i've always had Stafforrdshire bull terriers, i recently lost my lovely boy at the good old age of 19.
i rescued another from shelter about 3 month ago and was friendly with humans but wasn't trained.
he's now a little star, its as though i've had him my whole life. i feel confident that if the SHTF that my Staffy Russell would be an asset.
Staffy's have a good hunting instinct but are also very obediant so wont chase other animals without permission (i'm sure there are exceptions to
this). so i believe this would help with food, more the sniffing the animal out rather than the catching them.
Even though they are a friendly, loving dog they can look rather tough and scary, they cackle rather than growl and will protect so this will help
with any dangerous people.
theres the obvious advantage of their keen sense of smell and hearing, which may help alert me to danger or someone heading my way.
all of this is harnessing their natural instinct and behaviours. im not a dog trainer just an animal lover, but the key is already having a strong
bond with the dog beforehand, like Russ knows im pack master lol.
i think strange dogs could come in useful if u have food to bribe it, but i doubt we are all going to have extra food to feed the stray's lol.
they will pack together and will probably become a hinderence - unless they join Russell and become my pack then i'll be fine lol.
about eating dog.....hmmmm lets hope the S doesn't HTF that hard
