    A neighbor across the street from us had one.. a male. He was one of the best and even tempered dogs I have ever seen. Friendly to a fault, loving, and just a joy to be around. He came in at over 190 pounds. They had to have him put down last year and they invited us over to say our good byes. That was a sad day. He was a wonderful pet to have around.

    Dear Lefteetris:

    what do you mean after 2 years? not sure what that means because it sounds like they have not gotten the puppy yet?

    Probably because the original post was made in November, 2008.

    i am so sorry this happened to you, this was not a dog from a very good breeder, and people tend to forget that even though we bring them into our home and they become a member of the family, They are still animals! i was reminded of that one day and i have been doing this for over 30 years, i hope this experience did not change your idea of dogs, if you have any thing you would like to ask me off list here is my Kennel e-mail as i still use it even though i just start to retire out of force

    Whatever you do, get this big guy to obedience school. Don't SEND him, TAKE him. All dogs need obedience training, but the larger breeds simply require it. Money and time well spent.

    My wife and I have had two Doberman Pinschers. People are afraid of them because of their regal, intimidation appearance. They are wonderful dogs but require a firm, consistent hand and a lot of training as does any dog. Not a dog for beginners. I recently advised a colleague of mine against getting one as he has not owned a dog before. We now have a Bouvier des Flandres (along with the Doberman) which is a high maintenance animal as well. Very protective and territorial.
