I had kids for the exact same reason. I wanted them to protect me. I get so pissed when my two year old son says hi to the random stranger walking down the road. ](*,)credit said:I bought the dog to scare away the robbers not to kiss them to death
Why? your dog is less than 50 pounds...and also thats not a pet thats a guard dog, so go buy a guard dog, not a dog that has EB in his blood...credit said:A loving dog would be one that protects it's MASTER and it's MASTER's FAMILY TILL DEATH
If that statement offends you sorry.
A dog to me serves many functions like the dogs of the American Frontiers man. companionship protection both of life and property.
