Can you post the pedigree? He is from working lines for sure, being a dark sable (and absolutely gorgeous!). I googled von hochlandenge but did not come across any info that I could use. Perhaps there are others on the board that recognize the kennel name.
He is working lines. As to whether he is from a pet breeder that breeds dark sables for pet homes because that is what is popular lately, or from a breeder of working line dogs who still breeds to maintain the breeds' integrity, nerve strenght, and working ability, I do not know, and cannot know without the pedigree.
At any rate, he is a VERY nice looking boy! He is much better off with you, as he be will loved and appreciated for who he is. Ridiculous that the lady that had him didn't want him because he was too timid. HE IS STILL A BABY FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!!! Let him grow up, enjoy his puppy-hood, and mature into a confident, outgoing adult before expecting protection out of him, geesh!
Oh well, her loss and your gain!
The energy level you describe is typical of working lines. You are doing pretty good so far with your exercise/play schedule to meet his needs. Make sure you get into obedience classes, and/or some activity like tracking, agility, nosework, etc, to exercise his brain too. I bet he will just love it, and so will you!
