Jules was my buddy for many years. He died of old age at 15+ years. He was to be my next show/breeding male. He was a large boy with outstanding structure. At six months of age he walked into the ring and won a major. He was never to walk back in. At nine months of age, he started an insecure stage. He started defensive growling during an exam. I had never encountered that and didn't know how to solve the problem. Years later I was to find many more people and many more male BSD have encountered the same behavior. Instead of supporting him and continuing his socialization, I was embarrassed and neutered him and kept him at home. I regret that today because he ended up being a wonderful companion. He was loved by the neighborhood children. They could literally do anything to him. I'll always miss him.
