The ones I saw varied from unapproachable defensive dogs to aloof, but OK around people. Not much drive for obedience. Very Very defensive in bitework. A person would need a very good helper to work one in IPO. I never saw them track.
I was lucky to train with a helper that worked a lot of different breeds so got to see quite a variety.
American bulldogs, on the other hand, were well represented in our area with a number of them making SchH/IPO2 or 3. The more bully types had a hard time with endurance especially in tracking, but, though very single minded at times (to the point of being total butt heads) were pretty good in obedience and protection.
