History of the Doberman

Friedrich Louis Dobermann
* 02. Januar 1834 09. Juni 1894

The history of the doberman begins in the little town Apolda Thuringia/Germany.

The name of the race doberman goes back to the man about who the histories are not in common.
In one way it is told that he was a dogcatcher or knacker, policeman, messenger and taxman. As he lost one time in one of his jobs he got the idea to breed dogs.

At the other way you heard about stories, which tell, that he had cought dogs in the name of the town Apolda. These dogs would killed after three days unsuccessful searching for the owners. By that should two of his friends supported him, who was united that strong and with the needed instinct tendency, appropriated dogs not to kill. These dogs should be breeded, sold and the win shared.

The history is united about, that today it is not understandable which dogs at that time coupled with each other.

It would proceeded that following races in the breed of Friedrich Louis Dobermann came into being a reliancy dog of protection, today our doberman, influenced:

· Old type of German shepherd
(hardness, learning-skills, health)
· German Pinscher
· Weimaraner
(hunter-skills, note-tendency, colours)
· Rottweiler, at that time called meat-dog
(power, protection instinct)
· Greyhound
· Manchester Terrier
(short smooth coat, allocated colours)

It is certain that the dogs of Dobermann became famous fast. They contrasted with the breeds so far extremely. They searched theirselfs as unconditional, self-confident fighters, sharped keepers, unimpressed by gunshots and stick blows. And in some of them slumber still now the fearless warrior of those days.
