He is a sweetheart. I know Dobermans already are. But this is one that is super affectionate. He just wants to be on you 24/7. He will thrive in a home where he is an only child or has a female doggie. He LOVES plush toys. Especially the Motorcycle eagle from Bark (he will go home with this one). He is super gentle. A gentle giant. He will allow you to remove the toy from his mouth. You can give him a toy without intentionally hurting you. He does not jump on people. When he runs, he can accidentally hit you on the side. Where he did not calculate enough space to run next to you. If he hits you and you say “ouch” he will look at you sadly. Saying he is sorry. He has no to minimum pulling. The pulling tends to happen when he sees a friend. He typically walks next to you. Waiting for his head scratches. He might be gentle but he is a great watchdog. He will bark at anything or anyone near your property. Letting you know of the “danger”. However if you tell him “it’s okay”, he stops and continues on with life.
