Do you think some animals, like dogs and cats, can sense evil?

I am under the impression my dog can warn me whether a person has good intentions with me or not. I've experienced it several times and now if my dog doesn't like you, I probably won't like you either.

I think they can sense if a person behaves weird. My dog gets scared when I'm drunk, cause he senses that I am different. One time when me and the first dog I had were on the train to north Norway a drug addict came walking past us, and my dog started to snarl. I think she sensed that this person was completely off, but you could tell so just by looking at him. The drug addict just looked at the dog and didn't dare to go past, so he just turned around.

Every postman in Manchester is evil?!? Where do they find so many evil recruits?

I think that animals are very good judges of character..

Has a post been done about racist dogs yet? This is true- dogs are often racist.

I think it depends on the breed of dog.
I once had a Fila Brasileiro and he sensed evil in anything that moved and would try to purge it from the world!
My Labrador retriever on the other hand is a true multiculturalist.

Yes, I think my dog is racist. He doesn't like immigrants very much. :D

My post:


By the way is it just me, or do dogs don't really like foreigners? My Great Dane always gets nervous and angry around foreigners and barks at them, he doesn't act the same way around Germans unless they try to attack or something.

I think it's a combination of smelling pheremones (which change with mood, intention, and drug use), and picking up "vibes" (literally, their furr is as much a part of their sensory system as anything.

I've come to trust my German Shepherd/Mastiff's "doggie sense" far more than my own.

If my dog doesn't like you, I don't like you.

They say that dogs and children never lie...meaning they shy away from people who dont mean well.

I will trust my dogs before most people. They've never let me down and they don't have any hidden agenda... unless you have a pork chop in your pocket! :D

Yes, that's why Alsatians and Dobbermans go mad at black people...or is that just because they correlate them with criminals? :D

It varies. My Border Collie is very sensitive, just looking at her in a certain way can make her really excited/happy or nervous/sad. It's like she can see into my soul.
She picks up on anger easily. In this way, she can "sense evil". She's also a moody bitch.

My CKCS is pretty oblivious to everything, though.

I have two toy poodles. If someone gets really mad or upset, they usually act scared and concerned. I know it seems crazy to say dogs can feel emotions such as "concern" but I think it's possible. Also, if I am really impatient or stressed they seem to sense this in my mood and they bark a lot ie. if I close a door or make sudden movements.

I've thought this might be true as well. I've seen dogs and cats react well to some people and not others.
