I would be surprised if it was solely down to 'nature' rather than nurture.

This is a breed which does require a great deal of socialisation and training at a young age, and as I've said before if...

Trouble is, the breeders flooding the market probably don't read the dog papers - and most if not all of the dogs coming in are neither chipped nor papered.

On the plus side, some of the...
