At what age do puppies become vicious or protective usually?

I'm just wondering because I'm getting this one puppy, who's almost 4 months old, and he attack this one dog 5 times his size, and became protective when this large group of strangers passed by us. I just didn't know puppies at such a young age could be like that....

    They do not. This puppy was probably just playing. he is really too young to have developed such a behavior, even if he has not been treated well.

    Usually it's around 10 months that dogs start trying to be the boss. But every dog is different.

    depends on breeding and environment
