yep, he is purebred, he looks different, probably because of bad breeding, or you just haven't seen many "Natural Dobies" Which I know you know that there are. But, hes a cutie!! I think Dobies are cute with non-docked tails, and natural ears. Sure, a Hound Dobie!! (you know what I mean, right?)

I would say purebred but I am not a "Dobie" person.

One thing I would say is you keep him in nice shape, His coat looks great.

How old?

Aw, he is so cute! And he looks like a purebred to me... but I'm also not a dobie person.

I think his intake sheet says he's about 8 months, maybe a year. He's still a pup. You can't tell, but he's actually a little bit thin, but only a little. I'll let you know when he gets adopted!

He definitely looks purebred to me. I can't believe his previous owners kept him in a crate 22 hours a day! They should be charged with animal cruelty.

He's beautiful! And I wouldn't say he looks too thin...dobermans are very very lean dogs, and it's better to keep ANY dog on the lean side as opposed to "chunky." He definitely looks like a purebred to me, but I agree with the others about poor breeding. Someone will be lucky to have him!

Behind his last rib looks a little sunken in and it's hard to tell in the photo, but his back bone appears to be too pronounced. He looks like he could really use some muscle tone. Probably from being squished in a crate all that time, his muscles have atrophied. I bet with some good exercise and nutritious food, he'd get in much better condition. I don't think he looks terribly thin....maybe just a tad.

Dobermans are not suppose to be outgoing and friendly. They're usually not. Correct Doberman temperament is to be somewhat suspicious of strangers. So, if the cropping and docking causes people to be somewhat wary, that is a plus IMO. I wouldn't want someone running up to my Doberman, thinking he was a big, friendly, outgoing hound. It could be dangerous. They're a protection dog and are extremely observant and sensative about their environment. Cropped or uncropped, they're still Dobermans. Of course, they don't all adhere to the standard.

This dog may or may not be purebred. A purebred is only determined when there is a record of ancestory. He looks like he could well be purebred, but you'll never know for sure. It is inaccurate to say that he is definitely a purebred.

We at the rescue shelter also have an older female Dobie (who's owners dumped her and a friend at the pound because they moved) and this describes her perfectly! When I take her out for a walk, she is always alert and watching everything. She never pays people much mind. That is one reason why it has been hard to adopt her out, people don't like that she doesn't pay attention to them. In fact, the only thing she does pay attention to is cats, and that's because she wants to eat them! I've been walking her for about a year now every Sunday and she doesn't even pay much attention to me. I felt very privileged when she favored me with a lick upon my cheek once.
