We owned one briefly. His kidneys mysteriously failed at 8 months old. He was a gorgeous animal but way too much aggression for my liking. It was a hard lesson learned. We went back to GSDs after him. Have you met any in person?

I would never own one...read lots about them, too much aggression, need lots of land, not a practical breed to own for regular folks.

I considered getting one but one hundred fifty pounds of aggression could be a bit difficult to manage and control. I chose differently but still love the breed.

They put up a good show but most can be run, defense is too high generally. There are many GSDs on the sharper end that can provide the same service.

To me, and I have only met one, they are good protection dogs, but they're just too generally aggressive. It would be hard to have one... they're so darn big!

The scary thing is that they (CO) seem attack to kill and attack face and throat. These can have huge legal implications even if the victim is a burglar. Its just like one cannot shoot a burglar to death.

Thanks!

Never heard of this breed before. Fascinating.

Wonder what helpers here would say about this guy:

If you are into the extreme aggression and protection...look into the fila brasiliero...met a few of them, would not get into biting distance. Not the kind of dog someone living in a non-rural area would want.

Filas are the only breed I've ever seen with all their crates together at a dog show with caution tape around them. The judge does NOT touch those dogs to evaluate them.
That CO breeder is very close to me, I've met her a few times over the years with a few dogs and they always seem like decent dogs. Dogs to respect, but well trained and socialized and under control.
I recently lost a little respect for the breeder though. A pup was sold to a lady who has a golden retriever and no experience with aggressive breeds. She was bringing the pup out to socialize. Gorgeous puppy! It started growling at other dogs at three months old, growling and lunging at people at four months old. The last I saw her, she left the pup in the car to get a muzzle for it. At just over four months old the owner was not capable of bringing it into public anymore. I imagine the pup has been given back to the breeder by now.
Definitely not a breed for most people. The breeders website is great with tons of good info. One of them is you must not have unannounced visitors to your home.
All this being said I would love to own one some day - I really do admire them.
