Max just has no desire to shag or fight any other dog, just wants to play with them all, not that I'm complaining, he's totally trustworthy.
One thing I have noticed with Max is he marks all over the place when we are out, does those big long exaggerated scrapes, that's the behaviour of a dominant, macho male, yet he's a complete puppy with every dog he meets. Maybe he'll become more interested in the ladies as he gets older.
My GSD X Husky developed pretty serious male aggression out of nowhere when he got to around two years old, he could tell if a dog was male regardless of neutering, I think they can just tell.
Funny enough both my dogs mark everywhere but only my ***** scratches the ground. Reese pretty much always acts like a macho super dominant dog except for when he is interacting with people (because then he acts like a goofball) or Tika and she definitely the one in charge between the two of them, other than that he pretty much demands every dog he sees acknowledge his dominance but I wouldn't call him dog aggressive which is why I think he couple probably get on with even other males as long as they didn't have a dominant personality themselves.
Tika is different she is also a dominant dog but she is honestly more combative and very selective about who she does and doesn't like (dogs and people included). She also puts up with exactly zero shit from dogs she doesn't know.
Once we had a big lgd (a maremma or maybe a great Pyrenees or some mix of one or both dogs as both breeds are pretty popular around here) roam into our yard in the middle of the night, the poor guy was in a bad way looked to be nearly dead from starvation dog, he was nice dog let me pet him and everything, I went inside filled up a bowl of food for him to eat and went outside to give it too him, Tika saw him eating and started a fight with him, he was probably close to twice her height and as skinny as he was still probably weighed twice as much as her 18-19 kg, she couldn't care less I had to drag her inside to keep her from escalating it into a full blown fight.
