I lived in East Africa as a teenager and our 2 guard dogs protected us when our home was invaded by thieves one night. The invaders fled the 'vigorous' attack by our dogs and didn't manage to steal anything or attack us (as had happened in several local houses over the previous few weeks - one man being killed, another seriously injured).

Saw most of these on the news. All dogs have a keen sense of smell and hearing. Another great reason to own a dog.
