Doberman Pinschers are intelligent, alert, loyal, muscular, fast, and powerful dogs. These attributes combine to make an excellent personal protection dog. It is thought that Dobermans were first bred in the 1880s. Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann lived in the German state of Thuringia, and although not a lot is known about him, it is believed that he ran a dog pound. Since he had access to many dog breeds, it is believed that he got the idea to create a breed that would be ideal for protecting him in a variety of jobs. It is thought that he held several dangerous jobs, including a tax collector, a rent collector, and a night watchman. A fun fact about the Doberman Pinscher name is that the breed was named after Dobermann after he died in 1894. The Germans named the breed Dobermann-pinscher in his honor, but a half century later they dropped the word “pinscher” on the grounds that this German word for “terrier” was no longer appropriate to the breed. The British did the same a few years later. Now it is the US and Canada that are the only countries who continue to use Pinscher and have dropped an “n” from Dobermann’s surname. During WWII, the USMC adopted the Doberman Pinscher as its official war dog.
