The Dobermann breed is named after Louis Dobermann, a German policeman and dog-catcher. By selectively mating dogs whose qualities he admired,
Dobermann produced a breed that made an excellent guard and companion dog to
help him carry out his police duties. They were
registered as a breed in 1890.

KUSA registered Dobermanns will have been tested for Hip Dysplasia in order for the puppies to be registered, however other hereditary health conditions that Dobermanns can display are vWD (a bleeding disorder), DCM (heart disease) and PHPV (abnormality of the eye). Do ask the breeder if the mum and dad have been tested for these conditions, and ask to see the results of the tests if you are unsure.
Early history of breeds of dogs
strong and energetic dogs, requiring firm handling and training while young.
They can be aggressive with other dogs, and people, so they make excellent watch
dogs. Care must be taken to teach children not to provoke the dog.
have a short, tough smooth coat that requires little grooming.

can be cropped (cut) to make them stand up, or they can be left natural. The
tail can be cut off to make it look like a stub, or it can be left intact. If
you're buying a Dobermann puppy, you can
ask the breeder not to amputate the puppy's tail.
Some people call the dogs "pinschers", meaning terrier, but the
Dobermann is not a terrier, he is a working dog bred to do a job of work -
namely to guard his master and property.
|Dogs are normally enthusiastic about
whatever they do. If they are guarding the property, they do it
whole-heartedly, running up and down the fence to intimidate any
intruder. Let's you and I be whole-hearted in our tasks! The Bible says,
"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might!"
Ecclesiastes 9, 10.
