Doberman Pinschers are well known as an intelligent, alert, and loyal companion dog. The Doberman Pinscher is an energetic and lively breed ideally suited for companionship and family life. Doberman Pinschers typically have a deep, broad chest, and a powerful, compact, and square muscular body of medium size. The dog typically stands between 26 to 28 inches 27.5 being ideal, the bitch is typically somewhere between 24 to 26 inches, 25.5 being ideal (UKC, AKC, UDC breed standard). The dog generally weighs between 75 and 100 pounds and the bitch between 60 and 90 pounds. There is often a slight difference in type between dogs and bitches, with males being decidedly masculine (but not coarse) and females being noticeably feminine (but not spindly). Two different color genes exist in the Doberman, one for black (B) and one for color dilution (D), which provides for four different color phenotypes: black, red, blue, and fawn (Isabella).
Doberman Pinschers were first bred in the town of Apolda, in the German state of Thueringen around 1890, following the Franco-Prussian war by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann. Dobermann served in the dangerous role of local tax collector, and ran the Apolda dog pound. With access to dogs of many breeds, he aimed to create a breed that would be ideal for protecting him during his collections, which took him through many bandit-infested areas. He set out to breed a new type of dog that, in his opinion, would be the perfect combination of strength, loyalty, intelligence, and ferocity. Later, Otto Goeller and Philip Gruening continued to develop the breed to become the dog that is seen today.
The Doberman Pinscher's natural tail is fairly long; the short tail is the result of docking, a procedure in which the majority of the tail is surgically removed within days of the dog's birth and (in the case of dogs which will be sold as puppies) prior to purchase. One argument for docking the Doberman's tail is that while the dog itself is large and strong, its long, delicate tail is easily injured; many working breeds thus have traditionally had the tail docked off in puppyhood as a preventative measure. It is also thought that docking completes the sleek look that Louis Dobermann had originally envisioned for his dog.
Doberman Pinschers will often have their ears cropped, as do many other breeds, a procedure that is functionally related to breed type for both the traditional guard duty and effective sound localization. Like tail docking, ear cropping is illegal in some countries, and in these Doberman Pinschers have natural ears. Doberman Pinscher ear cropping is usually done around 10 weeks of age. Cropping done after 16 weeks has a low rate of success in getting the ears to stand. Some Doberman Pinscher owners prefer not to have their pet's ears cropped because they are concerned the procedure is painful for the animal. The process involves trimming off part of the animal's ears and propping them up with posts and tape bandages, which allows the cartilage to develop into an upright position as the puppy grows. The incision scabs fall off within a week and stitches are removed a week after that. The puppy will still have the ability to lay the ears back or down. The process of posting the ears generally takes about a month, but longer show crops can take several months. Ear posting is more discomforting to the dog than the surgery itself. Posting techniques and the associated discomfort vary from one posting technique to the next.
Doberman Pinschers are, in general, gentle, loyal, loving, and intelligent dogs. Doberman Pinschers rank relatively high in playfulness, average in curiosity/fearlessness, low on aggressiveness and low on sociability. Although there is variation in temperament, a typical pet Doberman attacks only if it has been mistreated or believes that it or it's family are in danger. Dobermans are very easy to train and are highly intelligent, noble, loyal, and affectionate.
