Acquired: Other (stray, given dog by friend etc.)

My dog is absolutely great and I suggest everyone should buy one just like he is. I don't know how hard it is to be trained, because, unfortunately, I was just a little kid when we got it and my parents weren't so interested in training him, so they just let him be. However, it seems that without a day of training, he is a really smart dog, for he listen to many of our commands.
One thing to be mentioned is that it isn't dangerous for you to have a doberman, but for the others(Humans or not). At least this is how it happened with Nero. If someone is to enter our yard, he can do it without a worry...if we're at home. If he sees a stranger talking to one of our family member, then it's fine, but the situation changes when someone he doesn't know appears with no one he can recognize and trust.
Also, he is really jealous. If I play with my other dog he starts crying and comes to me and the things can get pretty messy if I'm not around. That's why it's better to keep your dogs in different cages.
In conclusion, a doberman mixed breed or not, can be your kind of dog. He grows attached to you and will forever love and protect your family...even the cat he doesn't like that much!
