    A brother-in-law had one.  She was just right for them; a lovely spunky little dog.  It's the French version of a terrier, and of course, the Schnauzer is also one of the larger terriers.  Don't worry too much about him, terriers are tough.  

    I've never had a problem with my dogs around the house raccoons, but she killed a raccoon in the field once.  I was right there because we were pheasant hunting in North Dakota and I thought she was working birds.  They recognized each other as mortal enemies in a fraction of a second, and then they became a brown blur.  Blood and fluids flew for less than a couple of seconds, and it stopped with Kelly holding the dead 'coon by the neck and giving it a couple of good shakes just to make sure.  It was a good sized boar, only slightly smaller than my dog.  German short hairs are very strong and very fast.  They operate on an instinctual level, each needing no thought to attack.  And they operate at a clock speed that you and I can't even see, let alone match.
