personally I don't like the thought of a woman needing a big dog to feel protected.
I prefer a relationship between dog and human where the human is the one making decisions and caring and protecting their animal, not the other way around.

i think the thing that protects a woman, as well as any other human being , is a functioning social background and using their brain.
courage can get you killed when you don't use your brain to make decisions.

I like it. I know someone who would probably want one.

I disagree somewhat. I live in a really bad part of town- the DEA just shot a drug dealer down the street the other night. Lots of homeless people and drug dealers and such. I would feel MUCH safer taking my dog out at night if she were big enough to deter the creeps. No one's going to try to mug someone walking a big dog- more trouble than it's worth.

You would feel protected even with a small dog or no dog at all, if you were living in a social environment that is safe and supportive.
And this is what i meant.
It shouldn't be the dog that makes a human safe... it should be them being strong and intelligent by themself and having trustful people around them to support and help.
that people feel the need to protect themself with a dog is what I don't like. people should feel safe without an animal.
But perhaps that's pretty utopian. :(

Ahh, I see. I grew up in an upper middle class suburban area that was pretty safe, but even then there was still occasional crime. I'm coming to believe violence is just part of human nature- I can't see it ever getting better.
