There are many theories as to the origin of this breed:
What is absolutely certain is Doberman comes from a cross between mixed dogs German Pinscher. These mixed dogs were the result of crosses between greyish blue females of dubious origin, and some dogs “black and Tan” whose origin was, in turn, the result of the cross between a dog Bernese mountain cowbird and a dog Shepherd. After these crosses, intervened in the formation of the race a Manchester terrier and a black female Greyhound. These arguments can be drawn contradiccione, as the same people are that discussed this, which claimed a relationship of blood between the Manchester terrier and the Doberman.
Possibly genetic studies might someday give more accurate information on the origin of the Doberman.
Also have been named as possible involved breeds: dog pastor of Beauce, Rottweiler and German Pointers.
