Yeah, you gotta be the alpha dog or they will act out in all sorts of ways.  Little dogs usually have a higher incidence of this because people think it's cute when they do crap that would earn a big dog an ass beating.  And most people's problems with dogs stem from them not exercising their dogs enough.  My aunt's boxer is a rough ridin' spaz because she never walks it and he stays in a crate all day during work/school hours.

yeah, this is where my job comes in handy, I'm home for 48 straight hours and at work for just 24. So when I'm home he's never in his kennel, unless I go out for something. and when I'm at work, he's only in his kennel until the wife gets home from work, then she usually takes him for a run or something.

Also, he's pretty good about entertaining himself in the backyard. He will just run in circles for 20-30 minutes, then come inside and sleep for 4-5 hours. then repeat.

Even though I'm technically breaking the law by having him in the city, I've never had any problems. I even walked him right by some animal control people a few months ago, and they just told me he was a good looking dog.

Pitt bulls are rough ridin' hideous, no idea why anyone would want one.  KCFDcat are you black? I heard on the news (re: Mike Vick dog fighting) that black people like to get mean dogs for street cred.  Please confirm or deny.

Thought about adopting a pit, there's a shitload of them out there.  But then I remembered that I don't like dogs that will occasionally freak out and maul a kid.

never had a problem in 4 years. the key is to be responsible, I never let him be around new people without me there, especially kids.  But really, he loves kids just licks the crap out of their faces.

my buddy has a lab and that thing scares me way more than my pit ever has

I think that most pit bulls are pretty nice dogs. The problem is that a larger than average percentage of them are pretty aggressive, and they can rip your face off.

It's all about ownership. A pitbull needs an owner that it can look to for guidance and to be strong, if you can't do this then you probably shouldn't be getting any kind of dog. just imho

Not all dogs are the same. Sometimes nature wins the nature vs nurture battle.

true, but it has historically been considered a defect if a pit is human aggressive, meaning they don't allow that dog to breed. obviously lately irresponsible breeders have not upheld this. but, if you get a dog from a reputable breeder with a proven bloodline it really shouldn't be a problem

They are really ugly when they aren't adorable puppies.

My mom always had dachshunds when I was growing up.  Good little dogs, except with small kids.   I want something a little big though.  Kinda digging border collies right now.

Really?  I always had them growing up.  Sister has one with 3 girls all below the age of 5. No problems.

For a bigger dog I'm with Stevesie. Labs or Bust.

They can be snippy with young kids.  Not gonna do anything terrible, just nip a face or something.  My mom's lhaso apso was the same was.  My nieces/nephew can do anything they want to my pugs and they don't give a crap, the most they will do is get up and move somewhere else.

This isn't really the best talking point. All dogs are kind of ugly, when you get down to it. Especially short-haired dogs that don't shed as much.

I don't really care for animals one way or the other, but Dachsunds are by far my least favorite dog breed.

Man, I can't imagine why anyone would think that.

They are just weirdly shaped.

And all the ones I've ever known were really mean.

Had a brittany growing up, probably would need to be more active than you would like but they are a good breed.

Pit bulls are terrible.  They are like the Juggalos of the canine world.

Been looking at some animal rescues' available dogs-  I'll probably go that route.  Getting a young lab or something like that would be fine with me.  It's not like I'm going to breed the dog, so it doesn't have to even be a purebreed.  Not real big on having to actually see a bunch of those dogs in person, some of them are pretty sad looking anf I would probably want to adopt all of them.

Get a boxer.  Do not crop the ears.
