Depends on many factors: Genetics, upbringing, temperament.
Now comes the next question: Having someone experienced to work the dog, and evaluate it. I have seen some dogs that were "evaluated" by a "trainer" and told they were not suitable...only to be worked by someone who knows what they are doing, with a completely different reaction.
I have a friend who came across a dog of excellent bloodlines, that was tied in someone's backyard for the first 2+ years of it's life. The dog was never exposed to anything. The dog has ZERO issues, bites strong, fears nothing, and is an outstanding working dog. One of the best GSD's I have seen for "real world" application. I'd take him in a heartbeat.
