That's what you get for harrassing a man's dogs.

I have to admit that I laughed when they went after him.  As many of you know, I have a GSD and love dogs in general.

    I'm wondering why the dog was off leash...  And it seemed like the crowd in general was upset with the guy with the dogs, not the brick throwers. 

    I am guessing that something happened before the tape started rolling that wasn't captured.

    Not a smart move on the part of the brick thrower. I wonder what the whole story was there?

    I know my dog in that situation (despite probably being part GSD) would have probably barked a few times then come to hide behind me. Every time he hears a disturbance at night he'll go see if he can figure out what it is, woof, then retreat to the bedroom to wake me up.

    That guy should not have those dogs - he's not in full control of them. And kicking your own dog is bad form.

    May have something to do with why other people seemed upset with him.

    Also, does not excuse asshat brick thrower - they were leaving, you got what you deserved, jack.

    Are they in a muslim country?  Could it be that dogs aren't liked in those places?  Is that why they got "looks?" 

    I just remember something about strict muslims not liking dogs.  Could it be why the guy started s___?

    The guy with the dogs should have had them both on a leash, but the guy who threw the bricks deserved everything he got.

    We had the geological survey folks working within about a half mile of our house for a while as a kid. We told em our coon hounds would bark if they got close to the yard, but if you didn't throw stuff or yell at em they would go home. We came home one evening to a treed migrant worker. The hounds seem to have took exception to the throwing of rocks if my espanol understanding was correct. He was talking fast and pretty wide eyed so I didn't catch it all.

    Moral of the story is do not throw rocks at dogs. Some dogs take offense to you trying to hit them with projectiles.

    That's funny...  Before I got my LTCF, throwing rocks was the standard dog repellant for the ones that chased me while I was jogging.  Pick up a handfull of gravel, and aim for the face.  Most of the time, if I reached down to grab some, the dog(s) would take the hint and run off.  :shrug

    I wondered about the dogs being off leash. You can see the difference in the two dogs drive. One liked to bite and the other not so much. He's lucky they weren't Malinois.

    If a dog is in defense mode and you push it hard enough they will either run or fight. Throwing bricks ain't a good idea with GSDs.

    So, are you saying ...

    1. The dogs would defend your mother, but would not defend you and your dad?

    or

    2. The dogs would defend your mother, but you and your dad were like "...eh, she probably had it comin'."

    We had one old walker coon hound that was quite odd. He would bark at people close to the yard but would never chase until they threw something at him.

    If they didn't throw anything he would just get tired and go lay down. If you did throw something he would run out of the persons sight and stop barking. He then started the stalking of the person who threw a rock at him until he got within ambush range. It was the same if you yelled at him. He would run off and the person thought they scared him off. He just went into stalking mode if threatened.

    Same dog had one electrical coop guy stuck in his truck one time as well. Fellow threw a rock at him and he almost got him ambushed. The guy up the pole saved his buddy by yelling for him to get in the truck. The guy up the pole could load and unload the truck with tools and dog didn't care. Old fellow in the truck couldn't get out of the truck or the dog would eat him.

    Odd dog, never seen another like him. Guess he just hated getting yelled at or rocks thrown at him.  :shrug

    That's a great video! There's all kinds of justice in this world! I love GSD's and I plan to have one "some day."

    We had an old USMC GSD k9 back in 1967-68 that Dad procured through "connections." His handler was injured and they were going to put him down when Dad intervened and Joe "disappeared" from base thanks to a friend. He was super protective of me so much so that Dad couldn't raise his voice to me and Mom couldn't pick me up to give me a bath, which I hated. If I started crying in her arms, old Joe would go apes--t. Woe be unto the poor meter reader that tried to enter the yard if I was there playing. When I was 2 years old, I got out of the yard and wandered down to the main road and Joe grabbed me by the pants and held me back on the shoulder of the road until my parents got there. He was just too grouchy and mean to everyone but me and Dad had to get rid of him. We had another half GSD later and she was almost human in intelligence. Spooky smart.

    I'm not sure what my dog would do if someone threw a brick at me.  Probably nothing.  Sit there and look at me like I was retarded.

    Throw one at my wife or kid though, he'd take their arm off at the shoulder.

    Ahh yes! I remember the second one, half GSD and half Collie, Honey was the name. Spooky smart indeed! My little GSD/Chow/Corgi ( yeah I know funny mix) is also extremely smart and super protective of both the wife and I and will attack at the slightest cue from a stranger, be it verbal or physical. He went apes___ everytime Sarge 712 raised his hands or his voice when telling a story, while over at the house a few weeks ago.....He's 100 lbs of dog in a 50 lbs squatty body. The Akita/Shiba mix of the wife's?...Unbelievable vocabulary recognition, you can't say a thing around her, you have to spell, like you would around a 4 yr old kid.

    :rotfl :clap Dammit man that's funny, a real team effort! The mother was Chow/Corgi and the father was GSD....He must've seen her minding her own business, playing in the yard and sauntered on over and said," MMMMM, you're one fine b____!". A bootie call and several weeks later, Then came Bronson.

    Our two dogs are protective of the kids. If a stranger comes around, they interpose themselves between the kids and the newcomer until they decide that the new person is ok. Also, if a strange dog comes around, it is the usual bark/bristle/growl fest. We haven't had a strange dog come around while the kids are out... that might get messy.

    We had a Belgian Groenendale ( all  black - long haired cousin of the Malinois - GOOGLE it )  that was our family dog when my son was born.

    She came to us as an adult dog and had some trouble acclimating but was good tempered and intelligent.  Once my son was born she bonded with him and never let him out of her sight when he was little.  Even set up a complete ruckus when my wife closed the bathroom door to reduce the danger of flooding during bath time.  They were fast friends until we lost her some years later.  That was another one that was spooky smart.  We broke camp one morning up in the Bradshaw Mountains, loaded up and headed for home.  We'd gone about three or four miles down the forest service road when my son said, "Dad, where's Tico? ".  I looked at my wife - she looked at me and we had an "Oh sh*t" moment.  Turn the Blazer around, haul a** back to our former camp site and find the dog laying on the spot where we pitched the tent, regal as can be.  Didn't even get up when we pulled up in the truck.  Looked at us as if to say "Forget something?".    :facepalm    I miss her.
