Description: Doberman puppies or Doberman Pinschers are a medium to large breed of domestic dog that was originally developed around 1890 in Germany as a working dog. The Dobermann has a long muzzle. It stands on its 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. Dobermanns have markings on the chest, paws and legs, muzzle, above the eyes, and underneath the tail. The Dobermann has a square frame, its length should equal its height to the withers and the length of its head, neck, and legs should be in proportion to its body.
Dobermans were originally intended as guard dogs, so males typically have a muscular and intimidating appearance and females are usually thinner.
Two different color genes exist for the Dobermann: one for Black and the other for a Color Dilution. There are nine possible combinations with these gene options which can result in four different color phenotypes: black, blue, red, and fawn (Isabella). The traditional and most common color occurs when both the color and dilution genes have at least one dominant allele and is commonly referred to as black, black and rust, or black and tan. The red, red rust, or brown coloration occurs when the black gene has two recessive alleles but the dilution gene has at least one dominant allele. The blue Dobermann has the color gene with at least one dominant allele and the dilution gene with both recessive alleles. The fawn coloration is the least common, occurring only when both the color and dilution genes have two recessive alleles. Thus, the blue color is a diluted black, and the fawn color is a diluted red.
Size: Adult males average 27-28 inches and females about 25-27 inches and weigh about 70-100 pounds.
Temperament & Behavior: Dobermans are known to be extremely intelligent, alert, and tenaciously loyal companions and guard dogs. Personality varies a great deal between each individual, but if taken care of and trained properly, they are generally considered to be loving and devoted companions. The Dobermann is driven, strong, and sometimes stubborn. Owning one requires commitment and care. With a consistent approach, they can be easy to train and will learn very quickly. The Doberman Pinscher ranks as average for dog-directed aggression and dog rivalry.
Care: Originally bred as a working dog, Dobermans need a lot of exercise and are sensitive to cold weather and needs adequate shelter in winter. Doberman Pinscher is a family dog and shouldn't be left alone. They thrive when included in family activities.
