The History of Doberman
The Doberman or the Doberman Pinscher is a medium-large breed of domestic dog that was originally developed around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, a tax collector from Germany. With access to dogs of many breeds, he got the idea to create a breed that would be ideal for protecting him. He set out to breed a new type of dog that would exhibit impressive stamina, strength, and intelligence.
Many experts believe that the Doberman Pinscher is a combination of several breeds including the old shorthaired shepherd, Rottweiler, Black and Tan Terrier, and the German Pinscher. Five years after Doberman's death, Otto Goeller, one of the earliest breeders, created the National Doberman Pinscher Club and is considered to have perfected the breed in the 1890s.
The Doberman quickly gained an international reputation as a working dog supreme. They have excelled at police and military K-9 duty, as therapy dogs and service dogs for the disabled, as search-and-rescuers, and in competitive dog sports. During World War II, the Doberman of the United States Marine Corps gained a lot of popularity.
Doberman is sleek, powerful, and possesses both a magnificent physique and keen intelligence.
