Doberman Pinschers are well known as an intelligent, alert, and tenaciously loyal companion and guard dog. Personality varies a great deal between each Doberman, but if taken care of and trained properly they tend to be loving and devoted companions. The Doberman is driven, strong, and sometimes stubborn. Owning one requires commitment and care, but if trained well, they can be wonderful family dogs. Unlike some breeds like the German Shepherd, the Doberman is not always automatically eager to please, but with consistency they can be easy to train and will learn very quickly. As with all dogs, if properly trained, they can be excellent with children. They adapt quickly, though they pay attention to consistency and value attention.

Dogfighting is a "contest" in which two dogs specifically bred, conditioned, and trained to fight are placed in a small arena enclosed by plywood walls to fight each other for the spectators' entertainment and gambling. The injuries inflicted and sustained by dogs participating in dogfights are frequently severe, even fatal. The American pit bull terrier-type dogs used in the majority of these fights have been specifically bred and trained for fighting and are unrelenting in their attempts to overcome their opponents.
Effects of Dog Fighting
The effects of dogfighting are widespread and go beyond brutality to animals. As in many illegal gambling operations, dogfighting attracts other crimes, notably drugs, money laundering, racketeering and illegal firearms. A sheriff’s officer in Ohio said that 64 out of 65 dogfighting raids he had revealed drugs.
