    That to me is a good looking girl you have there.

    My girl is a Staffordshire Terrier mix rescue. Smart as a whip and stubborn as a mule.

    A Pug, who loves everyone, including, I would guess, the bad guys breaking into my house, and a Yorkie-Poo, who is a great watch dog. Barks at any noise and you wouldn't know his small size from the sound of his bark.

    Here are my Irish Wolfhound and my 4 month old (60+lb) Rhodesian Ridgeback.
    The IW is very gentle but lets us know when someone is around. The RR doesn't know what a watchdog is yet, but he eventually WILL.

    Sorry, the pic is not the greatest.

    I love my German short haired pointer mix, Remington. He's a rescue dog who keeps close watch over his new home and is wary of strangers. He has a very loud, deep bark that alerts us and warns them. S some others have noted, he is a smart dog, but very stubborn too.

    Had a Husky that was very alert but did not bark. If you walked up to house you would find him staring at you out the window. Had a very intimidating look.
    Currently have a Beagle. He Barks at least once when someone approaches the house. If they have a dog with them he continues until they are several houses away.
    If they have no dog he stops. If you are going to break into our house do not bring your dog.

    Great thread ! ! I would "like" every post on here if I had a little more time. Dog people are good people.

    I'm a big fan of the GSD's. German Shepherds seem to have a decision making ability that is simply amazing. The newest addition to my family is now about 8 months old. She's my first all black Shepherd (always had white, or black & tan's). She's still a baby, but has an extremely deep growl and bark if she detects a threat. I think she'll be a great watch dog. She has all but rid my back yard of tree demons (squirrels).

    She has been responding to training extremely well, and is a total mush around people that are introduced to her.

    Here is her favorite perch. She sits behind the sofa and watches the front door.

    These pics were taken when she was about 5 months old.

    I got lucky with my husky I suppose.

    He barks loud, and mean, like he is going to tear some you know what at anyone besides our long time neighbor and family.

    Great watch dog, but horrible attack dog. If someone gets too close he keeps his distance at all costs lol but at least he keeps barking I reckon...



    LOVES Ice.

    ^ Oh yeah. My GSD loves ice almost as much as peanut butter. Problem is she never cleans up the puddle it leaves.

The main thing I am confident in, our boxers would wake us up,they always know when someone is walking by or pulls in the driveway. Best alarm system in the world.
    awesome. are their ears cropped or down? my boxer's ears are natural, but i feel like if i got a male i'd CONSIDER it.

    also, are those tactical nuts? in case someone's breaking in, you tip that over and then it makes the BG comically slide all over the place as he tries to walk?

    ^ Thanks! She's got some funny facial expressions.

    Those are Blackhawk! cashews. The vending machine is 5.11. It's non-magnetic and has MOLLE attachments so I can wear the cashew machine on my tac vest. At the mall.

    Not worth a damn as a guard dog



    But when she aint sleeping, the little Beagle mix is watching and barking at everything that moves, and is hell on small game and snakes.
