A dog can hear sounds 250 yards away. A Doberman can ignore you from any distance.

There are around 700 types of pure breed dog. The Doberman is the only breed considered perfect.

On average, dog owners spend $200.00 annually on veterinary related expenses. On average they spend a fortune on Dobie treats.

In America, approximately one family in three owns a dog. Unfortunately not everybody can own a Doberman.

Every year more  than five million puppies are born in the United States. All of them wish they were Doberman.

The bloodhound is the only animal whose evidence is admissible in American court. The Doberman should be the only animal trusted to bring a perpetrator to court.

The basenji is the only dog that cannot bark. The Doberman makes up for the basenji.

Did you know that dogs can learn up to 50 words of any human language? A Doberman can ignore all of them.

Top five Smartest Dogs: 1) Border Collie; 2) Poodle; 3) German Shepherd; 4) Golden Retriever; 5) Doberman Pinscher.

In times of old mastiffs wearing light armor, carrying spikes and pots of flaming sulphur and resin ran into battle against mounted knights. Thankfully the Doberman was yet to be conceived.

Ancient Chinese royalty carried Pekingese dogs in the sleeves of their royal robes. A Doberman would have been too large.

Unlike cats, dogs can differ sharply in appearance, function, and size. Some dogs can weigh as little as 1.5lbs, and some can weigh as much as 200lbs. Of all shapes and sizes the Doberman is the only configuration considered perfect.

LOVE the list!!!  I would add that not only can Dobermans ignore you, they ignore you in the dark out in the dog yard, knowing you can not see them. They know they are invisible at night.

Great list Paul

Not only will they disappear in the yard at night, but what about the Doberman that even in broad daylight thinks that it is stealthy and can sneak up on you.
