– However, Dorbermann did not reveal the breeding formula for this breed. There have been many speculations that this breed was bred from German Pinscher, German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Great Dane, Weimarane…and a few other breeds to form this breed. They inherit all the qualities of the previous races, intelligent, brave, loyal and extremely combative. After the death of Louis, this breed of dog received the official name
Doberman after the founder’s name. Later they were recognized by the German Kennel Club and became one of the four great national dogs of this country.
– Later they continued to be developed by breeders in Germany. At this time, the Doberman dog breed is much more combative, brave, intelligent and healthy. Very quickly they were brought back to the US after World War II, the rest nearly extinct in Europe.

Now after many years of development, Doberman along with some other ferocious dog breeds like Dogo, Pitbull, Rot… have been banned in many countries around the world.
