    The Doberman was taken in after he was found wandering around Birmingham New Street station on his own. Believing he was a stray, the volunteers took him on a trip to the vets only to discover he had been microchipped, tracing him back to Huddersfield - a three-hour journey. But the chip had no contact number for the canine’s owners, so the now-homeless pooch has been taken in by Hilbrae Kennels in Telford, Shropshire. Volunteers at the kennels believe the clever dog must have somehow managed to swap trains at Manchester Piccadilly, which link Birmingham New Street with Huddersfield.

The Doberman was emaciated and carrying an infection and after some emergency care was in a position to be reunited with owners the Walsh family from Kells. Ace was identified because he had been Microchipped at only a few weeks old. However he was taken from the family's back garden on 16th December 2015. "We had a tearful reunion and we are looking forward to...

    Large dogs are held in high esteem for a variety of reasons: for their large stature, their strength, and their protective nature and keen watchdog abilities. If you're looking for a reliable canine defender, it's important to consider not only the physical attributes of a dog breed, but its temperament, as well. Using data from Animal Planet, PetBreeds found the 29 best guard dogs and ranked them by popularity, according to the 2014 AKC popularity rankings. (Three dog breeds that had no ranking were put at the bottom of the list.) Criteria used included that the breed must possess a...

    A dog is recovering after receiving deep scratches and lacerations on its body and neck during a scuffle with a bear in a residential neighborhood in between Leesburg and Eustis. Kim Givens said she had let her Doberman named Bo out in the backyard of her home in the Wedgewood subdivision before they went to bed late Aug. 8. She said about 11:30 p.m. she saw Bo bolt from her backyard and go down the hill her home sits on. She opened the sliding-glass door and heard loud growling and "horrible mauling sounds." Kim Givens' Doberman named Bo happily playing...
  • Dispelling the Doberman Myth: Friendly Family Pets or Fearsome Foes?

    06/18/2015 8:00:40 PM PDT · by Altariel · 105 replies
    In family movies featuring dogs, Doberman Pinschers are often cast as the baddies. Why not? After all, they’re large with mask-like features, and if they’ve had their ears cropped, they can look a little frightening. In real life, Dobermans are often employed in police and security industries because of their intelligence, readiness to work and their inherent strength. This dichotomy has led to wild public misconception about the breed – and their role in family life. Ready to separate the facts from the fiction about Dobermans? Here are the myths you may have heard, and the truth behind them. Myth:...

    Every little girl loves playing dress-up and enjoys giving makeovers. Normally the person getting the make-over is usually the mother, an aunt, or a doll—but in this case the one getting a make-over is the dog. We all know that doberman are usually potentially dangerous and vicious dogs. But this very tough-looking doberman is such a doll. He enjoys getting his nails done by an adorable little girl. You can see him sitting patiently as the girl paints all the nails of his front paws in different colors. This video shows the lesser-known, softer side of the breed, and just...

    BOSTON (WHDH) - A dog who ingested nearly three wrist watches is recovering after undergoing a procedure to remove the pieces at the MSPCA's Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. Mocha, a 5-year-old Isabella Doberman, was taken to the facility after her owners found pieces of watches on the floor of their home. "She had somehow managed to open a drawer, go inside and pull out three watches and some assorted pieces of leather jewelry and she ate them," said her owner, Jeff Courcelle, who rushed her to the hospital. "They took an X-Ray and she looked mechanical inside. There...
  • When You Put A Doberman On A Playground Slide, The Results Are Not Always Predictable [Video]

    An owner of two Dobermans thought it would be amusing to take the dogs to a playground and see what happens when he put them on a slide there. Somewhere in the end, a lesson was learned. Maybe. Don’t worry, no one was hurt — neither human nor canine — in making this video, which is going viral today. But it does show that a Doberman can exercise basic common sense. Well, sort of. “It was my stepson 23 yrs old that went up the steps & had the dogs follow him up and PERSUADED THEM TO SLIDE,” wrote Sherry...

    A multimillionaire CEO has been caught on newly-released surveillance video repeatedly kicking a puppy.

    Abandoned six-month-old doberman puppy, Atticus, is being given a new life after being hit by a car on Scioto Trail and being rescued by a group of local good samaritans. Portsmouth resident Lisa Potts was sitting at home when she heard what she thought was a child crying outside. She ran to investigate and saw the young doberman in the middle of the street, and her two new neighbors running towards him, stopping traffic in his lane. Potts went to check on the dog, running between the many lanes of busy traffic, while a neighbor watched her daughter. “There were...

    A Pennsylvania woman on vacation in Florida took a tip from two dolphins to save a lost Doberman Pinscher that got stranded on a sandbar. When Audrey D'Alessandro and her husband, Sam, walked out of their home on Marco Island, near Naples, Fla., to go fishing, "we saw these two dolphins, and they were splashing and making this big commotion" in a canal behind their vacation home, she said. Although it is not uncommon to see dolphins swimming through the canal on their way to the Gulf of Mexico, Audrey D'Alessandro said that this time, "they were just there, in...

    This purebreed is pure hero. A Doberman pinscher competing in the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City next week is being credited with saving his Staten Island owner’s life nearly three years ago by detecting her breast cancer. Troy, then a 4-month-old puppy, alerted Diane Papazian, 56, to a dangerous lump in her breast while they were cuddling in bed, said her husband, Harry. Diane thought it was peculiar how persistent the pooch was in his nuzzling, leading her to conduct a self-examination and to discover the lump. She underwent a double mastectomy and chemotherapy to beat...

    Zeus was on the living room couch when the fire broke out. That's where firefighters found the unconscious, adult male Doberman when they entered a home in the 600 block of Hartford Drive off Victoria Road in College Station Friday and immediately provided him with oxygen. He was taken to the Wellborn Road Veterinary Medical Center for treatment for smoke inhalation and will remain there for at least one night, said Dr. Brittany Frank, the veterinarian on his case. While Zeus has improved since arriving at the medical center and is able to walk on his own, Frank said he's...

    He's a male Blue point Doberman, rescued from the animal shelter at a very young adult age. He's actually grown a bit over the 2 years we've had him. Well he's starting to have some biting problems now after 2 years. He's bitten my sister (the owner) 3 times breaking skin each time, bruising bone and requiring antibiotics. These have happened to her at night when he's sleeping with her and her husband. Seemed it was some type of sleep problem from being woke up from dead of sleep. Now he's bitten me. I've had direct contact with the dog...

    Dublin resident Jocelyn Mullins fell in love with Doberman pinschers because they're intelligent, energetic and true companions. Those traits, coupled with a remarkable pedigree, have helped boost her dog, Fifi, to the pinnacle of the show-dog circuit. The sturdy, barrel-chested dog with bright eyes and trademark pink collar -- studded with jewels, of course -- may be the most accomplished Doberman of all time. In three years of competition, she's racked up 71 Best in Show prizes, and in international competition she's been named the best in her breed three years running. "No Doberman in history has been able to...
