My cousin's Rottweiler was absolutely disgusting, ICK! Drool everywhere, farted all the time, messy, stinky dog. BLECK!

I think the GSD is the best breed in the world but that is pretty much based off of my GSD. He is a terrific dog and everything I ever wanted so I think that is the best breed but Dalmatians are my 2nd favorite and Dobermans are my 3rd favorite. I would like to get a female Doberman in the future.

IMO all 3 are very intelligent breeds, they all require a good amount of exercise although Dobies and Dals often require more exercise than a GSD, they were all bred for the purpose of guarding whether it was sheep, horses, stage coaches, equipment or people. They all have a strong bonding instinct with their people, all 3 are velco breeds that need to be wherever you are and all 3 are powerful breeds.

When my friend and I get our dogs together it is the perfect pack, 2 Dobermans, a GSD and a Dalmatian. They are great together.
