      History: Created from crosses of an old indigenous German breed and the Rottweiler,  German Pinscher, and English black and tan terrier, this dog with is aristocratic bearing takes its name from Louis Dobermann of Apolda, Thueringen, who, around 1890, was instrumental in its development.
        Body: Medium sized, yet very powerful, muscular and well boned, the Doberman Pinscher has a compact squared body; a  short, almost horizontal back; a chest with well-developed ribs; a longV-shaped head; drop ears that naturally bend forward of are cropped to make them stand erect; dark almond-shaped eyes; and a short docked tail. The coat is short, glossy, and tough, lying flat on the body, and is usually bicolored black or blue with dark red, fawn, or rust-tan markings above the eyes, on the muzzle, throat, upper chest, limbs, feet, and underside of tail.

        Character: Agile, energetic, and ever alert, the Doberman is loyal, fearless guard and watch dog.

        Care: Coat care is easy, as it only needs to be massaged with a soft cloth or brush. If the dog is to be shown, the whiskers should be removed. Moderately hard dried food is preferable to help prevent tartar formation.

        Exercise: This very active breed requires extensive daily exercise including a lot of running, such as galloping alongside a bicycle, motorcycle, or jogger, and ball retrieval games within a securely fenced area.

        Training: As this breed can be quite aggressive, thorough obedience training from a very early age as well as hadling by a number of people are strongly recommended.

Puppies: The ears of the 3-8 puppies per litter should be cropped eight to twelve weeks after birth.
