That's right. According to a new article on the most aggressive dogs, the Dachshund tops the list. If you have a Dachshund for a pet, you may have already suspected this, but people like me had no clue. Second on the list is my favorite dog of all time, those bratty little Chihuahua's. Surely we all know how annoying those pint sized canines can be? They run around yapping and scrapping with the other dogs. I have witnessed first hand how aggressive these can be. They will growl at you in a heartbeat. I use to live with a guy who had one and this little twurp would get ahold of something in his mouth and if I tried to take it from him, he would growl and scare my hand back. They have nerve too. That silly little dog would climb up on me and sit on my chest as if he owned me. I would ask him silly questions like, who do you think you are? He would look at me with his silly looking mug and try to lick my face. On day I gave a Chihuahua some peanut butter, like I had seen someone give a dog on a commercial. I laughed so hard trying to watch that poor little pooch rid his mouth of that gooey stuff. As you can see, I have a love/hate relationship with the Chihuahua breed. But all in all, they are more fun than a barrel of monkeys. So do you own either one of these dogs? Got any horror or funny stories about them?

My mother told me about this articles, as we both have miniature (long haired) dachshunds. Frankly, I don't believe it. Almost every dachshund I've ever met has been friendly, and I've seen a lot - the sole exception being my grandparents last smooth haired - and nowhere near as aggressive as many other smaller breeds of dogs. Even my vet agrees that they're friendly, nice natured dogs. I do wonder whether they are talking about standards, rather than miniatures.

You may be right. Of course, I do not hear much about Dachshunds, positive or negative. I believe that most dogs can become aggressive under the right circumstances, can't they?
