I can't remember if it was this board or another one, where someone had gotten a puppy (lived with his mom),,he was walking the puppy, some guy stopped got out said what a cute puppy, the owner bent down while the guy approached, the guy WHACKED him on the head, the puppy luckily freaked, slipped it's collar and took off for home..HOW SCAREY would THAT be???
I either get people who compliment me on Masi or people who avoid us like the plague.
My previous gsd's, would most likely reluctantly GO with just about anyone. Masi on the other hand, if I were out in public and someone tried to snatch her, I think they'd have a hard time. She isn't a social butterfly with strangers to begin with, if someone grabbed her, she'd probably nail them. If she were in my vehicle, (which she is always locked in) she's very quiet unless a stranger tries to open the door, then all bets are off.
So I'm not sure she's good "stealing" material. But I am very diligent in being aware of where I am, what's happening around us. So yeah, I can be rather paranoid
I had a rescue that was 12 weeks old, the guy ended up giving me a big bull story and sucker I am, believed him, so i gave him my address and phone, BIG mistake, I found out he lied about alot of things as in his circumstances, and was quite paranoid after that , that he knew where I lived,,so kept the place locked up like fort knox for quite some time as well as alerted the police to keep an eye out..
People are crazy these days, so us being paranoid is probably a good thing
