Here is one you asked for and I never started.  We were talking about aggressive dogs coming out of shelters and you told Kazell it needed it’s own thread.

Should shelters take and rehome aggressive dogs? It happens all the time

I think there is a place and time for aggressive dogs. German Shepherds aren't #2 on AKC lists of popularity for having Lab-like temperaments. There is a real need for HA dogs. They aren't for everyone but neither are over friendly dogs everybody's cup of tea.
