Default Dont Get a (your breed here) If......

I saw this topic on another forum and thought I would start it here because I found it very interesting. To many times the 'bad' things about a breed are just glazed over and I think thats one of the most important things to be mentioned because thats what ends so many dogs in shelters.

Amazing fleece braided leashes, toys and more!

Don't get any kind of Coonhound if you plan to leave it alone twelve hours a day and your neighbors have some kind of objection to howls that make their houses vibrate.

Don't get an Australian Shepherd if you object to hair on everything you own and control barking when playing with toys or other dogs.

Don't get a sheltie if you don't enjoy barking, yodeling, howling, honking, or any other creative noises they can come up with.

Don't get a sheltie if you don't plan on socializing the puppy very early and a lot- they tend to not like strangers.

Don't get a sheltie or a papillon if shedding bothers you. *plucks white hair out of her mouth*

Don't get a papillon if you ever want to be alone in your house.

Don't get a papillon if you want a 'house ornament' instead of a dog, they require a lot of attention.

Don't get an APBT (American Pit Bull Terrier) if you want to take your dog to dog parks and you don't want to seperate your dogs when they aren't being supervised.

Don't get a corgi if you don't want a fur covered couch, if you don't want to spend half the day laughing at your dog, if you don't want to keep all food locked up in a vault.

Don't get a malinois if you don't plan on spending 25 hours a day being physically active with the dog, if you don't want to be screamed at every time you glance away from them, if you don't own a huge supply of balls, tugs and kongs.

Don't get a corgi or a malinois if you don't want a dog who is smarter than you.

Dont get a yorkie if you want an inanimate object... they are typical terriers in a small package.

Dont get a yorkie if you dont like brushing hair, ALOT, like almost everyday.

Dont get a yorkie if your uncomfortable with strangers approaching you to coo over your adorable dog everywhere you do.

Don't get a great dane if:

You have a coffee table
You don't like drool
You don't want to share your couch/bed
You are sensitive to being whipped by tails
You don't want a 150 pound shadow with you at all times, including "private" times.
You don't like clingy needy dogs who hate being left alone
You put food on your counter tops and expect it to still be there 5 minutes later
You are really into landscaping and don't want trenches in your yard
You don't have a high threshold for pain
You hate dogs that snore
You hate dogs that shed
You don't want to spend tons of money on food, supplies and vet bills

Do get a great dane if you want a loyal friend like no other who makes it known every single day that the world revolves around you.
