I'm considering getting a Doberman as a pet, but I'm a bit concerned about their reputation for being aggressive. I've heard that Dobermans can be protective and loyal to their owners, but I'm wondering if they're naturally aggressive towards people or other animals that they're not familiar with.
I want to make sure that I choose a dog breed that is friendly and safe around both humans and other animals, so any insights or experiences that you can share would be greatly appreciated. Have you owned a Doberman before? Are they generally good-natured, loyal pets, or do they have a tendency to become aggressive?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
