Default Hey! Dobie people! Is he purebred?

This is a new Doberman (mix?) we got into rescue about two weeks ago. We are thinking that he's purebred. His ears and tail are natural. His people used to keep him in a crate for 22 hours a day and then he was dumped at the pound because the daughter moved and he was "the daughter's dog."



He's a real cutie. His name is mico. Here he is chasing a ball:


Mico is very intelligent, and he likes tennis balls! He seems a little unsure of other dogs, but that's probably due to being undersocialized.
So, what think? Mixed or purebred? You decide!

Looks purebred to me, just probably not of the best breeding. He's a handsome dog!

He doesn't look far off from the natural pures I've seen.
He is very gorgeous, I LOVE that tail! I prefer natural to anything else.

He could be a purebred. His head is a little on the flat side on top and his croup, the area just above the tail and up to his back is slopping. Normally, the tail comes straight off the end of the back bone....pretty level. But like RD said, it could be poor breeding. Otherwise, he looks VERY Doberman and very cute. Congratulations on your new addition. Poor thing...being locked up like that so much. He is lucky to have a good, new home. I bet he's an extra sensative one. I just see it in his face. Gut feeling. LOL. He's adorable. Have fun with him.

He looks like he could be pure to me also, just poorly bred. He's a very handsome dog either way though.

Well, he doesn't have a home yet. But I'm sure he will soon. I forgot to mention that those pics were taken in the excercise pen at the rescue shelter. I'm sure he'll be adopted within the next couple of weeks. For some reason young dobes don't ever wait long.

Oh, I thought you had adopted him. If he's a nice boy, he should be adopted. He does look handsome and sweet. Let us know.

Yes, I would say pure, but just BYB I have actually NEVER seen a Dobe with a natural tail, I have seen them with natural ears, but NEVER a natural, they look like nicer more friendly dogs with eveything natural IMO.
