Breeds You Don't Like

    I view any negative notion when it comes to other breeds for myself, as more of a personal preference thing. I could never hate a dog simply over it's breed and never did while growing up. To me now, that would be pretty hypocritical coming from an owner of a breed that is carried this way the most, from the general population.
    With that stated, I would never seek to own any toy breeds based on a first response of personal preferences. Along with, labs, boxers, english bulldogs, great danes, cocker spaniels, and beagles. I was never intrigued by these mainly, yet, I still have met at least one of these from each listed here, that I saw as a good dog to it's owners.

    Growing up without a dog isn't rational either :lol: So now I'm going to pry into your life a bit, hope you don't mind! Was this because your parents weren't pet people and didn't allow a dog? Did you ever ask for a dog? Or was it not until you grew up that you decided to have a dog? Feel free to ignore me. I'm a nosy SOB sometimes :lol:

    I don't like Arabs, conformation-wise. I LOVE their temperaments though!!

    Hahaha it sounds like we were similar growing up! I made friends with junk yard dogs and chained watchdogs. I remember one time, I was going to approach a chained dog I'd made friends with, when a shop worker came up and said, "Don't go near him, he'll take your hand off!" ... I just blinked at him, then went over and loved on the dog... who stared at the worker, growled at him, then went back to enjoying my attention lol. I was really arrogant about making friends with dogs when I was a kid... I don't know HOW I didn't get eaten! O.o

    Zoey is my dog's name, I am Joey :p but sure, I am just not fond of their facial appearance at all and they seem far to high sprung in your face types, along with, stubborn attitudes. Those traits may not be apart of all boxers? but all that I have encountered or viewed, showed them. Apart from the facial appearance, they all have that in which, just does not lighten up my taste buds sorry ;)

    O my, I think their facial expressions are adorable! I just want to cuddle them.

    They're definitely not pet people - my mom likes an orderly existence. My dad also got attacked by a German Shepherd as a child and isn't really comfortable around dogs. Of course I asked! I was allowed hamsters and guinea pigs. But I'll never be without a dog now :D

    ANY dog could win me over on personality, but these are some potential dog duds for me...

    GSD (too much hair, unstable temperaments IME)
    Shit Zus (I couldn't own a dog that I couldn't spell the name)
    American Eskimos ( too hairy, not fond of Spitz breeds)
    Husky (same reason as above..)
    Chow (been there, done that....WAY too much hair, omg)
    Cocker Spaniel (too stupid and wiggly)
    Weiner dog (too long with short legs)
    Any dog with a hairy mouth like Schnauzers (just gross)
    Pekinese (doesn't do it for me, plus one bit me)

    Actually theres many more, I'll also never own another Miniature Pinscher even though I have three now. They bark too friggin much. I'll also never own another Bullmastiff, even though I own one now and he's a doll. The drool is BAD, and he's not the most portable dog....you need a ramp to put him in the truck, and taking him anywhere is difficult.

    Never say never though ;)

    lol I used to have a pom. he was spoiled and had a bad attitude. snapped at me a few times. also there was dog fur everywhere even in the fridge. All in all I enjoyed my pomeranian and he lived to a ripe old age but I would never have another one.

    I don't prefer small breeds. Chi's, Dachshunds, Cocker Spanials, ect. They just aren't my thing.

    I not scared of any breed. Despite being bit (pretty bad, with some torn ligaments in my arm) by our Shiba when I was about 13. It was my own fault, I put my arm in front of her as she was trying to eat my neighbors small dog. Lol

    There are certain breeds I wouldn't own, even if I like the way they look.
    Shiba Inu
    Anything else with a double coat that sheds A LOT. I can barely handle to amount my moms boxer sheds.

    Then there are dogs that might have awesome personalities but I would never own because I REALLY dislike the way they look. Not to say if I came across a rescue I would say no because it's ugly!
    Bull Terriers (I'm sure I'll get a lot of shit for this!! You guys can call my dog ugly if you want!! Lol) I've just never liked the way they look
    The Chinese crested things that are so expensive.
    I'm sure there are more, just can't think of them off the top of my head.

    It's good to know I'm not alone.:lol:

    I also dislike those hairless Chinese Cresteds (Chinese Food dogs). Too fragile for my taste, and touching them makes me want to throw up (like when I've touched a hairless cat or rat, the feel of them just grosses me out and I have to run away to wash my hands and dry heave).

    There isn't a breed that I can say I don't like. Every breed has some purpose (even those that don't seem to have a purpose). But there are some general classifications of dogs that I always said I would not want to live with.... But as has already been said "Never say never".

    I love all of the herding breeds (especially collies) but, I have always said I would not want to live with a Border Collie. The intensity of the breed is just more than I would want to live with. BUT, as always happens, I now have a rottweiler from working lines that is every bit as intense as any border collie I have ever seen. I have learned to deal with it, and even gotten used to having a dog laying somewhere in the house watching every move I make. God forbid you actually make eye contact! LOL

    I was never a big fan of "Rats on a rope" (Toy breeds) in the past, but have had the opportunity to get to know a number of small breeds who's owners actually treat them like dogs instead of toys or children. They can actually have awesome personalities if given the chance. I've even started appreciating the compactness of these little dynamos!

    So overall, there really aren't any breeds I don't like. More accurately I would say there are some dogs I don't like, but these are individuals not the breed as a whole. (Or maybe it's the dog's owners I dislike...hmmmmm)

    Haha, a few of mine definately qualify as "rats on a rope"...especially one in particular. I definately agree that the owner has a huge responsibility here to treat toy dogs just as what they are....dogs. I HATE seeing little dogs carted around in bags, in strollers and as some sort of accessory. They have legs for a reason.

    Yup, the owners potentially wreck toy dogs for sure...it's not the dogs fault.

    Rat dog in question...

    I use to feel the same way about boxers but recently I have grown to "like" them. I'd never own one but I kind of like their silly, floppy, rambunciousness

    I base my opinion first on the individual owner then the individual dog! If there is an idiot on the end of the leash I steer clear and avoid them like the plague! lol

    They can be such huge drama queens! :lol: Lily sometimes cries like a big baby while I'm doing her toenails.... but there has to be a witness to her drama besides me or she doesn't do it. 'Cause I'm so abusive making sure her nails are trimmed regularly. :rolleyes: And then she has spastic husky zoomies of joy around the house when I'm done because she's happy her nails are trimmed. F'ing weirdo dog. :lol:
    I really wish more people would abstain from getting them as pets. They need jobs. :no2:

    And one of my biggest pet peeves in any breed are owners who do ZERO work to get a dog used to basic life tasks like brushing and nail clipping. I just don't get it. Its not that hard to take the extra time to do it right.

    I actually had to get Scout groomed when I took her in because her coat was in such horrid shape. She did awesome at the groomer surprisingly. It was harder acclimating her to being brushed and nail clipped at home. She still doesn't enjoy it, but she trusts me and lets me do it willingly. Its super awkward trying to pull a long curly tail covered in 6" long wooly hair out from under her butt when she's wigged out though. I swear that damn tail grows when I brush it.

    I found that over time and with tons of exposure to great dogs, my list has shrunk considerably. I have breeds I'm not crazy about, but none that I really dislike.
