Dobermans have long been the canine symbol of guardianship and bravery. These dogs, who have their origins in Germany in the 19th century, were officially registered in the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1908. They have since enjoyed popularity in the U.S., but their history is full of facts that may surprise even the most devoted Doberman enthusiast.
