I have recently started researching dog breeds and I've fallen in love with the Doberman Pincher. I love their loyalty, protectiveness, and high energy levels. However, I'm just wondering if there are any other dog breeds out there with a similar personality to that of the Doberman Pincher? I want a dog that is intelligent, loyal, and protective. I also need a dog that can keep up with me on long walks and runs.
I would love to hear from anyone who has experience with different dog breeds and can recommend some that fit my criteria. I appreciate any insights or recommendations you can share. Thank you!
