A bunch of you might remember way back when i said i was getting a dog, well that was like 7 months ago. Here is Dakota currently, she is 9 months now. GREAT family dog, i dont know what people think about these dogs when they say they are viscous but god they are good dogs. Smart as hell, GREAT with my 5 year old kid and good watch dog and VERY friendly with other dogs.

Daily walks are needed with her as doberman's are generally very high energy dogs, i think i lucked out because i dont thinks he is as high energy as some of them.

It's all about how you raise them for sure!

Gorgeous Doby Shawn. You leaving her ears alone? As with all of the so-called vicious dogs it is all in how they are raised. A person is more likely to get attacked by a cocker spaniel than a doby or pitty.

can't get my wife over the "vicious" reputation.
Show her the pic of dakota and the cat, pic 4 or 5 i think lol

And i agree it's all about how you raise them, i put dakota into classes right when i got her, i been meaning to continue classes but she has never been a problem, eventually we will get into more classes.

She is not a mean dog a bit, remember she was attacked by a lab a few months ago, i think i posted pics of that too.

He's a beautiful dog, for sure. Glad to see his ears haven't been cropped; they look much better floppy anyway. :D

I'm glad to see the ears were left uncropped.. Now if we could just get breeders and the dog show community to quit the idiotic tail cropping..... Beautiful dog Shawn.

I was going to get the ears cropped but when it came down to it i could not feel good about putting her through the pain even thought i think they look alot better, but at the same time maybe more viscous.

I like dobies with the tails done, i dont think i would be as drawn to them with the long tails that they have. I wouldnt be opposed to the banning though.



I know in England you cannot crop ears anymore, just a matter of time before they start banning ear cropping in Canada.

Many people are afraid of some breed, my 13 year old dog Tyson, he is german sheppard X Rotti and people is afraid of him but if u get to know him he is such a big baby and super good boy, is the way you raised them and also how u treat them too, when i got Tyson he was agressive and wasnt used to b around people he was also abussed some how with a belt as everytime he saw one he use to hide, now he doesnt care about belts lol he just need it love

I owned a dobie years ago when I was younger. He was still the "best" and "smartest" dog I've ever owned. He was also the most friendly dog, a little territorial in his yard but would not have ever bit anyone....his energy level calmed down after about a year and was with me untill he was 11 yrs old.....I now own a boxer whose name is Chloe but should really be called psycho.....lol...way to much energy.....almost 2 years old and still hyper....enjoy your dog!!!!!

A dogs tail is a big part of its "communication". Animal behavior specialists say tail cropping does tend to make dogs more agressive because it handicaps them in their ability to "talk" to other dogs. Makes them more frustrated. Sorta like someone feeling frustrated trying to talk to someone who doesn't understand them. Personal opinion on the ears .. I much prefer the uncropped floppy ones

Love the dog. My friend has one that's about 2 years old and she's awesome. I totally trust her with my 3 year old son. She let's him ride her around the house. They also have a little mini greyhound. She's the boss of the house! LOL. She's the one that does all the barking and running around the house like a terror.

What a sweetie... people forget that there's a reason these dogs were only used in the army for a limited period: they're smart, athletic and intimidating but they just weren't aggressive enough.

Beautiful, gorgeous dog. But I am partial to them, we have had 2. They are THE best dogs, in my eyes. Great family dog, great watchdog, would love to get one again. Keep up with pics, I can smile from afar, really miss ours. :)
