The most amazing thing Leo has done is survive. She was a walking skeleton when I found her, and I fully expected her to die on me. Even the vet wasn't very optimistic of her chances.

We were visiting a relative once who has a small but snappy dog. We were all in the back yard when out of no where the dog snapped at my 4 year old son and got him right on lower part of his cheek. My dog Thor ran across the yard, jumped over a chair, grabbed the dog by his scruff and tossed him back. He stood between my son and the smaller dog let off some warning growls and didn't leave my sons side for the rest of the day.
Also another time we were traveling. I took Thor and Boxer (who was 6 months at the time) out to go potty. My hotel key wasn't working. A man in a hat and jacket zipped up covering his face with his hands in his pockets walked but behind us. I warned him to back up but he wouldn't. I noticed both dogs had hair standing up on their backs. I warned the man again to back away and he didn't. Thor kicked his paws backs, Boxer bared his teeth, Thor crouched down and lunged snarling and barking. The guy took off running.
That's the only time I've seen either of my dogs get human aggressive.

I often go for a "potty walk" between 11 and 1 pm at night, and one night I turned from an alley between two residential streets. Hunter kept looking back, looking back, looking back.. I didn't see anything, so I tried to hurry him along. Suddenly I hear someone walking behind me, look back and see a guy in a hoodie walking quickly behind me. He asked me if I knew the time, I told him no. He quicked his pace up behind me and said, "I asked for the (censored) time, (censored)!" I panicked and started to run, when Hunter turned on the leash and went into a "revier", pulling me a bit towards the guy and giving it all he had. The guy stopped, turned and ran. Not sure what would have happened, but Hunter wanted him for a late night snack.
Not sure if you saw it, but I posted about Hunter and I almost drowning in a fast moving river... we saved each other, but he ended up swimming to the shore with me exhausted holding on to his collar... you can read the whole thing here:

Murphy is one of the dogs we have that is actually from Schutzhund lines, rather than actual herding lines. He's a big boy and uses his size to his advantage. He's had some Schutzhund training, before we got him, and I've got pictures of him taking down large men. There was no doubt in my mind that the dog would have gone after that man had I not stopped him. And I'm okay with that, it's good to know he protected me.

Our first GSD, Ellie, took guard between myself and a quarreling neighbor once without prior training or being told to do so. He threatened to kick my ass, but he wouldn't step off his curb. The closer to the edge he got, the closer Ellie edged to him. She was offleash too at this time. I advised him if he wanted to keep his legs and arms to go back inside. He was a drunk and pillhead. A very paranoid guy. The argument started because I looked at him across the road.

I had one of the boys, Murphy, out with me one day, checking fences, and we were back on the other side of the pasture, couldn't see the house or the barn from where we were. I'm walking along the fence, and all of a sudden he stopped and started growling and barking and positioned himself in front of me. Turns out there was a man hiding in the woods behind the fence. I didn't see him, but Murph sure did. When he saw that the dog had spotted him, he spoke up and kind of creeped out of the woods, holding is hands up and asked if the dog would bite. By this point I'd grabbed hold of Murphy's collar and said "**** yeah, he'll rip your face off." He claimed to be a "hunter" that got turned around in the woods but he was wearing a t-shirt and shorts and didn't have a gun or bow with him that I saw. I suggested he go on about his business before I let the dog loose on him. He turned around and scurried off into the woods.
Later that night I found out that the people who live down below us had been broken into. I don't know if it was a related incident, and I don't know what would have happened had I not had Murphy with me, but I now carry a gun and take ALL the dogs when I go out to check the fence.
