I got my first Dobie from a very reputable breeder a little over a year ago and I'm extremely happy I did! Mine is a male and he's most definitely the sweetest and most friendly dog I've ever had. Both with people and other animals. He absolutely loves cats and other dogs. Him and my 3 and a half year old Whippet/Shepherd mix are the best of friends. In the 14 months I've had him, he's never shown an ounce of anger or aggression. He's just a happy go lucky kind of guy. Anybody else own Dobermans or have any positive experiences with them? I would love to hear stories.
