it is easier for the ones to fear and complain and expect you to to bend to their irrational reactions, these types would have to be spoonfed the realities of a Dobe with a happy song to boot and still the next day you would be back where you started.
Be proud of your choice!

I vaguely remember the Doberman gang movie. What I remember more are seeing Rottweilers used in quite a few movies back when the Omen, devil movies were popular. I rarely watch scary movies now, so not sure what's being used. I was just surprised by the reactions of some adults, not kids though. They and their friends already love her. I have "puppy/dog babysitters" already volunteering and wanting to set up play dates with their dogs, which is funny since she's not here till next Sat. But my daughters have been sending pictures too all their friends. My own mother, who's mostly had little dogs, is happy for me and has already offered to dog sit. She was never afraid, and she's almost 70.

Alot of criminals don't like Dobes either bcuz they know what they are capable of and some of their insane instincts in detecting their evil ways.
Dont get me wrong i never want my Nubis to fight my battles as he has never been trained in that arena however i have. He is my deterrent and early warning detection system against all evil doers.
I have since he was a pup, played "play fight" with him and i know what he is capable of so i am sure if fear was running thru his veins that soft muzzle control would be out the window.
Nubis (Anubis), 3 times a charm.

Lil pup Keno
Dobies are not the ONLY breed as the bad guy in movies tho... Check out,, Cujo,,, the breed,,Atomic Dog,,Devil Dog,,,Lucky,, Play Dead,,, I could go on.. Those movies we're portrayed by GSD,, or Rotties.. And ppl still LOVE those breeds. I think the cropped ears are imposing at 1st glance..

Asmit said it well, you should expect some ignorant backlash owning a breed used for protection. Practically every dog breed will have someone lobbing you ignorant comments, be it poodles or dobes or labs. At least, in most areas, it doesn't translate to legislation against the right to own one.

As its been said, I really think it depends on the person you're dealing with. I've only owned one Dobe, but it's been love since. My mother was totally against it, she'd seen the aggression in movies and heard all the rumors and it kept with her, but once we had our pup and she saw how energetic and lovable she was her whole view changed.
I often took Mochi [my pup] for walks around our downtown square, one day a guy was approaching us, saw she was a Dobe, and quickly hopped on the other side of the small fence lining the side walk asking if she bites. At this point she was maybe 5 months old and had her natural ears. I gave him a simple no, which I dont think he believed, but I didnt feel it was right to inform him that if my dog DID bite, that little fence wouldn't have stopped her.
The funny part is that in the same area there was a father and his very small daughter walking, and he asked if his daughter could pet Mochi, of course I said yes. Now we all know how Dobes are energetic, especially the pups, so I kept my hand on her collar to make sure she wouldn't accidently knock the girl over. but Mochi sat pretty and let the girl pet her, and returned the favor with many kisses. I think that in itself speaks a lot for the breed.
Sorry for the long post, but these are the two stories that stick out most in my own experience. Of course there are many more, but anyone with a Doberman knows that lol.
