The en­forcer

FHM (Philippines) - - VERGE -

Do you want a guard dog, or do you want a com­pan­ion? Mel Tua­son, a breeder and cur­rent owner of 10 Dober­mans, tells us that Dober­mans aren’t ac­tu­ally as ag­gres­sive as they’re made out to be. De­spite their mas­sive size, hard­ened face, and fright­en­ingly ath­letic physique, it’s still ul­ti­mately up to the owner to mould their tem­per­a­ment.

Hid­den po­ten­tial: So how do you keep a Dober­man from try­ing to mur­der you in your sleep? Tua­son says you should give them their own, per­sonal space, and that own­ers should be “mild” when han­dling them. “Never hurt them. Just be­cause they’re a Dober­man doesn’t mean they’re ag­gres­sive.”

If you're a gamer, you'll rec­og­nize the breed as the Res­i­dent Evil video game and film fran­chise's zom­bie dogs. The fic­tional hounds are ac­tu­ally Dober­mans, which have been in­fected by the T-virus.
