They're neat dogs - I knew a few with horrible, uncontrollable aggression towards dogs, but they were both from a BYB in my hometown - so I think it was an isolated pair of cases.

One of my trainers had a Standard Schanuzer named Misty... she was the best behaved dog I have ever seen. Her owner would put her on a downstay on a pallet of dog food at Petco, walk away to the other end of the store, and Misty would stay put - no mtter what! If you tried to pull her off, she's struggle to stay where she was left!

He never ended up finishing her, she only needed a major but her heat cycles started to act funny - she'd come into season several times (6+) a year, so he had her spayed.

The ones I've seen have struck me as having a terrier sensibility (ie, they greet every single dog with a 'fight today?' inquiry) with a much more powerful body (more like a Rottie than an Airedale, for example) - not a nice combo if the dog's got a lousy temperament. You might want to ask a trainer to do an objective temperament test on the puppy before you commit to it. Also, I seem to remember you had rabbits. Not that all terriers will be bad with rabbits, but if this girl shows signs of being very predatory, it might be safer to find her a home without small animals.

Someone I train with rescued a Giant. All I can say is it's BIG.

Oh, and I see them a lot in the protection sports.
