Here's one of our guard dogs (ignore the fat finger in the way of the lens!). Wife says that when I'm not home, they're up all night going window to window. When I'm home, they look like this, guess they feel theyre off duty when I'm home.

i find that dachshunds can be excellent alert dogs, if you have a dachshund and a rott/german shepherd mix they work really well together as an alarm system [granted theyll go off if a car, plane, or even a pedestrian is nearby, even other animals]

I agree! In addition to the attack weenies there is Mandy. She was a stray that showed up here one rainy night back in the winter. Normally they don't get to stay but I had been wanting an outside dog and she seemed to be a good dog. So after a couple months of looking for her owner(more than likely she was dumped ) I had her spade and have kept her.

It is not wise to not inform the insurance company about dogs you have. If you don't inform them they can void your coverage.
hmmmm..... funny my insurance agent never asked me about what breeds of dogs we own.

I have never been asked what breed of dogs we have, but I did get into it with Animal Control when my Coonhound bit a bicyclist (as a result a report was generated and we were forced to license her). The guy insisted that she was a Rottweiler or Doberman. While the general coloring is similar, she has a large white patch on her chest and white on her feet and the moment she barks it is clear she has a lot of hound in her. Here is a pic of Daisy Duke. I disturbed her nap so she is looking at me with her WTF? look.

Default Doggy warning systems...

My personal predjudice will show through on this... but my avitar says it all!!...
Short-haired HOUNDS.... and my favorite breed is a rescue!! Once they are secure and realize they have a forever home and someone that loves them they WILL protect it and the pack... and the first order in doing that is to alert the household!!

Oh please enlighten me as to these HIGH RISK Breeds.

Never told any insurance company what dogs I have. Never had a problem yet. Nor will I ever tell any company.

Just like I don't tell my insurance company that I eat bacon. It is just absurd BS they try to sell you so they can make more money.

Insurance was a great thing until it became big business and a huge for profit scheme.

I personally think a single payer system would be the best. Everyone pays into a big pot equally. Then when you go to the doctor the payment is taken from that pot. Of course now that Doctors, Lawyers, and politicians are so corrupt it won't work. Plus Insurance is big business that is only looking at how much money they can make. Same with Doctors today. I am all for everyone getting paid what they are worth. When I was a kid if a family didn't have money to pay for a doctor visit the doc allowed them to barter with food, livestock, or work. That can't work today because every doctor is entitled to a million square foot house and 3 BMW's in the drive way.
