Doberman Pinscher



The Doberman Pinscher (alternatively spelled Dobermann in many countries) or simply Doberman, is a medium-large breed of domestic dog originally developed around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, a tax collector from Germany.


The Doberman is descended from many different breeds, including the Great Dane, the Greyhound, the German Shorthaired Pointer, theRottweiler, and others (see History below). Except in the albino color, in which it is extremely difficult to see, each purebred Doberman has markings on the chest, paws/legs, muzzle, above the eyes, and underneath the tail. They are powerful in the hindquarters and can sometimes be top-heavy because of their deep chest (see Appearance below). Nevertheless, the Doberman is traditionally a very athletic breed and many excel in agility and obedience trials. The muzzle is long, and so affords the leverage for an extremely strong bite. The Doberman stands on its toes (not the pads) and is not usually heavy-footed. Ideally, they have an even and graceful gait. Traditionally, the ears are cropped and posted, and the tail is docked. However, in some countries it is illegal to do so.

Doberman Pinschers are well known as intelligent, alert, and tenaciously loyal companion and guard dogs. Personality varies a great deal between each Doberman, but if taken care of and trained properly they tend to be loving and devoted companions. The Doberman is driven, strong, and sometimes stubborn. Owning one requires commitment and care, but if trained well, they can be wonderful family dogs. Unlike some breeds (such as the German Shepherd), the Doberman is not always automatically eager to please, but with consistency they can be easy to train and will learn very quickly. As with all dogs, if properly trained, they can be excellent with children. They adapt quickly, though they pay attention to consistency and value attention.
