The German Shepherd was a total coward.I have a German Shepherd that I would like to loan them if they want to rerun the test.The intruder might want to look for a helmet with face shield before meeting Hannah.

My Dad’s German Shepard was absolutely useless. It didn’t bark at the intruders. It only started barking when he scuffled with the intruders, but did nothing to really protect him.

I agree. To make some stupid point they obviously picked wimp dogs.

They are welcome to try this at my house if they want a different outcome.

The GSD was noticeably limping.

I hope the owners will have that checked out.

Yep or mine. Ruger was 120 lbs of ball fetching machine for anyone in the family. One time my grandfather fell on our back porch. My grnadmother called me at work and I had to come collect Ruger because he would not let the firefighters in the back yard. He knew my grandfather was hurt and bless his heart wouldn’t let anyone near him.

I still have battle scars from training him. One time he had enough of training so he bit me on the hand I reached down and grabbed his tail and bite the daylights out it! He stopped being cantankerous right away. Of course I then had a mouthfull of tail fur!

“The German Shepherd was a total coward”

The GS probably had the best response of all of them. Actually, ideal would be a combo of some of these dogs.

The Rott did warning barks ahead of time, but checked out when the guy was in. The GS apparently (no film prior) let the man in w/o barking but seemed suspicious as time wore on and barked more at him.

Frankly, you don’t want a dog who just indiscriminantly charges and rips everything. There are many times “strangers” come to your home that you don’t want ripped apart. Especially if you want them to care for the dog. My dear-departed Perfect Dog GS (”only” 60 lbs as a GS should be, not oversized) always scared the !%##!%$# out of people outside the house, and she knew the INSTANT someone touched the grass on our lawn 300ft away down a steep hill just by hearing. Excellent “watch” dog. People coming to the house itself were scared. She ran after 1 boy when she slipped through the door after he stood there asking us to mow, but she stopped going for his ankle the INSTANT he obeyed my order to “STOP RUNNING!” and ran right by him. She always barked at everyone but those always in the house, regardless, but if you used her name, she’d let you in while barking (ask cleaning lady, my friend who took care of her on vacation). Cautious, anyway, but she’d watch you until she felt comfortable.

I want a dog that walks the line. Not enough are smart enough for that, though.
