|Charlie is more bark than bite, but he has stepped forward to try to protect me against unknown strangers approaching me before. Only ever at night, and only ever if they looked menacing. He'd step in front of me, lower his head and start growling at them until he could figure out if they were friend or foe. In the house though, he'd likely hold the flashlight for the burglar, bol.
Ria would cower and hide. She's extremely shy with strangers.
Maya would have barked, growled, and even lunged or snapped at anyone to try to break into my house. Only household people were welcome. Me. My fiance. My mother. Her husband. The kids. That was it. Anybody else tried to enter without prior welcome would be greeted by gnashing teeth and a vicious bark. But she also had a lot of insecurities and had the training behind her to boot. My uncle tried to walk right into my house once, without welcome, and having only met Maya once or twice prior, was a fool to try it. He cracked the door, poked his head in, hollered to me, only to get Maya lunging for him. He slammed the door shut instantly, knocked and waited for me to call her off and go get him, bol. She was fine as soon as I invited him in and told her "Off", but he learned his lesson on not knocking before entering. I always felt safest with Maya and wish she was still here.
