A dog for SHTF
 
In the older days, the family dog was more common and essential.
In survival, SHTF, a dog can again be an extra valuable companion.

So, the let the debate begin on best dog for SHTF....

Bigger dog is better if he were to engage in a fight. Bigger dog also requires more food, which won't be as easy as a trip to the pet section anymore. Little dog can still be a deterrent and an alarm and doesn't eat as much.

OK, what's the best SHTF dog.

I would say a mid size dog like maybe a good rabbit dog who can help hunt small game and also can be cooked of you have to

Even tho it seams that way no I did not. We found the lab 2 years ago. She is the best dog I have ever had. I think I could teach her to pee in the toilet and flush maybe even wipe lol. I have only bin prepping for about 6 months. As far as Tyson. I have always wonted a full blood PR blue and white pit. Just so happens that I ran into a breeder that was on his way back from the vet with some puppies.

I did. Till I met my mother in law for the first time. She had 3 beagles a toco bell dog (I dont know how to spell it) and some kind of wont to be 1/2 Bassett hound. The most aggravating and worst behaved and stupidest dogs I have ever met in my life. It is the owners fault. But those experiences have put a bad taste in my mouth.

You like the way they hunt or taste??? :eek: :D

They're perfect for brush AND field, they're VERY persistent and intelligent...

Smaller dog, less food to tote if you're on your feet...

Probably not the best guard dog but I still don't want to get bitten by one...:p

Just use the dog as a alarm. Then you can bite them with 5.56 rounds lol.
