May I clarify one more thing;
This breed requires devotion. They are needy. They are (generally) "unhealthy", they are self-destructive, they are big, they need constant training, socialization, and lots of exercise. A backyard won't do. Juno is almost 18 months, still learns new tricks, goes to training classes, a 2 mile off leash run, and and 1 mile walk. On top of playing fetch. They CONSTANTLY are up to something and they are incredibly smart.
If you "gift" a puppy, you're more like burdening someone.
Don't get me wrong, this is my forever breed. I've found that better bred dogs are a helluva lot more smart and energetic than poorer bred dogs.
