Default Concern with Godfather Part II

I love the Godfather Part II, but I've got an issue that's plagued me for years. Right after Michael and Kay's bedroom gets ripped apart in gunfire near the beginning of the movie, the family "releases the dogs" to find the culprits and/or their bodies (Michael predicted they were dead). Now, the Corleone's were no doubt rich and powerful, but isn't it a bit much to believe that they'd have teams of bloodhounds (and handlers) all ready to go in case something like this ever came up? I mean, really. Year after year of feeding and training and housing all these dogs and nothing to use them for. Would they really have faded that expense?

Mr. Burns has hounds!!

Seriously, this may have been more common among the uber-rich/paranoid before modern security methods were invented.

Maybe they weren't his own, but i'm sure he had the police and associated resources in his back pocket. If they were in fact his own, it's not too far-fetched I guess. It can't be any more expensive than owning some horses, stables, and trainers (don't know if he had these) like any other billionaire.

I always thought that Roth had other people on the property who killed the assailants from far away and then took off.

even if they weren't their dogs, the police were already on hand from the party earlier that day, i'd assume.

they could be hunting dogs, as bison mentioned, or just plain old guard dogs. rich people tend to have those, especially if they're in the mob.

I dont see this as anymore far-fetched, then employing about 15 armed gaurds to walk around the property, like he had?

Yeah, but it's such a great movie that it's hard to tolerate what you perceive as errors. The supposedly solid gold telephone is another example--they toss it around like a balloon.

Bison points out below that they may have been simply been hunting dogs, which I hadn't considered.
