Maybe I misread, I didn't read all the posts. If they can't handle a GSD and asked about another breed, why could they handle a retired military dog.

My friend trains Malinois for the military. You think a family could handle a military dog if they can't handle a pet GSD? They are crazy animals.

might depend a bit on what they were trained for in the military - I.E. difference between a patrol dog and drug detection or S&R dogs, perhaps.

A couple of national level IPO dogs I know are really great pets, kids and all; others not so much!
