Doberman Pinscher

Doberman Pinschers are, in general, gentle, loyal, loving, and intelligent dogs.The Doberman is a strong, noble breed that protects the ones he loves! Although there is variation in temperament, a typical pet Doberman attacks only if it has been mistreated or believes that it or its family are in danger.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Doberman Pinscher is less frequently involved in attacks on humans resulting in fatalities than several other dog breeds such as pit bull type dogs, German Shepherd Dogs, Rottweilers and Alaskan Malamutes.
