Dakar represents a unique opportunity in so many ways. The most obvious is that as a European Doberman Dakar’s ears are cropped and his tail is docked. The cropping and docking of ears and tails in Europe has not been allowed for over ten years. Then comes the fact that Dakar is excellent in protection. By excellent we don’t mean by Doberman standards (which is very low), we mean excellent by any standard including ours! Dakar was raised in an apartment and is calm in everyday life. He is extremely friendly as well as great with children. As at 90+ pounds Dakar is quite the deterrent.
