Yes I read a lot about the other animal aggression found in the breed. He routinely plays with the other dogs there, large and small and they reported no issues as well as telling me that during his cat tests he just didn't seem much interested in them at all. We'll see how forthcoming the shelter has been but from the interactions I've had with him, seen him in, and videos I've watched of him with other animals he seems like a big goofy sweetheart. To be honest he sort of reminded me of a less hyperactive Lab in an Akita body. Which is why maybe he might be mixed with something, or we just got lucky?
