After being attacked one too many times by bandits and being at threat from wild animals, he decided he needed a dog to protect him.
As a dog catcher, he had access to many varieties of dogs that he would impound. Many times the owners never came forward, and Louis Doberman would adopt large dogs for his own protection. After deciding that none of the dogs were powerful, agile, or scary-looking enough, he started breeding his own dogs.
The Doberman was created from large dog breeds. Louis Doberman never reviled exactly which dogs make up the Dobermans genetics, but it’s thought he used a mixture of Rottweiler, German Pinscher, and Black and Tan Terrier. There’s also likely to be some unknown breed in there as well.
