Don't get a Papillion if you ever want to be alone, ever.
If you want to sleep through the night. Apparently waking you up with a ball in the mouth at 3am is perfectly reasonable to them!
If you enjoy being covered in white hair.
If you don't like newly invented and very strange vocalisations to get your attention.
If you don't like being stereotyped for having a small dog.
If you don't like people underestemating what an awesome dog you have.

2 am must b the magic time! I've had two days in a row of 3 am wakeups from Summer. Except she didn't want to play, she was busy 'guarding' and letting me know she heard a weird noise (that I never heard).

Too true. Of course I think the breed's awesomeness is a well kept secret.

Don't get an American Staffordshire Terrier if you have a heavy hand or are short on patience.

Don't get an American Staffordshire Terrier if you can't handle the ignorance and discrimination of others (You have to have a thick skin)

Don't get an American Staffordshire Terrier if you are bothered by the fact that your dog will really really really likes complete strangers.

Don't get a bully breed if you don't want to deal with dog aggression!

Don't get a dog if you think you have to dominante with a heavy hand.

Don't get a dog if you are afraid of barking, potty training, socializing or training.

Don't get a dog if you don't like unmatched companionship of another species.

Don't get a dog and expect it to be so independent that it doesn't need your presence in varying high doses.

Don't get a dog if you don't like doing things with dogs.

Don't get a dog if you are an obsessive-compulsive clean/neat freak.

Don't get a dog if you don't like dogs that behave like dogs.

Don't get a BC if you don't want a mischevious dog.

Don't get a BC if you don't expect dogs to think for themselves.

Don't get a BC if you live a very sedate lifestyle and can't accomodate the dog's exercise needs.

Don't get a BC if you like going to the bathroom alone. Mine opens doors, too. Sometimes on my guests.

Don't get a BC if you can't understand the difference between prey drive and the instinct to herd, and control each accordingly. (A BC chasing and biting children is not "herding"; it's just poorly behaved.)

Don't get a BC if you expect dogs to take everything with a light-hearted attitude. BCs R srs bsns.

Don't get a BC if you don't like being stared at. I mean it. There will be eyes on you at all times.

Don't get a BC if you want an extremely affectionate dog. While some are complete love sponges (like Eve) others (like Dakota) are more independent.

Do get a BC if you want a dog that's always thinking and keeping you on your toes. Do get a BC if you want superb companionship from an animal with such uncanny intelligence, you're amazed by them each day. Do get a BC if you like training dogs and have an interest in dog behavior, because these guys give you so much to study.
