I had a cop for a neighbor when I was a kid. He had a dobie named Josie. One night, a nefarious individual decided to help himself to some of the possessions that the cop and his wife had in their house. He got one leg over the windowsill when he felt a slight pressure on the calf of his leg that was inside the house. Josie had snuck over and clamped onto it. He tried to move. She clamped tighter and growled. I found out about it when the flashing lights woke me up. The thug was more than happy to see the inside of a black-and-white.
Don't forget to fire a few warning shots into the ceiling - right after you've killed the intruder.
get a dog and don't worry about it.
Most burgulars are looking for the path of least resistance. If they break and enter to the ringing bark of a dog, more than likely they will leave. Most of the time, they will hear the dog before they get in the house.
Those who are not chased off by the barking dog deserve to catch as much lead as you can throw on-target.
My big 90lb dog has halted at least 2 break-in attempts since 2000. One, the guy took the locked sliding screen door off the track in my basement, went to try and open the sliding glass door, but stopped cold when she gave him a low and slow GRRRRRRRRRRR
(of course sitting there watching a movie in the dark, hearing the comotion of the locked screen being ripped off the door did cause me to make sure the Mossburg Sa-20 was loaded and pointed at the door.)
