Finally a thread I really like.
I have two English Staffordshire bull terriers. However, they are NOT good guard dogs as they are
to friendly to stranger. They will however protect their owner with their lives. Here is what they look like: Gorgeous
If you want a guard Dog that can also be a firm companion and you have the space please look into either of the following:
Dogo Argentino - Big powerful and very muscular dog. Bred for hunting big game. They are white in colour and are very very fierce in protecting your
family. Put it this way a pit-bull or German Shepard has no chance against one of these.
This is a VERY loyal dog and a very goods guardian on the home!! Period.
The next your should look into is
The Japanese Akita (or American Akita) - loyal, family orientated and very good guard dogs as used by the Japanese military and police forces. Not
great around kids and needs a firm owner to be a pack leader.
Both these dogs live around 10 - 12 years but will provide great companionship and guard duties. Loyalty is in their nature.
If you need one more choice that will protect you in a moments notice and will be unwaveringly loyal you may want to look at the Fila Brasileiro. But
YOU need to be sure this is the type for you!!
The Fila Brasileiro is a courageous, powerful Mastiff. It is amenable with its human family, making a very loyal loving companion. Extremely
dedicated to his owner. A Fila will protect you without a moments hesitation. He feels that is why he is there. The Fila is NOT a breed for the
average pet owner. You need to know what the Fila Brasileiro is about and what it takes to own one. If you choose to raise your Fila using the methods
which produce a dog who is "Ojeriza" to strangers (distrustful of), you must decide if your lifestyle will allow a protective breed who is anti-social
