I am so pleased with my dogs instincts to keep us safe, though I have to watch as it has proven she will go after people , other dogs, will take on wildlife and removed a black bear from my chicken coop last night . So I do have to watch that I am not careless thinking she will be okay with people , anywhere, because she has snapped into defensive mode . I made the mistake in the past saying she was okay with people and dogs, well selectively . So now I more careful.

Just a note. I used to breed and show StBernards. One of the breeds in their past are Tibetan mastiffs. You are right about them being mushes with the family but very protective. My Saints seemed to have limits though. One day friends came over and our two daughters were fighting over a toy. The other Dad stepped in and grabbed each girl by the wrist. My saint stepped in quickly and grabbed the arm that was holding our girls wrist. She was gentle but firm and as soon as he let go so did she. I was pleased with her response. If they are like saints though they won’t guard your stuff. Only if you are in it like your truck.
The reason I wore though is with pups we removed back dewclaws early. The way we could tell they harkened back to Tibetans was that some had back double dewclaws. Hope your pup has had them removed. They are fleshy enough that if they catch on something and rip the dog can breed out. Enjoy him!

I didn’t proofread well. I meant to say the dog could bleed out.

I just wanted to pipe in that Dobermans are/were specifically bred to be personal protection dogs. You don't need to train them that way (although it is essential to train them in obedience, like any dog), it's their natural instinct. They are indoor dogs and will only protect property if it's their space or you/family that is threatened. I have a dobie, and they are very intelligent, great with kids, don't shed much, and most are friendly yet observant. The only things are that they are short-haired, so not hardy for our winters, and there are some health problems that run in the breed that could cause issues over long-term SHTF.
