coming at it will just send it flying off somewhere else.
09 - belongs to (see here for entries!) Color: White Irish Collared Platinum and Brown (aka; Liver/Chocolate) Two Tone Reversal Coat: Heavy Feathering Ears / Tail: Prick, Long + Curl + Held High Personality: Elegant in both appearance and style. Loyal, loving, ambitious, observant and sly. This one's fully dedicated to her humans, absolute cuddle-bug, but that's not to say she isn't a working dog. When given a task, she will carry it out without hesitation, no complaints. She is tireless. But when off the job, she's an opportunistic little fox. She'll use her charm to mooch off whatever you have that she wants; unless it's not guarded, then she'll just sneak it. *Her nose is still Isabella. The chocolate points color is because of the two-tone and is rather independent of… everything.
10 - Color: White Irish Collared Isabella (Blue) Coat: Heavy Feathering Ears / Tail: Prick, Bob Personality: Focused, driven and obedient. This pup pretty much just waits around to be commanded. Call it's name and it's dropped whatever it had and comes before you've gotten to the last syllable. Of course, it also responds to many of the other dogs' names. Always eager to work, but well content to trot after its person until sent away on a job.
11 - belongs to Color: Piebald Isabella (Blue) and Light Gold Two Tone Coat: Smooth Ears / Tail: Prick, Bob Personality: Sweet, cheerful, and actually a bit mouthy. This is a dog that wags with her whole body. She's a handful, but a fun one. Her energy seems to be contagious to people… and a bane on other dogs. It isn't always like this, though. There are days when she's nowhere to be found, having stayed curled up in bed, recovering her energy for the next seven days of continuous movement.
12 - belongs to Color: White Spotting Gold (Deep) Coat: Light Feathering Ears / Tail: Prick, Bob Personality: Frenetic, but mellow… When left unattended, is always sniffing around, always on the move. Needs to investigate everything. However, once called (or caught), is calm; attention fully on the human. Frequent training and exercise is recommended. This is a dog that needs to have a job.
Always one gene from one parent, a gene from the other, never both of the same parent. Try Punnet's Squares, although I do it freehand. Generators can help you if you assign a number to each square, but I quit on that real fast. This is what I use, but it is in need of tweaking. Still, even if it were simplified, it should give similar results.
well yeah I don't really know in wich category I am placeable xD I just started with my kennel part and it's gonna be a alternative show kennel, but I'm still setting up x3 but I already got experience with my stable part and I've done competitions with my horses, but that doesn't count I guess xD but I love 9 ;o
In that case I think I fit in that description haha x3 I love doing competitions :3 but how many competitions is the minimum? because I'm still starting and I don't do reallt much competitions yet, I think about 1 competition a month, and every month a different dog, but it's gonna be more, I'm still practising on my dogs haha xd but if I may, I'd love to buy her, but If I mayn't then it ain't a problem ofcourse ;$
allright :3 so if I really understand it; I go search for a competition and enter with her, I add all her information in the competition picture, and you judge it? (sorry I'm dutch and my english is reaaaaly crappy sometimes ;$ and I get things wrong really often so uhm... wel yeah that sorry ;$)
