The Doberman Pinscher was bred in Germany in the late 19th century as a guard dog and companion. Brave, intelligent and easily trained, he also came into high demand as a police and war dog. This energetic, watchful and obedient breed makes an affectionate and loyal family dog. His short coat requires minimal maintenance, but he does best with regular exercise.
