From my experience she has an independent personality. She is a very sharp dog, and can make some very snap decisions on her own. As a puppy she was enrolled in puppy school quickly, to help socialize her with dogs and people. Her guarding instincts are very clear, and she requires the ability to "vette" all of my guests. I let her because she tends to have a pretty sound decision. I feel that if I had not bonded to her, or taken her to do things, she could have quickly got her self into some serious trouble. She isn't as big as the Ovcharka can get(she topped off at about 80 pounds) but she is very strong for her size. I could see how she could get tempermental if left to her own devices, or with an owner that isn't confident. She did in fact, already change hands in ownership, I got her at 8 months old because she had become so much for her owners to handle, that she just ended up kennel bound a lot. She is a toy dissector, as in, she doesn't chew, just, quietly unravels them. she has a lot of attitude and likes to throw it around, the gampr as a general breed trait, are very vocal, they bark, and girrr and harrumph and sigh. They are a land race breed, so their is a lot of variety in looks. but general attitude is similar in all gampr, in that they are Barky, very attached to their "charge" confident and freethinking. As with any independent dog, she likes to push her boundaries occasionally, and likes to have something to do. a bored gampr is a bad gampr! She learns anything I could teach her in like two days, and after a week, she will have it down pat. She's actually been a pretty easy dog, and has aided in training my younger dog. Honestly after her daily run, she's pretty lazy, and she's a dream to own.
