A sharp defensive dog with lots of aggression and a low threshold, or a sharp defensive dog with lots of aggression because of bad nerves. I myself like the first example. A fear biter not so much.
As far as litters differing or not every pup having stellar nerves. A good breeder should produce predominantly dogs of good nerves. Meaning confident, social, pups. not every pup will possess the same drives or extremes when it comes to those drives. But, I would hope that a breeder who has a bitch or stud that consistently produces nerve bags would stop breeding that dog.
Per if the dog bounces back, I would say that it would take a combination of good training and the dog having good enough nerves to bounce back..Best to not put the dog in that situation to begin with. But the **** happens.
I agree! I’ve had the weak nerved dog and it’s not fun. I never want to go back to that again, EVER.

@cdwoodcox agreed - It is the nervy/lack of nerves part of that combo which I was referring to. I think there will be always some kind of range in a litter unless it is scientifically manipulated. The majority of the litter Is what I imagine the next breeding would be or not be based on.
Life happens unfortunately. Very glad the dog is in better hands the board and train should be ousted -wishing the best for him. Yes the dog will benefit from both good training and good nerves.

Did the pup at least enjoy the tripe? If so, worth it. But lesson learned.
