Yeh, Shawn...Dogs breeds go in spurts...Rin Tin Tin was replaced by Lassie..Lassie was replaced by Benji...Benji was replaced by 101 Dalmations, literally.....And then the Jack Russel( Forgot the name)..Then, the Rottweiller ( cuz of Damien)..and now, the Pit bull( I suppose a flashback from "Little Rascals", maybe?)
Whattaya think is gonna be next?..I'm thinkin' the Collie and German Shepherd are gonna make a comeback.
I learned years ago, that a collie could be trained to do most things a Shepherd could do but the Collie failed the final tests because they couldnt train them to "Attack" people.
I have a "Rotty" that is a great dog too!
But, unfortunately, as A guard dog, I just dont know.....I think that when someone comes to steal something at my place, they might just steal "Tank", as he loves everybody and thinks everybody who comes here is coming to see him!. However, Tank has gone off twice at people that I remember, and I dont have a clue why...One of the people I didnt really care about much anyways, but the other guys tripped over him at work...( yep....At 5 weeks old I took Tank to work with me for 5 weeks straight and then a few days a week for quite awhile, just to be sure he got socialized to all kinds of people)I guess Tank got freaked out and made that "Scary Growl" and short lunge which looks like the "Real Business End" of a Rott...After that day, Tank had to stay at home..( Good thing the guy liked me, or I suppose I could've lost my job over that) (and having a dog at work, particularly a Rotty, wouldnt look so hot either!)./
