Dempsey scared off some intruders

Post by Eleanor on Wed Jan 29, 2014 4:06 pm

Okay, so the intruders were books on the floor, but he didn't know that! They weren't supposed to be there, so he attacked them and tried to tear the pages out.  boston terrier

Buster really did scare off an intruder once. He never ever asks to go into the garden but on one particular day he did. I let him out thinking it was quite strange and he immediately went bezerk in the garden. Our garden is in two parts separated by a wall and a gate. It's hard to explain but when you open the door you can only see part of the garden unless you step out of the door to where the gate is. Buster had turned into a devil dog and was going mad at the gate so I had a look around the corner and there was a young man in our garden behind the gate!

He had obviously climbed over the 5 foot wall at the back of the garden and he was intending to come through the gate and go through the second part of the garden and over the fence at the top part. He couldn't though because Buster was there and then I noticed a policeman climbing over the wall too. The young guy then scaled the high fence separating my garden from my neighbours garden and ran through my neighbours garden with the policeman chasing after him! I have no idea what he'd done but there was no way he was going to come face to face with Buster!

Well done Buster!

Our garden's a strange shape as well!

Good for you, Buster! happy A police assistance dog!

Sounds a bit like our garden layout, except we have a seven foot fence dividing it down the middle. Keeps Dempsey on one side, with the doors out of the garden on the other side where he can't get to them.

Good boy Buster!

I personally think that Staffies are much better guard dogs than they are given credit for. (examples given upon request)

OK - after having Dobermanns who yelled their heads off at anything and everything, which would probably scare off any intruder but didn't tell me anything (like crying "Wolf"), I was very pleased to get a dog who wasn't as noisy. Yes, he barks a "play with me" bark and will bark when he hears another dog barking, but these barks are very easy to understand, and it was such a relief that he doesn't bark at every knock on the door, postmen, newspaper boys, car horns tooting, etc etc.

But about a year or so ago I was walking him in the meadow which runs along the back of the houses in my road (and across the small river which runs between the houses' back gardens and the meadow) when we heard a bit of a crashing noise and the next second a youth jumped up onto the fence at the back of the garden. Kuchar immediately stiffened and uttered the most deep-throated threatening woofs I had never heard from him before. The youth just sat there on the fence transfixed, and as there was nothing I could do anyway (he was across the river remember) I managed to get Kuchar away, but upon returning home I investigated and it turned out that this youth had been trying to burgle (house-break) the house, had crashed through the roof of a shed he was trying to use as entry to an open upstairs window, and had panicked and tried to make his escape over the back fence.

Since then I have only heard Kuchar woof like that when he has heard a suspicious noise in or in close proximity to our house (like a bang on the garage door - OK it was only a neighbouring child's ball as it turned out) but I know now that he can tell the difference between normal sounds and something that may be threatening and when we hear that particular woof we (including my big son and a cricket bat) know to take it seriously.

I'd say that Kuchar is a very good guard dog!

Well done Kuchar! I know the bark you mean. Buster and I walked down a dark path one night and suddenly somebody appeared climbing over the fence, Buster's bark even scared me!

Demps gets a different bark as well. His attention seeking bark is either a hiccough-burp type one or single, sharp barks. The bark he does when he's actually heard something is terrible - loud, low, grumbling and throaty. He usually does a slurred string of them.

Bellas bark is like that. She doesn't bark very often but when something has concerned her she does a low, loud, growly and sorta howly bark. It makes me jump every time. Mostly it's over daft things but today she done it when a neighbour was taking furniture out and must have hit it off my door but it sounded like it was coming through it. She wouldn't leave the door until they left the building.

Don't know about anybody else, but to me it's a comfort to have an extra security alarm in the shape of a few loud woofs! tongue

It's those loud, deep-throated woofs that alerts one to the fact that our dog (well my dog anyway) is seriously worried about something and it needs to be investigated. And this would be the only time that I am glad that people (especially naughty ones) are scared of Staffies!
