Could be. I don't believe the trait has been completely bred out. It is often selected away from due to the lower demand for such a dog, potential liability, and some breeders mistaking the trait as a temperament fault. I think most of the time, people who say a dog has the trait of social aggression are identifying other traits.

In this case both breeders - here in the US (who happens to be European also) and in Europe (Denmark) are very experienced and are very selective when they call a dog "gangster". The only other dog that they owned/bred and described as "gangster" was Astel vom Ecke - who was sold to Ukraine. He did participate in the BSP twice but when sold to a buyer in Germany was returned because the new owner/handler could not handle him and was afraid of him. Breeder in Denmark then sold him to Ukraine who know a thing or two how to handle socially aggressive dogs.

I think they have good genetics for doing good sport, that doesnít mean that there isnít working potential/prospects....just that the drive level makes for a good sport prospect.
