[quote=bigdog322] Arun im sorry but im gonna have to disagree with you "if you want a sarplaninac, essentially go for one.. it is absolutely your choice and you exercise your choice. pick the right puppy and raise it in the right way and he'll be a great companion of yours. (right way doesn't mean something which is really difficult.. it is just saying 'NO' and "good' whenever it is needed to be said. and of course, being a rottweiler owner, you must be knowing.. exercise your authority..by training or things like that..) good luck.." Atleast for now, I do agree with others that maybe Awaress should start out with one of the softer temp LGD to gain some personal hands on experience. I see more and more of LGD's needing to be placed in shelters and foster homes because of lack of experience on new owners parts [/quote]
if they are such people who'd abandon the dog for not suiting their life later on, they must never caste their eyes on breeds like this. the enthusiastic people that I know here are of such nature that, even if the rottweiler they bought to guard shows terrible signs of fear, they don't abandon the dog, because they consider it as a part of their family, as their own child.. they accept the way they are. here, we seldom find people abandoning expensive dogs in shelters.. :) I dunno how exactly it is in the west..
