      Crimes.  Where do kidnappings occur, and rape generally?  Frequently its family members, and not necessarily within the home.

      over other deterrents - so that's what I did after a burglary. I lived alone and felt vulnerable, so found a GS rescue dog and named him Max. Looked very scary to strangers but was a complete softie to those he knew. Best thing I ever did for protection. That dog would have given his life to protect me. He jumped through and broke the front window once when he felt we were in danger. I always felt safe with Max by my side. Max was the only registered purebred I ever had - he was gorgeous. I love you Max - thank you for taking care of me. 1989-2001.RIP.

        be absolutely worthless against burglars, except that some people think they look scary.   That's the real deterrent with a dog - the appearance of deterrence.
