It’s Puppy Vs. Adult Doberman In This Adorable Video

Poor Dobermans don’t get the best treatment in media. You usually see them as bullies or vicious attack dogs. Truthfully, a properly trained (and properly loved) Doberman Pinscher makes for a loyal family companion. These strong, fearless dogs love being part of a family and want to protect their pack. They were, after all, literally bred to protect people.

A viral video shows the calmer, loving nature of Dobermans. It also shows why they make such good older siblings. A full-grown adult Doberman, Boss, is obviously much larger than tiny puppy Kyra. This simple fact doesn’t seem to bother Kyra though. She just wants to play with him!

Looks like this tiny puppy sees Boss for who he really is, not how he looks. He isn’t scary, he’s a great playmate. He just happens to be a lot larger. Adult male Dobermans can weigh up to almost 100 pounds. Kyra looks like she can’t weigh more than 7 pounds! In just a few years though, she could get all the way up to 77 pounds.

While their playdate appears to be supervised, that doesn’t seem necessary. Boss exhibits an older dog’s patience as Kyra bats at his feet.

Dobermans are intelligent dogs which can sometimes lead to stubbornness. But, if they’re trained and socialized at a young age they end up as loving siblings like Boss. Kyra has a great role model to grow up alongside!

Kyra’s spunk and fearlessness also show how great this breed is. She has no qualms about facing off against a much, much larger dog.
