Where Are Doberman Pinschers From?
The Doberman breed originated in Germany in the late 1800s. A man named Louis Dobermann is recognized as the creator of the breed. The Doberman is a mixture of a Rottweiler, Black and Tan Manchester Terrier, German Pinscher, and German Pointer. It is said that Dobermann was a tax collector and wanted a fearless and aggressive guard dog to accompany him while he was doing his collection rounds. He also worked at a local animal shelter, which provided him with access to many different breeds, and the ability to quickly develop a new breed. By 1920, the breed was found throughout Europe, South Africa, and the United States.
