Newbie, my first post for Prince
My first post here. I have a white German Shepherd, 1yo 3 weeks ago. Got him as a pup. Wonderful dog. Very smart. House broke when he was 3 months, still trying to overcome him tearing up my yard and chewing things up though, LOL. He is my 3rd Shepherd, my first white one. Got him for my 2 and 4yo to grow up with. I have never seen such a loving, gentle dog. First of all, he has never once snapped, growled or made any aggression toward a person ever, not even as a pup. You can even grab at his food when he eating and he does nothing. This is wonderful and I understand that the white breed does tend to be more gentle. I am just wondering if he will ever get any sense of territory and become a protector? This came natural for other dogs I have had and he just doesn't seem to have it. If someone we didn't know came in the house or one of us was threatened, the way he is now, he would just try to be their best buddy. Is there anything I should or can do here, should I be concerned, or should I just let nature take it's course and let him be who he is?
