Since the invention of money, one thing has been certain all the time and everywhere: the tax collector is never a welcome visitor. In some specific regions of 19th-century Germany, the reception was completely hostile. Everyone was also aware that he is a taximan and dog breeder Louis Doberman, who belongs to the city of Apolda. He hoped to breed as a dependable but reliable defender to accompany him in his time.
Doberman's handiwork was a larger, less sophisticated version of the per that today bears his name (the extra ""n"", which was dropped somewhere along the way). Historians have noted the Black and Tan Terrier (precursor to the Manchester Terrier), the German per, the Rottweiler, and the smooth-coated herring dogs, among the components of the new Doberman breed.
The ""tax collector's dog"" quickly gained an international reputation as a Working Dog. The Dobbermans have excelled in police and military K-9 duty, as medical dogs and service dogs for the disabled, as search and rescue teams, and in competitive dog sports. During World War II, the American Marine Corps Dobermans of the Pacific brought the breed great fame. Twenty-five of these loyal ""Devil Dogs"" were killed during the Battle of Guam. Feeling good with his muscles and with pride, the Doberman Pinschers are a consistent winner in the ring. In 1952 and '53, a dog named Storm won the Best of Westminster at the show. Doberman Pinscher came to the AKC in 1908 and has since ruled as one of America's most popular working breeds.
