Dobie in new movie

Went to see Harry Potter and the Deathy Hallows Part 2 today and while watching a preview for the upcoming movie "Hugo" there it was, a black dobie. He is with a character that is in a train station and gives chase to the boy character. The dog appears at 40 seconds into the trailer. http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/filmb...e-hugo-trailer

I love to see dobes in movies but I wish this one were in a more positive manner, i.e. Not chasing the main character who happens to be a child..........just my opinion, for what its worth.

I saw that yesterday too! I got so excited when I saw the dobe, and then when they made him/her out to be a bad guy I was not happy. Just once make a labrador or something a bad guy. lol

Another Bad Doberman Stereotype in Movies?

The Hugo Movie trailers are runnng on TV. This appears to be yet another movie perpetuating Hollywood's bad image of Dobermans.

Here is link to site with multiple trailers to view:
Hugo | Trailer & Official Movie Site | November 2011

I watched the trailers and most show the Doberman patrol dog with a policeman character, apparently, the "bad guy". Most of the trailers have Doberman searching, chasing and terrifying the small boy main character.

There also are some short comedic scenes with the Doberman so maybe it's not a total slam job, as done with "Diablo", the Dobe, in "Beverly Hills Chihuaha"

It seems that a negative depiction of a particular breed in a popular movie, seen by millions, can easily negate any promotion of the breed by even thousands of responsible owners. A positive image in movies can likewise increase a breed's popularity and public perception, such as with pugs and labs (apparently Hollywood's favorite).

I am surprised that Doberman organizations don't take a more proactive action in monitoring Hollywood and television's roles of Dobermans, then voicing opposition when necessary. Indeed, most every other special interest or minority group does do this.

The prejudicial attitudes of the public when encountering Dobermans, that numerous DT members relate in this forum, I believe are formed from the entertainment industry's negative stereotype, not people's personal experience. In fact, before I owned a Doberman, I had never seen in print or in movies, a Dobe with it's ears down, not on alert, but being affectionate and goofy as we know they are.

What would really help is if one of our DT members, who have a great Dobe lifetime or rescue story, could write a book or screenplay presenting Doberman's honestly. If nothing else, this forum and other Doberman organizations, could initiate written opposition campaigns to negative images of Dobermans when published in film or television productions.

I watched 2 trailers and 2 tv spots and saw one chase scene with the doberman, which the policeman sent him after the boy. There was also a very brief clip in it where the dog laid down on his side and whined, looking very cute, so I think that its possible that the dog might not be portrayed completely bad throughout the entire movie. I would be curious to see the whole thing just to see the dog, though I dont know if Id go to the theatre to see it, unless I had kids who would be interested in the movie.

I have seen several movies and tv shows that have dobermans as guard dogs, or being the bullies. Very few show them as intelligent loving dogs. I can only think of one I have seen myself where the dog was a loving loyal companion and in it the dog was abused in dog fighting, "Eyes of an Angel" and I love that story. It is a shame that Hollywood cant portray our dogs truthfully and show just how loving, loyal and all around great they are.

It doesn't bother me at all that Dobermans are portrayed in a negative light in most movies. As a young female, I actually prefer that people are scared or intimidated by the dog I am with. Plus, it would break my heart to see a rise in popularity if there was a movie about sweet Dobermans. Let's keep their sweet goofy sides to our selves

Very good point RottenVonSpotten . That is how the cocker spaniel and the dalmation were ruined. Over irresponsible breeding after that had movies made about them. Hate to see that happen to our breed.

There are 2 Dobie's in the new movie Tower Heist. They are owned by Eddie Murphy's character. There is a line in the movie about having to give respect to Eddie Murphy's character because he owns 2 dobermans.

Omg, some of you are thinking about this waaay too much.

What would look more intimidating chasing after someone, Michael Myers in his William Shatner mask, or Justin beiber singing one of his gay songs?

Exactly.

It's either a big, intimidating dog...not necessarily a terror, or it's fluffy the toy poodle.

I don't think fluffy would make the cut and have anyone on pins and needles.

Saw the movie. While I enjoy watching this breed featured on the big screen and in real life, on the other hand, I too hate the Hollywood-snarling stereotype. But I don't think this was necessarily the negative stereotype but perhaps rather a historically thoughtful depiction of the best working/protection/guard dogs circa 1920s/1930s. Respecting the history and found the pooch to be a silly goof in a few scenes.

I don't really mind the Hollywood stereotype, but I do blame stupid people for believing it. Anthony Hopkins always plays bad guys- does everyone believe he's a cannibal? People should realize its the same thing with Dobermans!

Hell, if they tried to put so many of these other breeds in a real part of a movie that required actual training, they'd probably just jump on the actors!
