I have been considering adopting a Doberman as a guard dog for my home. I live alone and have had a few instances where I felt unsafe in my own house due to break-ins in the neighborhood. I have read that Dobermans are great guard dogs and will protect their owner and their territory at all costs.
However, I want to know for sure if a Doberman will be able to attack an intruder if necessary. I don't want to adopt a dog that won't be able to defend me or my home in case of an emergency. Can anyone who has experience with Dobermans or other guard dogs share their insights on this?
Thank you in advance for your help!
