Big, thick coated dogs. However, I've heard they have typically have short life spans.
I looked in to one before getting my last German shepherd. They're great looking dogs but you're right about the short life span thing. I believe I remember reading the average lifespan of one is like 7-8 years. That still didn't stop me from looking but I had no luck finding a breeder on the east coast.
