The Dobermann Pinscher aka Doberman or Dobermann, is one of the world’s most recognizable breeds of dog. Due partly to media attention as a vicious, cunning and loyal protector, and partly to their actual roles as companion, family pet and guard dog, everybody knows a Doberman.
Characterized by their deep devotion and protective nature, they are also one of the most respected and popular of all dog breeds. Always pleasing to the eye; muscular, alert, and graceful, no dog looks more elegant than the Doberman Pinscher.
Courageous and bold, resourceful and highly intelligent, the Doberman was once commonly used for military or police work. In many countries the dog’s disposition has improved through selective breeding and the modern Dobermann Pinscher, although energetic, is both suited for family life and as a guard dog. Always by your side, leaning against you, or with his head on your lap, a Doberman is not for everyone.
