I write this as a previous owner of a dobie. Atom was my favorite dog out of many owned and loved over the years. He was abandoned on Rte 95 in Massachusetts and we ended up adopting him from a shelter I happened to be working at. Great disposition balanced by an unmistakable protective side. These are traits shared by many dobermans who if understood and respected can be the ultimate dog to have. Forget the bad rap. If you instruct your dobie correctly, they want to make you happy. They want to succeed in your family.
