    no, the earth is obviously hexagonal and on the shell of a giant sea turtle swimming through the invisible sea that is what scientists try and hide as simply "the universe", don't be fooled by the earth is round or flat statements, they're just to hide the illuminati's evil plan. ;)

    Here's something else for you to choose not to believe... I have a good mate in WA a halfcast aboriginal man named Malcolm who is a very gifted wood worker/craftsman. His specialty is making grandfather clocks from Western Australian Jarrah. He and I worked on a clock together many years ago which was specifically chosen for and now stands proudly in parliament house.

    Maybe not so much their form but rather selective breeding by x-raying pups and selecting the ones with the strongest hip structure for future breeding.

    I’d prefer hulk the pit bull over a Herman shepherd any day of the week :p or any other beefy dog, German shepherd are made for chasing and holding someone on the run.. won’t stop a gun unfortunately:(

    I still love German shepherds as a family pet though <3

    Especially for a 12,000$ turtle which if it has a price, you aren’t the only one with one?

    Apart from our current little bitser, we've nearly always had blueys. Great loyal dogs. Our last one used to remember where other dogs lived when I took him for a walk; he'd start pulling on the lead two or three houses away.

    Exactly... these dogs might've worked well a few years back, but a discreet revolver will take up to six down easy without even reloading. Technology has overtaken the usefulness of these animals, and even though they might be loyal and try and fight, they can't stop a guy who wants their hands on your solid gold turtle.

    Come and meet my dogs and see how you go Rambo, bring your revolver too. Lol No locks no cameras just you vs the sheps. Those are odds I like. Don't let fear stop you... I don't have a solid gold turtle but I do have some solid gold I could throw in as incentive for you? No guts no glory. :D

    No pit bull would stop a gun either not to mention when compared to a German shepherd, a pit bull has about as much intelligence as a boiled lettuce leaf. I'll take a German shepherd over a sh*t bull any day as a family pet and security system. ;)

    That's pretty much what any and every dog will Do. My Jack's even do that.

    you guys are gonna shut this thread down, just wait for rob to get on :0. also, why name calling a dog just because people bred them for different stuff than shepherds? it's like those people who call exotics ugly etc just because we can't have them, bet they wouldn't call most that irl, and both pitbulls and shepherds can make awesome pets or guard dogs, one just has a bad unfair rep.

    About my own situation and animals?? No. Although there seems to be several people here suggesting that "nothing will stop a thief" locks and cameras will trump dogs yada yada... "shepherds are useless animals" people seem to know my situation better than me it seems lol interesting. Seems like plenty of people here are just commenting because they disagree with what I have going on but it's easy to talk the talk... if you're all believing what you're saying, come and walk the walk. That's all.

    no one has said any dog isn't useful, Scutella-?? just said that as guard dogs compared to modern technology they are useless for that.

    Modern technology watches and records a crime taking place. A descent animal/s will prevent it.

    The Police in NSW mostly breed their own Shepherds because of problems they had with other sources not having the right character and natural aggression for police work. They have to be unaffected by distractions like explosions, gunshots, vehicles, crowds and be able to jump and climb obstacles. Shepherds are the dog of choice for police work because of their athletic ability and they are have a better attention span and are exceptionally intelligent and easy to train.
    Their natural protective instinct towards their handler is easily developed to search for and secure bad guys.
    Only problem as a pet is the protective instinct sometimes has to be trained so not to be overprotective of your kids against other kids just playing. It's a natural instinct for them but they have to be well socialised and understand their place in the family "pack"

    also, did you know what the most expensive lizard/reptile sold for? probably not, making that statement irrelevent and false.

    When they have home security cameras that fire 50mm rounds for the general public, maybe I'll consider switching up.

    I’m not doubting the ability of your German shepherd, im saying it won’t stop someone who wants your turtles.

    Just like the Blackbutt incident, a well prepared thief will get what they want, observe over a time and then take advantage, we have had our backside neighbour throw over a raw chicken with X-poison. For no reason.

    What makes you think someone won’t shoot your dogs in the head when they find out you have a one of a kind turtle... which was your first mistake. especially after you post pictures with your name as a watermark(ish). Now people have your name, and with a little search ALL your information such as number, address, etc etc. the internet really isn’t the best place to boast about your “situation” because someone’s gonna challenge it, and it won’t be good.

    Again mate it's already well known. I don't know why you think this is new info and that I've just opened myself up for a criminal invasion. Lol anyway, this has given me some laughs. Dont worry about me or my turtles or anything else... we're perfectly fine. I appreciate your concerns though but yeah... Nevermind.

    I know it's a different breed and enemy,
    But Americans are obsessed with the great Pyrenees dogs (and boy, do I love them) for protection for themselves and animals against everything from armed people (many more armed people there lol), mountain lions, wolves etc.

    There's definitely a lot to be said for the right dogs.

    I can see how the dogs are probably the right protection available.
    Realistically there isn't a whole lot more you could do beyond a purpose built facility with guards....which is clearly not particularly obtainable.

    I too would put a lot of faith in the correct dog/s.

    ^^^ totally agree. Dogs are the best option for home security.
