Well I was going to post a question on here, but actually after looking though the thread where people have shown their dogs it's answered itself. It was about the pointy ears - but it looks as if there are a large quantity of 'droopy eared' dobermans out there. We're thinking of a doberman as possibly our next dog - or a rottweiler. Actually, between you and me I would love to find a 'rotterman' if that's what they're called. I personally love the brown ones, so as I'm here I may as well ask a question - is there any differences between the two ? Anything else I should know from you owners that you wished you knew before ?
