It well could draw him back in memory. Is it possible that he was returned to the breeder when he was very young? PP dogs are trained to become PP dogs from 2 weeks of their age by the breeder. But some trainers buy puppies at the later age in order to raise and sell already trained in protection dogs. Pretending to be a potential owner, they "try" puppies for suitability, leave brave ones and return to the breeder those with weaker nerves. These puppies later would show strong reaction to the person of similar bodily constitution, sometimes it seems illogical, how possibly the pup could be not scared even a little of a big bulky man, and scared of slim and short? Something should add to it, like some particular itonations of his voice. That is one scenario.
Another scenario could explain. A similar looking man could work for the breeder. Say, a cleaner. Puppies must be held in sterile conditions, he could be not terribly careful moving them.
A third scenario - it was a vet. Not every vet has plenty of time to fiddle with puppies if they don't want to be handled, he could simply grab yours, make injection - and here you go! And the vet was a big man, who came in a coat and a hat.
