I know this is because people are afraid of Zeus, they assume he is aggressive and would harm them. If only they knew how well behaved he is and that he will not attack at any given moment. When most people think of a typical guard dog … Continue reading

These dogs go through years of training, socialization, assessments and are matched up to appropriate owners that suit them.
