Several years ago when we first came to live in Spain we were told by the Guardia Civil we had to right to defend our property in any way we deemed necessary. However, they did say, if you kill someone make sure they have a weapon in their hand when we get there. They also said if our dogs bit someone entering our premises without permission then it was their tough luck.
Now the burglars/home invaders need only call the new police force tasked with upholding the law, the Mossos d'escuadra, say they were threatened by the householder with a weapon and the police will kindly arrest householder, remove them from the premises, allowing burglars/home invaders the freedom to enter the property unmolested and rob the householder blind. They also need only say a dog bit them, bear in mind this is over the phone, they do not have to show the officers any proof that your dog bit them and bang the police will shoot said dog, removing the problem of burglar/home invader getting molested by a dog defending you and yours.
I have now come to the conclusion, if anyone does enter my premises I will defend me and mine with what my husband calls 'extreme prejudice'.
Beside my door I have a baseball bat, (gift from an American friend whose son played for a team in El Paso) a machete, (extra sharp and weighted so if I swing it, it will cleave your skull trust me) and a few other assorted items that I will use on whomever thinks they have the right to enter my home without my permission.)
The anyone by the way includes the police, because if they ever dare so much as show their faces around my home intending to harm my dogs they had best have bloody good medical insurance as well as a funeral plan.
Anyone coming over my fence need not fear my dogs, they need fear me.
