He wanted a dog tat would protect him as well as be a loyal companion. It’s safe to say that people were certainly more willing to pay their taxes with a Doberman by his side.

You should not purchase a dog with the intention of training it to be aggressive. Nor will we sell a dog to someone who has the intention of making a dog aggressive.
Pet Friendly Moderately – The Doberman has a tendency to be aggressive towards other male dogs. Male on male aggression is something that is instinctive for the Doberman.
