any dog worth having will protect the person it loves. But it depends on how the human treats it.

Guide dogs are NOT Guard dogs or vice versa! For anyone thinking they are, inform yourself for goodness sake. As if becoming a Guide or Guard dog is not difficult enough? To hear Vera say "any dog worth having (what does "worth having" mean anyway????) will protect ....." is an insult to the intensive training, obligation and responsibility of the Guide or Guard dog.....this dog is a true go educate yourselves.

The wolves of the Sahara that became dogs were originally hired with this sort of task in mind, 20 to 150 millennia ago. We as humans are still benefitting from the deal, as are the dogs.

A wonderful and sensitive dog, Jolanda saved the day and a person's life. She is a treasure. Glad to see there has been an arrest.

Gosh I hope this lady moves. If these scum bags have it in for her, next time they might kill that wonderful dog. Better to move away.
