There is no love there, though they do agree on some points.

Hope you won't mind me butting in here,
I dono' if I agree ..
although rescue animals can be very rewarding,
also since they started out with a disadvantage,
they are scarred and therefore can be unpredictable.
My own lab/collie (6 months of her life unaccounted for)
but in that period she grew to intensely dislike
and fear men, and to this day, tho' in others ways
well adjusted, would 'go' for a man,
so I feel she had been mistreated early on
before I got her.
She is very bright intelligent and loving and
100% fine with women, children, cats and other dogs.
Just a thought..to add on here
Good discussion you have going.
I've had a few that were scarred beyond repair.
(so I thought at the time)
The vast majority are especially loving. As if they
knew they got a second chance.
With the popularity of a show called the Dog Whisper
we are now realizing that dogs that were thought to
be "too damaged" can, in fact, be well balanced pets.
(look into Caesars training techniques....his methods
would help your lab/collie mix)

I think that's part of the reason why pits are so
close to my heart. No matter what kind of abuse they suffer,
even dogs that were trained TO fight, all they want is
to love someone. Most places won't give them the chance.
They are automatically euthanized b/c of what breed they
are and what men used them for.

One was found a couple of days ago, in the 9th ward,
that had been tied up and left. He was so emaciated he
couldn't even stand. He had to have emergency surgery
to remove a bowel obstruction, he'd been eating plastic
trying to survive. Villalobos Rescue center rescued
him and is trying to save his life.
If he does survive he'll be up for adoption.
Pits are resilient. Even when ppl try their hardest to
kill them.

Not a problem, I understand what you're saying about some starting out with a disadvantage. Actually the German Shepard we have now may have been abused by someone.. he's a lovable dog, but somewhat of a scaredy cat. Thunderstorms, or any loud noise and he just goes and hides in a corner.
And he's mostly shy around new people I've noticed... I suppose if a burglar broke in, he'd probably either want petted or the burglar wouldn't even know he was there, because he was hiding.
I don't know if you've seen the commercial
for a product called a "thunder shirt?"

It actually works. Not just for loud noises
either. Many dogs act better, less worried, in
public with them.
It gives them a feeling of security.

IMHO, some guy breaks into your house, he'd be lucky to just get shot with a neon pink gun!
Sweetie, it may be pink but I'd bet
it's just as effective as a non neon weapon;) lol

I'll have to do some research on it... but many thanks for the reference!

But overall Artic, he's actually a really good dog. I'm just secretly sort of glad he's the way he is, instead of being overly aggressive towards unfamiliar people. He's large enough he could probably do some harm... and though it may sound a little selfish, I don't need a lawsuit on my hands.

The possibility is there that he may be protective, if one of the family were in danger of being harmed. Thankfully, that opportunity has never come about for him, and hopefully it never does.

Doesn't sound selfish at all.
Insurance companies are funny about dogs.
I'm not sure about where you live but here
if you own certain breeds of dog they can
cancel your insurance.
Pits (of course) but also Rottys and Doberman.
And if your dog bites someone, even on your own
property, your liable.

Just b/c he's not ppl aggressive doesn't mean he
isn't an excellent guard dog. Most dogs, of any
breed, won't let a stranger hurt a member of its
own pack.
