|dogfaeries||Yes, fawns and blues are certainly prone to alopecia. I personally would stay away from the dilute colors. Blue is a dilute of black, and fawn (or Isabella) is a dilute of red. And "whites" are another thing entirely, and are not white, but are albinos or partial albinos. Phototropic, prone to skin cancer and bad temperaments, they are a mess.|

I just picked the above link at random, but there's a lot of information about Dobes of certain colors being affected by this condition.

Ah, those red dobergirls are a lot of fun! I miss mine.

maybe a new dog
I wanted a red male Doberman or a black an tan female right. I might end up with a red female Doberman pup, not exact what I wanted but if it is meant to be then I might do it .
