Here are 5 of those breeds. If you are considering one of these breeds, remember they must be properly socialized early on in order to be okay later in life with people outside of their family.
This breed had an unusual beginning. They were bred to keep large estates free of poachers by tracking and pinning without causing them harm. A silent guardian, they are known to be fearless and confident.
