If these dogs are not to be active family members I think you should consider one of the molosser guard breeds. A friend has a Boerbel that is a formidable property protector. The GSD is a herding dog bred to work and interact fully with its family, not a guard dog.

I believe the GSD breed development combined molosser origin guard dogs with fleet footed herding dogs to create a great well rounded dog but they are at their best when the partner with their humans as a team.
