Its like when people meet Zuke and me walking off leash and they say, "Oh, I thought boxers are nutty, high energy and don't listen." and I always say, you want a dog like this, be prepared to do a couple hours of training and exercise a day at the least, and training doesn't stop when they learn something, he is 3 1/2 and we still train every single day
The husky's were in the news a few months ago due to Game of Thrones and the dire wolves...I guess some may have gotten a GSD or Mal for this too. I wonder how many want one after seeing John Wick 3 too.
It's great that your neighbor listened. I think so many get a breed based on how they look instead of the best fit for their life.
