From the Mama:
I just hate when people assume that a big dog breed is naturally more aggressive than a smaller one. Pits, Bullies, Rotties, Dobies and more have all gotten a bad rap. I so believe that the human is responsible for the way a dog turns out. Whether it is inbreeding, poor training or neglect, ultimately we must take responsibility for our dogs actions. I have seen my 7 pound Llasa scare the padoodle out of a 150 lb Rottie, when the Rot could have finished off Bilbo in 2 bites!
Cesar Milan (The Dog Whisperer) on aggression and breeds:
I deal with a lot of red zone cases, and I often hear people incorrectly blaming the breed. Any breed can cause trouble. The difference between an aggressive Chihuahua and an aggressive pit bull is that the bigger breeds can cause proportionately bigger damage.
This week when you see a bigger breed, try not to assume that he will be aggressive. Always inquire whether he is okay to love on, and if so, give him a little scritch behind the ear!
Now back to Dory....
At the end of July my friend Tank was MUGGED by a dog that had poorly trained humans!!
Click below to read Tank's scary story!
Tank's poor adorable ear was nearly torn from his handsome head!!
Luckily he survived this incident with no lasting after effects!! Sometimes I wish there was a way to make sure that humans went to a training school BEFORE they are allowed to keep furry friends.
Tank has chosen Animal Haven to have Mommy send 20 green papers to in his name. I will get Mommy up to her playroom on Sunday to make sure she gets the green papers in a card !!
Happy VPKC Friday to All!!
