The Scottish Deerhound is a gentle and easy-going breed of dog. If they are socialized properly, they can live with any size dog. With proper socialization as a puppy, breeding and training your Deerhound should be perfectly fine living in a home with any other sized dog. Prey drive would be the only concern you should have, in which can be curbed or stopped with lots of socialization and training.

Are Scottish Deerhounds good watch dogs? Will they be vigilant at night and raise a ruckus if someone breaks in? I need a dog to sound the alarm at night so I can grab my pistol.

The Scottish Deerhound is not considered a watchdog breed. They are loving, gentle dogs that are quite docile when at home. I would not recommend one as a watchdog, as they are more likely to greet a stranger with a tail wag than a bark. However, they are a great companion dog.

If you are looking for a breed of dog whom will bark if someone breaks in, I would consider any of the typical watchdog breeds, such as the German Shepherd, Rottweiler, or Boxer. Although, there are several breeds of dogs that are more uncommon that are excellent watch dogs and great companion dogs. ie: Komondor, Catahoula Leopard Dog, Beauceron, Dogo Argentine, Plot Hound, Bloodhound, Boerboel and the Bouvier des Flanders. Please note that 'watchdog' and 'guard dog' are two different things. A watchdog will alert their owners to a stranger or intruder and will naturally put themselves in between their owner(s)/family and the stranger/intruder. While a guard dog is specifically trained to be used as a protection dog against a stranger/intruder.
