1. There are leases that say no breed of bully dog is allowed.

2. There are health problems known to disproportionately affect some breeds. Adoptive families/people need to know (mixed breeds aren't always obvious by sight/some folks can't tell) because of likely future financial commitment.

Just sayin.

Yeah, f*ckwits have really screwed up some kinds of dogs, just to accentuate the look of certain features.

Always best to go for a mutt, particularly from your local rescue shelter.

Personally? Lu's a mutt, Bedlington lurcher. Twiggy's a purebred English Springer from champion stock; but on the other hand, Spaniels are bred for their brains.

I prefer to visit the dog before deciding to adopt. If it looks like a Chihuahua, I'm not adopting, because I don't like neurotic breeds. Conversely, if you are adverse to "attack" dogs, don't adopt ones that look like them. My opinion could change as I never made interacting with dogs an occupation, but I feel confident that if the dog you adopt doesn't present the physical characteristics of the breed you dislike, you have as good a chance as any of getting a good dog. I've met bad Labradors. It was a sad day for me. And I have met plenty of good Boxers. And my parents Chihuahua-beagle mix is OK. His next-litter brother got more beagle genes and is more fun and less of an asshole.

Well about that ...
Any "breed" you know is just a set of descriptors that someone declared was the definition for that breed.

Then they inbreed it until the dogs develop health problems due to shallow gene pool. This is why you don't want a purebred. Don't even get me started about dog breeders, puppy mills, etc.  with their profit motive above all else.

What you should get is a mixed breed, preferably from a shelter.

I realize I didn't explain myself wellugh in my initial post but I was able to get a quick post before a meeting.

I have pet allergies, I've noticed after years of this there are certain breeds that trigger my allergies worse than others, I know allergies aren't breed specific, and it's determinate by dander, but I'll be damned if it isn't true for me:

Bulldogs
German Shepherds
Huskies

Almost all of these trigger some allergic reaction from me. However I have very little allergic reactions to any type of puppy.

I'd prefer to know, or have a solid idea of what breed is present in a dog before I adopt, and with three kids, I prefer not to adopt an adult.

I think you're proving the SPCA's point.  Most breed based legislation only considers whether a dog "appears" to be a pit-bull, not the actually breeding.  The SPCA is effectively removing themselves from the enforcement of these laws by not characterizing the breeding.

First of all, black labs should be labs of color. Secondly, it's not the breed of dog that matters, but what breed the dog identifies as. Such as so called Chihuahuas have always identified as a cross between a rhinoceros on a very bad batch of meth and a mentally challenged demon that just starts pissing everywhere when it hears a doorbell.

I pick it up the minute he drops it when we are on a walk and reward him with a treat, I prefer not to think about what happens when he is out in the fenced yard. One day I left the poop bag and turned my back for a minute and he jumped up and grabbed it off the shelf and preceded to devour it. He left the torn bag for me. He is a rescue and I think he was left out all the time.

Not always. Our last mutt from a shelter had hip dysplasia and a tendency to develop mast cell tumors. Eventually she died of liver cancer. The longest lived dog I've owned was a rescue greyhound. She lived to almost 15. Greyhounds are awesome purebred dogs that are functionally bred by expert breeders, not idiots that breed their intact biatch to whatever is available on a whim or by accident. That's the main problem in pet breeding.

It's called recycling.

Seriously, though, this is a pretty common thing for dogs to do. If you have a cat it might snack on the tootsie rolls it finds in the litter. This is part of the clean up instinct that mother dogs use to clean their pups but does happen in males. In some cases it is a nutritional issue meaning that the dog is not getting what it needs from its normal diet. Your vet might suggest a different food.

Besides the normal idea of making sure the poop is picked up you can help break the habit by sprinkling meat tenderizer or Tabasco sauce on the stool. The dog will associate the bad taste (the what?) with the stool and stop eating it. Strangely, dogs prefer eating old, hard feces to fresh soft ones. They really love frozen "poopsicles". Though if you are actually going around seasoning turds you might as well clean them up.

2. I've only ever had shelter dogs and then mostly mutts.
3. That said, are we going to have to stop all forms of identification and labeling because "it sends the wrong message?" (whatever that means) Are we going to have to have to stop calling farm animals "pigs" and "cows" because that's derogatory?

People aren't smart enough to understand what words actually mean, and how not to draw incorrect conclusions from their use, so we should just stop using words.

They're having trouble getting people to adopt dogs that are part pit bull (or other "dangerous" breed) so they think removing the breed name(s) from the signs will help.

They'll have to come up with another way of listing the dog's tendencies though, as most people don't adopt based on looks alone. They want to know if they're likely to be aggressive, docile, good with kids, "good" at digging, jumping, or escaping, have bad hips, etc. So much of that information is already listed by breed that they won't eliminate breed names even if it isn't on their signs.

The one in the picture has always been as calm and sweet as she could be with her only issue being not coming when called during certain situations -- she doesn't like having to come inside, and because she doesn't wander, she'll stay put and give me a look of "fark you I'm just laying here and I don't want to walk 10 feet to lay there"...that's the downside of having a smart dog -- they push boundaries in smartass ways.

But my other dog that passed away in February, a blue heeler blue tick mix...she was a damn monster for her first year and a half.  We never had bathroom issues, but damn did she like to chew shiat up and she had sooooo much energy.  Her first two years I had to dedicate a minimum of four hours a day (usually 8+) just to play and work with her.  After that....she was the smartest, most obedient dog I've ever had (outside of her boundary-pushing).  The only thing she wouldn't do was fetch and retrieve because it was too easy and bored her.  But my other dog requires me to throw a frisbee a minimum of 50 times a day....every day....for 13.5 years now....regardless of the weather or time of day....yes, I've been known to play frisbee at 3 am in the rain....typing of which....she want's me to play....seriously....

Hooferatheart: hashtag.acronym

Unless it's one of those newer pure breeds like a Blue Heeler or a Catahoula that's bread to be a working dog and not for looks.  Those dogs are basically clusterfarks of multiple other breeds and they're damn smart.  My dog is a mix of those two.  And to think she was going to be taken to the pound over 13 years ago...the cat was a rescue too.  Sparky is one and a half and Leecie is fourteen.

Your dog looks like it ate the other two dogs, and perhaps a few cats too.


Ever since the turned two she's gotten a bit wider every year regardless of how much or little she eats or the amount of exercise she gets (which is an imperial f*ckload...not to be confused with a metric f*ckload).  Now, my other dog, she was a fatass with a food addiction...she'd root the yard for grubs and bugs for boredom snacks if she couldn't sneak something out of the trash or steal someone's plate when they weren't looking.  She'd slowly and gently pick up your plate and walk off with it, not making a sound.  She even learned to pick up silverware first so it wouldn't make a noise when it would slide on the plate...too smart for her own good...

brainlordmesomorph: Are we going to have to have to stop calling farm animals "pigs" and "cows" because that's derogatory?


Well, we had to stop using those words at the bars about the drunk UW-Madison sorority girls.
