Things differ on a case to case basis. Adding domesticated animals, which are considered weapons in a legal sense, complicates matters. If you are in a state with a form of the Castle Doctrine or a "Make My Day" law, simply shooting or killing an intruder by your own controlled actions will be justifiable.
