Gorgeous boy, I'm so sorry for your loss. I assume you also own/have owned poodles since you're here; can I ask how you think Dobies' temperaments are different from poodles'?
This is my Rocco who passed in October. Although the build may be similar, it is definitely not the same.

Ah yeah I definitely see your point. It also occurs to me that phantom poodles tend to have a more apricot colored marking on black/red, whereas Dobies tend toward deep red/brown on black/red.
