No its totally wrong! Dobermans are not mean its only the people who dont know about them think they are mean.. infact they are very good!! It also depends how the owner keeps it! Sometimes they are mean when owners make them.

totally NOT true. my doberman acts so sweet and cuddly when around family members and around us, she's not intimidating at all. the only time she gets really mean and scary is when someone she doesnt know shows up at the gate. she also hates little kids who tease her. just shows how protective she is of her humans. lol

Dobs are not mean they are intelligent. Because they are so smart they can be taught a wide variety of things, from shaking your hand to climbing ladders, obedience, agility and protection. Unfortunatly there are some people that misuse their inteligence. This also happens with other outstanding and intelligent breeds like, german shepherd, pit bull/terriers and Rotties. It is unfair to the loving loyal breeds that get a bad reputation because of minority of owners who direct their intelligence in a wrong direction.

Anyone who thinks Dobes are mean has never had one. I have a beautiful black and tan female who is my velcro dog. She sticks to me all the time. She is very friendly to strangers unless they give her a reason not to be. Dobes are one of the best breeds for a loyal, loving companion.

doberman pinschers are friendly dogs if well socialized, trained properly, and well exercised. a poorly-socialized, un-trained, and under-exercised or abused doberman might be more on the aggressive side. but in general, dobermans are protective, loyal, and very friendly toward their friends and family.

What do you think? To add to the previous posts, any dog can be "mean". I've ran into some mean Chihuahuas and Dachshunds. Because of this, I really hate little dogs. Its actually been proven that those two dogs are the top biters, NOT Dobermans and Pits.
