The Doberman in this video LOVES McDonald’s hamburgers. His name is Red. Years ago, his fur parent posted a video about their drive-thru to McDonald to get Red a hamburger after earning the last leg for his RE (Rally Excellent) title. And as a tradition, his mom celebrates his success with him by going to McDonald’s for a couple of hamburgers. Both hamburgers are for him! The video today is after a trip to the doctor to reward him for being so good at the vet. He had to fast that morning before the trip.
Notice how Red does not take a bite. He takes the entire burger! And it’s gone in seconds.
Characteristics of the Doberman Pincher
A little tidbit about the Doberman Pincher. According to the American Kennel Club, this breed originates in Germany around 1890. The breed is named after a tax collector named Louis Doberman Apolda. He wanted to have a medium sized dog who can be both a companion and a guard dog.
Are Doberman Pinchers easy to train?
Not all Dobermans have the same temperament. However, the breed’s temperament (the correct breed temperament, that is) is trustworthy with the master’s children and friends. They are affectionate and obedient. Loyal too. Very trainable. That’s why they are trained to work as police dogs.
AKC writes that earlier Dobermans were rather sharp and aggressive. However, today’s Dobermans are decreasing in sharpness. Perhaps this is deliberate in the breeding strategy. AKC also mentions that Dobermans are not meant to live outside the house alone. And they aren’t meant to live in a kennel. However, if you were to have 2 Dobermans, AKC recommends that you do not have 2 adult male Dobermans together. You can read more about the Doberman here.
Enjoy watching this dog savor (quickly) a McDonald’s hamburger!
