Delilah & Clark Doberman with be parents end of April
These are Amazing Parents! Clarke, formally Hoytts Invincible Man of Steel CGC RN, and Delilah formally Hoytts Gift from the Heart CGC BN, together represent the tenth generation of their respective Line and create our "Next Generation!" In the You Tube video above, we caught this pup just as he was coming down from a jump over the rock behind him.
This video was taken a week before their crop. At 1:40 on You Tube, you will see the pup, and you will see why, from the first, these dogs called Dobermans, had their ears cropped. If you never knew why the crop, this picture says it all.
This new breed, in the late 1800's, was to be a personal protector. The tail was docked and the ears cropped ( about 1/3 to 1/2 removed ). While defending their master, an aggressor could not grab ears or tail! In time, even the coat length was part of this new breeds attributes.
