Bella, my English Bulldog, plays with anyone who comes into the house.

However, I have never had anyone unfriendly in the house. If someone came in with ill intent, I like to think a dog (any dog) can sense that. I have no idea what Bella would do if we were both home and someone tried to break in. I like to think that she'd bark and attack. LOL!

(The thought of her attacking makes me giggle.)

Fargo (Jack Russell mix) would chew through the guy's kness.

Ancho (Mini Foxie) would go for his face.

Then they'd switch. I would think my cat would join in just to feel included.

I honestly don't know. They bark ferociously enough at strangers on the porch that you'd have to be daft or armed to try breaking in. It's possible that someone with ice water in their veins could sweet talk them into thinking they were a new friend once they were in the house, if they came in through the door. Without one of us letting the person in, I kind of doubt it though. I'm thinking one of the girls would bark from a safe distance, probably not bite, and one would be threatening close up, possibly but not necessarily bite. I sure hope I never find out. It's the kind of neighborhood where you have two pit mixes because you like them, not because you feel you need the protection.
