I don't mind the hesitation of greeting a stranger. Uallis will alert bark and give a stranger wide berth until I let him know its "ok"...but I know without a doubt that Eddie would bite someone if they got close enough to him.
I hate hate HATE the thought that something could have happened to him and I wasn't here to stop it from happening or protect him from it. I know that none of this is his fault. I really think something had to have happened to him that day.
