I used to think they werent really a pet. Where I grew up, they weren't very common as a pet. Occasionally I would see one as a guard dog. And of course Their reputation as a police dog certainly made me think they were more dog than i could handle. I just wanted a pet. Just a normal average pet owner, not one to put a dog in the yard, but I'm not into revolving my life around a dog either. So I didn't really think about it much.
Then years later I wanted my own dog and looked into different breeds and saw people like me keeping them as pets. I just kept trying to learn more, but wasnt sure since I had no intention of showing or joining a training club. Tried to meet a few and just really was impressed by everything about them. Haven't looked back!
