    I want to do ADBA shows and keep as a pet. I understand they need a lot of time and exercise to be a happy dog and I can offer that.

    It’s not just a lot of time and exercise to be a happy dog. I know plenty of people who have owned “game dogs” unknowingly and ended up with major problems. They can be extremely rewarding, but also take tremendous responsibility and time in the owners part. I had the sweetest jeep female you’d ever see. She was excellent with children/strangers any human really. BUT, get her around another animal and you’d be dealing with the spawn of satan. She lived to be 12 and because I knew what she was and didn’t try to change her- she lived a long happy life. These dogs naturally have a greater propensity towards animal aggression. Also you have the chance of your dog growing for a year or two with other dogs and animals and all of the sudden BOOM they are never the same. Simply put- they could’ve been triggered and something turned them on or they matured and their hormones changed. Happens to different dogs at different times for different reasons. My Male was that way. It wasn’t till he was about 3 that he became a savage. There are plenty of stories out there of just that. There are also plenty of dogs at young ages too because of the way they’re bred and impatient dog men. What I’m getting at is you’re shopping for a Ferrari and I really think you’re looking for a Honda Civic. Look into AB’s. Now- that’s not to say you can’t end up in the same boat- just reducing the likely hood. IMO game dogs take a certain type of individual to own and train them properly. They NEED to work and in some cases they can’t turn off the need to work. In some cases they can. I wouldn’t tell just anyone to buy a Mali, or Dutch shepherd either. As well as many other working breeds. Hope this helps
