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.
