Default Home Invasion, Aggravated Robbery, Gunfire

Yesterday in my neighborhood! The robber escaped through a vacant lot, but not before the homeowner’s son pursued him and gunfire was exchanged! A similar incident occurred years ago, with other neighbors, w/o the guns. They have had a series of guard dogs since that run the perimeter of their property and do not live inside the house. This past weekend I got involved with their escaped, newbie in training return.

Of course, I have a problem with shots exchanged, but I’m also not on board with dogs that patrol and aren’t inside. I don’t want to insult their guard GSD’s by sharing that my poodle watches our security cameras in AC comfort.

I'm picturing Buck, leaning back in a recliner like a security guard, watching a monitor. Meanwhile, the dogs are on patrol outside in the Texas heat. Sorry about the gun fire. I wouldn't like that at all. Glad you have Buck to watch your back.

That’s scary, glad to hear you are okay.

And yes, poodle security guard dogs are so smart, the sit on the couch and watch the security monitors in comfort.

That does sound really scary. I believe dogs should be inside also... gets too hot here to keep them outside.

My poodle doesn’t have a security cam to watch, but does his fair share in listening very closely while he lays in the couch. (Which is a direct hit by the a/ c vent).

Wow that is scary. I presume your neighbor has been really sacred in the past. Hopefully the intruders will pick another neighborhood as they found yours was not a easy target. I had a neighbor t one time in the past that also kept guard dogs on their property. The dogs though were well taken care of and even had a heated/air conditioned dog house so they could get out of the weather.

That is awful! It sounds like a reportable thing for those dogs to be outside. GSD are hot 11 months of the year even here in the northeast. I hope they have dog houses with AC. Our property "guardian" is a house dog, not a yard dog. But even though I know he is not an aggressive dog by nature his bark combined with that of the poodles would dissuade most people I know from thinking about trying to come in. We even had an Uber Eats driver who rang the bell and left the food on the front steps because he was driven from the door by the barking recently.

Oh man. It's scary when it happens in your own neighborhood. Definitely a good reason to have dogs around, but yes, I agree dogs should be in the house. They can still alert from there. Both of my dogs are on the smaller side, but Miracle's bark is so deep a person hearing her wouldn't know she weighs around 13 pounds.

It isn’t a reportable offense having the dogs outside in the yard all the time: at least not here. The law requires the dogs to have shelter, (dog house, screens in porch etc) where they can get out of inclement weather like rain or snow, that part is ok. They must have a good supply of water and, of course, dog food. They also must be in good physical condition. As long as these things are met, Animal Control does nothing. In their eyes that is fine.

I, however, am totally against leaving dogs outside all the time. Dogs are indoor animals in my mind. Outdoors is for potty, play and walks, and of course outings with the family.

How terrible to have this happen in your neighborhood. Glad you have Buck to help you feel more secure. Asta is a good guard dog - his bark can be furious and sometimes scares the UPS man although he is inside.
