    Call Telmex directly and ask them your question.  If you need English, ask for it and, be patient, they will eventually come on the line.   800 123 2222

    Okay thank you, I am actually posting for a friend, will inform of such.

    Sorry bezerk, but I'm up North hiding from the Coronavirus. If I were you, I might drop by the nearest Telmex office and check. Or hope for a more informative post than mine :)

    When I got my line in 1997, they told me that there was a 10 months wait, but for a special fee, I could have it in a week. I later learned that this special fee I paid was a bribe :) . Was I mad. That was before I understood how things worked lakeside in the 90s.

    johanson..yes the Telmex office is indeed closed. I think we have been here roughly same amount of time, 23 years ago I had to wait more or less 6 months for a phone line and mucho dinero.  I must have gotten taken as well,  naive.  LOL. Everything has a fee attached we now know.  I maybe should have gone north and hid as well.  :)

  2. Thank you, those who did respond.  I was just trying to get some opinions as stated.  Everyone has differing opinions and I wanted such.

    Close to home is NOT a good judgment factor. Who made you feel confident in their ability, professional approach, and knowledge?  Good bedside manner does not always equate to actual ability when it counts. Some are fine for everyday problems, but not so much for trickier situations. You should talk to people you know personally, and get some reactions from them rather than on this open forum where prejudices and other things could lead to poor information.  And any good vet will provide you with SOME means of emergency after-hours contact. If they will not, take them off your list!

    I agree but I have already heard the personal friends opinions. I think everyone has prejudices and such that influence their opinions which is fine. Bedside manner means very little to me, Competence, ability to provide care at reasonable cost and obviously an ER contact. 

    Money grabs are not what I want, I want good care.  Knowledge of large breed dogs. Thanks.  



  3. I was not aware a new shelter opened I know there is Doggie guard or Doggie Workers facility that does activiites, day care and overnight care. Looks interesting. 

    Do you know the name of the new shelter?

    Have you tried the new shelter that just opened in West Ajijic?  Sorry I don't have contact info, maybe someone on this site can provide that 

    I would put your request on FB for more attention, this site seems to get much less exposure.

    Dobermans here don’t seem to enjoy the popularity they do in the States.  American preferred is somewhat ambiguous.    If your referring to style they, the Doberman, are pretty much the same all over north and south America.

    You can go to the FCM website (Mexican Kennel Club) and click on eventos.  To my knowledge most of the shows have been cancelled.   But a dog show is the best place to go to see what’s available in terms of a breeder.

    I would be very surprised if a reputable breeder would sell you both a male and a female as the implication that you want to breed them is something a good breeder would avoid.

    That is what I thought of also but did not want to say it

    Yes. It's a bizarre and vile concept to cut pieces off of humans or animals because of some "tradition", the reasons for which may have been thought warranted at some time in history but have no validity today. 


    Incredible, people who are unable to read and comprehend a question and reply to the question without answering a thing.  Absolutely amazing. 

    Bizarre and vile no doubt to  cut human or animal parts as goodness forbid many times there are health reasons.  Severe ear infections from bacteria and fungi in Dobermans with floppy ears.  Men, of elderly persuasion in facilities and being taken care of and just a small mindless error of not retracting foreskin to original position and Bam, death, or surgery at a ripe old age. 

    The validity of many things remains today if people listen to health/medical  reasons in many cases. 

    In reality I care less that is what I am looking for so or was so very unhelpful responses. 

    There are might I add the American Doberman and the European Doberman, both with different characteristics, thus they are not the same all over North America.   Dobermans are not as popular here in these parts of Mexico due to cost one and demand in upper class society due to being guard dogs and pit bulls seem to be a preferred dog here but at a more reasonable price.  Dobermans are highly intelligent thinkers, so very smart and many times require a different scope of action than say a Shepherd also incredibly smart dogs but practical as herders, guard or even hunting.  

    Reputable breeder will many times sell you a male and female if you are willing to sign a waiver of breeding or such.  Ridiculous statement to say a breeder will not sell a male and female dog to an owner.  Has nothing to do with reputation just money.  Very simple round about as well so have a friend buy the other dog for you, serious.

    I am more than happy to have a less popular breed dog, just as have found likely not usually very helpful to get answers here.  Yikes.  Cannot wait to see responses on my next two questions. 

  5. Withing a short period of time, I might be interested in one maybe two Dobermans. A female for sure and possibly a male as well. Anyone know any breeders in area or in Guadalajara. It would need tail already cropped, if ears were done or started even better, not too young 8 weeks or older.  American Doberman preferred. 

    Any leads would be helpful, please do not share with me your opinions of just adopt a stray dog.  I have done rescues and adoption, I am on my last dogs and want Dobermans.

    How quickly happiness turn into disaster.......reliable, efficient roof repair person recommendations.....I guess that is the reason we keep have the same problem every year, they can fix it but not cure it ...that guy is hard to find good luck

    Okay thanks no clue what this means, but it has been patched hopefully we can make it til next year and then once again do over roof, the sun is far more destructive then cold or even snow!

    It clearly works for those who know how to use it. Be patient, take a deep breath, and try the APP again. Remember, one mis-keyed or made up number and they won't accept your registration. And, if you don't know a word like "lada" take a moment and look it up for gosh sakes. 

    Sweet! Feel better for gosh sakes!!

    I thought that is what it was but since it did not work and never did work, I thought I must have it wrong. The site nor the app. are working for me as of this month for the site and the app well I cannot even register.

    I paid it much more easily at Oxxo. I use to pay online ( not the app) with an Amex US card, just saying. 

    I was unable to use undostres either. Unable to register..must be something to do with my cell or internet.
