About Dobermann Pinscher breed
Dobermann Pinschers are a medium sized dog that is powerful and muscular. They are quite elegant in appearance. The head should be shaped like a blunt wedge from the front and from the side. The eyes are almond in shape and medium sized. The eye colour in black Doberman’s will be brownish and in red, blue and fawn colour dogs the eye colour will blend with the dogs coat colour. Dobermann’s jaws are broad on the top and powerful and its teeth should make a scissor bite. Dobermann’s ears should be left natural but in some parts of the world they can be cropped to give them that pointy look. The same can be said about the tail; in some parts of the world it can be docked while in others it can be left natural.
The Dobermann Pinscher originates from Germany and still holds the name of the first breeder; Friedrich Louis Dobermann. Dobermann was a part time dog catcher and enjoyed breeding dogs that were particularly sharp in nature. The Dobermann was an early type of Rottweiler mixed with a type of shepherd and over time we got the breed we know today.
Dobermann’s can have a few different colour schemes. These include: black, red, blue, and fawn. They can also have rust colour markings on the muzzle, throat, and forechest.
Dobermann’s are smooth-haired and the coat should be short, hard and thick. The Doberman sheds moderately. Regular brushing will help keep him and your home neat. As with any dog, brushing before a bath helps eliminate more dead hair, which leaves less hair to shed. Your vacuum cleaner will work longer if you brush your Doberman regularly.
