Sorry........but those are the facts and I retained the letter for my records.....the adjuster entered the home after reading the Beware Of Dog Sign and admitted to that.....guess he didn't have leg to stand on......litterally.....as far as the viscious dog you say......well he was doing his job and continues to do so......stop bye sometime......Just kiddin'...naturally.
Actually he has 3 AKC obedience titles and if he were vicious he would never be allowed in the competition ring or to compete. He's just a German Shepard which make him much smarter than most two legged creatures.
Could very well have to do with what state you're in as well... much like opinions on defensive scenarios, it's hard to give blanket advice that sticks nationwide.
My thought is that he didn't enter uninvited, he was allowed in... the dog should have been restrained, because at that time he was not doing his job, he was attacking an innocent person who was there to do a job.
Actually as I said, I thought we were going to be sued........we weren't...........Sooooooooo.

I've got a cat and I've never had a break in. Of course, I never had any problems before I had the cat. The cat's response? "You were just lucky."

I would rather it be a surprise as to whats inside
My in-laws live in the hood and have had break-ins. All have happened when they were gone with the two very large blood hounds. The police say that ALMOST without exception never go to break in calls where a dog is present in the house.
Yes, I've had a break in with dogs in the house, it was our three border collies. When I came home they were in the yard and they're NEVER left outside when we're not home. The cops thought the perpetrators were high school kids who tried to pry the front door open then went over the fence and broke the back doors to get in. What was the worst, for me, was the realization that my dogs were lucky to not be injured.
That group of dogs did bark but nothing compared to the ones we have now. Again, three border collies, but also a big Australian Kelpie and an Australian Shepherd. One BC flings himself against the door if someone is out there while the others jump around on the furniture whipping themselves into a barking frenzy.
No signs, isn't the barking enough?
Sure, go ahead, break in. The dogs will enjoy it but I doubt if you will.

Had a persistent couple of thieves try for my garage while we were home. Dog will not bark, but she'll let you know something is up...

I have a warning sign for my dogs. When my insurance agent saw it, they told me to remove it. Apparently if my dogs are actually vicious, they are all bark, and someone got bitten I could get sued. They threatened to cancel my policy so I had to remove the sign.
That's the kind of world we live in currently. How screwed up is that?
