Thanks Gary. It's one of the reasons I really like this site. I figured it was the one place a person could talk about such things without setting people into an indignant frenzy. It is sad in the world of dogs that 'champion' in front of the name gleans larger importance than being a good protector of the home, companion for the children, worker in whatever his breed was meant for. The other reason I came here is I thought just maybe this would be a group who understand what I was looking for & why. So I appreciate it.
Thanks & if I find one, I'll be telling the world starting here first. If things keep as they are, I may end up looking for a pair. Crazy how scarce good members of this breed have gotten.
