My dog is a APBT and she is very friendly. My dog is very nice and scared of everything!! Shes scared of everything possible even a peice of paper lol. I love my dog and I do not want to make her vicious, but i do want a strong guard dog and a good protector for the family, this is the reason why I I like APBT's because they show great courage and loyalty. Shes even scared of tiny dogs, especially if they bark at her. Is this normal for dogs or is it maybe shes still young (about 6 months old). I want her to be a very friendly dog but also a good protector and guard dog but I dont no if she will grow out of being scared of everything.
