The Doberman Pinscher is known as one of the most effective guard dogs in the world. Once bred for the sole purpose of being a watch or protection breed, today’s Dobermans are being bred with more versatility in mind. Today, the Doberman Pinscher is used for search and rescue, police work, and as a loyal family companion. There was a time when Dobermans were bred with the intention of creating an aggressive breed, which led to a reputation that still precedes them.
A relatively young breed, first being seen around 1900, the Doberman Pinscher dog breed was created with a melting pot of different breeds that include the Old Shorthaired Shepherd, Rottweiler, Black and Tan Terrier, and the German Pinscher, among others. The Doberman Pinscher was first bred by a man named Louis Dobermann, a German Tax collector, who wanted a guard dog that was also a suitable companion.
