  Historical Doberman Pictures
Notice the strong, thick necks on these early Dobermans. These were dogs bred for protection - and a strong neck is essential for any dog required to bite and fight. 
Today's show bred Doberman is bred with a special emphasis for a thin, "stove-pipe" neck which is thought to be "elegant".  It robs the dog of any real strength in bitework.
