  • A lot of colour variations ranging from the copper tone to dark chocolate tone are possible.
  • These dogs have a shiny dark reddish-brown coat.
  • These dogs also have tan or rust markings all over their body, but because of the similar tone the contrast isn’t as rich as in their Black counterparts.

Genetic Makeup

This coloration occurs when the dominant black gene has both recessive alleles but the dilution gene (B) has at least one dominant allele i.e., bbDD, bbDd.

Pure Red or Chocolate Doberman

  1. A pure Red Doberman is rarely available and is again discouraged. It suffers from health and temperament issues.
  2. These dogs are often called the Chocolate Doberman because of the dark brownish tone with a hint of red that they exhibit. 
  3. They are known are Brown Doberman in Europe.

If you are enamored by these lovely chocolate doberman’s go ahead and get one of these pups for yourself now.

I'm Jason Morgan, founder and author at I just love Dobermans - they're the best dogs in the world! I got my first Doberman, Max, when I was just a pup myself. Max was my loyal friend and protector for over ten years. Since then, I've been working hard to learn everything I can about these amazing dogs. I started DobermanWiki as a place to share all that knowledge with other Doberman enthusiasts like me. My goal is to help every Doberman owner have the best possible relationship with their dog. I'm always happy to chat with other Doberman owners, so feel free to reach out anytime!
