Most dogs have an instinct to protect their home and family and they can also make excellent Guard Dogs. Guard dogs tend to be loyal, fearless, strong and watchful. They not only alert you when a visitor arrives, but also intuitively know when to protect you from dangerous situations. Big guard dogs need proper training and socialization due to their strength and size.

His short, plain and smooth coat is completely white, but a dark patch near the eye is permitted as long as it doesn’t cover more than 10% of the head.
