I have known several dobermans and I have family members that have owned several. They were all very friendly and intelligent dogs. Dobies are one of the breeds that have gotten a bad rap because of bad breeding and bad owners! A dog that is well-trained and gets enough exercise and mental stimulation will do well.

As with any dog it depends on the bloodlines, the training and care.. I would definitely talk to people beyond this forum as in trainers, respectable breeders and doberman rescue organizations... there is a lot to learn about the breed and you need to make sure it is the right breed for you and if so then find the right dog for your lifestyle and home.
