I do remember the Tosa inu as being very quiet compared to other Guardian breeds

Athena very rarely barks and
Sal NEVER barks, he will make a whining sound if I leave him in the car alone but its not really a bark. I have asked several of my neighbors if they have ever heard my dogs and they have all said that they never hear my dogs.

So I would say American Staffordshire Terriers are very quiet if raised correctly.

Tosa were very big in the Bronx projects because they would protect so quietly.
My self defense buddy came home to find a part of a finger in the grate they had protecting the windows.
He went next door no one heard a thing..

BY GOD - DO NOT GO WITH A COLLIE EITHER!!

Colt barks a lot. Of course, I knew this beforehand, and some say their herders are quiet, but I think, as a rule, most herders are barkers. (at least Collies and Shelties are).

Basenjis can be quiet. What you would have to worry about is when he or she is alone. They can make a crying sound that can be very alarming. No, they do not bark and they do not yodel unless their emotions tell them to. But, as I said, the crying can scare a neighbor who doesn't know that you have a basenji or what one is. They may think that there is a child alone. That is, of course if you have a basenji that cries.

In my experience yeah, Collies are barkers but on the otherhand I have had some VERY quiet Collies. One of the I have right now. Bailey is very vocal. Chloe rarely barks unless Bailey is on a barking tangent. My last RB Collie (Timmie) ONLY barked when the kids in the neighborhood were on their four wheelers out by the woods. He NEVER barked when someone was at the door or any other time. He would bark when I asked him to "speak". The Collie I had as a kid didn't bark either except in play.

Well, as far as apartment sized dogs go...Cavalier King Charles spaniels are relatively quiet. Some pugs are quiet, some are incredibly noisy...most mini schnazuers are very barky and it's an ear piercing bark at that.

It really does all come down to the induvidual dog and some training. My Aussie is the biggest loudmouth at work, pretty much totally silent at home.

My Sibes are very quiet until the mention of dinner, a walk, and especially RUNNING come up. Then they start talking but rarely ever barking

For a moment I thought you said, "Shibas"!
