The 'cute puppy/dog' epidemic?
People are continuously asking questions about the 'best' small and/or large breed dog.
So many answers are based on 'cuteness'. What?
Then there are the questions on 'what can I do about my hyper Boston Terrier?' Cute little pup wasn't he? Did they do any research about the breed?!
Also seeing many questions referring to 'which should I get?' A Labrador or a German Shepherd? These breeds are at 2 different ends of the spectrum.
What has happened to picking a puppy/dog pure bred or mixed based on temperament and genetic traits?
I know it is difficult to access mixed breeds when adopting from a shelter, but taking some time to get to know the dog is important before you bring it home and find out it wants to kill your cats.
Am I the only one seeing this running rampant?
Then you have the herding breeds.....more ignorance.
I answered a question awhile back. The person adopted an APBT/mix (?) from the shelter. Got it home and it killed his cat.......duh?!!! Not ALL are prey driven but it would have been a GOOD idea to test that before exposing your poor cat to possible death. Of course, the dog went back because it was 'agressive'.
Daisy: You have a 'cute' dog. But you did your research and KNEW what you were getting for better or for worse!
What a great mix.
