    NEW: German shepherd stops attempted rape

    Police are looking for a man who forced his way into an Imperial woman’s home and attacked her Wednesday afternoon.

    The incident took place around 11:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of Westward Trails.

    Lt. Dave Marshak of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said the man, who identified himself as "the cable guy" to gain access to the victim’s apartment, had tried to rape the woman, but stopped when he was attacked by the woman’s German shepherd.

    Marshak said the suspect is a white male, approximately 6-feet tall, medium build, weighing about 180 to 210 pounds, with light-colored, "buzz" cut hair and some facial hair stubble. He was wearing a black and gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, black and red gloves with dotted grips inside and a stocking cap.

    The suspect could possibly have bite marks on his neck and shoulder, Marshak said.

    Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS (8477) or the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office at 636-797-5521.

    Good dog!

    Funny how we've got the sheep/sheepdog/wolf idea rolling around this forum sometimes. This is good reinforcement.

    Forget the milk bones, give that dog prime rib roast. Too bad it didn't go for the guys crotch. Now that would really be "Taking a bite out of crime!"

    Hopefully some can be found tomorrow out in the yard.

    Congrats to this outstanding 'canine friend'.

    You just can't beat a good dog around the house. Unless you combine a good dog, with a good weapon.

    I agree prime rib is a reward that GOOD dog will understand.

    People laugh when they see our little corgi and our big GSD. I tell them that she (corgi) is the bark, and he is the bite. Our GSD is a real lover, a softy, and a momma's boy and I'm pretty sure that someone messing with his momma would be in big touble.

    The dog is essential in any good home protection strategy. The dog allows you to get to the pistol, which in turn allows you to get to the shotgun. After the shotty is in hand the only hope for salvation for the BG is the Lord himself.

    May the Lord have mercy on my enemies, because I won't.

    That's one good looking dog...what is he/she?
    Is that iron cross he's paying homage to the last BG to enter your dwelling?

    As previously posted, that GSD deserves several prime rib dinners. Border Collies are typically considered the most intelligent breed, with GSD's coming in 3rd behind poodles. GSD's rank around 10th in protection, but generally are ranked #1 in combination of intelligence and protection.

    That is why we own 2, and will never have another breed.

    Funny thing is, the wife was afraid of the breed before we got "Mercedes", and now she can't imagine life without a GSD by her side. Mercedes and her SP101 make her feel very comfortable at home when I am working nights.

    Here is a shot of Mercedes at play:

    I sleep pretty well at night -- a gun by every door, almost every window, and my 145 pound long-haired GSD, Bingo. Now all I need is a moat!
