The CAFIB standard has been around for decades, if not longer; it's not a new-fangled piece of write-up, really. What the issue has become is that the Fila is moving out of the shadows and into more of a spotlight, in part because of the misunderstanding about ojeriza.

Renee and BP are right, there really is no good way to describe the proper temperment via the internet, it does need to be experienced. I've met Kharma a few times and it was just awesome to see her go from "I don't know you, GTFO, noob" to loving the scratchings she was getting, to attempting to find and disarm someone after she heard a gunshot during the night and then went happily through Petsmart the next day. There is something dangerous in a dog that can think for itself, but I would rather have a dog that can reason than a dog that tends to bite first and ask questions later, such as a Malenois.

I personally can't wait to get a Fila. I understand that it's going to be a daily schooling to teach my dog how to comfortably move through the world and not over-react to everything around it. I've had the overly thinking Lab, so I've had practice of sorts in that venue.
