loandr,

THanks! Stonegate Ignatius (Iggy to you and me) is 9 weeks, 15 lbs. He is from Annette Alexander in NC. Believe one of the parents was from M. Proffer. I need to go back and check my notes.

Where are your beauties from (I checked your other thread and saw the pics)?

go for a small dog that has lots of energy. some small dogs just mope around and woof at strange noises. a small dog like a jack russell or terrier will yap their heads off at strange sounds. my chiapom is getting old and doesn't "explode" at strange sounds much anymore. gotta get a new one.

jefecteau, I love your avatar! But now that you have your own Rottie, time to put her up on it.

nhglocker, my preference would be a Rottie. I had one that was fantastic. I invested some time and $ along the way with John @ Windy Hills, which you would want to do anyways especially if you got a "high speed dog", albeit a Rottie or Shephard. John's really into the Shephards.

Anyways, you can take a dog just about as far as you want to. My girl was specifically trained to go to the door anytime that anyone came to it. (that was just part of her training) I always felt my wife and daughters were safe when I wasn't home. Imagine being greated by a 90 lb Rotweiller. She wouldn't bark unless the situation warranted. She was docile and great with the kids, but when I "turned her on" she was pure business. I have no doubt she'd die taking care of me or my family.

Anyways, however you decide to go, good luck to you. Even a mutt that has some level of intelligence could provide for you. I do recommend some professional training, even if only from the obedience side of things.

Thanks all for the responses
Some great pics of handsome animals too!

Anyway I think I will probably lean towards getting a German Shepard now. Anybody know how much a healthy pup would go for?

Again, thanks everyone for the posts.

It's always best to do your research on breeders in the area. Ask around different breeders, vets, trainers. Stay away from the pet stores and puppy mills. Give John a call, I know he'd be receptive to answering any questions you may have.

I know there are some German Shepherd experts here who can speak more knowledgeably about this, but I have read a lot of complaints from GSD people that the AKC has ruined the breed and turned a good working dog into a useless show dog. Apparently it is tough to find GSDs in the states that are "true" to the breed. I hope the experts see this and chime in!

not sure it'd work out for most people but you can't beat a pet goose for an alert system

When I used to live in Phoenix I had pet geese,ducks,chickens, turkeys. Two of my geese just died by coyote. My dog is a Walker coonhound, he lets me know when anything isn't right, plus that bawl is unmistakable. Plus if I chase a burglar out of my house I can tree him too.

My aunt has a florist. One year I was running roses on Valentine's Day. Picture this: paraniod me who always locks the car doors as soon as I get out, several teddy bears in the crook of one arm, dozen roses in that hand, and the other hand full of a large vase. I walk halfway across the yard to be greeted by a very unfriendly turkey ;P

The man who lived there was at the kitchen sink eating a tomato sandwich. He reaches over and knocks on the window, motioning me to "come on." I freeze...until he calls the turkey off me in what seemed like two hours later :(

i have a rottweiler (2 year old male) and we joke that if someone tried to break in, he'd lick them as opposed to bite them and would lead the intruders to the valuables. he rarely ever barks. if anything, his looks are intimidating enough. i'd be curious what he'd do in a threatening situation but you know what, i don't really care to find out.

my sister's obnoxious JRT barks at everything so he's a better alarmist than my dog.

jeagergirl my rottweiler is the same way, licks way more than barks. only time she does bark is when my son is here and flips on his siren and he only does that to get her fired up. i have wireless instent fence for my dogs. my trash is picked up at the house insted of the street like most people have. anyway i put the trash about 10 feet past the boundrey (since it varies a bit being wireless). when the trash gets picked up my two dogs go to near their limit, rotweiller sits and wags her tail and the shepard lab mix barks and acts mean. guess if i were a thief i'd by pass my house with the dogs and all but i'm not sure they do anything. i do beleive they'd defend me if i were attacked, but then again if i were attacked there's a good chance someone would be getting shot.

that's so true. In the olden bibical days they used geese and ducks for intruder alerts. The pharoahs needed a quick alerting system for people trying to assignated them. Geese was the #1 pick for that job.

There are different types of GSDs, the showline is what people are referring to that the AKC is all about, there is still a working line, trust me

Mutts, anyone?

Any working dog mixed breed should have the instincts to protect territory and alert to strange noises.

Something along the lines of a German Sheperd/Collie mix would probably be a good fit.

As a plus, you get the Mutt Advantage of possibly hundreds of bloodlines of resistance to disease instead of a purebred's two bloodlines.

Heck, they're about 25-50 bucks, and most shelters issues coupons for STEEP discounts on 1st year shots.

Going the purebred route? Belgian Shepherds are great-they have a similar mentality to the GSD, but only have two distinct shedding seasons, instead of 365 days/year!

Belgians are seen in Europe performing police functions we're used to seeing GSD's do here. Smart, loyal breed.
