There are several other small differences, for example, American toes are shorter and more compact and dewclaws are removed, while they are left with Europeans.
The marking of Europeans (Rust) is darker than that of Americans and Europeans are generally maintained at a higher weight and they are generally more muscular; diluted colours are not accepted among Europeans, so the colors must be very dark (dark black and dark brown), fawn or Isabella are not accepted in the standard.
In the European Union the size of the ears has been illegal for several years and soon in France and Germany it will no longer be possible to breed dogs that have their ears croped (even if they come from a country where it is still standard/legal).
In the United States the standard is still Ear and Tails croped, the size of the tail of European lines (at the time and for countries that still practice it) and that of American lines are supposed to be at the 2nd vertebrae, but we notice that among Americans the tail is always left longer.
Presentation in Show
European Dobermanns are photographed with the low exposure leash on their neck/chest with the dog pushing forward against the leash, and dogs are photographed with their OPEN mouth, often breathless and heavy. This difference can both obscure and exaggerate the similarities and differences in dog conformation (Euro versus American).
American Pinscher Dobermans are photographed with their necks tightened by the leash of the exposure in a position that pulls the dog upwards, and the dogs are photographed with their mouths tightly closed. This difference can both obscure and exaggerate the similarities and differences in dog conformation (Euro versus American).
