I want to back up what falnfenix said. She said it way better than I would have.
Dobermans are a breed apart. I have owned them for 44 years. A well bred, well trained Dobe, is IMO, is just about the perfect dog, in just about every sense of the word "perfect".
i've said it before and I will reiterate: A badly bred, poorly raised Doberman can be the dog from hell. I am referring to temperament, health issues and incompatibly with both humans and dogs.
The amount of time spent researching and, perhaps, the upfront dollars spent, combined with an understanding of what the breed requires and following through, will allow you to end up with probably the most rewarding human/pet experience of your life.
I, for one, am really glad that you reached out to a knowledgable community.
Best to you in your search for the right puppy.
