The Doberdor is a mongrel dog, a cross between the Doberman Pinscher and Labrador Retriever breeds. Intelligent, protective and loyal, these puppies inherit some of the best qualities of both their parents. You can find these mixed breed dogs in breed-specific shelters and rescues, so remember to always adopt. Doberdors make excellent watchdogs, and quickly become loyal and protective of the humans in their lives. But they are also a very playful breed that requires lots of exercise and playtime. They are not suitable for flat living; ideally they should have a secure, fenced yard and access to off-leash parks. Doberdors also have a reputation for being a little difficult to train, so experienced dog owners do best with this breed.


Doberdor are mixed breed dogs. The most common colours of the Doberdor are black, chocolate, tan and fawn. The dog’s coat can be solid – inherited from its Labrador Retriever side – or patterned like the Doberman.The Doberdor is not a flat dog – ideally you will be living in a place with an enclosed backyard and a large park nearby.Doberdors require much more exercise than your average dog. You’ll be looking at two or three walks per day, for a total of more than an hour of exercise. Doberdors get along well with children, although they should be socialised from an early age. As with all dogs, children should be supervised and taught to interact properly with pets.


The history of the Doberman includes a review of the histories of its parent breeds. The dog was invented by a tax collector who also worked in a local kennel. The Labrador Retriever originated in Canada, where it was first bred as a hunting and retrieving dog. Today, the Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular dogs in the U.S. The Doberdor has become known as a designer dog breed, but many of them, unfortunately, end up in shelters. So consider contacting local rescue groups and shelters if you are thinking of adding the Doberdor to your home.
