I did not read the thread, nor any but the OP and question, so pardon me if this is repetitive, but my dogs will deter most criminals by barking their fool heads off. If someone walks into my house with an evil intent, I truly do not know for sure what they will do.
But, if the choices are my dogs attack the intruder and are shot or beaten unconscious, or they trot along and show the intruder where the computer, tv, dvds, cds, and my poor sad excuse for a jewel box is, and are intact when I get home, then that is what I would choose any day. Unfortunately, you cannot hope these days for a burglar who will just take the goods and leave the dog intact. So, if someone were going to hurt my dog, I hope my dog would at least get a few bites in on their own account. So, I guess I really do not want my dog to protect my home with their teeth, but if need be, I hope they would protect themselves.
