I have a Rattie one for Lucky that says "I make it to the fence in 2.8 seconds. Can you?" Ilka's sign just says "Warning, area patrolled by Mutt Security". I also have a plain "Beware of Dog" sign on the fence and front door.

Sign like some of the ones that have been posted can get you in a world of trouble in a worst case scenario. Many times they're considered proof that you knew your dog was vicious-a good way to lose a civil suit about a dog bite.

My sign is a very neutral : DOGS ON PREMISES. Maybe not "cute", but I'd rather protect myself as much as possible.

I found one I really should get for my Connor kitty. I says "Warning. These premises protected by a Turkish Angora with an attitude".

I have one that says Doberman on Duty. I used as a play on words just like my Pyrenees on Patrol sign. But I agree with Murreydobe, it is almost an admission of guilt that you're dog is aggresive. My aussie sign would read Ambling Australians if I had one, or Yappy Yorkies. But I love the picture and the wording on the 1st post.

Many years ago I was told by a Lawyer a friend of mine that the only sign you should put up is a No Trespassing Sign

If, you post a Doberman Sign or anything having to do with Dogs and something should happen it will be used against you in Court.

I don't know if that's true in places with a castle law. Here in Alabama, if you trespass, the landowner isn't responsible for any harm that comes to you.

ETA: with the exception of booby traps. Those are illegal.

I think no matter what sign you have or not have you will still get sued. No tresspassing sign is good also.
Because its a known fact that all Dobermanns are a vicious dangerous breed. LOL!!
I have a good question. Should it also be in Spanish???

Axel's Mom thats the best one yet. The others are also good ones.

I think any state that has a Castle Doctrian Law (it is already presumed if a person breaks in, he is there to do you harm. You don't have to retreat in your own home) should have also included dogs on your property if they bite someone, if they are illegally on your property. The best thing about the law. The home owner is protected by the law from lawsuits from the person breaking in if he survives or by his family.
Its dumb not to have included dogs. You can do harm to the offender while he is in your house. But if your dog bites him he can sue you for a dog bite!!
