Don't forget to budget/plan ahead for when the German Shepherds hips go bad as they so often do when older.

Alot of the large dog breeds have hip problems

Probably a beautiful, gentle household member, especially a Lab, if all it did to flunk out was to put her paws to her ears, and whimper, at the sound of gunfire and passing tanks.

Sounds like my dog she's part Lab and can't stand thunderstorms

Some countries do use vicious dogs for crowd control usely 3rd world countries

When the wall come down, east/west germany 99% of the GSD's that had been used to scare people turned out to be big soft mutts.

The vast majority were taken in as house pets. 😆 They looked the part and did a lot of barking but had been spoiled rotten by the handlers.

Depends on who owns them mine hasn't done any of those things except for the barking part she does let us know when someone is at the door but that's it

One of the less well published facts on sniffer dogs is that some countries will introduce the dog to a very small sniff of say heroin or coke. Dog gets a little buzz and will keep trying to chase the buzz.. Those sadly enough are the most successful sniffer dogs.

Can we assume that these dogs wouldn't turn a blind eye to a bag of drugs when offered an extra tin of Chum? 🙂

Depends on how much you pay!!! 😉

I like to keep my freedom, dogs are pussies, can't stay alone. I prefer cats.

You are right they are pathetically dependent which is why some people like them, women especially. At least cats have an amount of independence and dignity, dogs are reduced to pretending to like humans for food!

How do the dogs know what it smells like if they've never smelled it before?

Sold to a Chinese restaurant 😂

 

     That said , i do remember when slaughtered dogs , were for sale in Sakon Nakon .

       They were not skinned , just hung on a hook , with price tabs on them.

       For some reason black dogs , were more exspensive .

        They all tasted , same same to me...

My dogs dont do any such thing  except barking of course when people approach gates of house or they find a snake.... but thats what they are paid to do

They are all big girls and seem to scare most Thais who do come to the gate but we dont have any near neighbors and gate is always locked we dont do open house often, although dogs rarely show much interest when " invited guests"  are inside.. All bets are off for uninvited ones but then again thats their job!!

I would never let my dogs near kids.....i dont trust them..... KIDS that is

 

IMHO in the countryside here dogs  are a necessity but then again i have always had guard dogs

By having is in a closed container and holding it under their nose.

 

I also know what durian smells like even though i never ate it.

Will the prospective owners be vetted to ensure they are suitable to own a dog, not get fed up with it and let it roam the sois?
