Thanks Bolas, I didn't know they called Boerbels lion dogs, too. A SA Boerbel might be my next dog when my oldest (a Presa Canario) passes... if I can find a good breeder over here. I've been researching them about three years now.
Never one to pass up a chance to post my crew... from a couple years ago.

Wasn't it nice to see that big old Scottish Deerhound win a big prize? Not just another pretty face.

Good looking dogs Pacanis, okay I took Max off his previous idiot owner who bought him as a "trophy dog" he could not control him and said he was going to have him put down which made me very angry.
I think the reason they are called lion dogs is because the original breed was Mastiffxwild dog and they were used to protect against lions.
Like you we are used to big dogs, we have never abused Max, I trained him with love, he still shows flashes of his old self and we never leave him alone with anyone! he gets very agressive with men with beards and wheel barrows, he rips the tyre off with one bite

Our 3 German Shepherds are very social and especially love kids. I am retired so I am home most of the time with my wife. At 2:45 on weekdays the school bus lets out children who run to our place to hang out, ride horses, play Wii or watch movies. Most of them are young girls who help my wife around the house. They stay until their parents pick them up after they get off work. It is a safe place for the kids to come after school. Our dogs are very different when the children are here. They run and play with the kids. But if someone who is foreign and not a parent comes to the house, they become aggressive and very defensive with the children. I thought it was a good thing until a grandparent who we didn't know came to pick up a child early. The dogs let him into the compound, but would not let him leave. They are in protection mode when children are here. A band of children could break into our place while we are away and steal everything we own....and the dogs would help them carry it out to their bicycles.

LBG I doubt that GSD's a smarter than a lot of humans, the pic of our two was on a bridge near a large lake where we used to live, my wife took the two out for a walk whilst I cooked dinner, you are allowed to let the dogs run free, a man exposed himself, my wife screamed Asia the black bitch ran out of the woods and attacked him, Max the tan dog ran out and just stood on guard between my wife and the man. My wife called Asia off the man was arrested at the nearest hospital, the police gave them bones when the came to tell us he had been caught, they also said he was a mess

Wow. I wonder what would have happened if that man were just going to the bathroom in the woods. Would your dog still have attacked him and put him in the hospital? Because we have horses and give lessons to children, out dogs have to be very obedient and social. They're a simple deterrent, and more if needed. Protectiveness is an innate behavior for most dogs. Our two smallest dogs are search & rescue. If what you described would have occurred where I live, both the man in the woods and the dogs owner would both be in jail. Dogs attacking humans outside of your own household is very serious concern for nearby residents. I'm just glad your wife is ok.

LBD we can use reasonable force over here, this man had a record of flashing. Thank you for your concern over my wife, she is harder than me, she was certified by the Miami coast guard as a ships fire fighter and was one of the first female Maitre D on Celebrity Cruise line.
