Αποσπασμα ιστορικου αρθρου περι την φυλην, αναφερομενον εις τας απαρχας αυτης, και ειδικοτερα εις τον δημιουργον της Herr Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann. To εν λογω αρθρον βασιζεται εις την γνωστην ιστορικην εργασιαν "The Dobermann Pinscher"- "History and development of the Dobermann Breed" του σπουδαιου εκτροφεως και ιστορικου της φυλης εξ Αλαμανιας, herr Philipp Gruenig, δημοσιευθεν εν ετει 1932 εν Αλαμανια και εν ετει 1939 εις τας Ηνωμενας Πολιτειας της Αμερικης.
Το αρθρον μεταξυ αλλων, αναφερει και την κυριαν επαγγελματικην απασχολησιν του Herr Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, ως "skinner" οπερ σημαινει βεβαιως εις την ημετεραν γλωσσαν "εκδορευς".
Προτιθεμαι οπως πραγματωσω την μεταφρασιν του παρακατω αρθρου εις την Ελληνικην λιαν συντομως. Εως τοτε το παραδιδω εις τους ημετερους Αγγλομαθεις προς μελετην:
"Herr Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann (1834-1891) was a tax collector & dogcatcher /skinner for the state of Thuringia, Germany and had a second job as night watchman. As a dogcatcher, he could choose the best dogs for his purpose. He was concerned with character rather than conformation. His requirement was to create a watchful, sharp, brave and intelligent dog. He wanted a guard dog with a strong mouth, a good nose, courage, hardness nd a highly developed protective instinct. We know he succeeded. From the beginning, his dogs were known regionally as "Dobermann's Hunde". They gained a solid reputation for harsh strength of character and an ability to hunt, bite and kill vermin. Herr Dobermann crossed several types of dogs but did not keep records (there were no pure bred dogs at that time) and there is little agreement on the origins of the dobermann.
Herr Dobermann's son tells us his father had a clever and fearless dog named "Schunpp" who he later mated with a very keen protection [CENSORED] named Bismark (later called Bisart). Bisart's puppy's were black with rust markings. One named "Pinko" had a natural bob tail and produced some blue puppies. Otto Goeller ,a later breeder (photo below) who knew Herr Dobermann, claimed the foundation was a mongrel named "Schnuppe" (a grey smooth coated dog seated in the photo) mated to a Butchers dog. Goeller later claimed the German Shepherd dog, short haired gun dog, the Dane and the German Pinscher played a role.
A German dog magazine article dated 1898 states "At the end of the 1860's, the owner of a gravel pit at Apolda called Dietsch had a blue-grey bitch, a sort of Pinscher which he mated with a black butcher's dog. The sire already had the characteristic tan markings and was a cross between a sheep dog and a butcher's dog. Herr Dobermann, a skinner who unfortunately died too early, crossed the issue of these two dogs, which became good guard dogs, with German Pinschers. That is the origin of today's Dobermann"
In 1901, Richard Strebel (German authority on canine matters) wrote "It is doubtful if the Dobermann Pinscher is a true Pinscher, it should probably be classified more as a sheep dog". In 1933 the German Dobermann club investigated the origins of the breed and decided the main ancestor was the German Pinscher. But in 1947 Herr Gruenig wrote the Dobermann probably descended more from the Beauceron because the German Pinscher is not similar body structure or behaviour and it would not be possible to raise the average shoulder height from 40 to 70cm in only thirty years.
However "dobermann like" dogs (referred to as the "Thueringen breed") were around Apolda before Herr Dobermann began breeding and these were created by crossing German Pinchers and Sheepdogs. Beaucerons are known to be in Apolda in those days and it is also possible they were ancestors of the Butchers dogs. The Butchers dogs were not purebred Some early Dobermann closely resembled Butchers dogs and some resembled Rottweilers.
Max Kuensler wrote in 1925 that the sheep dog, the Weimeraner and the German Pinscher were involved but certainly no Rottweillers or Terriers were known in Apolda at that time. Most agree the Thueringin Shepherd (sheepdog), Butchers Dog, German Pincher & Beauceron were available and some experts include the black and tan terrier. Interestingly, the best authorities on the Rottweiler confirm that so called Butchers dogs were their common ancestor.
Initially the guarding qualities and keeness on game posed some hindrance to the breed's popularity but, in 1863 (when he was 29 years old) Herr Dobermann presented his "Dobermann Pinschers" on the first dog market in Apolda Germany with great success. This event became so important that it is officially recorded in the history of the city of Apolda.
It is known that, after Herr Dobermann died, both the Manchester Terrier and the Greyhound were introduced into the dobermann breed."
