I have three daughters ages 10, 5, and 3. They love animals, especially dogs. But out of all my girls, I would say my three year old is the one that will probably be a vet someday. She truly loves animals. We have a two bedroom apartment and will be moving on Halloween. We have no pets and haven't had any pets for about 7 years. About 7 years ago, we had a small puppy but my friend ended up taking it to her home since she had a huge yard. We live in a community where we can walk the dog everyday, it's pretty peaceful and there are some dog parks around. The advice that I am looking for, is about the doberman. The thing is, I have heard that they are not good with children. That they don't like being alone with kids. I know as a dog owner, I will have to be responsible and not leave the dog unattended with my kids. But what if I have to run in to get a juice for my girls or run in for 2 minutes? Why is it that people say dobermans are not good for children? I want to do my research before I make the commitment. Dobermans are my dream dogs, they are just so beautiful. My second choice is a rottweiler, which people also talk negative about. I am willing to listen to all advice as harsh as it may sound. What should I expect when getting a Doberman?
