We are Tommy and Melinda Moyer, residing in Montpelier, VA along with our six Dobermans.
Melinda acquired her first Doberman in 1983 and Tommy was introduced to this wonderful breed in 2006. Together we are striving to improve this amazing breed and are dedicated to breeding for health, temperament and conformation. Our dogs are not housed in kennels, they live among us as members of our family.
BellaCane (meaning beautiful dog in Italian) was derived from our foundation bitch,
MBIS MBISS GCHP CH Tiburon Ariel Bella Dona. Bella retired from the show ring as
AKC’s #1 Doberman in the country for 2013.
She was also the DPCA’s #1 Doberman for the 2013-2014 year.
Bella had a litter in 2015 with multiple finished Champions and Grand Champions,
including Abira whom we kept from this litter and resides in our home.
Abira began her Campaign with her handler, Cindy Lane Smith in January 2018, showing around the country and following in her Dam and Sire’s footsteps. She quickly moved up the ladder and is now ranked #1 in Doberman All-Breed Points - We couldn’t be more thrilled with her success!
Puppies bred by BellaCane are out of our bitches that have been completely health tested including: Echocardiogram, 24 hr Holter, Cardio PDK4 DCM1 and DCM2 Tests, vWD, Thyroid panel,
OFA Hips and Eye Certified, and complete blood panels.
The males chosen also have been thru the same health testing.
Prior to the puppies being placed in homes, between 10-12 weeks of age, they will be immunized, cropped and docked. Right before puppies are cropped, we work on separating and crate training them so it makes it easier once cropping is done for them to sleep alone. They also have individual runs which are side by side so they can run and play along the runs. They have a large play area inside and outside where they have numerous surfaces and objects to play with and on. When you take your new puppy home, you will find the puppy will be well socialized and adjusted.

and those that have been and are currently active in the show rings.
