Interesting article, on how 'some' dogs, are just very special needs. And nothing to do with how they were raised.
It’s Not How They’re Raised, It’s How Dogs are Managed That Matters Most | notes from a dog walker
And another link from a dog trainer, that bought new dog, from responsible breeder, trained it well, and then it all went to shit. Again, nothing to do with poor training, raising.

IF like me, and dog trainer who wrote this, you have owned one of these 'special' dogs. It is very validating, that it wasnt you!
Some dogs are just nut bags. And then require managing for rest of life. I took on a Rottie, that was exactly the same as Cujo in the story. Terrified of most things, extremely reactive.
Which is why i enjoyed both above articles. RIP Kevin1. Heaps of time, energy went into him. And he taught me so much, and we had such a special relationship i'll never forget. When you have a highly reactive dog, who's terrified on wind, BUT trusts you enough to venture out in it, is awesome!
