The Doberman Diversity Project -- What is It?
The non-profit 501(c)3 Doberman Diversity Project (DDP) grew organically from the frustration of losing so many beloved Dobermans to genetic diseases which have been amplified by decades of traditional inbreeding approaches across the world. The DDP is comprised of a team of licensed veterinarians, canine geneticists from the USA's most respected Universities, and select Individuals from the USA and Europe with experience with, and knowledge about, the Doberman breed.
This global Doberman community is taking an evidence-based approach (merging Endangered Species Preservation Science, Canine Genetics, and Pedigree Analysis) to support research into Doberman genetic disease to support our community's efforts to preserve the genetic diversity that remains and breed the healthiest, longest lived Dobermans possible.
The DDP welcomes all Doberman lovers from across the world, and invites you to join this global effort to make a real difference for our breed. To learn more about this non-profit research project, please visit www.DobermanDiversityProject.ORG.
