Interesting comments above.
Men are different from women, in the sense that, i wanted a breed of dog that would protect her, and home when i wasn't there. She, on the other hand wanted this breed of dog.
Granted he's only 1 year and 2 months old, but it gets to me to see him jumping up on every Tom, Dick, and Harry.
I've had other breeds that at 1 year, they were already showing guarding / protective instincts, and the fact that this guy isn't showing anything at this point, is really starting to bother me, especially when I consider the amount his food is costing me.
