    My dog assigned himself to protect the most vulnerable person within his sphere of influence. One time I had to call him away from an infant he was shielding from her drunken, irate mother.
    He would rest his chin on the foot of whoever he was most wary of. That way he could catch a little nap when things were quiet, but be alerted by the movement of the one he was ‘watching’.
    Boone seemed to catch my thoughts before I expressed them.
    Never had such a loyal companion.

    Anybody want to guess his breed? (Sorry, Lassie fans, he was not a collie)

    My guess would be Malinois or perhaps Alsatian? (German Shepherd in America). But any dog really.

    pit bull? sounds like a good dog whatever the breed.

    My Shar Pei was like that. She protected my young grandson as if he were her own pup. When a dear friend of my daughter came over, my dog was happy to see her, as they were friends. But when the visitor tried to bend over and pick my grandson off the floor, my dog got between them, growled and showed her teeth. When I picked up my grandson and handed him to the visitor, all was well.

    My Shar Pei’s name was Sissy. She was my best friend for almost 14 years before she passed on.

    Boone was a German Shepherd Dog.
    I trained him (us) according to the “Khoeler Method of Guard Dog Training”. Only went as far as the Companion Dog section.
    Good training technique stabilizes their brain waves; allows them to truly shine.

    My boss bought Boone’s litter-mate: Boss also BOUGHT the book; his dog ATE the book and was NEVER happy.

    Forgot to mention:

    Boone chose ME . . . not the other way around. I think that is important.
    They seem to know stuff we don’t. (I named him after J. Allen Boone who wrote “Kinship with All Life”)

    I like this Self Help Book for Dogs, lol… Does that make Satchel dependent on Rob, can’t even have a thought of his own?… I tell ya, some self help book, lol… LOVE Satchel taking it to an extreme… :D…
    Good thing dogs do generally seem to find a balance…

    Just checked on the books (both hardcover; ‘Kinship’ used)
    .
    the Koehler Method of Guard Dog Training: $30 from Amazon
    .
    Kinship with All Life: $24 from Amazon
    .
    I have dominated this venue long enough.
    Thank you and Good Night!

    To russell5419: Good for you!! My little dog is a rescue also and wouldn’t trade her for anything.

    @unnormal

    It’s very important to let your dog choose you, no matter if you want a guard dog, a companion, or a herd dog.
    I am somehow not surprised to learn that some dogs can detect cancers or the onset of seizure. If you want to learn about unconditional love and acceptance, adopt a dog.

    @orinoco womble

    What you meant to say was have a dog adopt you. That way you will both be happy.

    The Art of Heeling

    Some dogs get it. Some don’t.
    Our second sheltie flunked his first obedience course.

    He was too busy trying to gather up all the other dogs, mostly sight hounds, into a tidy group.
