Get some good firearm training and forget about the dog.

I can testify to what keith and sue said. The rotweiller does work. I have been to their house and she won't let you out of you car.

Sometimes a Beware of Dog sign at the front gate
will deter some folks. They do not need to know
you have a Chiuahua! (sp.?)

What if someone's child wanders into your yard? Better think about that.

keith, i feel like advice like you gave to single mommy may not be such a good idea. i live in the country, where my 15 year old son helps me farm. i am not always around to help him with the chores that i give him to do.we live 2 miles from the farm in another house. he rides his three wheeler back and forth to the farm. the man down the road has a bad dog that has chased travis more than one time just because it did'nt have a "sense of humor" dogs do not know bad from good.people do,so knowing how to defend yourself would be better. if someones dog hurt one of my family members because they had a flat tire or had a problem and went to someones house for help i would deal with the dog first, then with the dogs owner. just something to think about in the world of all the lawsuits going on.

bman the dog wont leave the place and would never bite a child but if someone grabbed the wife or kids he would be in lots of trouble dog was raised by a woman (sisterinlaw) and loves kids and women but knows I will protect the place and if I am home dont worry about the dog worry about my old 45 friends are always welcome and have never had a problem with a dog on my place but if they mess up they get shot to. The dog isnt mean just loves her owner.

People should respect other peoples property and teach their kids to respect it also.My dogs stay on my property,they are at home.If someone "wanders" into my yard and hurts my dog,my property or my family,I'll deal with them swiftly and self defence.Laws and lawyers are what is wrong with this country.Common sence needs to be brought back.

Don't go to someone else's home and hop out and run to the door,you may not be welcomed!If it is an emergency,thats the chance we all take.Too many ignorant salesmen have ignored a dog.Some have learned and now they are telemarketers,wish I had a biting dog on my phone.

redneck, i hope you did'nt take my comments the wrong way. my son respects the man's property and does not stop there as he is afraid of the dog, but the other night this same man had 17 angus heifers out and i stopped to tell him.after two or three trys to get to the door i said the heck with it' he can find out on his own. the dog chases the boy's three wheeler every time he drives buy, god help someone on foot. i also said the man would have to deal with me, not a lawyer. i hope i did'nt stir up to big of a stink.

So its okay for your dog to kill somebody who
needs help and comes to your door? How
does that fit in with the Christian goodwill
toward others?
"If it is an emergency,thats the chance we all
take." So if your kid was hurt and your wife
was driving him to the hospital and had a flat
and went to a nearby house for help and was
killed by their dog thats just bad luck? Or
would you be dammed angry that that dog had
done it?
If I ever have a dog that gets too much of a
taste for people, family or not, thats the end of
the dog. Theres too much chance for that to
become a problem, especially with little kids
that don't know better.

I have two Rotties of my own that I absolutly adore. You don't have to train them to be mean to keep people away, just seeing a Rottie makes people give us a wide berth. My male is such a lovie that one day we had a kid climb our six foot wooden fence into our back yard and chase him out of his kennel. My mom came home and saw the kid running around our backyard with a fire cracker. She got rid of the kid and went to look for my dog and found him hiding on the side of house. He didn't even want to go back into his kennel for a while. Don't talk about Christian charity, because my dogs are my kids and if I would have gotten a hold of that kid I'd probly be in jail right now. He's so lucky my dog would never bite, but I wouldn't have blamed him a bit if he had. All he ever wants is love and attention and he never complains about anything even though he's had hip dysplasia since he was three months old.

Guard dogs and attack dogs can be a great asset under the right circumstances. The trouble is, few people have the proper environment for them. If you want to see a prime example of what an incorrect situation can be, just take a look at the recent trial in CA on the dog that killed the lady. Sorry, the name escapes me at present.
Anyway, for my money, give me a small loud dog and a good firearm in the hands of a trained person. My opinion only.
