I feel like there should be some sort of vetting process to own a BC, since they are such wonderful dogs but so many people get them thinking they will act like a shiztu.

I've had mine since he was a puppy. He has been an awesome dog, very smart and extremely loyal. He's slowed down a bit, he used to be able to jump through the window of my Jeep and sit in the front seat.
