Has Your Doberman Ever Saved/Protected/Defended You?

Hey everyone!
Kind of random, but I was talking to an elderly person in my neighborhood a few days ago who used to own Dobermans years ago. She was/is an avid fan of them and spoke highly of their intelligence, strength, and beauty and talked about how much fun she had showing them. Needless to say, we had plenty to talk about! She told me a story about a red female she owned once that saved her life(or so she believes) years ago. The woman told me this dog was as gentle as they come and had the heart of a puppy her whole life, no mental or health issues. They were out walking one night(she was out of town visiting family) and they ended up confronted by a burglar who drew a knife on the woman and demanded her purse and jewelry. He didn't yell, didn't strike her, didn't make a huge scene but the woman said her dog knew IMMEDIATELY he was the "bad guy" and became one pissed off Dobie very quickly. She said this female automatically took a fighting stance, growled, and barked while straining at the end of her leash. When the criminal turned to run, the dog pulled free of her hands, chased the guy down, took him down physcially by his hide, then stood gaurd, growling inches from his face until his very stunned and shell-shocked owner called the police! She said this dog played with babies, lived with rabbits and birds peacefully, went right back to being a puppy, and never used her aggresion ever again the rest of her days. Just the one time she "knew" her mom needed it.

Anyway, long story short, this amazing story got me thinking. Do any of you have a story similar to this? Has your Doberman ever come to your rescue or someone else's? I'm not talking about a protection trained dog(unless you're in the line of duty with your Dobie) or one who has been abused and neglected their whole life and is therefore more prone to aggresion and such. Just a special Doberman doing what well-bred genetics have programmed them to do: be a loyal protector and gaurdian. I'm sure we all know an ignorant person who will trash talk this breed about their un-deserved stereotype, but you don't hear many of the good stories or the ones that hail a Doberman a hero....

Anyway, thanks for reading.

I am a SUPER heavy sleeper! Before we moved into this house, we were in these apartments, unfortunately I had left the bathroom fan on and it got stuck and overheated. Well the bathroom caught on fire, and the smoke alarm did not wake me. Gunnar jumped on the bed and began barking profusely until I woke up! I'm not so sure I would have been able to get him and Miguel (our cat) out of the house safely if he hadn't of woke me when he did. Now the bathroom ceiling was on fire, and it was pretty slowly moving to the other things in the bathroom, but still. With my husband being deployed it was a big deal to me! (I secretly hated those apartments, so I got out of the lease the next day, and stayed with a friend for a few weeks until I could find a new place)

I moved 11 months ago into town after living in the country for 30 years. I found a private house with a big yard and trees that doesn't face the street, it faces the next door neighbor's house. Well, of course the neighbors are drug dealers! There are cars in and out of their driveway at all hours of the night and day. 12 car parties on Friday and Saturday nights and hookers!

My two girls are very watchful of the goings on there. They bark like crazy when anyone is just milling about out in their driveway with a cell phone to their ear. They don't bark when cars come in or out there, and used to love the children when they lived there (the kids are gone now) My girls also never bark at other neighbors, unless they come on our property. I guess this isn't a save my life story... yet

Our Amy is as sweet as can be, with many people of all ages and most dogs to.
- she is also a certified therapy dog, retired now & I personally trained and titled her in OB

She even gets mad, if she is not outside to wait for our regular mail man to greet him...in the mornings.
We frequently babysit 2 YoukiePoos at 7 lbs. each...the little girl is 3 legged now & Amy fully respects her space & never steps on her.

BUT:
1) backed up and held, a meter reader once, next door...she grew up with their children & was protecting them
2) a guy that delivers junk mail, she would not let him off our front porch...unless I called her off...maybe she knew something?
3) didn't like a man with a cane, on our property once...maybe she preceived it being used like a weapon, on a family member
4) wife was walking around our high school track once and a GSD/Lab mix bolted off a leash and run full out to bite and attack mom.
Amy off-leash quickly came to her defense, positioning herself between the aggressive dog and her mom....Amy submissed the bigger dog, and everyone returned safely
- when I heard the story, I praised the cr*p out of our girl, she seemed to know what she had just did...and she was wearing the biggest smile ever...good girl
5) I had a part time worker, for odd jobs once and didn't know he had recently got mixed up in expensive drug use...and started doing B&E to pay for his habits. Once at night, he came to our home and as my 4x4 truck was absent from the driveway, he knew I was out.
My wife answered the side door, and Amy went nuts on him, growling and barking...and Mom let Amy continue, because she was scared and thought the visit was very odd. Turns out this guy was casing our joint, and a week later he was picked up by police and charged with ~25 local house robberies.

AND:
Someone was giving me a verbal lashing years ago, from a distance, because he didn't like my vehicle parked legally on the street.
I had enough of his BS, so I sicked Amy on him...and called her off...when she got within 15 feet from the jerk...she has a 100% rock solid recall.
He shut his mouth, pretty darn quick...last time i had a problem, with this bit*hy neighbor.

My RIP girl was about 8 months old, very laid back I knew there was no way she would be protective. Well, I had to go apply for a passport and the only place in my area doing that at the time was in Hooker/druggies /alcoholic row. She was laying on the floorboard of my pickup. As I was walking out f he building, there was a group of about 5 drunk men and they reached my pickup the same time I was unlocking the doors. Big Guy approached me asking for some money, I said I'm sorry I don't have anything. He then yelled I just want a few dollars. I said, look I don't have any cash and even if I did, there is no way ihell I am going to support your addiction. I opened my truck door to get in and he grabbed it and jerked it open saying. Give me money!!!! I dunno why, but I said my girls name.... TIA. She jumped up and flew out the door and did almost a perfect bark and hold! Half jumping from a sitting position baring, snapping, drool flying everywhere. His eyes got big he put his hands in the air like an old western movie, started walking backwards, said I'm sorry for bugging you..he turned and went the other direction. Needless to say I was. Shocked. TIA got right back in the truck without any commands and sat there like...OK lets get the show on the road. We drove right to McDonald's and I got her a quarter plunder and lots of love.

I work in a remote industrial office.
It's great to have Roxy with me, but I wondered how much protection she would be, because although she barks whenever someone comes around, she greets everyone who walks in like her long-lost best friend.
But one day a big dude came in unannounced. Roxy got up and barked, then stopped dead about five feet from him and just stood there looking at him.
He said he must be in the wrong unit, and asked me a few questions...then left.
Roxy just stood between him and I, quietly, alertly. That's the first and only time she ever acted that way.

Edit to add: I praised her to high heaven for it. I wanted her to know I appreciated her caution.

What wonderful stories, they give me feel-good chills! It's like the dog's just know and I think that's got to be one of the most amazing parts about having a close bond with something like a Doberman.

Back in college my roomate tried to burn us alive after he had been out bar hopping. He decided to fry up potatoes in grease and then passed out cold so the grease caught fire. My dobie Moose was able to wake me up by standing on my chest barking within inches of my face. I was able to find my way out of the bedroom though it seemed to take forever because of the smoke. I found my roomate on the floor and we all made it outide safe, and as soon as we got our wits back we were able to go back inside and get the fire out. I firmly believe I would not be here today of it was not for my good boy Moose.

I actually have a story for each of our dobes.

My dad often travelled for work, and my mom would be alone in the house with me. One night my mom was reading in bed, and the only light in the house was her bedroom window. Schatza was sleeping at the foot of her bed, as she did when my dad was gone (she was so awesome, the only time she would move was to come into my room and check on me, then go back to my mom's bed). Just as my mom was dozing, someone tried to come in the bedroom window. Schatza was off the bed and to the window in half a second. The guy had just started getting the window actually open, so she put her nose right to the bottom of the window through the curtains and went ballistic. My mom called police before she called Schatza off, but the guy was long gone.

Shortly before I was born, my mom was home again at night. Whenever she opened the front door, she always put Beau in plain sight so people would know the dog was there. For some reason, this particular night she had his collar in her other hand, behind the door. A guy dressed as a cop claimed he needed to ask her some questions. She didn't like it, and Beau was apparently tense already, so she didn't open the screen door. Guy pulled a knife and opened the screen, right as my mom had to let go of Beau because he started going beserk. He chased the guy outside, until my mom called him back because she was scared the guy would stab him and wasn't sure he didn't have another weapon or another person waiting out there.

Needless to say, they both were rewarded very highly.

Ok, here is another one about my RIP girl. Although its not a protection type, but kinda unbelievable. Thank goodness I had my nephew there as a witness or everyone would have called "bullshit".

Ok my RIP girl was extremely smart, knew well over 75 verbal commands as well as silent hand signals. But I usually told her what to do, usually never do things on her own.

So my nephew and I were rafting down the local river in tubes along with Tia ( in her lifevest of course ) we were about 3 miles from our camp and decided to pull out in a sandy area to do some swimming. We had tied our rafts together earlier so we wouldnt get separated. I jump out first and tell my nephew to pull up the rafts far up on the bank so they wouldnt float away. ( yeah stupid me ) Well, Tia crawled up the 6 foot bank and ran to play in the tall grass. Soon my nephew joined me and we were diving. A couple mins later we both came up for air and I turned around and lo and behold, here are both of our rafts, tied together floating down the river about 50 ft away. I said, oh no ! My nephew turned to look, about that time Tia launched herself off the embankment and swam like heck to the rafts, she grabbed the rope tying them together, turned around and started swimming, upstream against the current. Both my nephew and I looked at each other, mouths open, turned to watch as my 65 lb dog hauled 2 large rubber rafts upstream agains a fair current. And instead of coming to me ( like when retrieving a toy ) she took the rafts back over to the sandy beach area and proceeded to growl and tug the rope to get the rafts onto land. My nephew said, Ummm how did she know to do that, you didnt say anything?? I said, yeah and you better thank your lucky stars she did, because 3 miles is a long way to walk to camp.

Later that night I was telling his mother over the phone and she did call Bullshit on the story and her son got on the phone, and swore oh my gawd ma, you should have seen it ! No joke, neatest thing I ever saw !

Aww man, I miss her... RIP Tia, 13 yrs old, my heart dog

Thankfully my current three haven't been put to the test--only in their minds.

Every morning when the squirrels become active or a worker shows up, my guys are determined to bark and warn me of impending danger. They will flop on my bed between me and the perceived enemy, then run and bit the enemy thru the window and back to flop on me.

I had a red male, Walker, who was very protective. Friendly as the dickens with everyone yet protective to his owners. My brother ran up behind me and grabbed me around the waist and from out of nowhere Walker nailed him. My son came running in the house in a state of panic, screaming that he was about to turn the tractor over. My brother went running out of the house chasing my son to get to the tractor and from out of nowhere Walker nailed him.

I have a part time stalker, whenever he sees me he follows me around, running from tree to tree hiding then looking out then scuttling to another tree and so on. Most of the time he just plays a kind of cat and mouse game which annoys the crap out of my dogs but one day he suddenly jumped out of hiding in front of me and threw a sack of carob pods inches from my feet causing me to jump and stop short. Toby immediately threw himself between the man and my position turning from my sweet nervous boy into a slavouring killer Doberbeast who was going to eat the jerk if he so much as put one foot in front of the other in my direction.

Toby has also protected a friends dog when I told him to go help him when hunters set their dogs onto him. My friend and I were the other side of a dried up river bed whose sides slowed our going to her little dogs aide without a great deal of scrambling and climbing. However what nearly flummaxed us mere humans was a doddle to Toby and he was able to get over the obstacles without a problem and waded in and stood gaurd over his little friend sending the hunting dogs scattering followed by their owners shortly after when my friend and I got over to their side.

Toby has also stopped my son stepping onto a snake late one night when they were out for his last walk of the day. If he had stepped on it he would have certainly been bitten by one of the few snakes that can kill if it bites you here in Spain.

In 2006.....I was upstairs in my house...sick in bed. I took cold meds and was OUT like a light....Nothing was waking me up. When I came downstairs much later on....the back door was wide open. And my back gate was also open. Thank god both dogs were in the house still! They didn't leave. Anyhow....someone obviously tried to come in.

But all that I saw....were two wet footprints facing into the house on my kitchen floor.
So obviously, this person took a step into the house.....then must have decided to turn around and leave! ha

Lily and my old dog Strider, must have 'greeted' him and I'll bet he thought twice!

Besides this incident, where the dogs didn't let a stranger in....and also both stayed at the house with an open door and gate.....
Lily always barks and 'strange' people. ie. If we're walking at the park at night.....we can pass several people without a second look. But she'll be blowing air out the side of her lips and growling or barking at 'drunks, druggies, weirdos'.

They really can tell!

Advice: Always trust your dog!

Years and years ago when my last dobe was 10 months and relatively normal (read NOT aggressive and showing in conformation) I was at the Palm Springs, CA show and staying in a Motel 6. Turned out to be in NOT a nice area. Bret had to potty around 11 pm. So I go out half awake in flip flops PJS and head to the potty area in the way back of the building, with very little lighting. Not thinking anything but OMG hurry and go I need sleep. I vaguely saw a small car drive by the manager's office which was the only thing open and come straight to where we were. He then got out and came over and asked me directions somewhere. I just got this odd "pit in my stomach feeling" why ask a stranger visiting at a hotel directions and WHY go past the manager's office. I said I wasn't from around here and said GO BACK to the manager's office. I turned to bolt to the hotel room and felt something, Bret flew from in front me to behind me snarling and lunging. As I turned around he appeared to be running at us and much closer to me than I was comfortable with...I have NO idea what his intention was but he snarling Doberman was thankfully enough to stop him and then I screamed GET AWAY and he got in his car and drove off. I was so thankful at that moment Bret grew tall fast as he clearly looked like an adult.

My 2nd girl and I were home at night alone as my husband was working late. I saw a light through my blinds going back and forth in the back yard. I crack opened the window and shouted what's going on. The man shouts back I am from the cable company as he is hopping my fence. I shouted back well I am the queen of England and I am letting out my dog. The guy shouts go ahead I have mace. I let Kyra out and she hit that fence so hard I thought it was going to fall down. The guy is now stuck on the fence shouting get you dog. I did call her off after the cops came By the way he did not work for the cable company.
Roxy my current girl has stood her ground during all of the remolding at the house when the workers would just walk in through the garage without letting me know. Needless to say they only did that once.

We were all gone doing errands and someone cut the back window out and was ready to crawl inside. They didn't know that my female doberman was inside...........no one entered the home to rob us....when I returned the police were called and they said nothing was taken because of your dog......We praised her............. My yard is well marked with signs.....so everyone knows we have a dobe................

My last foster female LOVED everybody. I had her about 6 months when a guy came in my house with a friend. Molly took an alert position in front of me, and while this guy talked and moved around, Molly was silently staring him down while moving in any direction she had to in order to keep him from being directly in front of me. That was the one and only time that she did that, and I had her almost a year! I didn't realize that there was anything wrong with him, but Molly did and he wasn't allowed back after that...I always trust my dogs instincts on people. I later found out he was on drugs and a very shady guy that you don't want around!

Your stories give me hope for my new guy Deacon. He adores everybody and is so gentle, so I always worry that he wouldn't protect me if I needed him. It sounds like most everybody has/had dobies with the same personality that stepped up to the plate when they needed to!

Wow.. I am loving this thread, thank you K&M for starting it.. I believe every single post and I know without a doubt that these guys are positively instinctive and will protect all of us with their lives.
Sofia has shown her protectiveness on several occasions. We live in Mexico and 99% of the locals are peaceful, loving and full of joy. They've gotten to know Sofia and adore her ( in fact one little girl thought she was a deer) ( Sofia is a fawn girl with big doe eyes)
I was sitting in a parked car waiting for my husband to come out of a mercado. Sofia~ sound asleep in the back. A shirtless guy with prison tats came out of the store holding a paper bag. Sofia was wide awake and frothing at the windows instantly. The odd thing is he didn't even look our way.. but something in the air, ( or maybe it was my tension) woke her up and alerted her.
Just last week she was at a dog park in San Diego CA ( we dont' have them here in Baja.. so it's a rarity that she goes) She was enjoying the other owners and all the dogs( except for a Dane who drooled on her " Euuwww ") when she spotted a homeless person half a football field away. She took off like a jet and charged the fence ( which is NOT good DogPark manners, we know.. but it's never happened and recall went on deaf ears) For some reason, of all the people strolling by on the other side of the fence this one was not a good guy and she knew it.. The other owners praised her to the sky and from then on out she was the heroine of the dog park. Will never know what set her off... but we trust her instincts and feel very protected.( O yeah.. she also protects us from bunnies. LOL)

I was taking a shower one night at about 1am, so missed all the excitement. But from what the police and emergency vet could figure out someone with a knife (the kind that flip out, I dont know the proper term) scaled my fence with the intention of Lord knows what. At the time, there was a small - medium doggie door installed from my when my mom had the house (She has Boston Terriers...) Well, somehow, Ming heard him and got through the doggie door and proceeded to bring him down. All the while being stabbed multiple times, (in the chest, shoulder, side and hip.) But despite the pain she must have been in, she did not come back in until he was gone. At that point, I was just getting out of the shower, and saw her standing by the sliding glass back door waiting to come in. The emergency vet is maybe 1.5 minutes away, got her there, they gave her blood and did repairs to all the damage. She'll always be my hero, and I had only gotten her about 6 months before. Will never feel unsafe again.
On a side note- the cops never caught the guy, but if I ever do, he needs to worry.
