Dobermann dogs are celebrated for their loyalty, intelligence and protectiveness, and Yappy.com’s data indicates they are also the most likely to be lavished with treats and gifts by their owners.
The dobermann also came out as the top dog in the states of Wisconsin, Louisiana and West Virginia.

The Japanese Shiba Inu, bred to hunt and work, are the most likely to be spoiled with treats, toys and accessories by their adoring Texan owners. Only a handful of Shiba puppies are born each year, so the wait list to get one is long.
