Did you know they made a movie about Dobermans robbing a bank?!
Not only did they make it, but it has 3 sequels, believe it or not.
The Doberman Gang is a movie from 1972 about an ex-con, waitress, and a few of their friends who train a pack of Dobermans to rob banks. And no, the Doberman Gang is not based on a true story. But Dobermans are a smart breed and very trainable that it makes the movie almost believable.
There were three sequels that followed include The Daring Dobermans (1973), The Amazing Dobermans (1976), and the lesser-known Alex and the Doberman Gang (1980).
