    I actually started taking notice of the Malinois when I was in the military as it seemed like they were starting to be the breed most used by the K-9 folks. When I worked in Afghanistan it seemed like they were the dog used most searching vehicles coming onto base.

    We have 3 Belgian Malinois (and some pure breed pups that need to find their forever homes) as well as some other pure and mix breed dogs...yes, we are dog lovers. Folks will have their favorite breeds but I absolutely love the Belgian Malinois; their loyalty, intelligence and protective nature is tops in my opinion. I haven't retired yet so I am away quite a bit for work so I do feel better knowing I have some dogs that will protect our home and family.

    We were planning on eventually putting cameras in and then the wife had some concerns as our area has expanded; normally something I would do myself as I have experience with security systems, but it was a concern and I was not home at the time. A bit pricy and not as clean of an install as I would have done, but the wife is happy to have them. Our system can handle 16 cameras and we currently have 10 so it is on my list to add some more and clean up the original installation...on my list.

    I would recommend for anyone worried about break ins and such to consider a CCTV system and a dog or two patrolling their home.

    Plus dogs bring so much to your family...I'm watching my pure breed Papillon in his play around the apartment here in Korea as I write this. A gift for my wife when I bring him home in a couple weeks.

    appreciate your sharing, thanks. i agree with the idea that dumaguete is probably pretty safe compared to other places in the phils and also my home place in the US. part of the reason is an alert and responsive police force here and government officials who i think must really try to keep this place safe. thanks!!

    Simple but effective, though it only works when @home of course.

    Get a gun. It is better to be tried by one than carried by six.

    You might want to take something to the police station/barangay station and thank them for a fast response. Might be a good token for the future.

    Bad advice to give to a foreigner in the Philippines. It is illegal to own a firearm as a foreigner. You could get your significant other one...but if you check another thread here that could end up backfiring on you.
