Not Border Collies I Guess
Just read in the news how some folks did a test to see if guard dogs actually guarded.
Their conclusion was nope, they don't. Even though the dogs in question included pit bulls and Rotties, they didn't bite or attack, and some even tried to play. Many of those who commented pointed out potential flaws in the test, but the dogs were a resounding failure in repelling boarders.
However, they didn't test border collies
People who have walked into our house uninvited, on at least one occasion bent on stealing from us, could probably attest that BC's are not adverse to biting first and asking questions later. Ditto English shepherds. My old Brandy dog, who was probably at least partly that breed, bit several people...all of them walked in uninvited...none of them did it twice.
You can read about one instance when Mike took care of things here.
Guess they should have tested the kind of dog that will face down a ton of bull or hundreds of sheep instead of city dogs.
And, dang I miss Mike.
