Hi guys, I am new to the world of dogs and I have a question that has been troubling me for a while. I recently came across Dobermans and although I know they can grow to be very large, they somehow seem smaller than other dogs of the same size. I am trying to figure out if it's just a perception or if there is something about their physique that actually makes them look smaller. Can someone help me understand why this might be the case? Any insights or personal experiences you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Hey there, I'm also a Doberman owner, and I've noticed that their appearance can change depending on how they carry themselves. When my Doberman is relaxed, she seems smaller because her muscles aren't as defined and her ears are relaxed. However, when she gets excited or is on alert, her entire body tenses up and she appears much larger, taller and more intimidating. I think this is partly due to their build and partly due to their behavior. Dobermans have a unique combination of athleticism, strength, intelligence, loyalty, and protectiveness that makes them stand out from other breeds. So to answer your question, it's a combination of their build, behavior, and other factors that can make them appear smaller or larger than they actually are.
