SHOW US YOUR DOGS!

I was saying to my partner the other week that you'll always find something to love about any dog (unless it's a chihuahua). 
My first dog was a 12yo mongrel that we got from the Dogs Trust. She bonded with us pretty much immediately and was always perfectly behaved. When she had to be put down with a blood vessel tumor we were left with Jake who was pining away so we had  to look into taking on another dog sooner than we wanted. Went to the SSPCA and the dog he liked the best was another mongrel that was 4yo and had clearly never been trained. She was reactive, impulsive, destructive and had to be walked early morning or late at night for the safety of the general public. Even a year after we got her I was pondering asking the rescue to take her back. We'd been to a few different training classes and paid through the nose for them but she couldn't even be let off her lead as shed just bolt. Comparing her to my old girl was like comparing chalk and cheese.
Eventually we found a good behaviourist who was able to help us with her and now she's pretty reliable outdoors. Wouldn't be without her now but she's still totally different in both looks and personality to our first girl.
If anyone in the room farted or burped she'd actually get up and leave the room. emoji38.png

Oi my wee chihuahua is a brilliant wee dog!!!! Lol

My only dealing with the breed was when a friend (now ex-friend) got two. Both of them turned out to be irritating little shits although that probably had something to do with the fact they were treated like babies. I've a video somewhere of the pair of them trying and failing miserably to interact with our two dogs.

Renton is really well-natured but when wee dogs get aggressive with him or in his face too much you see him wanting to bite them in half but shows a bit of restraint. However, if they've got a coat or harness on he'll pick them up by it his teeth and launch them.

:lol: 100% would pay to see.

In the video I'm thinking of my partner was throwing a ball for Jake who liked a game of fetch. Skye was trolling him a bit by running after him and making him think she wanted the ball. When Jake returned with the ball and with Skye in tow the pair of crotch-sniffers just stood there and yapped at them. That was them "playing" apparently. When their owners visited us the two of them would jump onto our sofas and snarl at our two if they did the same. One of them was sort of tolerant of other dogs but the other was a snappy wee shitebag. The only time I have ever seen any aggression from Jake was aimed at this little monster.

I've got a great photo somewhere of the feral one snarling at Skye who is clearly giving it a "f**k you going to do about it tiny?" look.

I know what you mean mate, she's been brought up around boxers so she's developed a lot of the characteristics of a boxer...... she's nuts. Id never buy another one, the mrs bought it.

We regularly come into contact with a rowdy gang of Chihuahuas at the park with ringleader ‘Nacho’ the main barky wee shit. Luckily Harris doesn’t bother with them as I reckon he could probably fit all three in his mouth at once if he wanted!

I don’t know about the rest of you but we find that 9/10 its the wee dogs you meet that are anti-social and aggressive rather than the bigger dogs.

100% this.

Blake my Labradoodle is some size now. He gets an awful time from the ankle biters. 

He absolutely loves playing with other dog but is too glaikit to understand not all dogs are the same, he's getting there though.

The angriest dog we regularly encounter on walks is a Scottish terrier (not the white west highland type but the black one).

They do give you a right laugh . There's at least once a day where i'll just get a smile on my face because of him. Or he runs into a glass door (again...) and you end up totally buckled....

She knows it well. Clackmannan Tower. Ochil hills in the background.

Young Ruby was getting a bit too hairy and matted so we sent her for a clip today. I genuinely did not recognise her when I went to pick her up.

Munro has his first Outreach Therapy session today at a mental health unit at Auckland Hospital. He’s such an awesome dog, super friendly and loves being around people so thought it would be a good idea to enrol him into the SPCA project.

Will be there once or twice a month.

Looks like a German Shepherd, I've had 2 white ones myself.

Brilliant dogs, except if you have dark carpets, clothes or car upholstery.
