Through my experience my dog Moka was an incredible dog. He was so cute and cuddly for a 75lb dog he thought he was a lap dog which was really funny! Please know that these dogs are stubborn and when they have their mind set it is very hard to change it. They are though very protective and would always be there for you through it all. They have quite the personality, well at least Moka did he would even stand up against me and wrap his big paws around my neck to give me a hug.
Hard to walk but very obedient if you work with them in a kind manner.
They are a great judge other humans to which is amazing you feel totally safe with this type of dog.
The only complaint about this dog is they truly become obsessive of their owner and can get rather jealous around children. My suggestion is to get the dog at the same time as you have a child or after the child comes along.
