In this article, we’re going to give you examples of the different breeds of dogs and how they can fit into your life. Some of the things we’ll cover are how dogs aren’t created the same, what are the common characteristics of some dogs, and why you should ultimately base your decision solely on the fact that you’ve done your homework. Dog or “pet” of your choice and you and your family will agree that your new arrival is perfect for your home. It’s a permanent decision, you wouldn’t just come back or bring it to your child, right?
Not all dogs are created equal, and not all dogs follow the lead of other members of their breed. It’s best to start with this statement. We all know that the Golden Retriever has a tendency to separate and the Poodle is very loving, which goes against everything you know about either of these breeds. While there are always exceptions to the rules, there are enough dogs that don’t follow the lead of other breeds that we so research before adding the breed to our beloved family. Remember, dog breed traits are guidelines so that you can make an informed decision about a breed. It may not describe the specific animal you are trying to purchase. Always be familiar with the dog you want to buy in an individual standard, not outside of the breed standards.
For example, some dogs are known to be hyperactive and boisterous beings who have the ability to be extremely destructive and incorrigible if not trained and monitored at all times. These breeds are Jack Russel Terriers, Labrador Retrievers, and Collies. Jack Russell Terriers also dig when they are bored, while the lab shows they are unhappy with urinating on their house floors, which shows they are not completely domesticated. While this may be true, I am sure that your angel will be a perfect angel.
Some breeds bark terribly or, worse, howl. The Boarder Collie, whose bark pierces the lungs, is one of these dog breeds. You also have the infamous Howling Beagle and let’s not forget the barking poodle. If you have a shy dog, he will overreact to any sound or movement and will also bark, usually in small breeds. These dogs include the Chihuahua, the Pomeranian, and the Lhasa Apso. The Chihuahuas are usually very difficult to keep at home and appear to be known as biting or, more commonly, “knuckle-biters”. City dogs tend to be unhappy and scare all neighbors.
You finally have the breeds that no one can say a bad word about, including the Golden Retriever. These dogs are calm, kind, and gentle, but this mix likely contains a chew somewhere. Then we have the other form of breed that no one can say good about, the pit bulls and their cousins who only get bad press for being sold. If you love the breed and are ready to gently train them and teach them that you love them like any of your own children, you may have the best pet in the neighborhood.
