Why are Dobermann so unpopular in India, particularly in Delhi.?
Why are Dobermann so unpopular in India, particularly in Delhi. I hardly find any takers of this breed. People are mad about pug, Saint Bernard, Mastiff. Pug has a short mouth thus it tends to over-heat in warm climates. The breed is a big no for countries like India unless you can offer air conditioned environment. Saint Bernard are for cold climates, not for hot climates like India. Mastiffs drool a lot, live no longer than 8-9 year.
My friend bought a Lab, thinking it's a gaurd dog, while Lab are not a guard dog, they are retrievers not bred to bite or scare away people. I wonder why people are so naive when it comes to selecting a breed. The only best gaurd dogs suitable for India climate are GSD, Dobermann Pincher and Rottweillers. I remember, my neighbours daughter got so mad about vodafone add that she bought a pug for 25 thousand but the breed developed a serious ailment and demanded a surgery. They definetly didn't take this into consideration before. If one do want a small dog, then Spitz are perhaps the best. If one wants more showy dog then Lhasa Apso are the best as long as they are groomed. They live more than other breeds.
