I don't think dogs are equal to kids. I also would do anything in the world in my power to protect my nieces.
What does that have to do with anything? You can believe kids are more important than dogs and still understand this:
It's a dog. It's an animal. Push an animal enough and they will defend themselves. A defensive bite is very different from an aggressive bite. Bites are not all equal. The idea that you must put down any dog that bites is asinine.
No kidding. I'd be happy to punt a kid or two for pulling tails and teasing. Or their parents, for allowing them to be such obvious brats to people and animals. But generally I have to resort to plain, "WTF is WRONG with you? GTFO of our space!"
Thus why I don't take Zander to Petco or anything. Stupid people and their stupid kids.
It's obvious that these forums are for people who believe their dogs are their "kids" and that prioritize them over and above everything else. THIS is why I don't fit in.
I dont believe in animal cruelty, neglect, puppy mill breeders, bsl etc etc. but frankly some of the threads that are created on here.... well, some people need to get jobs.
It was a papillon chihuahua. It didn't work out. The thing kept attacking my other dog and I wasn't having it. Neurotic little dog syndrome. Luckily I offered to foster it before the actual adoption so I had a choice whether I could handle it or not.
Since we are all free to our opinions and everything: Rubygirl, you're an idiot. You completely missed the point of everything anyone was trying to say to you. You're wrong in your interpretation of that dogs behavior, the end. There is no opinion on that. So sad.
I searched for threads with over 100 replies with the word "troll" in the content. Someone mentioned she had a couple of different names on the Pitbull forums, so I assumed she did the same thing on here. Smkie's thread about the abused dog was about the 10th one down (and the first one having to do with a similar subject) so I clicked it. Then it all came together
OHHHH no did I do it "Cesar's way" ? Lol
I didn't click over and over and treat and scream and wail in a high pitched voice. And then buy my dog an ice cream cone and sing a country tune while whistling Dixie. Nor did I leave my dog my house in the will in the chance that I might die before she did. I didn't buy her a Louis Vuitton set of puppy boots and a Gucci puppy jacket. I don't prioritize her over my children... Oh the humanity!,!!!!!
You guys (not all but most) are a joke.
I've wasted my time being here as I am (thankfully) not in the same puppy humping niche as the majority belonging to this forum.
I've got other things to do so have a very nice day with your clicker/treat trained puppy that is all that you have to live for!
