Loyal and fiercely protective guard dogs

Dobermans got their name from a German tax collector, Ludwig Dobermann, who, being well aware of his unpopularity and the dangers of his job, developed an especially fierce breed of dog to protect him on his rounds. The Doberman was first presented at a dog show in 1876 and was an immediate success. Today, Dobermans (the name of the breed has dropped an "n") are widely used as guard dogs.
