I don't like any animal that is not properly trained at all.. not properly taken care of... and i'm not talking about babying it like an insane number of assholes appear to be doing... letting them run around and bark like spoiled brats.... It's not difficult in the least to bring up a dog properly .... not much more difficult than a child in terms of teaching it the basics.... if you can't do that yourself.. you don't deserve to force a dog to have a shitty existence... and sadly, once they've grown up a bit with that shitty existence, they typically cannot be "retaught" properly... forever living out their spoiled bratty ways. Take for example a dog that from birth, was always a lap dog.... but once it started getting bigger.. lets say for example a case i know right now... a german sheppard... not a lap dog..... after being in a lap for about a year..... the owner no longer can handle the dog on it's lap.. but because the bugger was brought up that way... it's near impossible to stop it from trying.... and some dogs.... regardless of the retraining done.. it'll never think it doesn't belong there... so as the aggressive trainer climbs... the more aggressive this dog gets trying to remain on the lap.... the result of which is a large dog basically jumping up onto everyone it meets and pinning them down due to it's sheer size and weight, and after being disaplined in many ways.... only getting more violent and aggressive to the point of biting people if it cannot be in anyone's lap. A dog that cannot be trained and is like that.... ends up being killed... The fact that so many idiots are "breeding dogs" without a fucking clue in their heads how to do it properly... and what's worse.. the crazy number of people that don't understand the amount of work involved and CLEAR and PRECISE requirements to make sure a dog behaves properly... is astounding.... they shouldn't be allowed to own a dog if it cannot abide by simple rules. I know dog owners that can't even get their dog to shit and piss outside.... just letting it do it's business in the house.... How incredibly insane is this? These same people are amazed when i tell our family dog to sit... stay.... it comes to us when it needs outside to take a shit or piss..... it pretty much never barks because we've trained it not to unless there is a very valid reason or unless it's clearly playing, so there are never mornings when we are awoken for no good reason... And if we were to put it into a foreign situation, it wouldn't take it long to learn of the new scheduled events that occur, though i would still be extremely surprised if it barked for a random reason. And considering the plethora of people i've met with dogs..... the ones that own the small ones almost exclusively do it because they think it's "cute" and some think it's "cheaper".... and easier to handle.... and yet again they don't train them.... yappy annoying little bastards that would be better suited being stuffed and temporarily used as a football before being disgarded..... that is .... dead or alive at the time.... useless annoying bastards that thye are.
