Not only are German Shepherds intimidating to people, insurance companies are scared of them too. If I got one my insurance company would cancel my policy. I was kinda of surprised by that.

I have a Dogue de Bodeaux (French mastiff), and I don't think I could ever have another breed - Brody's a little over a year old, but he has settled into our lifestyle beautifully.

I'm sure my homeowner's insurance would come down if they knew what Brody did for my home's security - that and my .40 cal.
