Which breed of dog is this?
The Dobermann, (or Doberman Pinscher in the United States and Canada), is a medium-large breed of domestic dog that was originally developed around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, a tax collector from Germany.
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. Dobermanns have markings on the chest, paws/legs, muzzle, above the eyes, and underneath the tail.
Canine intelligence is an umbrella term that encompasses the faculties involved in a wide range of mental tasks, such as learning, problem-solving, and communication. The Doberman Pinscher has been ranked amongst the most intelligent dog breeds in experimental studies and expert evaluations.
Dobermanns are known to be alert, 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.
Although they are considered to be working dogs, Dobermanns are often stereotyped as being ferocious and aggressive. The Dobermann was originally bred for these traits: it had to be large and intimidating, fearless, and willing to defend its owner from attackers, but sufficiently obedient. The Dobermann is driven, strong, and sometimes stubborn. With a consistent approach, they can be easy to train and will learn very quickly.
