Doberman pinschers, also known as Vinnie the Pincher, were guards that Sly Cooper encountered in Mesa City in Episode 2 of Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. They served as the Muggshot's Flashlight Guards.
They were cigar-puffing brown doberman pinschers dressed as typical 1920's gangsters: they wore a black coat concealing a white-collared shirt with a black tie, as well as gray pants and white spat covers. With a flashlight-mounted machine gun as their weapon of choice, they were seen patrolling Muggshot's casino or the neighborhoods and alleys surrounding the base of operations. If intruders were caught within their light, they would pursue them to open fire. If they were successful, they would howl triumphantly while firing at the sky before rushing around the vicinity to search for more intruders.
