Before adopting a dog, we must always have done research in order to make an informed decision about the animal we are interested in having. We need to think about how we will live together and have made the necessary preparations for the puppy to arrive.
The Greek White Shepherd is a family dog with a very strong guarding instinct. In general, it is a very friendly breed which, driven by its deep instinct of belonging in a herd, gets very attached to its family, making it very protective.
