Especially since the foul-mouthed author is in error:
“Dobermans were the pit bulls of the 1990s”
No...they were the “pit bulls” of the 1970s.
I’ve had them for nearly 40 years and lived through all the “killer Dobe” hype.
Rmember that movie that Fred Astaire did in the 1970s called The Dobermans? They fitted those dogs with false teeth to look especially fearsome.
