Taxman

Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann was a tax collector & also ran the Apolda dog pound in Germany in the 1800’s.  As it may be easy to imagine, collecting taxes door to door may warrant need for some protection.

Given his access to many breeds at the pound,  he aimed to create a breed that would be ideal for protecting him during his collections.

So what do you get when you cross a

German Pinscher,  Beauceron,  Rottweiler, Thuringian Sylvan Dog,  Greyhound, Great Dane, Weimaraner, German Shorthaired Pointer,  Manchester Terrier and Old German Shepherd Dog?

A Doberman Pinscher, of course!
