@ Shiloh, I love rats they are wonderful pets. I can't stand yapper "dogs" though. Your mom's dachunds are probably fiercer than the dobermans because the dobermans were not allowed to misbehave because of their size. It bothers me that smalls dogs are allowed to behave so atrociously, yet they are allowed in more places (housing, hotels, restaurants) than the bigger dogs. If they are going to be called "dogs", then they should have to be held to the same behavioral standards that big dogs are.
Brianna Michelle lol yeah.. no my mom wouldn't tolorate that.. she likes dobermans most but got small dogs because then if they can't go out, its ok.. just run around the house lol. They're good though.. Nixi will roll on her back if you point at her with finger guns and say, "BANG!" LOVEIT
I'm sure there are decent owners out there who treat their dogs like dogs, and not as children. I've just never had the pleasure of meeting a small dog that was pleasant to be around. I was bitten by a yorkshire terrier when I was really little, so I'm sure that didn't help my outlook lol
I love large breed dogs and despise your typical little ankle biter but I do disagree with this post because my small dog(who went through ALOT of training) is very adorable. And also most domesticated dogs were bred from fox hybrids =}
I got a corgi/jack-russel mix....best dog Ive ever had...the jack russelll made him a little headstrong but I think the corgi part of him just made him wonderful...I will ALWAYS have a corgi mix if I can help it
I don't necessarily mean biting, just general misbehaving. I guess I just mean that the yappers are too humanized by their owners (or at least that seems to be the general trend). I don't bear them any ill-will, but I do not think they deserve the title "dog" and I especially do not appreciate hearing them bark at everything with a pulse.
Daschunds were selectively bred to follow badgers down holes, kill them, and drag them back up. They are the most badass small dogs around.
For reference, badgers have occasionally been known to fight bears and win.
Badgers > Bears.
Dacschunds > Badgers.
Ergo, Daschunds > Bears.
they don't bite.. I'm talking how they treat their toys. And the dobermans were trained better because they were in a house with me and my sister.. little kids. And we lived in a bad neighborhood... soo yeah.. they were trained to attack on command. /win
