Even though it can be stressful having a dog with some aggression issues, nothing can ever beat the feeling of safety he provides us. The other morning, at 7am, he caught some weird dude lurking in our front yard. He barked his beautiful head off and the guy hightailed it outta there. We’ll never get broken into because we have a four-legged alarm system which lets us know when anyone is within 15 metres of the house, and he’d happily take a bite out of anyone uninvited. I can wake from nightmares only to have him jump on my bed to be my personal body guard, letting me fall back asleep. He happily sits with the chickens, protecting them. I know I’m a crazy dog lady but god damn does this dog help with my anxieties.
