+641 The hate towards chihuahuas is not needed. amirite?

by Anonymous 2 months ago

Probably cuz a lot of owners treat them as an accessory and dont train them, because they are "harmless", but their incessant barking (got 3 across the street and you can hear them walking up and down the street like an alarm system) and their bityness and other annoying behaviour is obnoxious, BUT threats or actual violence towards them is insane!!!! That they are the least wanted dog breed sure no problem, i do blame that on terrible chihuahua owners though, but what you described is horrible and unacceptable

I've been around a lot of chihuahuas and pretty much every one was well behaved.

Ah, yes. Your individual experience is a more accurate measurement than the experience of most of humanity with them. Sure. It's not like clinical psychosis is so rampant in them that the rarity is finding one that doesn't have it

I've never met a mean chihuahua IRL, only ever heard about them, and I'm around dogs every day (and don't have any of my own).

My friends have one called jay jay. Cutest sweetest dog ever. So cuddly. Some are uncontrollably yappy. But he wasn't. It all just depends with dogs. Kinda mean spirited to just hate on a breed imo, however.

I've never met a poorly trained Chihuahua, all Chihuahuas I've met were behaving perfectly fine and I have never understood the hate they get. The way people tend to pick and choose which animals they deem worthy of respect and dignity based on arbitrary factors is absolutely ridiculous. Sending much love to your little ones! ❤️

This is just untrue. I worked with dogs for 18 months last year, and chihuahuas are just an aggressive, manic breed. Breed them with something else and they're maybe less so, but you not liking it won't change the fact of what they are.

Pitbull hatred is VERY widespread and accepted, to the point that in some places they get automatically confiscated and killed, so kind of a bad example, and I'm not sure where you were going with that. But I agree that chihuahuas don't deserve the hate. Every chihuahua I've known irl has been a polite well-behaved little dog.

If you think people see chihuahuas and pitbulls in the same light you have been living under a rock.

If you talk to Pit owners, Chihuahuas are the most dangerous dog breed…

It's easy to see they are the result of severe unnatural genetic interference. No real dog would ever survive if it was that small and annoying. So it's basically another cruel science experiment for people to have a cute pet that fits in a handbag, but the poor things are probably really suffering inside.

Chihuahuas weren't bred to be cute. They were bred to be food. For people.

by Anonymous 2 months ago

In that case, that's basically like keeping a farm animal as a pet. I'm aware it happens. It's not normal, not that I'm any judge of normalcy.

I love Chihuahuas. I've met some VERY poorly behaved ones but honestly I don't blame them, if I were treated like a yappy stuffed animal or purse accessory I would start biting too. The ones that were given actual dignity have always been goofy, affectionate little creatures with maybe two brain cells but lots and lots of love (and farts)

Neither is the hate for pitbulls or any other dog for that matter.

by Anonymous 2 months ago

Pitbulls kill and maim people and other dogs at an alarming rate. All it takes is a quick google search to find several that have occurred in just the last month. There is a reason for the hate.

by Anonymous 2 months ago

They are also overly blamed. I've seen cops call bulldogs and labs pitbulls. And that's also been well documented and with a quick search of your own. I've owned the breed throughout my life and find them to be just big love bugs. There are no bad dog breeds. Just bad people.

So I worked in a vet clinic for a few years. The meanest dogs were the smaller breeds. The derpiest were the bigger breeds and the lovebugs were the middle sized breed which ended up being pitties. We all had been bitten by the chihuahuas and Pomeranians. Rarely ever even growled at by the bigger dogs. I would also never threaten to harm a dog just based on breed unless that dog attacked first.

I love my half dachshund half chihuahua- she barks at other dogs on walks, and a little bit at the doorbell, but that's about it.

This is not about Chihuahuas. This is about some crazy people. I've had chis my whole life and only ever had people show them love.

So because it's just a little bite, it's okay? They're unpleasant, they do bite, and I would rather be without a dog at all than with one. And bringing up pit bulls to somehow make it better is like saying that you only shot someone with a 22, good thing it wasn't a shotgun. Ridiculous. And I do not have a pit bull, although every one I met was sweet and affectionate. Have a black mouth cur, and an English mastiff.

The same type of people who cry when you stereotype pit bulls will stereotype chihuahuas. I'm not saying you should do either though. As the pit bull people say, "No bad dogs, just bad owners." Don't be a hypocrite. Either you believe in that or you don't.

Wait, did I understand that right that you called the police on a guy who asked you to get off his lawn and threatened to shoot you with a paintball gun? If he did what you said, then that is a crazy thing for him to do and he's probably a bit loony, but is the appropriate response to get the law involved instead of just getting away from his property?

i feel like a lot of people dont think their chihuahuas need behavioral training since theyre so small. yeah, they can be little turds but one from a good home that's well adjusted? those are buddies for sure

by Anonymous 2 months ago

I don't hate chihuahuas, but they have almost all be over bred into neurotic messes. So, out of the many dozens I've met, I've met a single one that was actually somewhat stable, mentally. Keep in mind too, if a chihuahua was the size of a pit bull, they'd be far more dangerous. That said, let's start pushing for people to properly breed these dogs into a dog that can be better again.

Never met a chihuahua that didn't bite leg, hump my foot are snap at me.

They say that chihuahuas are the least tolerant breed because the owners think that small dogs cant do much damage so they dont train them and/or dont train them very well.
