Brief history of the doberman breed
The Doberman is the only dog breed in Germany which is named after its first breeder, Friedrich Louis Dobermann. He was a night watchman who felt that he would need a brave canine companion that will accompany him during his rounds. Naturally the Doberman breed was create owing to Friedrich’s profession, because he needed an obedient dog that was able to defend.
Unfortunately, there are no precise breeding records for our friend, the Doberman, but many researches prove that it carried the blood of the rottweiler (distinguished for its strength, courage), weimaraner(a breed that is famous for its endurance), the Manchester terrier and German pinscher.
After the decease of Louis, perhaps the Greyhound was used to perfect the Doberman breed by 1899. The Doberman distinguished himself as a military services dog and its health and police of many countries use, nowadays, its many qualities.

Doberman Pinscher Health Concerns
The Doberman health care should be easy since it is generally a very healthy dog, but can be prone to spinal problems, gastric torsion, hip dysplasia and heart problems. Although dobermans need a lot of exercise, these dogs can adapt to living in an apartment if they get long daily walks and games to help them burn their energy. Despite this, they are dogs that will feel better if you have a spacious garden where they can enjoy running and having fun. With a low ability to withstand cold, the dobermann needs a proper place to sleep. If you let it sleep in the garden, you need a very well designed dog house that is free of drafts. Although the dobermann’s coat regularly loses hairs, it still needs a proper care.
