Cool Dobermans' coats

I recently saw in a FB post a fluffy-coated 'doberman' whose owner rescued the dog and was told it was a doberman. Though it is one color (maybe considered a fawn) it had thick fluff on its toes and entire body. It's ears definitely looked like a springer spaniel. I've owned dobermans back in the 70s and 80s, but I have never come across this. Has anyone else? Though the dog is definitely very sweet, I'm surprised the owner would believe it's full doberman - a purebred. Any thoughts?

I believe some "coated dobermans" have popped up on occasion in rescue and some of our members here have even posted pictures of them. No one has any papers on ancestry so it's very possible they're mixes, but they did look just like dobermans... just fluffy.

There are definitely a few long coated Dobermans out there, and they are in fact, purebred. It's a recessive gene and really uncommon.

See this thread, for example:

I had pictures of a coated Doberman who lived out his life in a permanent rescue facility--they did have papers on that one and he was registered--just coated and a local breed told me about a dog she bred who was from a litter that had a couple of Champions in it and one of the pets came back with his owners when he was about 5 months old asking if he was purebred and their neighbor said he couldn't be because his coat was too long.

He was purebred and his coat was too long--something not noticeable when he as sold--and she gave them a partial refund and told them that she's shave him down three times a year if they brought him to her. They did and she did--I think she said she shaved him with a 3/8" blade. She had a bunch of pictures of him--full coat, half shaved, all the way shaved.

It is a recessive in Dobes and as MeadowCat said--very rare.
