I'm currently in the market for a new family pet and I'm torn between adopting a Doberman Pinscher and a Golden Retriever. I have two young children (ages 4 and 8) who are eager to have a dog in the house, but I want to make sure that we choose the right breed for our family.
I've heard that Doberman Pinschers are loyal and intelligent dogs, but they can also be quite protective of their owners. On the other hand, Golden Retrievers are known for their friendly and gentle nature, but can sometimes be prone to health issues.
Can anyone provide any insight or personal experiences with either breed that could help me make a decision? I want to ensure that the dog we adopt will be a good fit for our family and our lifestyle.
Thank you in advance for any advice or recommendations!
