They are gorgeous, but I think a challenge as far as training. Aren't they known for being a bit dog aggressive and very protective of their handlers....more so than a GSD?
I think the DA probably comes from other dogs reacting at their body language/tailset. So it is a 'reputation' but not a genetic trait. I can't wait to see photo's of formerly George.
That is interesting, Carolina. Hope a breeder isn't dumping dogs.
