I don't like that dog, he is a beauty, but a real jerk. He is obviously under socialized, domineering, and easily provoked by anything, We have met numerous times, and every time, his dog begins and ends up aggressively behaving towards mine, pinning, growling, barking, lunging. Take what you will from this, but I have a hunch it is because he did not have the positive exposure and socialization that is important for all dogs.
Jae,
Kira has had a mixed bag of positive and negative experiences. Regardless, she's a people and dog friendly sweetheart. She never shows aggression, and is super friendly. If anything, she's on the timid side. I would NEVER expect her to bite anyone, or attack another dog.
As many around here recall, I made it my business to socialize her as much as possible. Her temperament is wonderful. It's the other dogs that always go after her.
