I think this answers everybody's question about"is my dobe going to be protective" that we have had on several occasions!!they can be the quietest Dobie in the world but when they are needed they are quite prepared to stand up and be counted.
It reminds of another a little closer to home.
My sister has 2 dobies (Zoe and Boris) and little girls about 6 and 3 at the time. They were playing in the front yard and my sister went in the check on her baby boy. A man walked by and walking into the yard. Zoe jumped the fence pinned down the man and held him there. My sister came out right then and call Zoe to her. The man ran off, before she could even ask him anything. Thus, I am happy to have a baby of Zoe and Boris.
We all know that had Zeus wanted to hurt the guy, he would not have been able to run away from the scene. Any bets that Zeus showed him more mercy than the robber would have shown his owner had Zeus not been there?
Great, Glorious Story!!!!!! and I agree Okie..........she probably would have been a statistic by now
I think if Zues had given him a bite or two nobody would have complained but the robber....................BUT I think it is a wonderful show of the character of this breed that he didn't need to bite!
Bet that robber will think twice about a life of crime!
Love that story! Funny about that thing about proctecting "victims'" names. Seems to me in this case the "victim" was the stupid-ass robber!!
I enjoy the leeway people give me walking Toro through my neighborhood. I live in a rough neighborhood, and although I myself don't look like a victim, having a big black dobe only adds to the intimidation factor.
I often wonder if I was in this situation if Brutus would do the same thing. I wonder becuase he's a big baby. He gets scared when he's in small places, he gets scared at cars on the street, just really random things.
