  1. They don’t need to released the dog breed it’s always the number one dangerous breed a pit bull or an rottwiler german shepherd or “pit bull mix”.that the only group of breed that caused the most death.

  2. In a case like this, which appears to involve one or more guard dogs, they certainly do need to release breed information. A range of breeds could be involved, including: Belgian malinois, cane corso, Dogo argentino, presa canario, rottweiler, pit bull…

  3. Ha! You actually caught a photo of a pitbull via Google Street. Sitting right there at the gate.

    I’m puzzled as to how these businesses actually conduct business w dangerous dogs guarding the premises. Do they use phones from their trucks? Seems like these places actually stifle making a profit with guard dogs.

    • From a business owner’s perspective, guard dogs are often “cheap alarms.” Not cheap it turns out if you are sued in a state like California that has “strict liability.”

  4. Not gonna publicly say “How” but it doesn’t take much to remove guard dogs from premises, trained or untrained if a
    “professional” thief wants access. If there’s enough money involved, dogs are not going to stop them. The only thing dogs will stop is an amateur.

    It’s much easier and cheaper to take out dogs than learning how the alarm system and cameras work, where they’re located and how to disarm and disable all the electronics.

    Using dogs for property guarding in a first world country business isn’t about saving property. It’s about intimidation and looking tough.
