What say you guys?
I think it's not a common breed and chances of you finding one may be difficult, and most likely a pricey breed if you can find one. However, if you have access to a breeder, it would probably be just fine. A rare breed would probably be significantly more expensive than a more common breed that would be similarly effective at the task.

I think a defense/attack type dog really needs a skilled owner, or at least professional training. For the typical smash and grab criminal, any dog that makes a noise is probably adequate.
