There's no breed of dog called the king Doberman. Doberman pinschers are medium-to-large dogs, and "king" is one of many terms breeders use to indicate their Dobermans are large. Adult Dobermans will reach 26 to 28 inches in height and should weigh a maximum weight of 88 pounds.

Fact or Fiction

The American Kennel Club makes no reference to a breed called the king Doberman. The word king may simply be attached to a Doberman who is larger than what is standard to the breed -- it does not signify a variation of the breed itself. Breeders and enthusiasts have other terms to describe large Doberman pinschers, including warlock Dobermans, giant Dobermans, superior-size and super-size Dobermans, and even large-boned Dobermans. According to Theresa Mullen of the Doberman Pinscher Club of America Public Education Committee, breeders may use such terminology to garner higher prices for Doberman puppies.
