Doberman Pinscher

 

a breed of working dog. The Doberman was bred in Germany at the end of the 19th century by L. Dobermann from traditional German short-haired pinschers crossed with German rottweilers, French sheepdogs, and German weimaraner pointers and possibly with mastiffs and German sheepdogs. Doberman pinschers were brought to Russia in 1902. The dog is large and bold and can be trained for various purposes. The male is 66-72 cm tall at the withers; the female, 60-68 cm tall. The hair is short, thick, and shiny, of a black, brown, or bluish-black color and with bright rust-colored singe-like markings. The head is wedge-shaped. The tail and ears of the pups are clipped to a specified form. Doberman pinschers are raised in many countries by dog lovers and are used in search and guard duties.
