Thanks! Yes , that is along what I was thinking ,though I have at best a passing knowledge. His fur is rough and longer than what I would consider a standard ( or typical ) length ..but I don't think he is plush enough to be a plush lol
His proportions do not look like other pictures I have seen of American Lines but he does not seem as quite stocky as German Working Lines. At least from photos I have browsed .
I do not know enough about drive to call him high medium or low. He loves the flirt pole and gets really super excited over it..and he loves to lunge and his absolute favorite is aggressive tug. But then he is pretty chill in the house. Shares his bones with us ( kids included) ..he pushes it into you until you take it from him , admire it , and give it back lol . No food or toy aggression..does not jump on the kids and knock them down though he does herd them. He did knock my son down when he got out and was heading to the street. I did not see it ..my dad was with them. I consider that a good thing. The only personality/training issue we have is effusive greeting of people . It is not like a puppy greeting ..it is a bit more like " let me sniff you all I want no matter what " . It comes off as pushy , not affectionate. I can call him off , but he will trail the person if I am not on him. We are working on it with a trainer , so I'm sure it will resolve.
Anyway , that is his personality in a nutshell if that helps .
