I recently got a Doberman to help guard my property, as I live alone and want to have some extra protection. I know that Dobies can be aggressive towards strangers, but I've trained mine extensively and he's always been a great guardian without any incidents.
However, the other day, I had a very hostile individual trespass onto my property. I asked him to leave and warned him that I had a protective dog. He continued on, and my Doberman ended up attacking and killing him in what was clearly an act of self defense.
Now, I'm wondering if I could potentially face any legal issues because of this. I didn't want anyone to get hurt, but I also needed to protect myself and my property. Would the fact that my dog was defending me and my property be enough to clear me of any legal issues?
Thanks for your help!
