    Not recommending them (no offence meant at all but if you need to ask what dogs make good guard dogs I dont think these guys are for you). I've just fallen in love with them.

    A couple of interesting Boerboel clips.....

    go with a bullmastiff, they are very good guard dogs, they warn off intruders without attacking to kill, they attack only to "hold" the intruder.Originally bred to find and immobilize poachers,A Bullmastiff is courageous, extremely loyal to its family, calm, and loving. Bullmastiffs become intensely attached to their families. i would reccomend to get any dog from a breeder that way you can be sure how the temperment will turn out.
    heres my bullmastiffxpit.

    Those ones are pretty small, I have found a huge size variance in them, my mates is much bigger, 85kg, those ones don't look much over 60, his one has a oversized head for it's body too.

    Going back 12 months or so ago ,my local free paper had a warning in it that puppy owners should keep a close eye on them and preferably leave them inside if you were going out for prolonged periods as there was a gang of neanderthals (my edited version of what id like to call them) stealing pups and small breed dogs to use as bait dogs.
    I would be keeping a very close eye on that cute little fella as people such as those mentioned above are everywhere and disappointingly its a sign of the times.

    Unless you intend to train it then it won't do ****. Anyone who has more than a basic understanding of dogs will be able to read when a dog is serious and bluff it into retreating.

    Get an alarm. Most people who think their dogs will "guard" are deluded.

    hey,
    Id go a doberman.
    The germans bred them for purpose of hunting and, well, killing. thats why the ears and tails are cut off, to prevent them from getting caught in the weeds and what not when chasing people.
    If not, just get a giant #%^! off dog. cant go wrong, only problem is that the bigger the dog, the bigger the crap and the bill for food

    There are very few working line doberman breeders in Australia, and those that do breed working line dobes won't sell to someone who just wants to guard their home.
