I'm usually a heavy sleeper. And sometimes I'll have the TV on or music playing. I've been looking into which breed of dog I want so that'll be my "alarm" once I get my dog.

Glad I'm not the only one who gets up and takes a lap around the house at night. The other night someone was shooting fireworks at
2am so i am looking out the window and see a car kill its lights and pull into my alley, Here is a tip have clothes handy so you dont have to look around ( It was just kids screwing around)
Not just a dog, but a rescue dog. Any dog given a second chance will try harder to keep their home intact. I sleep in a coma, until one little woof.
...I'm kinda the same way. My wife's a nurse and sometimes has to leave and come back in the dead of night or wee hours of the morning (phone ringing in the bedroom ...the works.) And the garage door is right below us and makes a LOUD noise in the bedroom when it operates, vibrating that whole end of the house ...but I never wake up to any of it. Sleep right through . She'll ask me if I knew she got 'called in last night' and I'll say, "whut?" I don't know what to do about that except maybe install an alarm that sounds off if an intruder tries to enter. Something that sounds just like my morning alarm clock...
If you're that worried about being invaded, perhaps an alarm system (a nice loud one, loud enough for you) or a well-trained dog would take care of your apprehension.

Funny story, I was staying at my in laws (who work construction and are up at a god awful hour in the morning! [FYI- I was also working midshift at the time. I'd forgotten what the sun looked like.]) when my father in law thought he heard gunfire. My wife told him to wait a minute, and if I came out of the bedroom with my gun drawn he could worry, because that is the only thing that wakes me up!

I learned to sleep through anything when I had to sleep through mortar attacks in Iraq. Basically if you couldn't sleep through them, you didn't sleep at all, and that wasn't an option. My dog makes sure that I'm up if anyone is near our front door or any windows.

I used to be a light sleeper until I got put on Zyrtec for allergies. Half a pill before bed-time, and I'm out.
Luckily, our 20-pound mutt has the growl of a large dog and serves as a great alarm, and also a pre-alarm clock in the morning with the face-licking, ear-scratching, and bed romping.
If you don't have the time, patience, or energy to devote to a dog and its many needs, don't get one just for the sake of having an alarm. There's plenty of other alarms, like the portable battery-operated kind you hang from your door knob.
