My two bassets are getting up there in years, and I'm thinking about adding a puppy to the family. At first, I automatically thought I'd get a beagle or some kind of scent hound, but now I am beginning to think it might be good for me in my rapidly approaching old age to have a protective dog (which the bassets are not

What do y'all recommend?

Now, I'm not at all close-minded to mixed breeds. One of the best dogs I ever had was a black Lab/great Dane cross. I've never really trained any of my dogs the right way, and I'm determined to do different with this one...

queensland heelers are great dogs!!! but they like lots of yard to run around in. and a few cows to heard maybe.

they sure will nip the heel of any intruder.

i've always like german shepards as well.

For Guard Dogs..German Shepards. I have 2 Clarrise (agent Starling), and Boo. Not to be mistaking with a Watch Dog..A watch dog will bark and alert you.. A Guard dog will Protect you.
Shepards are Intelligent, and will protect you to the death..naturally, without much training.
A lifelong friend of mine breeds GS police dogs in NJ, and I couldn't reccomend a better dog. Other dogs will protect you out of loyalty, but there is nothing like having an intelligent dog at your side. they train easier, and will amaze you.
Mine are trained attack/guard dogs. I sent them away for one month to a professional trainer. They will lay on the floor and let children play with them, but are a killing machine at my command. It's a secure feeling..especially in NYC..lol
Send me a PM if you would like the websight of my breeder..

I don't know the breed, but there's a dog on TV that goes to the fridge and brings his master a beer. I'd want one of those.

Based upon the dogs that have made a run ar me when i was a Meter Reader, I would have to go with Shepards first, and of course the ever popular Cocker Spaniel's used to really give me ahrd time when I came up on them...no kidding.

We had a German shepard when I was young, and it was truly the smartest, most protective dog we ever had. I don't want a long-haired dog, though, and I have a soft spot for hounds...

Well, I have a Rottweiller and she's good at barking if there is any activity around my house that shouldn't be there. I know this breed gets a bad rap for being mean alot but the Rott's I've been around have all been gentle, loving animals that are good around kids (big and small) and other animals (I do admit that Lola gets jeolous if I pay too much attention to her sister but it's nothing violent.) My sister has another female from same litter as Lola, however, and she doesn't make a peep if you walk in the house (nor will she come down-stairs to check things out). She does however bark at things like little rabbit yard sculptures and acorn squash in the garden. I have another friend who owns a Rott that is the absolutely most gentle, sensitive dog I've ever known - I mean really big baby (but babies are so darn lovable, you know)! Good luck finding the dog for you!

I agree with a austrailian Cattle dog better know as a queensland blue or red heeler, they are stay home dogs and they are family dogs they love to ride in the truck or go for walks or chase a ball they are just plain good dogs..

My boyfriend had Rotts for years, and they are great dogs. They were actually bred to help the Romans cross the Alps, carrying loads, herding cattle and of course, good watchdogs I could still see herding tendencies in his girl Rott, Gypsy. But,. then again, that's quite a bit more hair than your typical hound...

I'm wondering which has the least slobber, a Plott hound or a Black and Tan Coonhound?

LMAO!!! I love dogs and their personality quirks!!!

when i was growin up we had bulldogs. they get a bad rep like the rotts do but it's all in how they raised. i got a friend that raise blue pits and they ain't a one in the bunch that'll run at you. i been all over em to feed em when she went on vacation, they didn't know me from adam but they was the sweetest dogs i ever seen.

I agree bulldogs get a bad rap. It's all about the owners. But, my experience is that bulldogs and cats don't mix. And I got six cats.
