The real question is whether the 'bloodline' was established for guarding, etc. or as pets.

The breeder should ideally have some info from a website on genetics (inbreeding) for dog breeders (I forget the website's link) - at minimum, the breeder should know both parents health histories and same for all 4 grandparents. Most large breeds are subject to hip dysplasia so ask for info on that back for 2 generations.

A good breeder will also socialize the puppies to humans and human noises (e.g. puppies are exposed to TV playing Westerns while eating, playing).
Good advice. Thank you.
