agree with what's been said already. My 3.5 year old female doesn't have a protective instinct in her at all. I don't expect she ever will either. Protect your puppy and if he matures into the guardian you're looking for, yay. if not, love him anyway but don't get your hopes up for a while yet. he's got a ways to go before he's even close to mentally mature.
