Dog Aggressively Grabs Baby, Then The Reason Why Becomes Clear.
He Was Acting Odd
She was totally surprised. She had only owned the dog for a few days, but she was certain that he was a gentle creature and was no threat to her loved ones. Yet, he was handling her child roughly. She was about to act, but then she saw something that made her reconsider. And as soon as she realized what was happening, she was stunned that she had considered doing something unthinkable.
Adding A New Family Member

Catherine Svilicic and her husband had a baby girl named Charlotte. A few months later, they both concluded that they wanted a new family member. But instead of making a new baby, they decided to give Charlotte a baby brother or sister who walked on four legs. This would give her a companion who was loyal, while teaching her about caring for something. But they wanted a specific type of dog.
Adopt Or Buy?

The Svilicics wanted a dog with specific characteristics, so they considered buying a puppy straight from a breeder. But they also wanted to give a dog who didn’t have a home and opportunity of living in a home with a loving family. Eventually, they heard of a rescue dog who had come from a breeder. But the issue was that this particular breed had earned a bad rep for having a behavior that was unpredictable and aggressive.
He Came With Risks
The pooch was an adult male Doberman Pinscher. This type of animal was bred for personal protection, so ferocity and aggression were in his DNA. Those traits are certainly reflected in the breed’s reputation despite the fact that modern breeders have bred them to be a bit friendlier and docile. But clearly, it doesn’t help that most Dobermans are police or guard dogs. But Catherine discovered that there was something very unique about this dog.

Kerry Kinder, the owner of the Doberling Boarding Kennels in Atherton, Australia, had bred this Doberman. She had sold the pooch to someone, but later discovered that he was being abused so she got him back. His outlook wasn’t so good. He had broken ribs, which suggested he had been hit, and he was starving. Things were so bad that the vets considered putting the dog to sleep. But then Catherine came into his life.
