Last night (or I should say this morning around 3am) I was wide awake! Normally when this happens my mind runs wild (usually about winning the power ball of at least 150 million)!
Anyway, I started thinking about a do it all personal protection/property guard dog.
My first love for any breed will always be the American Pit Bull terrier. In my honest opinion; the most courageous breed pound for pound. Their tenacity and drive is unlike any thing I have yet to see. However, they were never bred to be a guard dogs but were bred to be a gladiator in the pit. I know this breed extremely well as I have owned at least 20 and I currently own 3.
I currently have Caucasian shepherds protecting my property. This is a VERY serious breed! One thing that separate them from other breeds is that they are a defensive driven dog. In a nut shell; as long as a stranger is away from my yard; my Co's are fine. Owe, but God help you If you come close or into my yard! They are normally very relaxed and chilled. But when they think there is a problem; their fast response is something to behold. My 200lb male was a cute cuddly baby boy that loved to get his stomach rubbed. But in a flash' he would turn into a monster once a stranger comes by. I have had Co's for almost six years now.
Begian Malinois is one fire cracker of a breed. I have never owned one but their motor is very impressive. Their prey drive is also VERY impressive.
So I started to imagine "creating" this breed in the lab. Here is what I came up with:
1) APBT male X Co female = F1
2) Malinois male X F1 = F2
3) F2 male X Co female = F3
F3 will be the "finish" product. I expect F 3 to be:
a) very courageous and willing to die to protect.
b) extremely high prey drive but equally high defensive drive
c) Very high stamina but not excessively erratic energy
d) highly intelligent
e) extremely athletic and agile
f) bullet fast in responding to a threat.
g) very loving with its family members.
h) phenotypically F3 male would be about 95-130lbs. With hair length similar to that of a German Shepherd (or a bit shorter).
NOTE: I WILL NOT DO THIS NOR DO I BELIEVE IN DESIGNER BREEDS! I DO NOT PROMOTE ANY ONE DOING THIS.
Again, I could not sleep and this was going on in my mind around 3am this morning.
I would like to get you guys thoughts on this.
