PHOTO COURTESY: PATTY MILTON / DOBERMAN PINSCHER Doberman Pinscher Doberman Pinscher This medium-sized German working breed is named for Louis Dobermann, its creator. A skilled breeder, he developed the Doberman by crossbreeding several breeds. Although those used will never be positively known, the German Pinscher, Rottweiler, Manchester Terrier and the Greyhound have been suggested. Perfected late in the 19th century, the breed was accepted for registration by the German Kennel Club in 1900 and first imported to this continent in 1908. The Dobe has become internationally renowned as a security dog, does extremely well in obedience work and makes a loyal family pet. Ideal height for males is 27-1/2 inches (70 cm) at the shoulder. The clean profile is enhanced by a gleaming, close-fitting, short coat in black, red, blue or fawn, all with rust markings. Minimum grooming is required. Highset ears are usually cropped to a point but may be left natural. The breed does need regular exercise to maintain their sleek good looks, and adapts well to either city or country living. tBodyguard Perm Reg’d, Florin Niculescu.
