The thief picked up a big decorative vase in the hallway and smashed it over the dog's back...

That's very sad. Such criminals should be executed, IMO (I draw the line at violence of any sort).

However, if the dog was a good guard dog the thief never would have made it to the vase. That said, he could just as easily have shot the dog. So dogs are not fool-proof. However, everything I've ever read indicates that most thieves will skip a house with a dog, even if it's just a little yippie chihuahua.
