If he is trained aggressively then he can be dangerous , like all dogs for that matter. Educating him means starting to do it when he is a puppy with precise rules during training . No punishments, if anything the positive reinforcement technique is useful . The cost of the pure breed is really high, so you can opt for the adoption of crossings. Even dogs like the course are abandoned, to adopt them there are many Facebook groups of Rescue Centers related to purebred or crossbreed dogs.
