From Germany To Around The World
Although the exact origins of the Doberman breed cannot be verified, it’s believed that this popular breed came about in Germany in the early 1880’s. In the town of Apolda, in the state of Thuringia, lived Herr Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, the man credited with developing the Doberman. Herr Doberman was born in 1834 and died in 1894, at which time the Germans named the breed, Doberman Pinscher in his honor.
The Doberman was also known at the time as “Thuringian pinschers”, “Dobermann’s Hunde” or dobermann’s dogs and “Soldatenhunds” or soldier dogs. The pinscher was later dropped in 1949 as it was not a suitable descriptor for the breed. (Note that the miniature pinscher is not a “mini” Doberman and not related.) Also the second “n” in dobermann has been dropped in most parts of the world. Read More » » »
