The Doberman Pinscher is a strong, loyal, protective, loving, alert, fearless, regal, sleek, swift dog with powerful jaws, a long tail, a pointed snout, and strong paws. It is also a misunderstood breed along with Pitbulls, Rottweilers and many more.
It is the 14th most popular dog breed. Intelligent and obedient, the dog is easy to train. They can be quite stubborn, though. They have a high energy level, so taking them on walks, having a big backyard, and playing with them often is ideal. They have a short coat, so brushing and bathing is not needed often. They are a generally healthy breed.

Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann combined several breeds of dogs to create Doberman Pinschers, or 'Dobermann's Pinschers'. He felt the need to have a dog to protect him in the alleys and streets and persuade slow payers to hand over their money.
