Why couldn't you just post this in the unpopular opinion thread? I don't like dogs either(I actually prefer cats) but it doesn't really need its own thread. It'll just turn into people screeching about why x animal sucks more and won't really go anywhere. It's already started.

I hate pitbull spergs who think pitbulls are oppressed akin to a human. Every single time a story comes out of a disgusting pitbull mauling someone they come too cape and reeeee without fail. "ITS JUST THE UPBRINGING!!!!" "MINE IS THE KINDEST MOST COMPASSIONATE SOUL HERES AN IRRESPONSIBLE STAGED PHOTO OF MY PIT AND MY BABY!"

Yessssss! Dogs are annoying as SHIT, always barking for the littlist things, attacking people, and shitting/pissy ANYWHERE and everywhere. The fact people always paint them as angels and cats as demons is just… astounding at times. Normally, for cats to be voracius someone has to keep messing with them and again, there are some evil ass cats but i could problably find 100 evil dogs for every 1 evil cat.

Pitbulls are disgusting and vicious and i wish they would be bred out of existence. people try really hard to defend them, but there is so much hard evidence about how scary pitbull attacks are and how they are nearly impossible to get off once they bite you because of their pain tolerance. You basically have to kill them.


Also, i have seen them snap for no reason. The glorification of pitbulls is disgusting.

Dogs can be okay if their owner trains them properly, makes sure they are entertained, etc. Neglected, bored, and poorly disciplined dogs will bark, bite, and destroy property. Like us if they both have nothing to do and are socially isolated they will become stressed out and aggressive. Unfortunately a lot of owners believe that their dog is happy sitting at home and staring into a void for the entire day.

I have a weird beef towards smaller dogs, particularly ones that deviate immensely from wolf-like physiology.
Small dogs move so jittery and so closely underfoot to the point–it gets irritating because I'm scared I'll step on them and crunch all their tiny bones or something. Then many smaller dogs are bred for neoteny to the point they either appear to be stuffed animals or substitutes for human babies. They're deep in the uncanny valley and look so pitiful. Sometimes I genuinely get disgusted looking at dogs that look like a wig come to life, like someone took a coyote/wolf/husky and crushed it with their hands into some blob of flesh and hair. All the meanwhile, the dog knows it's not supposed to be like that.
I'm definitely humanizing them, but man, it freaks me out.

Also I hate dumbshits who popularize highly recessive traits like merle English Bulldogs (which go for like 20K USD) thereby encouraging in-breeding and genetic diseases, even with "legit pedigree" breeders. Like, people don't just want some pedigree dog; they also want ultra rare shiny pedigree dogs for status symbols.

Dogs in infantilizing outfits and haircuts also spook me.

yessssssssssssss, anon, yes.

they're honestly the most pathetic bootlickers and the worst meme. dogs are entirely a meme. they're two-faced and have no spine.

people don't like these qualities in humans, even if they're dumb – why like them in animals? i truly think there's something wrong with people that value animals being easily manipulated and shamed/trained into submission. there's something very wrong with dog people in that regard. if you highly value being able to control and manipulate other creatures and your love for them is based almost entirely around that fact, you're fucked in the head.

dogs can be ok, like, kind of cute, but they're potential death machines, even the smaller ones can cause quite a bit of damage. there are 0 deaths on record from cats and cats can only inflict minimal damage on a human, on top of the fact that dogs are WAY more likely to snap. cats generally give you warning. i don't get society's dog love. they're smelly and slobbery, eat shit, eat vomit, etc. i get that they're animals, but there are so many better animals in the world.

btw, dogs have been studied and prefer treats to affection from humans, where cats preferred human affection over treats.

and dogs infect people with deadly saliva bacterium, too. besides, cat scratch fever is entirely different from behavioral problems and fatalities from cat scratch fever are fairly unlikely. those that are immunodeficient can have issues with both dogs and cats, but the fact remains that cats don't maul humans and leave them without a face or kill them.

cats and crib death is a ridiculous comparison. the cats aren't trying to kill infants, the very very few cases documented show that they just fell asleep on them. that's not the same thing as a dog mauling your child or grandmother, wtf?

choosing to leave your infant with any animal is retarded. don't blame that shit on cats. as long as you don't let them sleep in your child's room, that shouldn't be a problem, whereas you can't separate your dog from your kid all of the fucking time.

My grandpa loved pitbulls, we had three of them at our property and I hated it because they always scared me. I didn't trust them, something in their eyes screamed violence to me. Then one day the biggest one we had got loose and guess what? He jumped at my dog's throat. Thankfully my dog had layers of fur on his neck that prevented the beast of killing him. I remember my father had to use a metal bar to hit the pitbull since he just wouldn't release my dog, my dad almost killed it. This memory always reminds me of why I hate this dog breed so much, they can just die for all I care.

the only reason i would get a dog is because i plan on living alone and a lot of the bigger breeds are good for protection. most likely a german shepard or a doberman.

my whole life my mom has always had small little inbred dogs and i can't stand them. they get super greasy and janky looking within a few days after bathing them and they constantly bark. doesn't help that my mom only wanted them just to have them and barely put in effort to take care of them, so i was always left with the baggage, which i did take care of. definitely never want to own a small dog ever again.

there used to be a dog in my town when i was a kid (like 8-12 i think) and the owners lived right next to a kids play park. i don't know what breed it was or anything but it was pretty big and it was so vicious that the park was constantly empty even though it was always busy before and after the dog was there. the park was about halfway between my house and my school but when me or people who lived nearby walked home it took an extra 10 minutes because we had to take a much longer route because they let the dog out as early as 2pm for it to run about all night. some stories about this dog:
>it once chased me and a friend in the street and we had to wait in an indian takeaway while it growled at us through the door. the takeaway owner said it happened all the time and told us to wait until it chased someone else
>one of the scariest times was when i saw a mum screaming and running away with a toddler while the dog chased her. the thing was literally snapping at this 3 year olds head and the mother had to grab him and try to kick the dog away
>it frequently chased groups of children so they had to climb the ladders of a slide and wait at the top while it snarled at them
i don't know if the owners moved or if the dog died or was eventually put down but it was so vicious it pretty much scared me off dogs for life after loving them before. too many people here let their dogs jump up on you and say things like "he doesn't bite!" so i definitely get nervous when i see them now. obviously not all dogs are like that but some snap really easily and i don't want one to suddenly go crazy on me

oh, and i used to have a friend who had a couple of labradors and who always had parties. i always deliberately went to the parties late because he'd let them into the room with everyone and every single time the dogs would get too excited and piss all over the room and he never put them somewhere else until they already had

honestly, i'd go so far as to say that with how irresponsible dog owners are, like, 90% of them don't give a shit at all about their dogs. i see so many of them violating leash laws, letting their dogs run around in their yard and dig holes, etc.

i know so many dogs that have escaped and attacked other dogs and humans and did have to be put down for it.

like, being lazy is one thing, but your dog will be killed if it hurts anyone. and it's a lot of them that actually do this kind of shit. this fake dog love i hear all damn day long from 'dog lovers' is disgusting. they'll sit there and act like their dogs are their lives while being irresponsible with them around children, other animals, etc.

seriously, my mom only liked her little dogs just to say she had them and to love on them every once in a while. besides that she took no responsibility for them and i seriously felt bad, because you could tell they wanted attention and needed to be trained. they'd just shit and pee everywhere and bark constantly.

i think that's why i have such disdain for small dogs, because i know when people get small dogs they're more inclined not to train them or take care of them, they're just cute little toys. not saying that everyone who gets big dogs are any better, just i know that it's more likely with small dogs to have shit owners, they think having a small dog means no maintenance at all.

Or the dog owners who let their dogs off the lead 24/7 and let them run at, bark at, jump on strangers. Or attack other's dogs.

Most people are retards and can't look after themselves, their children and certainly not a pet. Most pets live 6 years max in the average home. Dogs are descended from wolves (or wild dogs and foxes as my theory, for some of the smaller breeds that resemble different breeds of wild dog and fox)

The screaming and biting while doing something as innocuous as merely touching their foot, the relentless cycle of shitting for the dryer, having to rebathe them, then they shit again, scratching and clawing, holy fuck. I was literally losing my sanity and will to live while I did that job. It was great money. But it was the most stress I've ever encountered. I dreaded going to work every day to have my schedule packed full of dogs I'm expected to do in less than an hour when they take an hour to dry alone because they're such fucking assholes killed my soul. Groomers would quit all the time, just walk out, because they couldn't handle the stress - which left the remaining groomers picking up their schedule in addition to their own. After 5 miserable years, I walked out too. I didn't even care anymore that it fucked over my coworkers. I was on the verge of a mental breakdown.

Logically I know that in most cases it's the shitty owners' faults (and yes, they were hell to deal with too, because god forbid you ever tell them their precious baby was less than angel, or they get angry you couldn't finish shaving them because they were attacking your hands) but when you're stuck in a hot, clammy back room full of screaming biting dogs you lose sight of the logic.

It's a shame, because on the occasions I got an actual well behaved dog, I really enjoyed my work. I had ton of repeat clients who specifically asked for me, it was the only job where I legitimately felt I was not just good at it, I was great at it. But 90% of the dogs were horrific to deal with. Absolute monsters. And way too far gone to retrain - not that their psychotic owners would bother. Even the dogs who had to be sedated (which was a lot of the clientele) would still bite and lunge.

The job made me hate dogs. I will never own a dog again, even though I know I could train it to behave perfectly because I'm slightly less braindead than the average owner, but all I can think about when I see a cute dog on the street is how shitty it probably is for a groom.

I generally dislike dogs because I hate the sound of barking and I've had bad experiences with dogs attacking me when I was a child, but it's more discomfort and fear than hatred. What I hate are shitty dog owners who can't keep their huge beast that doesn't listen on a leash and then go "Oh, he just wants to play :))" when it runs at you. When you're scared of dogs it's genuinely hard to go to the park on nice days because even though dogs are supposed to be leashed there, they think it doesn't apply to their sweet, sweet pup.

Also the ones who just rush in to shit-talk cats with all the same tired arguments whenever someone even insinuates that dogs aren't perfect angels.

Huskies are very energetic dogs, they were literally bred to pull weight for long distances. That shit gives their life purpose. Owners like that need to choose a different breed if they can't adjust their lifestyle to keep up with a dog's physical demands. In this case it's exercise.

This thread gives me some reassurance.

I've been terrified of dogs all my life. Now that I'm 31, I simply avoid them and dislike them. But if one comes near me, I will inch away from it. The fear was really bad when I was growing up, though.
I don't like their loudness, their sounds, their smell, and I don't think they're cute. Basically all things that also apply to how I feel about babies/children. Also the idea of being licked has always disgusted/horrified me, and still does to this day.

I'm very used to having unpopular dislikes, but I'm glad I'm not completely alone.

In this video owners of dangerous dogs whine about the "offensive" things people say to them, like e.g. asking whether their dogs bite.

I noticed an interesting pattern in the comments:
>They're so cute!!!
>My pitbull is so sweet, he's actually afraid of [insert something]
>Actually, chihuahuas are the most aggressive dogs
and of course the all time favourite:
>It's the owners fault!!!
1000s of likes
>I don't hate dogs, but I'm scared because I was bitten as a child. It's a phobia, one can't help it.
>In my street a little kid was nearly killed by one. Asking whether it's dangerous is only being cautious.

There once was a discussion in the unpopular opinion thread there an anon also defended dogs by saying that right now she's cuddling with hers in bed, because he's scared of thunder. Every living being has one weakness. Ted Bundy probably was also scared of at least one thing. But that doesn't make them any less dangerous.
And saying chihuahuas or dachshunds bite more often… even a little child could defend themselves by simply stepping on them. There are so many videos out there of pitbulls and co literally ripping adult men apart, despite others hitting them. Their instinct to kill is so strong that they don't give a fuck how much they're getting hurt, so don't tell me they're actually "nannies". Most other animals and even humans with their bare hands wouldn't be able to do so much physical damage.

>I have a bull breed and he is scared of frogs,toads, butterflies, caterpillars……and he sits in your lap when he wants attention.

>looks over at pit bull that I'm babysitting who has his belly up and tongue out Yup, super dangerous.

>My pit bull is the sweetest animal alive. He thinks he's a little Pomeranian and sits on your lap, smiling up at you like you're his whole world. He has never been aggressive towards anyone, and frankly, the only reason I could picture someone not liking him would be because he gives "too many" kisses (there's no such thing as too many kisses)!

>My dog is a beagle pit bull mix and he bites people, he runs as fast as a cheetah and he’s really hyper and EVERYONE that meets him gets really scared of him but he’s sooo cute! He’s also a big dog but he’s only 2 years old 😂!
>As an owner of an all black 120 pound pitbull who is the sweetest thing on the planet, I can say that I won't speak to you again if you tell me any of these. Plus my so called "dangerous animal" is scared of most things. She once hid behind me bc she saw a cat. She barks at her shadow. She's scared of my two bunnies. She's probably the opposite of a guard dog. Honestly if there was a break in at my home, she'd most likely want to play with the burglar. Does that sound like a vicious dog to you?

a lot of dogs have very oily or greasy coats. if you pet somwthing like a poodle your hands won't feel unclean (unless they are filthy) but dogs like labradors have nasty coats 24/7, even if they were bathed recently. and honestly dogs just fucking smell.

my ex's mom had a nasty Yorkie that she let sleep with her (!!!) who was a greasy monster. smelled awful, felt like petting a person with thin hair that hasn't been washed in months. he smelled so fucking bad I could not believe that she allowed him to sleep with her. his smell alone nauseated me and I actually like dogs.

i used to be one of those people who hated cats because growing up my parents demonized them and my close friend had these horribly unsocialized cats that would hide. then I wound up rescuing a cat from a hoarding situation and they are the pet for me 100%. my cat is so cuddly, sleeps with me every night, sits in my lap when I work from home, greets me at the door when I come home…anyone who says cats are aloof and unaffectionate have never owned a cat.

Ugh. I think huskies are such beautiful dogs but every time I see one I get sad because I'm almost certain the owner doesn't give them the proper care. I saw a guy walking down the street with a shaved husky and it pissed me off. Everybody wants a husky to look cute for their social media photos but never want to put in any actual work to give the animal a decent life.

A girl I know was gushing to me about how cool huskies are and how much she wants one. Meanwhile, she whines about having to walk her family's dog, who is a little lapdog that weighs like 20 pounds. She gives that poor dog five minute walks because she's too fat and lazy. And it's not even like he's a big or energetic breed… I fucking hate lazy people who get dogs.

I never used to actually hate a dog until I moved back in with my mom and her untrained terrors. They jump and hump and bite your ankle whenever you come through the door and she just laughs. I can't walk in the house wearing shorts or sandals without getting my legs sliced up. They're hell to walk too as they only listen to her, and barely. Any training I attempt to do with them is pointless since they have a schedule of receiving treats just for existing.
We also have the pleasure of watching these geriatric twin mini poodles with obvious littermate syndrome. They're mean little dogs owned by her retired friends with too much money. I've been at their house and watched them feed these dogs straight up chocolate icecream "because they like it." Lots of time spent as a preteen on my part hand feeding those spoiled brats.
I like the cat though, but he does have a tendency to fart in your face and pukes pretty consistently now that he's older. Looking forward to living alone without any shit machines.

I also hate people's attitudes toward dogs like they are public property. Combined with acting like they are angels and can do no wrong; their brain just shuts off. All those accounts of people distracting service dogs comes to mind. I'll be out walking them and kids will just come up to pet them without asking, when 1 has multiple events of biting and drawing blood. He bit a kid for having skateboard and not listening when she said don't pet him he hates skateboards. Then he went and whined to his mom who got up in her face about her kid being stupid. Just recently a guy had his toddler out on the sidewalk so she could pet them (without awknowledging me at all) and then tailed me up the street when I didn't stop. Incredibly obnoxious.

There should be a $350 dog license class that you MUST take to be eligible to adopt.

$600 to buy purebreds
$1000 to deal with any "guard dog" breed, especially if intended to use one as such.

Live down the street from a pair of Dobermans, one of which barks constantly at anyone walking buy. Their fence is not large enough to contain it. Same thing in my previous neighborhood with a German Shepard. If your dog barks, charges, and follows someone walking on the sidewalk "within their yard" you should be fucking charged or have to produce a license that the dogs are trained enough never to jump the fence.

Parrots, especially the "incredibly intelligent" (??) kind, are high maintenance, fucking loud, messy, needy and will probably outlive you. They also have the capability to hurt you or your children.

Ferrets are also high maintenance and fucking stink. They are basically small, slithery dogs/cats and will bite. If you knew anything about them, you wouldn't compare them.

Yes, dogs have the capability to do damage, but so do other animals. Animals are in general, unstable, unpredictable and a risk. And also extremely varied.

this was such a terrible, terrible refutation of the original post.

> kind, are high maintenance, fucking loud, messy, needy and will probably outlive you. They also have the capability to hurt you or your children.

outliving me isn't a downside. and why are you putting question marks as if parrots haven't been shown to be intelligent, and more intelligent than dogs? and because dogs aren't high maintenance or loud? half of the posts in this thread are complaints about dogs barking constantly. you have to pick up their warm shit with your hands every day 3+ times a day, have to walk them, exercise them (outside of the house if you aren't a shit owner), and are incredibly needy. or messy? they eat and roll around in shit and vomit and have no ability to control themselves. they will eat until they vomit. so dogs aren't capable of hurting children? the majority of dog bites are literally inflicted upon children and you're very likely to be bitten by your dog at some point in its lifetime. and most dog attacks are by family member's or friend's pets. nice.


>Ferrets are also high maintenance and fucking stink. They are basically small, slithery dogs/cats and will bite. If you knew anything about them, you wouldn't compare them.

what the fuck kind of rebuttal is this? no one was even talking about how high maintenance the animal is. the original post was about risk of injury. any animal can bite you, retard, that's obvious, but you can more easily kick off a low to the ground ferret with smaller jaws than even a small dog. i'd much rather have a musky ferret than a smelly ass dog that's needy, rolls around in shit, and is a public nuisance. at least ferrets aren't at risk for escaping and brutally attacking your neighbor's child or your neighbor's dog or cat and needing to be put down.

>Yes, dogs have the capability to do damage, but so do other animals. Animals are in general, unstable, unpredictable and a risk. And also extremely varied. Are you going to claim a pomeranian has "incredible tearing and biting capability"? Are you going to claim that a rowdy white cockatoo isn't unpredictable?

relative to their size, yes, their tearing capability is still very impressive considering their size, and they can still do considerable damage if they want to. small dogs and puppies can still maul babies to death pretty easily, and has literally been the case with pomeranians before. google it.

all animals are unpredictable, because they're animals, obviously, but dogs snap and often don't give as many warning signs as many other animals, and they don't stop attacking when they attack. the key is to mitigate and prevent damage. parrots and cats don't attack people in the same way dogs do, and dog bites, and severe dog bites, are incredibly common. even if not trying to prevent harm to yourself or family members, all of these animals are STILL less likely to escape and attack and kill other animals. if you're going to run the risk of having an animal, it makes sense to not have a dog over other animals, imo. the personality profile of dogs suck, too, in comparison to all of these other animals, imo.

Idk if anybody else feels the same but I either hate or love dogs.
Either they're a complete shit stain of a dog or they're the cutest purest little ball of floof (ignoring the high maintenance fact).
I absolutely despise untrained dogs.

When I was younger I absolutely hated dogs. I lived in a tiny village and often that means that all of your neighbours have dogs like they're guarding a fucking treasure mansion when the crime was abysmally low. So basically you couldn't walk a few feet without having a barking idiot dog spot you from ACROSS the street. Or dogs that managed to climb up their fence and decide that you're in their territory cause the street is theirs.

I don't really blame the dogs, more often than not people jump in and get a breed they never researched prior. My relatives first got an english bulldog, an adorable, although smelly, bastard. After he passed away (cause yeah, those dogs come with a shit ton of health problems) they decided to get a Basset Hound. Look at this lil cutie with his funny droopy look ! He's probably very gentle and quiet and shuffle along right ? Except it's a hunting dog and he'll need a ton of exercise and training, otherwise he'll think of himself as the master of the house. So basically that stupid dog not only smelled like hell (cause those ears just drag along and pick up whatever shit they find) but was just terrible and violent towards guests.

At least when someone has a terrible cat I can punt that shit across the room, or keep it away with a broom. Try doing that with a dog that's almost your weight.

because there are fewer benefits and more risk to having a dog. i just said that. as i said, cats attack differently than dogs. once a dog starts straight up attacking you, they're unlikely to back down, stop, and let go. cats don't attack like that, for example, which means that coupled with their waaay less muscle and muscle fibers that are meant specifically more for speed/running/agility, rather than brute force/strength, than even the smallest of dogs, even their worst attack will generally not be that bad, let alone compared to a medium sized or large dog. i don't know why you refuse to grasp this.

>dogs dont fuck with you unless you fuck with them first, pitbulls aside.

are you serious? dogs are incredibly territorial, and as i said, will escape and attack other animals. cats and parrots are not similarly territorial. have you not seen the many, many videos of dogs just snapping and attacking people because of loud noises or sudden movements? it doesn't make them enormous assholes, it just makes them powerful animals that are serious liabilities that people are refusing to consider as liabilities when they definitely are ones.

>if you hadn't brought up cats in the other post, this excuse would be a lot less shitty. if you wanna talk about level of damage, invasive cats have wiped out populations of wildflife. name me a dog breed that's done this

sad that you needed to reach this much when i was explicitly talking about the risk they pose to other domestic animals whose lives are valued by their families/owners, and, more importantly, children. they're put down all of the time because they attack children. why aren't you willing to acknowledge this? this does not happen to cats because cats don't typically escape their homes, lose their shit, and start attacking people.

but since you asked:

>Oxford researchers Joelene Hughes and David W. Macdonald reviewed 69 studies on canine-wildlife relations in rural areas. All but three of these articles found that dogs had a negative impact, mostly due to predation.


>Free-roaming dogs can especially cause harm on islands, where ecosystems tend to be vulnerable in the face of non-native predators like dogs. For instance, in the late 1980s, researchers found that a single German shepherd on the loose in New Zealand's Waitangi State Forest was responsible for killing up to 500 kiwis. The dog had a collar, but was unregistered, and its owner was not found.


>In another example from 2006, 12 ownerless dogs were thought to be wiping out populations of the endangered Fijian ground frog on Viwa Island.

regardless, this wasn't even important. the topic at hand was the liability towards children and pets.

please enjoy this video of a neighbor's dog that most people would visually peg as aggressive or threatening, just a medium sized mutt (read it was a lab mix?), escaping their house and randomly attacking and dragging a child on a tricycle, who is then saved by his cat. but "dogs don't attack unless provoked", sure, that's why these things happen all of the time.

how are dogs not equally messy, loud or needy? I don't have to walk my senegal every day nor does he ever reach the volume a dog does on the occasions he decides to be noisy. any mess he makes can be vacuumed with ease, and he wears a flight harness outside of his cage to contain poops. larger parrots are obviously more capable of damage and noise, but again, it's very easy to contain their mess and avoid household destruction. their noise is on par with a dog who barks all day. as for biting, birds can vote, and a large cockatoo could give you stitches, but biting to the point of serious damage is incredibly rare (and reserved for birds like cockatoos).

ferrets are shit pets tho I agree with you there.

>small dogs don't have incredible ripping and tearing capacities

you are truly uneducated about dogs if you believe this. a Pomeranian can fuck you up. any small terrier was bred specifically to tear prey to shreds. will a pitbull be capable of doing more damage and be a lot harder to fend off? of course, but small dogs still have centuries of breeding behind them and still have a mouth full of sharp teeth specifically to rip and tear flesh. I work with dogs for a living and have been bit a few times. the only one I was hospitalized for with stitches was a shitty chihuahua/Jack Russel mix. when it comes to "can this dog do serious damage to me" the answer is yes, for every single breed of dog, regardless of size. small dogs tend to have a worse attitude and training due to shitty owners who spoil them and don't treat them like dogs because they're small.

i never said dogs aren't capable of being messy. they're also capable of being not messy. i've owned dogs and birds. the birds were a bigger pain in the ass to clean after than my two dogs.

i also never said small dogs can't do damage. ive also seen enough small dogs who can't rip and tear things to shit because their jaws don't have the power to do so. so no, from my own experience, not every dog can do serious damage.

They didn't, they immediately got him euthanized without telling anyone. He was a really cute dog despite all the health shit and his behavior wasn't awful… I'm sure someone would've taken him if they did try. They could've even pawned him off on our other family members.

Also meant to add to that post that they kept him in a tiny cage virtually all the time, even when they were at home with him. Only let him out of it for walks and food. Probably a major reason why he was fat and depressed.

A woman just moved out of my building. She was the proud owner of eight (8) little, very yappy dogs. They lived together in a 900sqft apartment. In NYC. With no yard and very little green space for the dogs to actually move around.

They were horribly trained. I couldn't leave my apartment while they were in the lobby, lest they yap and block the doorway. If she was going inside the building while I was intending to, I had to wait five minutes for her to stop her dumbass dogs from getting distracted and yapping at some stimulus outside so they could be herded back in (and if something happened inside, they would start yapping again and refuse to go up the stairs). The smell of dog would linger in the lobby for a half hour after she took them for a walk, and occasionally one would leave a 'present' for the rest of the neighbors to find.

Dog Lady was a very strange woman who seldom talked to anybody else, but when she did, it was in the same 'mommyese' way that she would talk to her dogs. I'm pretty sure she didn't have a job and have no idea how she afforded to live where she did in addition to the astronomical monthly pet fee she must have paid for eight little yappy dogs and the cost of taking care of eight little yappy dogs. If only she'd used some of that money to train them.

From what i read, its not that common. But yes, you're right, any feces shouldn't be near the mother or baby at all, standard stuff. When I read an article, it said dogs can carry most of the same parasites as cats, besides toxoplasmosis. But for a cat to contract it, its quite unlikely if they're indoor only and have had their shots, and are not fed raw food, birds, rats, etc. Ive seen dogs eat random things off the ground when they go outside, and makes them more susceptible to fleas which if ingested, causes worm parasites.

Is it just me, or has there been a rise on muh service dogs in the last few years? I never saw this shit growing up, but I swear, it's common now. The people who usually have them don't even train them to do service work half the time anyway.

Anyway, I don't outright hate dogs, but I will say I've soured to them and their dumbass owners the older I've gotten. As a kid, I loved dogs, especially big ones because I'd run around outside a lot and play with them. But years of being around several little dogs constantly shitting and barking while I was a teen, combined with now living in a still sort of rural area where dumbasses will let their dogs roam sometimes, has soured me as an adult. I've seen dogs kill animals in my yard, and I've had to run them off. I've had dogs run up to me while I was walking, and while they didn't harm me, it was still a fucking risk. I wanna exercise in peace. And to top it all off, I was bitten by a dog owned by one of my dumbass irresponsible relatives. I only needed a few stitches, thank god, but I can remember calling them to tell them what happened. And she sounded more concerned about the dog than me.

I can't fucking stand people who just let their dogs roam. There's fields out here farmers work in, and dogs from other houses will roam all the way across those, and wind up in my yard sometimes. I had one literally on my porch, nose pressed to my door once. I'm of the opinion that roaming dogs should be shot and killed, but god knows what would happen if you did something like that.

>Nope, it’s normal. Lets be honest human babies aren’t very cute when compared to other animals.


>Absolutely not. Sure, some people like babies. Some people LOVE babies. But almost everyone loves dogs, and especially puppies. Not liking animals is generally a sign of being a bad person. Not liking babies, on the other hand, is more a sign that you don’t enjoy screaming, crying, puking, and stinking diapers. Human babies are incredibly hard to take care of, and it takes them years to grow up enough before they aren’t keeping you up all night and making a mess of everything. For a puppy, it takes them about a month or less to grow out of that phase, if properly trained. They’re cuddly, snuggly, furry babies who don’t keep you up all night crying.. usually. And if they do, it’s resolved far more quickly. They are much, much easier to love than a human baby.


>No, I am the exact same way. It’s not that I like both dogs and humans a lot, but dogs have a slight edge — no. I love dogs and I royally dislike humans. Well, maybe it’s more that I dislike humans that have been tainted by society. Humans have the capacity to be likeable, just that there are so many unlikable humans out there that are skewing my perception giving me a misanthropic bias. Bottom line: if I had to choose between saving a puppy or a baby from a burning building, I would go for the puppy first. Then I would take that puppy from the owners, because they are assholes who left it to burn in a house fire. May some awful plague befall mankind. To which I am immune.


>Nope, you are exceptionally sane. If people were honest, human babies are ugly as hell. Of course you love your own baby despite that, but to love other people’s ugly babies is insane.


>No. I would say your quite sane. I have children that are grown and I love them very much. I love my dog just as much if not more because he doesn't have a rude smart mouth.

>Practical matters: A doggie forces you to get out and take walks–healthy. If you're single, a doggie is a date magnet. It can provide security—most dogs bark when someone comes near your home. And on a personal note, my doggie Einstein is my receptionist, welcoming clients with a wag and a kiss—something no human receptionist would do. And he's my co-counselor: If a client likes, Einstein will sit next to him on the sofa. The client often pets the dog during the session–a great stress buster. Years after a client has finished working with me, I've often received a note that includes a line such as, "How's Einstein? Give him a hug for me."
>Even if you generally prefer people over dogs, for most of us, the benefits of having a doggie in the family far outweigh the liabilities.

But "dog haters" are the ones lacking empathy… No other species would prefer a different one over their own young ones.
I personally don't want children, but genuinely thinking that the life of an animal is worth more than the one of a human, child or adult, is absolutely shit. Go on, call yourself hooman, you seem to have lost any sense of humanity anyways.

(keeping in the last part about not treating them well, because dogs DO still kiss ass even if verbally abused, hit, and will remain loyal to their abusers. cats and most other animals will say 'go fuck yourself' as much as possible.)

would people not think this person is an abusive narc? yes. but apply that shit to dogs and it's totally reasonable!

i feel bad for domestic dogs. they don't have enough mental fortitude to be their own people and rely on humans for direction. i think it's inherently a shit situation and i don't see much to idealize in it. it's just kind of sad. like seeing a woman in a relationship that is emotionally abused but her bf treats her kind of well otherwise, so she'll never see it

I think the only reasonable excuse for actually liking dogs aside from "they so cute uwu" is that they're relatively smart, which can be endearing, and will do tricks/play fetch/entertain you a bit. Aside from that, dog owners are pretty fucking creepy with their desire for something so absolutely dependent on them. It's also fucking annoying how dog owners reach for miles as soon as you mention you don't like dogs for reasons that you should like dogs or that you're a shitty person for not liking dogs.

I don't hate dog. My biggest problem are the extreme owners. I can't say how much I hate that so many people have a dog so it can be their baby. Nothing is wrong if you tell your animal that you love it and say it is your 'fluffball' or somehting. The problem starts with when you see yourself as parent and your dog as child. (Have seen that on many animals but dog owners are the most extreme ones).
I like dogs more than children but a dog is not your child. You are not a parent. I can't help but get so annoyed if people tell me about it and say something like: "..and she looked at me with these "but mum i want to" eyes.

Dogs aren't horrible but the adulation they get is annoying especially when it is so damn near universal. A large portion of the little dislike I do have is targeted at how publicly tolerated dogs have become which is so unfair to anyone that has allergies or phobias not to mention the mess from selfish owners who refuse to clean up.

Dogs can be excellent pets in the right environment with the right owners, most people are not the right owners or live in the right environment that is fair to them or engage their dogs to their full capabilities as working animals. Heaven forbid you admit to disliking dogs anywhere else though without getting skewered.

I think a large part of it is that a lot of people don't know how to read a cat's body language so they can't tell when the cat is feeling happy or affectionate.

While I'm not for killing them brutally, I just want people to stop breeding them.
To me, if you get a pitbull you MUST fix it.
They're not even loyal, how many times in the news you see people attacked by their family dog? Cute pictures of your beast wont make it innocent, don't blame me when you'll lose half of your face due your "baby"
People often bring up other races and say shit like "Golden Retrievers and Dachsunds are more aggressive!"
First of all:
1) Golden Retrievers are not bred to kill. They make great service and therapy dogs, plus tell me how many times you've seen a golden retriever in the news
2) Yess, Dachsunds and other small dogs are more aggressive but one dachsund or chihuahua alone can't kill you, they can physically inflict deadly wounds, you need a lot of them to be deadly. With a pitbull, you just need one bit.

Plus don't get me started on the pugs and bulls
I know a lot of people who gets pugs because they're cute and meme-y with that "ugly cute" but I just call them animal haters, since pugs are bred to be sick. They cannot breath, run and they often their skin gets infected and their joints get dislocated a lot.
Bulls are so shit-ly bred that they cannot breath and always do that HHHHHHHHHHRRHRHRHH HRHRRRHRHRH sound when they walk and cannot naturally give birth, every bull has to get a c-section.

Im not a fan of dogs. I dont mind being around them, theyre cute sometimes. Dont like living with one though.

I strongly dislike my gfs chihuahua sometimes because it literally just shits and pisses on things and has a loud yelpy bark. Its absolutely frustrating because loud sounds freak me out because of how bad my anxiety is. He eats the cat food just to puke it out everywhere. Ive got to put her bowl in odd places just to keep him away from it.

It also sheds a lot. Little puddles of white fur wherever he goes. Before we replaced our vaccum, we had a second carpet. Sucks considering my dark wardrobe, too.

His owner also gets mad at me for getting upset with him and allowing my cat on my pillows, lap and letting her sleep with me and stuff (she has dark fur and doesnt stink/need baths as often).

but anyway, it frustrates her. “he’s just a dog! thats how dogs are!” no hes a loud stinky boy and i dont like our apartment reeking of piss


Its mostly the owners I have beef with, though. I know dogs can be great if their owners are. Its really just about upbringing.

Cats being killed or dead on-screen is way more accepted than dead dogs, too. Stranger Things and The Shape of Water are the two most recent things I've seen with dead cats and I only ever saw a handful of complaints, whereas any disaster movie featuring a dog always has mass hysteria about whether or not it'll live.

Not that I want to see (fictional) animals die or anything, but it's disheartening to see the empathy people reserve for dogs and not cats.

Older movies didn't do this as badly, The Thing had that pretty gruesome scene with the dog being revealed to be the thing. And pretty sure there was a dead dog shown in Maximum Overdrive.

It's not a defect to like dogs. Most people love dogs. It's like the most human thing ever to love dogs. I don't want one because they're dirty and I'm a bit scared of them but acting like it's not normal to like dogs is retarded.

Thinking about it, there are more dead dogs in cinema than I remembered, but dog deaths are treated more respectfully, either being off-camera like guard dogs being shot or being the crux of an emotional arc.
John Wick and I Am Legend (and all those A Boy and His Dog movies) actually treat the dogs' deaths as consequential and pivotal to emotional arcs, while dead cats are pretty much treated like pest control like >>292250 infers (gay illustrator guy in The Shape of Water has like twenty cats–so what's one dead one? Then in Stranger Things, it was all part of a sad, lonely woman joke).
The only movie I can think of that treats dead dogs irreverently is Barking Dogs Never Bite, but it's not done as an aside or some joke, and is crucial to the plot.

I mean, I sort of get why there's no cat equivalent to A Boy and His Dog (or A Person and Their Horse) since dogs, horses, and humans have task or goal oriented bonds, but it still bums me out. I'd prefer all animals in movies to make it till the end, but there's definitely a more casual treatment of non-dog animal deaths.

WE made them that way, so we have a duty to keep them safe, since we've stripped all or most of their natural traits needed for survival.

a cat's first reaction is to run and hide away from whoever is harassing them. they do not immediately become aggressive like many dogs do when harassed. if a baby continued to chase and corner them then yeah theyd be scratched but small children do not have the motor skills to keep up with an evasive cat so it very seldom happens.

Thiiis. Rarely will a cat continue to attack or pursue a human if it's intimidated by it or afraid of it. Dogs do. Cats generally evade because they have limited defenses. Their bodies are designed for agility and speed, so evading is generally what they do and gives them the greatest chance of survival.

Lol no. Ever heard of cows, sheeps, goats and even chickens? Go to a farm someday and ask how these animals act. Never heard of anyone being attacked by a cow, a sheep or a chicken, and I live in a rural area my entire life. (bulls and male goats can be territorial though you hear way less people dying because of them than dogs exactly because people take precautions and don't treat them like innocent angels). People are just super biased about dogs.

It's strange, one of my closest friends and her boyfriend have two dogs; a Pomeranian and a larger dog that I can't remember the breed. They love them, and I can tolerate them to spend time with them, but their affection for the dogs is alien to me. I'd honestly prefer not being around the dogs, but I like being with my friends more.

With guys though, it's almost as though as soon as I get to know them, it's a sort of "me vs. the dog" thing, especially if it's a larger breed. "Oh yeah, my dog and I have been through everything together", like I'm suddenly the dog's wicked stepmother or something.

This.

Honestly getting tired of it in my case. The dog always comes first, and I rarely get to spend time with my SO, and his dog takes up a ton of his time, seriously, like an inordinate amount of time, and it's time I can't spend with him and the dog together, either, so he's just choosing to spend time with the dog. I get it, I really do, but honestly, it's hurtful, especially when you're in long term relationships with these guys to feel so second fiddle to their dogs.

It's like, obviously, all of our pets have been there when our other relationships haven't worked out or when our lives have been tough, duh? Besides, where is your dog going to go? Honestly this "they've always been there" doesn't count for much when they're fully fucking dependent on you and dogs are as servile as they are, like, ???

i'm probably the biggest animal lover around so that includes dogs, it's not the pets i have problems with, it's the owners usually. they think that people not liking or wanting to be around dogs = animal abuse/wanting all dogs to die, and are generally very inconsiderate of why people might not like them. it could be because of fear, allergies, or even just the fact that most dogs are very excitable so it can be exhausting to be around the energy or having take care of one.

most dog people are also not even close to diligent enough about training and allow their pets to be poorly behaved solely because they think it's cute for them to be a disturbance to others. cat people can be pretty annoying too but they don't make as many excuses for them when they're bad and don't always take it as a personal attack when somebody says they don't like cats.

don't even get me started on how people breed dogs to have "cute" features while completely ignoring the health issues the poor animal's going to suffer with its entire life. sigh

Do cats go on killing sprees if treated badly? No. And what does "bad owner" even mean? I feel like for most people prefering your children over your dogs or daring to scold it if it destrys your house already counts as "animal abuse" kek

Just a few of the people terribly injured or killed by pitbulls. But I guess it's all their own fault because bad owners and such, you know. Look at those wounds, they look like they're made by some monster in some shitty movie, but no, these are things "fur babies" are cabable of.

I love some breeds of small dogs, but I do not like big dogs. I am not comfortable around them, and I don’t ever want to own one, especially pitbulls, but 90% of men these days make loving big dogs their entire personality trait. Then they’ll turn around and insult and mock me for liking and having a small dog. My ex boyfriend wanted a dog so badly, but he never had a pet before, even as a kid, and had no clue what went into pet ownership. He worked all day long and lived in a tiny ass studio apartment and he thought this was an appropriate for a big ass adopted pitbull. He ignored me, an actual dog owner, when I warned him about the realities of pet ownership.

not really. no dogs should be treated like that. people who deal regularly with dog attacks (vets, animal behaviorists, doctors that commonly treat dog attacks) say that small dogs shouldn't be treated that way and babied, because it causes them to be even more aggressive on average and attack at the drop of a hat. if you want your yorkie to rip your lip clean off, go ahead, i guess.

no one said they're exactly the same in terms of their capability to rip your shit the fuck up, but a small dog can easily rip off your lip/s or fuck your face up super easily. treating them like babies and giving them mushy mushy kisses because they're tiny is dumb. attacks on humans by them tend to be less reported but on average they're more aggressive than larger dogs. if you care about dogs, you shouldn't excuse anyone treating them like babies, because they're not, and they can still be quarantined and put down if they attack someone unprovoked and they report it.

treating your dog like anything but a dog, regardless of size, will get you an aggressive piece of shit who you can't take around anyone or anywhere. I used to teach pet training at PetSmart, basic puppy school type stuff. one couple refused to listen to me that they shouldn't carry their chihuahua puppy everywhere or it'll become aggressive. sure enough in a few mere weeks the puppy was growling and attacking anyone that came close to it while the owners held it and even bit another owner in class. they disappeared after that and I'm sure their dog is even shittier now.

I actually used to love dogs But after my step dad came into the picture and kept bringing dogs into the house, I absolutely hated dogs. He adopted a dog out of fucking no where, made me keep my cats in a bed room for weeks, then chose to introduce the dog to a cat, who then tried to fucking kill my cat and he still had the nerve to say it was my cats fault. I had to get between that dog and my cats and our other dog so many times I have scars from the dog biting me and have had to get stitches from it and my bastard step dad didn't get rid of the dog till my mother threatened to leave him for it. He then adopted another dog, who still attacked our cats but oh "since he didn't bite he's okay" and allowed his dog to fucking attack my cats and scratch them and blamed the cat for it. He then decided my cat was the problem and let her loose on the side of a random street. He then got another dog to fill the space that was 'free' . And both of his fucking dogs were untrained and would piss and shit everywhere, everyday we would come home to the house trashed because he couldn't be assed to bother training his useless fucking dogs. Those dogs couldn't do no wrong, they could attack his fucking kids, the other dog, destroy precious fucking photos and they would still be angels. We eventually had to get rid of them when we ended up homeless, and it was the happiest day of my life. Even to this day, when I have more scars than I can count from bites from those dogs, he still has the nerve to say it was my fault for being attacked again and again.

i dislike the focus on pitbulls wrt aggression. smaller and medium dogs are still shown to be similarly aggressive, if not more, but aren't as stigmatized because the damage isn't generally as severe.

obviously we need to treat pitbulls like the dangers that they are (i do think some of them can be quite sweet, but i don't think civilians should own them, for the safety of both animal and human), but we also need to realize that ALL dogs, can be aggressive on a dime. daschunds were found in a few studies to be the most aggressive of all breeds studied, but because of the fact that they're smaller, the attacks are severely under-reported. chihuahuas and jack russells came in second and third after them.

pitbulls aren't perfect angels and are terribly dangerous, but they're really no more aggressive than smaller dogs, they're just a bigger risk and much, much more deadly.

All dogs can be aggressive, but most dogs weren’t bred by trash humans to actually -be aggressive- and aren’t 50-75lbs. of pure terrier muscle. That alone is a stupid combination in a ‘domestic’ pet.

95% of dog owners can’t handle or control a mid to large sized pit/staffy/molosser type and shouldn’t be allowed to own them. This includes most people who think they can handle a pit. Of the twelve or so pits I know, three pups raised from birth by good dog owners were put down due to schizo animal and human aggression plus a way too strong prey drive that cropped up around the second year of life. The rest are good dogs, but they need to be highly controlled, exercised heavily, and watched carefully.

The breed isn’t that great, tbh. It’s fucked up, because we one hundred percent made them this way, but I’m not a fan of advocates telling people that they’re the sweetest dogs ever, because they’re not. They’re not nanny dogs and they’re not the calmest breed. They get pushed on people at shelters way too frequently, and they shouldn’t be. People who own pits need to be strong mentally and physically, and they need to be accepting of the fact that they choose to walk a bomb on a leash and should treat that with the seriousness it deserves.

Just as my shorthaired pointer, who’s never hunted in her life, will still stop and point at anything she perceives as game, a pit has a real strong and unfortunate likelihood to show aggression at some point. It’s hundreds of years of selective breeding for shitty traits that are difficult to be rid of, like it or not.

The fact that dogs are so popular and aren't considered an "exotic" pet means there are tons of horrific dog owners, and by proxy, tons of horrific dogs.

I don't particularly like dogs but dog owners are just so selfish, i could vent about it all day.

I can't even count the times that I had to jump over leashes because owners just let their dogs walk on a 20m leash, not caring if they block the whole sidewalk in the process.
One time, a dog in my apartment complex bit my leg while i was waiting for the elevator. The owner didn't even apologize because it was 'just a small dog' so it apparently it was no big deal.

What annoys me most is that i can't take my cat to the park close by. She loves taking walks but it's too dangerous with all the people letting their dogs run free even though there is a proper dog park with a fence around it in the same park.
It's forbidden to let your dogs roam free outside of the dog park but noone cares.

because cats literally weren't inbred with specific purpose for hundred and hundreds of years, and dogs, especially purebred dogs, were? since cats domesticated themselves, inbreeding and breeding in general only happened recently, whereas dog-human history has been completely predicated on us breeding and inbreeding them to make them more compliant and useful for us

That's a really unflattering picture of a pug.
Anyway, their eyes do not pop out unless the owner is abusing them.
A bigger problem is their breathing and joint issues.
A great thing is that recently some breaders are trying to undo the damage done to pugs in the last 100 years by restoring the race. I'm looking forward to retromops becoming more popular.

I love pugs, but it hurts me that they suffer from health issues due to their cuteness. If you look at vintage paintings of pugs, they used to look like retromops rather than what we currently recognise as pugs.

if you take a look at videos of big wild cats, you'd see that their mannerisms aren't that different. it's just that house cats are small. trust me, if domesticated cats were the size of some dogs, tons more people would be getting mauled. cats are great but even my sweet, gentle cat won't tolerate people who disrespect his space.

https://www.dallasobserver.com/news/dallas-boy-mauled-by-pit-bull-bounces-back-case-to-go-to-trial-10389348
>Last weekend, I caught up with the parents of Luca Romero, the 2-year-old boy mauled by a pit bull at a dog adoption event in Klyde Warren Park in December.
>The boy’s parents told me the wounds on his chest and arm were so jagged and dirty they had to be left partially open while they healed in order to prevent infection, so the scarring will be permanent.
>Another kind of injury is harder to see. The father, Dr. Alan Romero, 37, an anesthesiologist, said, “Now he sleeps with us. He was sleeping by himself before. For a while, he had nightmares two or three times a night. He would wake up screaming and yelling, ‘No, no, no.’”

>Dallas Pets Alive, a “no-kill” nonprofit pet rescue group, put on the pet rescue event where the child was attacked. The pit bull was on a leash held by a man who had adopted the animal the day before. Luca, 2, ran a few steps toward the dog to pet it, his mother said, and the dog attacked.

>Ten days after the attack, Dallas Pets Alive published a statement putting blame for the attack on the child and excusing the dog. “In Rusty’s case,” the online statement said, “we believe it was an isolated incident given the exciting, but still stressful, environment of a busy park with strange noises/smells and an unknown person on his level reaching for him.” Dallas Pets Alive is pursuing a lawsuit to prevent the city from euthanizing the dog.

>Since the attack, the parents have received angry emails and messages attacking them for wanting to see the dog put down. “One of them,” Romero said, “said that the kid should be put down and the dog saved.”

>I have received several emails expressing the same or similar sentiments, often blaming the 2-year-old for frightening the pit bull and using the word “innocent” to describe the dog.

>“We understand dogs can bite out of fear or if they get startled. This was definitely not a simple fear-bite. It was a mauling. The dog bit him and dragged him to the ground. It was trying to shake him.

>“The only reason it could not do it was because four or five guys jumped in so fast and held the dog down. It was trying to shake him, but all these people held it down, so it couldn’t shake him anymore. Then it took like a minute to pry the dog off of him. It wouldn’t let go.”


And of course people left absolutely lovely comments underneath that organisation's propaganda video:
>Save Rusty euthanize the neglectful parents of the unattended child!!!!!
>Don't kill another animal because of negligent parents. The person in charge of Rusty had him leashed and by his side. He did the right things, the parents are to blame because they weren't in control of their kid. Put the blame where it belongs not against Rusty for being a dog.
>Rusty did nothing wrong.The brat and its incompetent parents are to blame.They should be euthanized. -> the brat is a kid -> That doesn't matter that the brat is a kid. All animal abusers need to wiped out!
So a 2 yo getting mauled by a dog is abusing it…? But dog hating people are cruel and insane, yes.
>dumb fucking bitch the dog was sitting and was on a leash when the dumb fuck kid ran up to him and spooked him. What the fuck would you do if someone lunged at you unprovoked??? People like you need to be put down dumbass
>LOOKED AS THOUGH DAD WAS DRUNK AT ADOPTION

I dont understand how people can even look at their shitty ugly dogs the same after watching them maul a baby. You have to be completely sociopathic to watch an animal rip apart a small child and say "my dog is blameless!!! the kid abused it by looking at it the wrong way!"

if this guy had just rescued a clearly unstable animal 2 days prior why did he even have it at a loud busy event? you cannot convince me that this dog was sitting calmly and not completely stressed to the max. a child toddling towards it would not flip the kill mode switch. both owner and rescue are trash.

The police seemed to be dog nutters too
>The officer shoves and threatens to handcuff Alan Romero, the father of the boy, who is trying to make sure the dog's owner will not remove it from the park. The police officer criticizes the father for being “emotional.”
>Finally, the police officer announces to a crowd of dog rescuers that the owner of the dog has done nothing wrong.
>the dog rescue people rush the cop as soon as he shows up and urge him not to do anything that might harm the dog
>“The child's parents should be charged with a crime,” Ms. Flores writes, “since the child started the altercation.”
>In the police video, the dog owner tells the cop that he has owned the dog for one day. One day. The owner also tells the cop that the dog is part pit. You know what? How about not even going to the park full of children with your brand-new adult pit bull that you’ve been around for one day?

And on youtube:
>Looks like the problem is an unleashed kid, not a bad dog. Parenting fail, as usual.
>Rusty had every right to respond the way he did. hell, i'd like to bite people that get too close to me.
>Will the child be killed when he bites someone? The parents suffered the consequences of not watching their child and are lucky that the child did not run out in front of a car. They should take parenting more seriously and not attack Rusty, just as their child has done. Rusty does not deserve to die for doing what most animals would do to an uncontrolled child.

Fucking repulsive. That kid is traumatized for life and will probably need a lot of therapy. He didn't do anything wrong trying to pet the dog, these people are always claiming that all dogs are so innocent and friendly and yet the minute a child interacts with one, the dog attacks, and it's the kid's fault? At the very least, put a muzzle on that animal if it gets ~startled~ so easily.

Having lived in Dallas, I'm ashamed to say that this behavior of people is common. When I was a kid, I was walking my dogs with my sister and when we turned at the end of our drive to get onto the sidewalk the neighbor's pit saw us and charged. He went right for me, I was like 7. Our chow got in the way and I started screaming and my mom ran out to intervene, step dad with his gun.

Fucking neighbors blamed us and our dogs for aggravating their pit who "din do nuffin" and threatened calling the cops on us for threatening to shoot the dog that just almost mauled a fucking kid.

This is why I hate pits and pit owners/apologists. What other breed has such rabid fans backing it? People will acknowledge that GSDs, chows, and Rottweilers can be aggressive even if that dog is well trained and has never shown any signs of aggression. But when a pit ACTUALLY MAULS someone, these people crawl out of the woodwork to defend a vicious dog they don’t know. I wonder if they would still feel the same if they saw it in person?

This thread reminds me of my ex.

She'd do it to the point where it'd upset me and put me on the defensive because it was so unwarranted. I like both cats and dogs (but prefer cats), and that relationship really turned me off from dog people.

Even though I don’t prefer dogs at all, I don’t let on about that around dog people. Maybe a bird shat on him once or something, but I feel like saying that out of nowhere, especially to someone who has a bird and wasn’t even talking about it… is this some kind of social retardation? lol

the fist time I ever heard of pitbulls was in the news when one jumped a fence, snatched a baby from its mothers arms, grabbed it by its head and killed it.
I guess the breed wasn't as widely known back then because on the report they went on extensive detail about their jaws and why their bites are more damaging than those from other dogs.
I was like 8 y/o and I remember thinking why would anyone pick such a dangerous dog as a pet.

And then the dog goes apeshit on their kids or other pets and the cycle repeats itself.

I love a lot of dog breeds, but my hate for pitbulls is, like, next level.

I hate the virtue signalling, I hate the woke hipster bullshit that has become synonymous with pitbull ownership and advocacy.

Stg, people only adopt them because they don't like the connotation that there are differences in dog breeds. Inherent aggression in a breed of dogs always makes those "we're all one race" people because it doesn't fit the "woke" mindset.

"No, there's no difference in dog breeds! They're all one race–the dog race! Every dog is exactly the same as every other dog and only their owner determines whether or not they're friendly."

It's like they can't distinguish between raising a human person with free will and an animal.

I've known a lot of nice people ill equipped to deal with their nasty dogs because they hauled off and got something big and aggressive to defy some stereotype. This logic when it comes to pets is not only flawed, but dangerous and has deadly consequences. Ugh.

Where did I say I enjoy animal abuse? I don't. That's why i warned for it and didn't post it. I'm going to explain since I guess you guys are completely missing the point.

If I see a bunch of dog owners in a space together going on about how much they hate X animal, how they shot or poisoned a cat outside and laughed about it, how their dog killed a small animal, or go into spaces where people grieve other people injured/killed by dogs and go apologist for the fucking dog… yeah, no, I want to upset them. Of course it's sad an animal died but honestly, that snake killed it fast and it's not like the puppy was pointlessly tortured. It's unfortunate, but the goal isn't to jerk off over animals in pain. It's to piss off these fucking subhumans who do things like I described above.

This video bothers me because there were two incidents where this happened and both involved pitbulls. One was where I found a one ripping off the front of my parent's car and there was a mom cat and her kittens inside. My dad had to use a metal bat to chase the dog off and the family of cats was ok. The second time this pretty orange cat hid under a car but the pitbull dug him out and tore him apart. I will never forget cleaning up the poor animal's bruised and bloodied body and telling my neighbor that his favorite neighborhood cat was killed.

There have also been incidents where one lunged at some neighbor's kids as they were getting out of the car and they luckily got the door slammed shut back in time. I've been lunged at and have had to run from one a few times. I'm honestly terrified of pitbulls at this point. They either have no owners or the owner is just "lol he won't hurt anything" and then it lunges at a grown man.

I don't understand the point of getting this big dangerous animal and not even bothering to be responsible with it. If people want one they need to be conscious of what it can do and take precautions necessary to prevent people and other animals from getting hurt. I don't hate dogs and love some but pitbulls fucking terrify me. Every negative dog experience I've had has come from pits so I'd prefer not to be around them if I can help it.

Look, I don't like seeing animals die either, and I'm glad they're being rescued. But this storm has killed 33 people. I'm not seeing tweets about the people who are suffering getting thousands of likes and retweets.

So the cats were okay. But people in those coastal areas got fucked hard. Not ever place allows for pets, and in the face of a natural disaster, people take priority, I'm sorry.

It's telling that the most popular tweets before the storm hit were people telling people to take their pets with them too. It seems the tweet popularity seems to be animal related stuff, bitching about Trump/North Carolina itself because there are people here who vote red, and then people actually retweeting about how the people are effected. I'm not seeing too many things being retweeted about how to help donate either. It's much easier to bitch about people leaving their dogs behind than to actually donate to shelters.

Sage for my salt. Sorry, I just hate seeing how people online act when shit like this happens. On the positive, in real life, people are helping each other out, which makes me happy.

It’s allowed in the Netherlands, and many people rely on public transport here. IIRC people do need to pay for large dogs (though not small ones that can sit on your lap) and I think they’re not allowed during rush hour, but I see dogs very often in de bus. The big ones usually lay down in the aisle so you have to step over them, which makes me pretty nervous. I’ve never seen one with a muzzle. If they’re supposed to wear one, bus drivers don’t enforce it.

Gotta say, anons, it's kind of annoying, this focus on pitbull temperament ONLY as if it's specific to pitbulls only and that most other dog breeds are not as aggressive as pibbles are, as if they're actually uncommonly aggressive in comparison to other dogs, when other dogs are just as aggressive because they're all retardos that are placed on a pedestal. Pitts are absolute killing machines that cause way more damage than other dogs, yes, people are downplaying that they're killing machines because they want to seem compassionate, but studies show they're not actually more aggressive than other dogs. IMO, intent matters, and any animals with terrible temperament like almost all dogs have, on average, shouldn't be freaking idolized the way dogs are.

I get so annoyed when I see people bringing their teacup dogs with them as “support animals”. Get the fuck out of here. I smell such bullshit. Carrying them around in grocery carts while they’re shaking in complete fucking fear with their tails tucked between their legs. Why do you need an emotional support animal in these cases if it is a legit registered animal?? Even I have bad anxiety but I learn to cope and deal with it. I don’t need a stupid fake service animal for that to show off. I think the only animal that should ever be allowed is dog guides for blind and deaf people.

When I was in a pool for Uber, the driver was talking to the other passenger about you can just go to your primary doctor and LIE about anxiety or depression and ask for a service dog registration. they’ll give you a slip for it apparently. I was biting my tongue so hard. Who the fuck proudly lies about that just to carry around a dog in public while it’s absolutely scared out of its mind.

I already acknowledged that though. This doesn't tell me anything I've not said. I already said they do more damage. I'm talking about their temperament vs other breeds.

I'm not exonerating or defending pitts. I'm just saying lots of other breeds are shown to be just as likely to be aggressive, and pitts aren't uncommonly aggressive, because shit tons of breeds are just as aggressive, if not moreso, because dogs straight up suck. Pitts are just obviously more dangerous because of their physiology. ALL dogs a shit, though ones that are capable of the most damage (big dogs) shouldn't be pets, ever.

IMO, the "pibbles are the most aggressive everrr!!" is a lie that tries to downplay the fact that so many fucking dogbreeds of all different sizes are aggressive and shit pets. Pittbulls are clearly the most dangerous and end up causing insane amounts of death and damage, and the people that own them are earth-shatteringly retarded, but on the topic of temperament alone, so many dog breeds just suck.

It gets trickier with the law though.

Some huge narcs from family have dogs, they all have dogs and think cats, birds, rabbits, etc aren't "real pets" and laugh or think it's cute when their fucknuts kill smaller animals, some even get (buy) breed dogs just because of the price tag to show off.

One of their dogs is obese, nearly 10 years old, breath stinks so bad, SO BAD that I don't even know how to describe how PUTRID it is, extremely badly behaved, whiny as hell, pee and poop at literally everywhere and do you think their owners even care to clean their mess? No, they think their fucknut dog is just ~so cute and innocent you're jealous and get a real pet already

I hate how these owners treat their gross dogs like spoiled kids in the same way a narcissistic parent treats their golden child (their favorite one) or make fun/try to dismiss others for grieving about the passing of their pet that isn't a dog but make sure to cry a river and bring flowers everyday to their fucknuts' burial when they die most of the times due to their lack of decent care.

"It just helps them feel better" isn't a valid answer, a lot of things help me feel better that aren't actually treating my illness. It seems like it's just an excuse to carry a pet around like it's something special rather than actually helping the patient or whatever.

Anon, I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say they shoot cats because they're pests. And not even in a rural setting. Cats are seen as pests and dogs are adored despite being 100000000000000x more deadly and dangerous to children, the elderly, other dogs, all other animals, basically all people, etc. It's fucking unbelievable how much cat hate society will tolerate and not even bat an eyelash at because "yeh doggos are our best friends, cats are just assholes that dont need you xD"

No. 299938

Imo the biggest reason people hate cats is because you actually have to put effort into bonding with one. Dogs, when they aren't mauling children, generally seem like doormats that mainly want their owner's approval. I like dogs, I've played with them, I think they're cute and funny and all, but winning the trust of a cat feels more rewarding. I hate it when people treat cats as lesser for not behaving like a different species of animal. Cats are assholes to asshole humans who refuse to learn how to read cat behavior, in my experience.

She kept giving it attention whenever it would act out though, instead of ignoring it or punishing it by telling it to go lay down. So of course the ugly shit walks all over her because it gets its way. I fucking hate dogs like this but it's her fault.

Worst of all she let it out to pee, and it found the spot in the grass where it previously shit and began to eat the shitty grass. I didn't want that shitlord anywhere near me the rest of the time but if course it tried its damnest.

Your friend is a POS for letting her pug go fat.
Any person that considers owning a pug HAS TO take into consideration that for this race getting fat is dangerous, as they might develop hip dysphlasia and joint problems. They are also uncomfortable because of the excess weight.
It's like pug 101 that you have to watch their weight and ask a vet to help you decide how much they can eat and what is healthy.

God I hate people like your friend that adopt animals cause they are cute but don't give a fuck about their responsibilities toward them.

Pugs are bred to be extremely attached to the owner, but most pugs are content to just sit in the same room and watch the human. So not only your friend does not take care of the poor pug's health, but she also failed to teach him good behavior (as you mentioned).

Also don't care about fat cats, but at least a fat cat isn't going to annoyingly bark and try to lick me with its shit covered mouth when I'm trying to have a conversation. Don't need to train a cat to not do that.

Ok so I read a whole lot of comments and I think we can all agree that pitbull dogs are extremely dangerous and honestly I have a dog now and can see why my bf loves shiba inu dogs. They kind of act like cats, have their own head but are really snuggly and don’t smell like dogs, which is surprising. Normally a lot of dogs stink and this is the first time I ever felt like a dog is genuine looking up to you and being totally people friendly and only lick someone’s hand. I’ve been traumatised by a lot of small and big aggressive dogs but if you all ever want a small change of mind, I can advise to a shiba dog. They’re not too big/small, don’t smell, have their own will and can be really polite and smart.
They’re so easy to train instead of what I hear from other dogs (can be a little annoying when they grow up because they chew on everything, but else they get better when they’re a teen)
If someone had a bad experience with this kind of breed, it would be nice to have a discussion on here. I’m always open for that!

And at that she's suggesting a shiba, one of the most temperamental and loudest of dog species. It's a hunting dog; it can be aggressive and not that friendly. They don't always train well either. Definitely not a great starter dog.
Probably a top pick among weebs though. I don't know why farmers cape for dogs so hard itt. You never see people who like cats insisting everyone should have one.

theres a big difference between how YOUR dog acts towards you, a person he is comfortable and trusts, compared to how it acts towards other humans. I mean, sure, exposure therapy can be a good help to people, but exposing people with a fear of dogs around dogs who aren't trained therapy dogs, can be terrible. how would you feel if you had a friend who was scared of your dog, but petted it because you told them it was friendly? but then it bit your friend? like, it's not safe to tell people who hate dogs or are afraid of dogs to just "GET A DOG". not all dogs are the same, training is crucial. an untrained dog can literally kill a person.

Aunt and uncle have this ugly bulldog mix and I hate the beast. They let it rule their house and never disciplined it, so now it has the personality of a spoilt child that thinks it can do whatever it wants.

But personality aside, it's just a shitty dog as it is. It's brachycephalic, meaning in addition to sounding like a busted bagpipe all day it's constantly drooling, snorting, and mouth-breathing. I hate when they bring the thing to visit or if I go over there and I happen to be wearing shorts or a skirt because the thing comes up to my legs and snorts snot all over me. The worst is when he jumps up despite me constantly telling him no and not making any eye contact.
My ignorant aunt just rewards that behavior with attention and baby talk. He's starting to nip people too, which might be let go if he were a little chihuahua but it's serious since he's a gross planet sausage that could easily take off flesh.

In fact just that happened a few months ago when my aunt was playing fetch. Since they conditioned the mutt to think it's cutesy to jump up and bite, he did just that while playing fetch with her. Except he caught his snaggleteeth on her ring and almost de-gloved her entire finger! Except she's a nurse, so instead of being horrified and wanting to change the behavior she just stitched her flesh wound back up and keeps up the charade that her little hitler is a sweet innocent lamb.

This is one of the many reason minorities don’t like dogs, there’s a history of them constantly being attacked by white pet owners and the psychopaths gaslight them and say that’s they are evil and dangerous anyway.

Also interesting because supremacist use this and say that’s they train their dogs to attack blacks. And I can’t stand it because almost every single neighbor in my goddamn culdesac that’s white has a dog. My family has lived in this area since the subdivision was fucking built and every white family that has moved here has dogs that growl at us and still do after being their neighbors for 10 YEARS. There have been too many close calls of me and my extended family getting attatcked wheeler aren’t even on their property.

I happen to have a chihuahua and I hate any dog bigger than a beagle. I've only known one good german shepherd in my life. Retrieverfags are literally the dumbest people around and they all act the same and try to show off their "majestic dog" half of the time all they know what to do is beg the owner to play fetch and lie around and shed fur everywhere.
So many dog owners just collect dogs for popularity points and pretend they care for animals. I know firsthand from my parents.
Our family used to have a Japanese breed of dog when I was a kid and it was so bad. My parents didn't even want to take care of this dog, my sister and I had to do it for them and we were WAY too young and weak to be handling a dog like this. It'd always run away. One time the neighbors came over with blood all over their shirt demanding my parents pay the surgery costs of their little yorkie my dog just tore apart. That was what made my parents give away this dog they never wanted in the first place. They just thought of this dog as an accessory and the breaking point was the dog almost killing another dog lol.
Basically this is how I ended up with my chihuahua, my parents got him and right off the bat they just neglect him, expecting my sister and I to take care of him. Turns out my sister wants nothing to do with the dog either so I had no other choice but to take the dog with me months after I moved in with my boyfriend because of the poor conditions they left him in. His teeth were rotting and I had to get almost half of them pulled. Also, his nails were unclipped since the last time I took him which was over half a year beforehand. I thank the lord my dog gets along with our cats. Bless small dogs like mine. My cats like to mess with him sometimes and it's all fun.

What do you do when your friend/relative/whoever has a big ass dog who jumps and barks really loud and you straight up tell them "I don't like to be around big dogs, they scare me and I don't like being jumped on. Can you please put your dog somewhere else". But they get all "Oh don't worry!!! He wouldn't hurt a fly, he just loves people!!1111". Like… I don't give a FUCK. I like my personal space and I don't like a dog half my size nearly knocking me over and it stinks. It's so fucking annoying. Sometimes I just want to kick it but I'm not that much of an asshole I guess. I just never know what to do in this situation when they don't respect my request to keep the dog away from me. They'll eventually get offended.

our local animal shelter has an unspoken but obvious rule that they will only keep 10-15% breed other than pit in shelter at all times. most of the county is the same way. they prioritize saving the murderdog. most of these have already bitten someone or been given up to another shelter for aggression before they get shuffled around to another shelter. i wish people could see the internal shelter reports on the pits before they take them home, only the most idiotic would do so.

i know this is a dog hate thread but people should let others know that it is legal to ask to see behavior and medical records as well as 'outcomes' before rehoming one of these dogs. a shelter that won't let you see it is hiding something. most people would never bring them home after seeing the paperwork. pic related.

My cousins pitbull bit me and when I reported it, I found out it had a history of biting someone else too. Basically the dog got "quarantined" by Animal Control for ten days and the owner could come get it out after the ten days. The same thing happened when I was bit. they Animal Control guy who came to get the dog knew it by name, because he'd dealt with the beast before. Supposedly, in my state, Animal Control could have the dog taken from the owners, but they'd have to go to court for that or some shit. The guy from Animal Control seemed pretty disgusted by the whole bureaucracy of it, really. He was country as fuck and I could tell if he had his way, the dog would have been fucking dead the first time.

i'm sorry you had that experience. i was bit by a pit mix in my front yard. my seven year old niece and i were walking her dog on a leash and the neighbor's kids let him out. they were laughing when he attacked us and i remember that more than the actual bite.

worked in shelters all my life, so i kind of knew what to do, (the dog was, lucky for me, not very strong because he was neglected and underfed; if you're able, punch or use the hard edge of your hand to strike them repeatedly in the throat and the nose) but still ended up getting bit badly on the thigh trying to protect my niece and her pet. the owner ran out and pulled him off me.

the kicker was that the owners didn't vaccinate and laughingly told me i was a crybaby for asking for proof of rabies vaccination, so i called AC and let them handle it. the dog was taken for quarantine for the standard ten days, but the kids continued to let him out constantly after that. they moved about a year later, which was great, but i will never forgive them for laughing at me because i a) got bit and b) for expecting them to prove vax. they were trash and frankly i didn't want to sue for damages even though i had a case. i didn't want to deal with them letting the dog out to teach me a lesson or some shit.

And other dog owners will enable their shitbeasts, even when they're not biting people. Just look at those dumbasses over in the dog love thread who laughed about some dog killing a cat.

imo it's a huge amount of pressure. pit rescues donate a lot of cash. most shelters truly want to find homes for the animals they house; cats, dogs, rabbits, the occasional snake. but that money means that the higher ups at the shelters feel uncomfortable saying no to these dogs and the people who advocate for them.

too, most shelters at this point have at least one or two pibble fanatics on staff. it's a huge problem right now and i'm not sure how things will right themselves.

anons can check their local shelters and see just how insanely high the percentage of pits has become. the population continues to explode, aided by ads that straight up lie about the suitability of these murderdogs for rehoming.

this is a dogo argentino, another 'misunderstood' breed that is beginning to fill up shelters. one could ask why so many of them are being dumped at shelters to begin with, of course the answer is that they too are bred to fight.

Apparently he felt like he couldn't breathe and started freaking out. But the dog knew that before he even started acting like anything was wrong. Shit's crazy.

Oh my god, this is horrifying. I may be a hypocondriac but I have terrible anxiety about life altering diseases such as these. And the article said 74% of dogs and 54% of cats have this bacteria??? I have a cat and now I'm terrified to pet him now. I know the article says its rare but does anyone know the actual chances of being infected?

No. 308988

>>308530
I have a hard time believing that this was from a lick. Unless he let the dog lick an open wound, lick him in the mouth, or something of that nature, it's most likely from a bite. Animals do carry the bacteria, but it's like staph. It's everywhere, but it's only harmful when it enters your body via an open wound.

>>308876
Don't be worried. If you're a healthy adult and take preventative measures like cleaning bites from the moment you've been bitten or seeing a doctor if the wound looks infected (this also goes for scratches from cats) you'll be fine. Humans also carry the bacteria. If it makes you less worried, things that can kill us like staph and strep are in like, 50% of all healthy adults.
It's genuinely so rare that the number of cases that come from animals is hard to track.

I don't hate all dogs but I FUCKING HATE when they aren't trained and they do stupid shit and their owners think it's cute or just fucking let it happen.

Example- my partner and I were going for a walk and we walked through a park to get home.
There was noone really around except for this guy and his huge dog, like a mastiff looking thing. They were ages away, like the other side of the oval/park.

Anyway, this massive dog comes bounding up and I nervously smile and move to the opposite side of my boyfriend.

I don't pat stranger's dogs or animals unless they say I can, or I ask.
So I calmly move away from this beast, but he proceeds to shove his head constantly into my crotch aggressively sniffing.
I am very scared at this point and am attempting to move away calmy, because this dog is literally headbutting my vagina through my jeans. I then realise I am on my period and I think the dog knows or something.

So my boyfriend is trying to create a barrier between me and the dog but it keeps harrassing me so I keep stepping away from it. The owner, some middle aged fat guy is well over 10 metres away is laughing and walking over extremely slowly.
Not calling his dog away, NOTHING.
I step away more and he yells out 'he doesn't bite' with a smile.

I take this as an opportunity to try to nicely shove the dog's head away from my crotch and push the dog gently away. It starts getting more excited and starts to jump on me, I'm getting really scared and panicky, but the more I step away, the more it jumps on me and at one point bites the edge of my sleeve of my cardigan and pulls playfully. I'm trying to pull my sleeve out of it's mouth, all the while this horse of a dog is pulling on it and fucking jumping on it, and I'm saying 'stop! Please stop!'

Meanwhile the owner is still taking his sweet time to walk over laughing the whole time and my stupid bf at the time is saying 'stop getting so worked up, he's getting even more excited the more you try and pull away, your panicking too much, he thinks you are playing'

Meanwhile I'm fucking terrified.
Fat fuck owner finally comes up and calls dog and laughs and says 'he won't hurt cha' then walks off with dog. Didn't even apologise and I was on the verge of tears.

I would never let a dog do that to a stranger! Either put them on a leash or train it better! You can't just let your stupid animal harrass people! And if people look scared or alarmed, actually fucking run and a get your dog. Some strangers coukd be scared or allergic, you don't just let your fucking dog do whatever it wants!

I'm a tall girl and this dog was still bigger than me. It was also extremely heavy. Who leaves animals that big unrestrained!?

I'm a big fan of Halloween and it's always been pumpkins, ghost, witches and cats.

I actually love dogs, and cats, most animals, really.

However i feel like this is a good place to put this opinion.

I really like that you guys in this thread really call out the "treating your pet like a child" bullshit. But particularly with dogs.

It fucking creeps me out and pisses me off to a large degree. I have a toddler, and I'd say you certainly can draw a lot of accurate comparisons between child rearing and pet ownership. But that's where it ends.

My toddler is a sapient, intellectual being that will hopefully participate in human society someday. A dog is… newsflash, Fucking NOT!

Stop calling them furbabies. Stop dressing them in baby clothes. Stop doing shit to emulate early childhood that harms the dog's discipline and behavior. Stop this ridiculous bullshit where you're more mature and enlightened than parents because you chose to adopt a shit eating animal from the pound instead of give birth to a shit spewing baby.

Dogs can be family members, they can be loved and treasured. But holy fucking shit. THEY. ARE. ANIMALS!

And its this attitude which i think contributes to irresponsible pet owners who assume its all right to get their mangy mutt near my kid without my explicit permission.

My kid LOVES dogs but I'm trying to teach him early on that he should always wait to approach and be cautious. Because i don't care that fluffy is soooo good with YOUR kids. He's an unpredictable animal that could snap at unfamiliar situations, and i have no way of knowing what the level of discipline is. Though if you are one of the assholes that assumes kids and dogs = always ok then i have to assume a lack of it.

That's to say nothing of these pricks that keep taking their dogs out without leashes. Super, a situation where if your stupid dog decides my toddler is biteable there's nothing to physically stop him. But of course "i trained him its ok :D" I'm going to start calling and reporting fuckers that don't leash their animals, since most cities in my state have leash laws.

tbh exactly. honestly, owning a cat is very similar to having a real relationship with a person in that they demand respect from you and don't need you. cats demand that you respect their boundaries, so it really does mimic human relationships a lot more than most animals, but especially dogs. i agree about it being fucked up if you think of your pet as something you 'own' and treat it like people treat dogs, but certain animals straight up do not allow that shit and don't put up with it, which is really nice.

I suppose this is more about dog owners rather than dogs themselves but whatever.
I grew up in a farming community in the UK and over the years so many farmers have had their livestock attacked by dogs. Either because the dog has been let off the leash while being walked or because it had escaped.
Owners attitude towards this is disgusting and arrogant. They ignore the warning signs plastered everywhere and cannot believe their baby is capable of killing another animal, completely ignoring the fact that it’s in a dogs instict to chase.
I know farmers who have lost thousands of pounds and had their earnings effected for years after an attack.

Yeah it's fun a week later; you letting her roam around the house and not even moving her away as I cried loudly, asking sarcastically why I started sobbing even though many times I've said to keep the dog away. The dog also looked so dirty and I saw a lot of my relatives wanting to cuddle it. No thanks.

Bless this thread
It really opened my eyes on how much we really coddle dogs
I live in a neighborhood/town filled with dog lovers/owners so I have a shitton of stories about people not properly handling/caring for their dogs and I know quite a few people who were attacked by them as a child. Most of them have scars on their upper lips. Here are some off the top of my head;
There's this wiener/chihuahua mix dog that always comes out from my neighbors yard and runs around the neighborhood barking at cats in the middle of the night next to my window
or scratching on my front door(my mom feeds her chicken to get her to leave, which is counter productive since she keeps coming back everyday for more) We can't even get into our
cars without the dog trying to jump in. She's a sweet dog but a huge nuisance, and I don't know why her damn owner keeps letting her out to run wild and shit on everyone's lawn.
SO tempted to call Animal Control so they can at least keep her off the street, it's surprising she hasn't been hit by a car yet.
Considering people around here just love to go 40 mph in a 15mph neighborhood, and run over any cat they see on purpose.
Some other annoying things include a guy who walks his giant german shepard super early in the morning and doesn't clean up after it (along with other dog walkers who don't know what a fucking doggybag is), there's literally multiple giant piles of dogshit concentrated on the side of this one house (I feel bad for the people who live there,) you can literally smell it from across the street. There's at least 3 houses around the neighborhood that have giant dogs that are super aggressive towards people walking by, to the point where the wooden fences of two out of the three houses keeping the dogs in is broken/leaning outward./as of recently though all of them are gone, which is a relief but looking back I dread thinking about what if that wooden fence had given out.
I completely agree with the pit bull hate as well, my dad went over to my uncle's house to do some yard work and my uncle had recently bought a pit bull (It wasn't quite a puppy but not full grown either)
And he told my dad, "oh don't worry he doesn't bite :)" and of course an hour into working the pit bull takes a chomp out of my dad's upper thigh. Poor guy had to get stitches and made my uncle pay for the medical bills.
You'd think my damn uncle would have more common sense to not get a damn pit bull on account of his daughter getting bit by one when she was a baby but I guess he just cares about the breed hype and how expensive it is.

I love this thread, especially the spergy replies from bad dog owners.

I think that's what the majority of us actually hate. The "pet culture" in America, especially related to dogs, is fucked. They're treated like accessories, which makes it even stranger when some of their owners are so rabidly desperate to convince everyone else that their dog is superior. I know so many people who think it's "cute" and "funny" when their dog has an anxiety attack and destroys a ton of things, even if they aren't things that belong to them. I have dealt with so many entitled fucking cunts who have told me to "get over" their dogs nearly killing my friends smaller dog, digging up my tulips in front of me, destroyijg the handmade mailbox that my late grandpa made for me, etc. Maybe these people would be just as bad if they owned turtles/birds/cats, who knows, but they seem to have based their cult around torturing dogs and the rest of us.

Also, dog/animal breeding is fucked. Especially breeds like bulldogs, or other species that surfer from serious health issues and live poor quality of lives because we decide they have to look a certain way to fit in with our completely fucking made up standards. If you have a bulldog that you bought and didn't rescue, you did a shitty thing and should feel ashamed of yourself.

One of them was a seven month old baby.

Call me an OCD bitch but I cringe at videos of large dogs licking small babies. The cat ones annoy me too, but I can't understand why anyone would put a young baby near the mouth of an animal that licks it's bumhole and eats unknown things and meat. Do these people not worry about germs? Like toddlers are okay I guess, but a young baby being licked on the face by a german shepherd or great dane is fucking disgusting.

Then again I'm one of those 'bad' owners who's dog sleeps in a dog house outside and it only comes inside for short periods or when it's a cold night.
I mean even though I bought a large expensive dog house and walk my dog everyday, these dog freaks would call me heartless for not letting my dog sleep on my bed.

So, I'm staying at a pet friendly hotel and the room across and to the left of mine has an about 100 pound pitbull occupant. I'm usually very cautious around these dogs for obvious reasons. Today, as I'm waiting for the elevator, the guy comes out with this dog to go down also. She's very short, wide, and strong looking. Came right up to me with her ears and head down, tail wagging, licking my toes because I was wearing flip flops. Is this submissive dog body language? She seemed very friendly considering that I'm a total stranger. Was still somewhat uncomfortable. She was on a leash, though. The owner called her is "emotional support." Ha. No vest, of course.

No. 316420

>>316414
Tbh, if he had her on a leash and seems to be aware of the need to exercise her a lot, which could be why he was taking her out, its probably not a big deal. I'm not a complete Stan for pit bulls but they also don't just randomly attack as much as news and this thread would have you believe. They absolutely have more potential for aggression and pit owners that think pits never do wrong or that it isn't concerning that their attacks are a fair bit worse than most dog attacks are honestly the worst. But, overall, like most dogs, it comes down to a variety of factors the biggest being is their owner a piece of shit that's either ignorant or willfully obtuse.

They are pretty great "emotional support" i suppose, i can tell you from experience one reason they get the rep is they attach in an extremely strong bond with whoever raises them from a young age. They start having more problems once they experience the trauma of breaking that bond. Its sad for all pets but some adapt better than others. I found pits and other bully breeds frequently didn't adapt as well to rehoming. Every pit I've met with its original owner that knew how to raise pits was pretty sweet though.

So, i mean, if she is pretty attached and he seems responsible, approach with caution but don't feel paranoid about it.

No. 316421

>>316420
Also sorry i wasn't clear i used to volunteer at a shelter a lot. And since pits are so very high energy and that bond is so intense they frequently suffer separation anxiety, they are commonly given up. Would not adopt one myself despite being one of the volunteers that worked well with them, and can also vouch that other volunteers would push them sometimes and i didn't agree necessarily.

So weird I'm in the dog hating thread i guess but tbh i love the roasting and calling out of the kind of dog people that really piss me off on a very personal level.

We don't give a fuck that you work at a shelter and we certainly also never asked for your knowledge about shitbulls. I couldn't care less about what "trauma" an animals has if that means it unleashes its "energy" at an innocent baby.

Here you have an example of pitbull being sooo attached to his family that he thanked them for raising him by mauling the grandmother to death (in front of her 2-year-old grandson). How sweet. Yet strangely that also happened without it getting "distressed" by ever separating their "bond". Hm.

I come in this thread with reasonable opinions that because I've lived real life outside the internet and moral panic its actually pretty unreasonable to be this stupidly paranoid about one specific breed of dog. Literally said "would not adopt one myself" and that i don't agree they're the perfect dog for just anyone, but here you are, acting like i somehow came in here and personally told you you had to go pet everyone you see?? Lmao. You need to stop being so triggered, for real. I know this is the dog hating thread, but i was actually doing a fucking important thing of trying to help prevent the issue of feral dogs that result from abandonment. Yep, the one i worked for had the community role of dealing with all the dogs people just fuckin dump out in the country. So, you act like I'm some moral fag and horrible stan of dogs you hate, but better be goddamn grateful i was trying to help so that the dumb animals you hate don't become literally untamed and MORE DANGEROUS THAN A TAME PITBULL COULD EVER BE.

I think people like you are ridiculous because I've witnessed the horrors of when these animals no longer have their attachment to humans much if at all. And its terrifying. So your welcome for all the fucking shit i dealt with helping so animals get adopted instead of becoming generations of animals that actually maul people and livestock on the regular.

Go and sue the owner and get the "shitbull" as you put it put down if you ever actually get mauled by one. But my point is that's not actually going to happen probably because you're just being retarded.

Would always advocate for mixes over literally most purebreds…i wouldn't shy away from recommending a pure bred if it was a good fit, but on my personal experience level, yes mixing the bully breeds with something known to be a lot more chill like a lab does a lot of good for the temperament. I'd say if we're talking bout the known aggression and health issues with bullies that's about the best most ethical way to fix it. I am aware of there being a push for this, similar to people starting to regularly mix pugs and beagles so that the breathing problems stop.

On one hand too many damn dogs in the world, stop breeding them, but on the other if they're gonna then better to attempt to suss out better genetic lineages and fix known issues. Its weird that it starts sounding like trying to fix software at that point but… People and their dogs i guess.

I honestly see the argument for cats so much lol. I've never really seen the level of genetic fuckery to that dangerous level a lot with them?? You get a lot of really dumb cats or cats that like to be left alone to a huge degree or ones with really wild health issues…but i can't think of ones that i could compare with issues the likes of bully breeds. If Jackson galaxy taught me anything with his show, its that once you understand cats they are really awesome because most of the issues are 100% easier to fix than 90% of dog issues, lol.

Only about 10% of cats in existence are purebreds, the rest are all mixes. That's why cats usually have less health issues and also are mostly better adjusted.

It's basically the same as how if you had a whole group of people who were just all incest babies and had been for the past hundred years. They'd be fucked up mentally and physically with all sorts of gross health issues and mental illnesses. A lot of purebred dogs are like that.

That kind of fucking story is why you're a huge jackass, thinking your little paranoia born from sensationalist media means a fucking thing to someone who has seen actual, feral, will absolutely maul you animals.

The worst thing that has probably ever happened to you other than filling your head with all these paranoid ideas about specific dogs is someone's dog jumped on you and licked you when you didn't want that. Wow. So tragic. Pardon me for not giving a fuck when i have real issues like preventing rabies outbreaks and having to deal with the potential of actual aggressive abandoned dogs in my area that could hurt my family and i if they are not caught and rehabbed or put down.

Honestly my point was that while you're over probably in a city going "lol moralfag" over someone doing community service, I'm the one actually dealing with dogs highly likely to get aggressive and maul people, dumped by exactly the kinda dumbass "dog people" that live in the city that cause all the problems in this thread. But boohoo shitbulls. Not saying your problems aren't real just that the fact you're so angry about this specifically when i have bigger and more worrisome issues which is one reason i volunteered is really pitiful and sad.

If you want to continue berating me for actually liking dogs enough to work with them and just having an opinion that could be summed up with "lol calm down, having worked with these dogs and seen worse when dogs don't have good attachments to people, i can assure you its not that likely to randomly attack you, just be kind of annoying" then have at it, i guess.

But yeah protip: caution is always good around dogs, phobias are valid, but don't be this asshole, mad every time someone doesn't go into a pants shitting angry panic that certain tame dogs are always going to hurt people just because of the kind of dog they are lol.

No. 316877

I remember a few months ago I was at a convenience store with my mom, and some dude brought a pitbull in that was aggressively jumping around and nipping at the air. The guy had a leash on it (thank god) but what kind of a shit fucking owner allows their pet to be that aggressive. It scared the shit out of me. I don't dislike or have a phobia against all dogs but encountering them in public gives me anxiety. Recently I've been chased on three separate occasions by small dogs and while that isn't too much of a big deal, the thought of getting hunted down by a big dog I may not be able to out-run instantly gets my blood pressure rising. How territorial some dogs can be towards people who are just out and about doesn't help either when the only thing keeping me from being torn apart is a wooden fence or a nylon piece of string. Another time when I was out walking with my mom, a rabid dog was trying to hop over the fence and lunge at us. It couldn't make it, but its head stuck out over the top.
Also when I was like 8 or 9 y/o, my younger cousin and I were playing outside in our backyard when the neighbor's dogs somehow broke through the fence dividing our yards, then killed our cat.

I still like meeting my family and friends' dogs who are more often than not cute and friendly, but I've come to dread encountering random dogs in public. Never know what kind of fuckery can happen in an uncontrolled environment like that.

I can't really blame an animal for doing what animals do, but shit owners and dog zealots really fucking irk me. They're always under heavy amounts of delusional and think their precious angels can do no wrong, even when they prove to be violent and aggressive. Ideally people like that would never be allowed to keep a pet, they're too fucking retarded to properly take care of another living being and ensure the safety of others.

Samefag dogfag that one anon is getting really butthurt about and i understand these issues so very much.

Honestly dealing with the bullshit of dog zealots adopting pooches and then bringing them back because dealing with a traumatized animal spoiler alert takes some extra work and they expected us to deal with all that + train them was infuriating. Its one reason i actually can't do it anymore for my own mental health. The really tragic stuff about ferals and bad cases being the other.

The reason i actually think focusing on "shitbulls" is kinda unfair and dumb is because its actually my opinion dog ownership is that it should be way more regulated in general and dog people and dog haters alike get on my shit for it. Dog haters because they usually want to rage at me for thinking just putting down all the dogs they hate and particularly targeting certain ones when the data doesn't justify the moral panic is unethical. Dog lovers because the idea you should be licensed with a training program to be permitted to own an animal which can literally maim and kill on a regular basis regardless of breed and temperament if its treated wrong or abandoned impinges on "muh freedom."

In general pets should be subject to incredibly stringent breeding and sales practices laws which do not currently exist. The penalty for abandonment of animals (in particular dogs) into fragile ecosystems that can become especially burdensome or dangerous should be penalized financially and socially far more than it is.

I have grown up with both dogs and cats and imho cats are better than dogs because most dog owners don't properly take care of their dogs which leaves shitty dogs.
I get it- we had a german shepherd because that's what my sister wanted and it was mix of happy experiences with her as our family dog but also lot of negative points like I hated taking her out for walks or cleaning up after her. Having a dog would be like if I had a kid, a huge inconvenience in my own life of it needing attention and assistance to go out and shit when I'm out of the house 8-10 hours every day so it would be alone and likely fuck shit up.
Also my mother decided to get ANOTHER dog after our first's passing despite everyone's disapproval. My sister, who did most of the caring for the dog, didn't live there anymore so that dog turned to shit real quick.
Then, when my mother was living alone and had to keep the dog in a cage all day because he destroyed shit, what did she do? Get another dog that was just as poorly trained. So she would have two dogs locked in cages all day and not properly caring for them and let them run around eating everything they found and never taking any responsibility.
tl;dr version dogs are a huge responsibility and commitment that I don't want to do and if you don't fully commit to it you'll have a shit dog

People who are against sterilizing their animals are either horribly ignorant, have dreams of breeding, or in worst cases are possibly sickos.

There is a legitimate complaint that, seeing as tube tying and vasectomy are easier, more affordable, less dangerous procedures, they should be a lot more common. I am aware it is becoming more common for vets to learn those alternatives and recommend them. Personally, I'd give it thought if i had a dog, but mostly to spare the pretty crap recovery of the more intense surgery.

Some common arguments I've come across:
>its immoral to control their pleasure and choice to mate
Lol wat its an animal
>its too cruel/too barbaric
often a cover for "I'm lazy and don't want to deal with recovery or complications"
>i want to breed my dog and keep one puppy so i don't miss it when it dies as much
Somewhat understandable but really irresponsible and they often don't end up choosing to keep the one puppy. Lots of puppy dumps at the shelter were from this context. Seriously don't keep dogs, heck animals in general, if you're not going to be able to cope with their loss.
>i am retarded and believe there is money in breeding my dog
Especially hilarious and sad when their dog is a mutt. What makes me really salty about this is risking the animal's health and well being, cutting corners on the care of the young, and then they end up finding it was either a laughable profit or a loss anyway.

I'm all for the responsible organizations trying to intentionally breed to fix common breed issues and phase out problematic breeds, but no one else really should imo.

Honestly I'm an anon that thinks the pitbull issue is pretty complicated but this is sickening.

I don't like when people get all up in my personal bizz about that opinion, but good god, never would catch me hating on someone that got mauled by a pit and understandably has strong opinions that don't necessarily agree with mine.

What is wrong with rabid dogfags what the fuck.

And regardless of how i feel about it, dangerous dogs need to be put down. Period. End of. Once they've attacked its a liability. I think its rather sad but it blows my mind some animal can be more important to assholes than a suffering child.

Finally able to read this thread,I'm late but this just reminded me when my small toy poodle who was trained to hell still bit me on my lips because it was barking and turned around and attacked me. This was a poodle given to us by a family friend who was well trained by professionals and pampered af. Ive grown up with my parents who got a lot of dog breeds and they were irresponsible af and through the course of growing up with huskies, pitbulls and small dogs like chihuahua and poodles, I've started to dislike dogs. Ive also grown up with cats and tbh they don't attack as much as dogs do and when they do scratch you can defend much easier.
people think that small dogs don't hurt but holy crap that poodle was chunky and 20lb and it still got me good in the face and it took some time to tear him off. He attacked my Lil brother as well multiple times- and my family would defend saying that he's just easily irritable. I rather have cats that can scratch and ran away not FUCKING LATCH ONTO YOU AND TRY TO TEAR YOUR FACE OFF.

When growing up, my family always owned larger dogs. Gladly they were always raised well and I was taught from a young age to always see them as dogs and not some stuffed animal.

I've never been a dog person. But I cannot stand people not training their dogs because they are small.

A friend of mine got a dog last year. It's a Chihuahua mixed with something else and I can't stand it. She put zero effort in training the dog and it's barely potty trained. It keeps jumping and biting you and this is what I hate the most. Small dog owners are the absolute worst. Because what if this was a large dog. Nobody would tolorate that behaviour, but somehow this is cute?!
And everytime I try to bring up his behaviour, it's always the same excuse that he is still young and needs time.
Because of that dog I always try to meet up outside of her house. Because I know she never brings the dog anywhere.

she was a huge bitch about the whole thing and would text me stupid shit about how her dog was so sweet and it wouldn’t hurt a fly

I ended up to moving into my grandmother’s guesthouse and the old roommate moved in with another friend who also had a cat (i guess she wanted to prove me wrong abt her dog?)

the dog ended up killing the other girl’s cat and had to be put down. I haven’t talked to either of them since.

fuck that dog so hard and fuck the owner even more - she was so insistent on being right about her stupid fucking precious doggy that someone else’s pet was viciously maimed to death and then had to be put down anyways cuz she couldn’t be assed to put her ego aside

2 months ago my grandfather's girlfriend's cat was mauled by a dog.
The cat was in the garden, while her grandchildren (aged 2 and 5) were also playing outside. Suddenly a dog jumped over the fence and shook it to death. Their father heard them scream and immediately came running but even though he sat on the dog and hit it with his fists, it did not let the cat go. Meanwhile the owner was only watching and telling the dog to stop. No physical actions.

The best thing about this is, that the dog owner is a hunter and the dog a hunting dog. Not even people who studied animals and the supposedly best trained dogs are any good…

You're not even safe on your own property. The dog could easily have went after the children as well.
It only acted on instinct. And that urge to kill was so string, that it did not even stop when a grown man was physically hurting it.

As compensation for the loss she got 200€. But no further punishment for the hunter for owning a living weapon…

as >>369152 says, even in the best case scenario where the dog is highly trained, they lose their shit, and people need to understand and prepare for that. no dogs should be pets, tbh. cats, very small birds, etc, are a different story. the amount of damage they can reasonably incur by losing their shit is comparatively minimal.

it’s so common that dogs get killed by cats and it makes me so frustrated when pet owners are insistent on having them live together. I’m sure we all know people like this. They’ll have five dogs and three cats - usually in these situations, the cats are all outdoor cats and the dogs are lazy lounge animals who are set off by the mere sight of a whisker.

It bothers me how whenever I try to visit my relatives, their dogs act like complete attention whores and they're allowed to misbehave.

Sometimes a dog just wants to play, understandable, but sometimes I the human would like to visit my relatives without getting jumped on, sneezed on, sniffed at, and barked at by their dogs who can't stand to not be the center of attention for an hour. It's partly due to lack of training. But mostly it's now ingrained in their personalities that all humans have to kowtow to their every whim, and all they have to do is be annoying as fuck until someone caves to get what they want. I'm not even so sure with training they'd be redeemable, they'd go back the second someone enables their misbehavior.

Apparently there's a joke going around that I'm not "friends" with their dogs because I don't suddenly flip switch and act hyper and want to touch their gross, slobbery play toys. I like dogs fine; when they're behaved and I approach them when I want to interact.

Anon, you’re onto something here.

I am a big animal person, I like dogs but find them boring because they’re not mysterious. The thing I love about cats is how they don’t reveal all of their ‘self’ to you. Everything most people dislike about cats - independence, choosiness, aloofness - I love. I like animals that challenge me, and dogs too often are encouraged to be slaves to people.

I also enjoy being around horses a lot, and most people are scared of them because of how big they are, and they get bullied because of it. I guess I’m not interested in having pet slaves, and don’t get a kick out of having absolute authority over animals. They deserve better than what most of us give to them.

This makes a lot of sense.
My dog wasn't neutered for the longest time, at least 3 years, and he was the calmest thing ever. I loved being around him. He was clingy, but not obnoxious.
Now that he's neutered, he's practically magnetized to my hip.
I'll tell him to get off me and he won't budge anymore, he tries to turn into a paperweight. Before, he would listen to me and head over to another couch or his bed or cage and that was it.

Animals are still controlled by their instincts, anon. If they instinctually perceive something as a threat, or as prey, and snap on that basis, you're fucked. Dogs are prone to not being able to stop themselves after the trigger has been identified and eliminated. I said that it's in their nature because chasing and hunting, killing things, watching out for threats, are all literally in their nature. Bringing a newborn around a dog bred for hundreds of years to hunt small prey is very risky. Beyond our molding them to hunt for us, they still instinctually fight off the urge to see us as prey and act on that basis. You're putting a lot on the line by expecting animals to ALWAYS act above instinct. All animals are amazing in their own ways but people need to be careful to not anthropomorphize animals, and especially dogs, to a degree that puts people or smaller or more vulnerable animals in danger

God damnit I never thought I'd see the day. Like minded people.

In my town a man let his pit bulls roam about and they killed this lady's miniature horse and dozens of chickens- people rallied to get the dogs back because "the dog owner loves his pets too"

Sibling has 3 dogs and bought a new house last year. Acts surprised when their 1 year old home is in much worse condition than my 15 year old place. They stank all the time too.

Neighbors let their great Dane run out and shit on our elderly neighbors lawn. One day, being as frail as he is he got up and shoveled it back onto their doorstep. Somehow he's the crazy one.

Niece sells girl scout cookies. I went with her door to door and these peoples dogs burst out as soon as they answered the door. They thought it was cute when the dogs were scratching her, ripping her tights and sniffing up her skirt while she was running away with boxes. They refused to call them back (not like those fuckers are ever actually trained). That's the dog owner mentality.

Friends apartment complex had a neighbor get a dog only to keep it locked up 23 hours a day. Thing was miserable and barked so much it would throw up. No breaks at all. But hey, being a dog owner means putting your own vanity and short term amusement ahead of the dogs unrelenting need for attention and stimulation.

Not to mention how you could buy your dream house only for a dog owner to move in next door: cue endless barking for a decade. Hope you enjoy adjusting your life to their stupid decisions. Tip: earplugs just fall out. A white noise machine helps more

I never understand why people don’t train or play with their dogs more? Like literally just communicate with them, it’s not hard?

Our neighbors have a middle aged Daschund (so?) who they never talk to, play with, and used to let run wild all up and down our cul de sac peeing and pooping in yards and barking at people while struggling to walk with her stubby legs.

I started calling the OC Animal Control on them because we have a lot of people driving crazy fast through our part of the neighborhood hoping to find a thru street to get to the 91 Freeway, and she could easily be run over. She was actually almost hit by a car two times in the past but of course they don’t care. I’ve herded her back into their driveway more than once because she is too slow to run if someone were to come barreling down the street in their BMW trying to get to LA faster.

Plus it’s illegal in CA (or at least the city and county I live in) to have a dog unleashed without a collar/tags and we’ve already gotten on some of the older ladies who stand around and gossip with their Starbucks non-fat lattes while their poodle dogs go poop on the sidewalk…

And of course everytime someone has confronted them about the dog peeing, pooping, running in the street, annoying other dogs and just acting feral, they whine and complain that she’s such an uwu wiener dog, she’s not hurting anyone. Maybe not but she could be eaten by coyotes, mauled by another dog, or become apart of someone’s tire treads.

Now they keep her inside but she has ~separation anxiety~, so whenever the weather is nice and they come home, she’s standing on our side of the fence screeching like she’s being tortured with cattle prods. They’re also mean to her, never talk to her or give her treats, and have left her in the backyard without water when it’s 113F/44C outside. I gave her a bowl of water once because as much as I hate them and how poorly trained she is, it still bothers me to see her suffer because of her owner’s stupidity.

Seriously as a dog loving person this irks me so fucking much. If someone ever adopts a pet, doesn't matter what species, as an owner we have the obligation of understanding their nature and after that redirect behaviors that doesn't translate well to human way of life since we live in a human society. I hate how irresponsable so many dog owners are, and how they excuse their shitty incompetence with "dog's nature".

Narc owners have a special place in my little hating heart. I can't go for a walk in the park with my two pups, without one of those crazy people leaving their "baby" unleashed and pooping all over the grass (who knows what are they eating) when barking to every single thing that moves. That single moment you say anything critical to them they throw a neurotic toddler tantrum fml. Not to mention how likely it is that these people will throw away their dog and get a shiny brand new pup next.

I could go on with crazy pit-owners, pet hoarders and backyard puppy breeders.

I like dogs, I just hate their owners. Most dogs are sweet when properly trained and cared for, most humans are shitty and thus is our problem.

My neighbor across from me "loves animals." She rotated strays in and out of her house since before I was born. She typically has 12 animals at a time in her home; this is illegal in my state without a license. The maximum number of animals is 4. Not only this, every animal needs properly vaccinated and a boatload of other paperwork. She hasn't taken any of them to the vet. For a while, her cats and dogs were breeding since they weren't spayed or neutered. She's had the cops called on her several time over the years and had these pets taken away, but she keeps brining new ones in.

About 3 years ago, we got a new neighbor across from us; shortly after he moved in, there was flooding. We live on a hill, so the rain made a mudslide into his backyard. This guy lives right next door to the 12 pet owner. With the rain wetting the animal poo ridden soil and the heavy wind from the neighboring river blowing, my poor neighbor was hit in the nose with a tidal-wave of literal shit. His house stunk for days. He had to get a hotel because he was puking from how bad the smell was. The yards were tiny. He ended up calling the police on her, were they discovered her poo infested home, with ticks, lice, and fleas that hoped around on the furniture and in the carpets. The law enforcement actually ran outside of the house trying to shake himself off.

I've had other dogfag experiences, just recently I had been jumped on by a large husky from an owner of several dogs, who didn't use a leash. I was hiking nearby my house. This was the same person, it happened twice. I had a Shepard (twice), two different Chihuahuas, and a Lab, run after me when I went for walks because none were on leashes. All of their owners said "sorry" and then let them continue to pester other people that were also walking.

I have a dog, but she will be the last animal I own after she passes.

Glad this threads been revived so I can complain. although I prefer cats I like most dogs, and have one of my own who is peaceful and well behaved. I’ve had some serious issues with other dogs though, mostly because theyve been raised by people who do not have the will/ability to train the dog properly. My nan loves dogs and has always had at least one, although she picks the worst dogs for someone of her age and lack of mobility. As a kid they would bowl me over and I’d be unable to push them off because they’re huge, and all she could do was give them a whack with her walking stick. She’d adopt the rejects from shelters and be forced to put them down a month later because they nearly killed another dog or something. I’m surprised but thankful that I’m not forever traumatised by big dogs because of her.
Another time I was walking my dog, and an old guy was out in the yard gardening with his big dog, probably a mastiff? When I walked past the dog jumped the 1.5 metre fence, pinned my dog and bit her neck. She escaped before any serious harm was done and ran home as I chased after her, but she was bleeding pretty badly and the vet said to watch out. The same dog barks all night too. I’m a heavy sleeper so it doesn’t disturb me too much but it drives my mum nuts. it’s a real shame there’s not enough responsible dog owners out there. Dogs should be spayed and neutered, especially bad breeds, and most old people should not have dogs.

This is true, but it is completely fucked up to ever let your cat outside.
I don't get why people have this different standard for cats, like we seem them as less domesticated or something (maybe because they don't willingly take commands from us, but what "domesticated" farm animal does?) so it's okay for them to just run wild outside or be left alone for days while you're on vacation.

I honestly kind of wish nobody could have pets and I find animal husbandry/having pets in general kind of weird.

Anyone else like the idea of dogs, but just hate the owners?

I love seeing dogs with jobs work. Police dogs, SAR dogs, legitimate service dogs, farm dogs, sled dogs etc. People in Greenland keeps dogs as property and they are chained up outside when they're not used for pulling sleds (there's no roads or train system). They aren't treated as pets. Most modern dogs in the western world are unhappy animals who are owned by yuppies and idiots that don't know how to treat them or give them a job, so they become neurotic and destructive.

A dog in its natural environment doing what it was bred to do is just great though, IMO. Dogs should be regarded as tools first, pets second. Except in the case of tiny dogs who can't like, kill people.

ive always hated that grown up men want little girls to come check out their dogs. somehow it seems like they get off when their dog sexually assaults people by sniffing their crotch in public. at least with a cat you dont have to worry about it trying to smell your crotch. i get anxiety just being in the vicinity of a dog because of the risk of that happening. makes me sick and feel humiliated in public by the hands of someone ive never even met.

it's not a bestiality wank fetish. i don't think that's what she meant. i get what anon is saying. men can emotionally/psychologically 'get off' (not literally orgasm to the thought of it), but feel some sort of satisfaction that our boundaries are violated by their dogs. that is another thing i hate about them. literally they will shove their snouts right up to your crotch so forcefully and won't leave you the fuck alone. i already feel insecure and self conscious enough during my period without a dog trying to sniff my crotch.

yes, i can agree that many men enjoy making women uncomfortable in socially acceptable ways. not the dog's fault they're a nasty creature who likes to sniff ass/genitals, that's just their biology, but a gross man will take full advantage of that

Yes, I've always been weirdly attracted to dog sledding. It's cute seeing the dogs get so excited about running and how it seems to emotionally fulfill them.
>Most modern dogs in the western world are unhappy animals who are owned by yuppies and idiots that don't know how to treat them or give them a job, so they become neurotic and destructive.
Yeah, lots of people who own huskies keep them cooped up in the house all day when they're bred for dog sledding. Then they wonder why the dog gets so aggressive and tears up the house. It should be considered animal abuse to not attend to an animal's needs like that. I feel like people should have to buy a license to own big dogs.

What a horrible nightmare. Those poor neighbors that tried to save her are already traumatized. Fuck this culture of trying to infantilize and downplay the threat these dangerous beasts! If they have the capability to RIP YOUR ARMS OFF and tear off flesh, they should not be a pet!

I saw the dogs and they looked just like boxers. Pitbulls are dangerous but can we drop the whole "no other dog is as dangerous as a pit bull"? Boxers, German shepherds, rotties, chowchows, like, so many big dogs are fucking dangerous. They're dogs, ffs. This is one of the dogs.

My best friend has a large Borzoi that she muzzles when she takes it outside. It's a very gentle dog and doesn't bite, bark or get aggressive or loud at all, but she says the muzzle isn't for the dog, it's for everyone else, so they can feel a bit less worried that it's going to bite them or drool on them or whatever else. I wish all dog owners would adopt this idea.

No. 381842

>>381838
That's exactly right. This type of conscientious dog owner is very rare. My mom owned multiple pitbulls (not at the same time) but ALWAYS muzzled them no matter what, because as much as she loved them and felt they wouldn't do anything dangerous, necessarily, at the end of the day, they're still dogs and she knew when you walk with a large dog you're essentially walking with a large weapon and it's just a huge liability. If you aren't mature enough to know this and aren't aware enough of others or the danger your dog poses, you should completely be disqualified from owning any dog, let alone a large dog

No. 381845

>>381842
small dogs should be muzzled too. i hate people who think they don't have to discipline their dogs just because the dog is a little chihuahua or something. there's a reason why dachshunds are the breed topping the list for most bites every year, and it's because small dog owners think it's fine because the dog is small.

Thank you! Yes! I've said this so many times. They should be! Don't get me wrong, Pitts are super dangerous blah blah blah, but the way people treat small dogs is insane. It's like they're toys. They just don't send people to the hospital as much because they're smaller but chihuahuas top aggressive breed lists constantly. Same with terriers. People ignore the temperament of smaller dogs because they aren't literally as lethal, but they're still dangerous and unpredictable, and losing the tip of my nose from a small dog is still very worrisome!

Totally. My two cents was gonna be that dogs are the best when they're allowed to be dogs. Hunt, explore, play, sniff poop lol

My problem with modern dog culture is the way dogs are romanticized and treated as well, not dogs. Like, no your dog doesn't want a fucking bubble bath, it doesn't want to wear a halloween costume. The way dogs are infantilized and fetishized is fucking gross and creepy. Like seeing those pictures of a dog being shown a steak and people laughing at the stupid face it makes, it reminds me of how people used to treat circus animals.

I feel you, Anon.

Like I have no problem with dogs even though I’m not crazy about them. I grew up with tons of animals so I just see them as they are.

But seriously, when you turn on the news it’s always fucking dogs and kids in some uwu feel good story and people act like if you’re not fawning over someone’s baby - be it human or canine - then you’re this weirdo heartless person and should be quarantined from society.

I don’t know why but I’ve never been on this surrogate pet parent bandwagon autism that’s so rampant nowadays. It’s like a disease. I like dogs for being dogs, like you said. Just like I like cats for being cats. So on and so forth. Half the time I don’t even know why most people get dogs and even cats in some instances as it just feels like they think it’s what expected of them as opposed to they really love the animal and want to care for them.

Yikes, I don't like dogs, but I think he's a little extreme. He keeps repeating how worthless they are. I don't think they're evil and worthless, just, not animals that make good companions on account of the fact that they're dangerous and unpredictable, and obviously the biggest problem is that dog worship is based on narcissism, but this guy really seems to hate dogs.

My neighbors puppy just ran up to me and peed on my leg and shoes. It's a cute puppy, and has run over to greet me before, but never peed on me. Thankfully I just got home, so I was able to change and do my laundry. I didn't say anything to my neighbor. If it happens again I will, but I've had too many neighbors get really weird and hostile if I dare mention something negative about their dog. One couple went from being very sweet to going full on psycho when one of their dogs attacked my family's dog and bit it. They blamed our dog, and threatened us, including to shoot us if we came near their dogs. They ended up destroying both of them soon after that, even though we didn't even take our dog to the vet or anything because it wasn't a bad bite. Another neighbor acted like an asshole letting his dog shit in my yard, even when I asked politely from him not to, and he also let it bark all day everyday. He also got rid of his dog. Don't know if he destroyed it or took it to the pound. I just moved here and don't want to make enemies with my new neighbors. Hopefully it doesn't pee on me again, and I'll never have to mention it.

Dog owners are statistically less likely to pick up after their pet when asked to than when not asked. So mentioning not will probably cause problems and offend them.

If I had a kid and it pissed on someone's shoes not only would I be extremely apologetic I'd offer to replace them. But all logic goes out the window when dogs are involved… You should be fawning over it and your piss shoes.

I only ever asked him once, after ignoring it and picking it up myself multiple times. I only asked when we were both out in our yards and he let his dog run over and poop right next to where I was standing, and he could clearly see me. He was just a lazy asshole. I nicknamed him the garbage neighbor, because he also always let his garbage from his cans blow over into my yard and never cleaned it up. To be fair to my new neighbor, she didn't see that her puppy peed on me. I'm sure she would have apologized, but then again I don't know. She might of just laughed and expected me to laugh it off too. A lot of dog owners are like entitled parents who expect you to just laugh at bad behavior, and can go ballistic if you dare criticize their precious babies.

I have a few dog hate stories. The older I get the more I've come to realize I just do not like dogs, and was only around them because my family had them. My dad got a puppy for his kids a few years ago that quickly grew into the size of a horse, and of course they didn't discipline it, or have room for it, so it would run and jump around their small house all day. It jumped on me when I went over to visit and it's claw scratched my eye. Thankfully it wasn't my eyeball, but just my eyelid that got scratched. They got rid of him after only a few months, and he was put down at the animal shelter they took him to that same day for being too big and hyper.
I got a job at a doggy day care, but quit after one day. You are expected to tear apart the large fighting dogs with your bare hands, and the dogs, mainly the big dogs, would get into fights all day long. Biting and growling at each other, and you just stick your bare hands between them to try to pull them apart from tearing each other apart. The barking was never ending. Piss and shit everywhere. The final straw was when a smaller rat dog jumped up at my face and bit my lip, breaking the skin. There were cameras all over the fucking place so the rich people could tune in to see how their precious dogs where doing, and I don't know how anyone would want to keep their dog there. Or work there for more than one day.
My last story is how I came to be a true dog hater, and not want to ever own one ever again. I was taking care of my grandparents dog, because they hated her kek, so she really became my dog, but i hated her too. Everyone hated her because she was an anxious wreck of a dog, from being a rescue dog who was abused as a puppy. She barked constantly, would piss and even shit on the walls in fear if my dad or any other man, or stranger of either gender came around, she would lick herself constantly, and would tear all of her toys to shreds. I kept her for over 5 years for some reason. I was tempted to get rid of her multiple times, but was talked into keeping her because I was a single woman living by myself and I needed a dog to protect me, even though she was a useless dog who was scared of her own shadow. I finally got rid of her when I left her alone for a couple hours and came home to her having torn apart over ten nice art books I owned that were sitting on the bottom shelf of my bookcase.
Sorry for the novel, but I have no where else to complain about dogs. Dogs are loud, destructive, and can easily be very violet. And I do not miss having them in my life.

Around my area, there seem to be a lot of men into meme dog breeds, especially pugs. Fucking hipsters, I swear. I dated a guy with a pug and I did not find his dog cute at all especially since its breath stank like shit. I kind of judged him for treating his inbred stink beast like his baby even going so far as calling it "my precious baby." He even went on a rant about how he'd even go as far as to kill someone if they ever dare hurt or kill his dumb animal. Oh yeah, it also regularly shat in the house and once accidentally shat on him.
