I was raised around both GSD's and Dobes pretty much from birth when stuff like that was being said,we never saw it. Ours were around kids,cats,and people constantly and while watchful and protective,they were wonderful,loving,pets and great companions. In this area pitbulls due to the positive publicity from shows like "Pitboss"," "Pitbulls and Parolees" and even "The Dog Whisperer" are given the benefit of the doubt. Our shelter is careful about placing them but allows them to be adopted. Owner surrendered Akita's are euthanized immediately after the owner leaves,I was told this by a shelter worker. Their policy is based on a profile of the worst of the worst an Akita can be in the wrong hands and they simply will not risk placing them assuming that all of them are that way. They will however try to place puppies under 14 weeks. Having been around,owned,and raised three in the last 17 years,I know what amazing dogs they truly with the right people.
I just wish others would give them a chance.
