Those numbers are probably for apprehension or dual purpose dogs.  Scent only dogs may have a lower threshold for acceptance and maybe more qualify.

Most German Shepherds aren't bred for LE.

So I stopped at a local garage today. A man fell in love with Dlila. Turns out he doesn't live so far away and has a 10 month old male. I asked about temperament and he said that him and his wife totally adore him but he tends to be territorial. 

I ran into a friend on a trail today. This was her first time meeting Dlila and Gnash. She fell head over heels for Dlila. My friend goes to some city dog parks that I have never been to. She says that you can't go to those parks without meeting at least one ACD. She said they are very popular in the city.

Oh cool!  You don’t mind territorial.

Territorial is protective of the home and car, a dying trait in modern GSDs.

Mine are protective of the home and sort of in the car, but I had to get them to back off a little or I could not take them anywhere.
