Very cute.  Are the dogs small since they go after the butt?!

We came across this warning posted on a little rural road on Maui.  Decided to stay in the car and take the warning seriously!

Pat- They don't mess around do they. Look how lush those trees look too. Is Winter over yet?

It is a relieve that the dogs limit themselves to biting a$$ only. Imagine if they were more indiscriminate

Pat while on vacation I usually run across a sign are too which gives me a good laugh; and this one falls in that category.

Maybe these dogs just bite donkeys!

That is one kind of dog I do not want to be frioends with.

Too funny!  It obviously works if you were afraid to get out of your car!  Great time to be in Maui!  Hope you are having a great time!

Posted by Debbie Hutchins almost 11 years ago

Pat, How funny!  If they sold that sign, they'd probably make a fortune!!

Pat, my dog is a toy poodle, so to be an ass-biting dog, he'd have to jump...he is an ankle biting dog. I doubt that a sign saying ankle-biting dog would get much attention from a serious robber.

Hi Pat ~ Well I guess they don't  pull any punches.  Very effective.


Posted by Elizabeth Bolton, Cambridge MA Realtor (RE/MAX Destiny Real Estate Cambridge, MA) almost 11 years ago

Butt-biting dog!  Hilarious!!!  That should keep 'em away!!

Posted by Diane Rice, SFR, SRES, CNC ( Rice Prprty Mgmnt & Rlty, LLC, South Holland, IL) almost 11 years ago

Cute shot....staying in the car was probably a good idea.

Posted by Emelyn Morris-Sayre, CRS, REALTOR, Lakewood/Denver 303-517-5116 (The Berkshire Group) almost 11 years ago

Hi Pat, That is priceless!  Did you see any of these dogs?  Maybe they just figured this sign would work better than a No Trespassing sign.

Posted by Susan Neal, Fair Oaks CA & Sacramento Area Real Estate Broker (RE/MAX Gold, Fair Oaks) almost 11 years ago

Unfortunately I have seen signs like this in Maui!
Your friend on the west coast,

Posted by Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS, South Puget Sound Washington Agent/Broker! (Fathom Realty Washington LLC) almost 11 years ago

Hi Pat... now THAT is a warning!  LOL  I wonder if they are butt high dogs or smaller ones trained to jump that high?

Posted by Steve Shatsky almost 11 years ago

You are too funny!

Posted by Ellie Shorb, Realtor DC, MD & VA Luxury Home Expert (Compass Real Estate) almost 11 years ago

Pat - I LOVE that sign. Reminds me of a sign I saw in Florida once - Trespassers will be Violated (created after the Kennedy fiasco)


Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

It's too cool that you noticed the sign. What an observation.

Good reason to stay clear of the area . Thanks for  the chuckle.

Posted by Terry & Bonnie Westbrook, Westbrook Realty - Grand Rapids Forest Hills MI Re (Westbrook Realty Broker-Owner) almost 11 years ago

Pat:  That is funny.  Another nifty takeway from your Hawaiian getaway.  I'm sure there is more stashed away in your photo folders.
