key is finding a good breeder who can match you with a puppy that will fit your lifestyle/wants/don't want.

With that, make a list of what you want in a dog and what you don't want, high energy/low energy/ middle of the road/

It's not so much about the lines, more about the individual dogs.

I have always had working lines, tho one was more american lines. My working line dogs, do require more exercise, but had/have good off switches when they mature.
My american line was more of a couch potatoe. Again, all dogs are different.

As for protection,, well some can be naturally protective, some are not.

I'm going to move this thread to appropriate forum
