The Doberman Shepherd is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Doberman Pinscher and the German Shepherd. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Zephyr the Doberman Shepherd mix breed as an adolescent dog in the snow wearing her red coat—"Zephyr is a companion dog to Blitzen, a Vizsla / Weimaraner mix. When our old dog passed away, we wanted a friend for our Vizmaraner. Zephyr's mother was a Doberman Pinshcer and her father was an AKC German Shepherd. She has been great with learning and listening to orders, though has been a bit of a challenge at times. She always wants to have a job and something to do. She loves playing with her 'brother' Blitzen, and she adores our daughter. She also puts up with the cats, but doesn't seem to care much one way or the other. She is spayed, but otherwise unaltered. She has her full tail and her ears have been left alone."

Cairo the Doberman Shepherd mix breed dog
"This is Cairo. His name refers to Cairo, Egypt because he looks like the half-man/half-jackal from Egyptian images with his big ears. Cairo was DNA tested to validate his breed(s). He was confirmed to be Doberman Pincher Level #2 and German Shepherd Dog Level #2. So from the results it is safe to say both of his parents were purebreds. NO other breeds were detected. He was a rescue dog, but based on his appearance he does not appear to be an accident. When I got him from the rescue he was 76 lbs. and they estimated that he was 9-11 months old. He has many traits and features that point to the Doberman breed (coloring, coat and feet) and others that lend themselves to the German Shepherd (tail, ears and intelligence). He weighs a little north of 150 lbs.!!! He is a very gentle but protective dog with an amazingly loving personality. He loves his big old chin scratched! This guy is so tall he can lick the counters without having to get up on his hind legs and can look over a 6-foot fence easily."
