I like dogs but can't have them. We have a cat and we decided that we can't have a dog. But I like dogs, especially small dogs. Our neighbours have a small lap dog, white and curly. I like to tickle her. She is funny and her name is Kilo but she weights much less tan a kilo. I also like pugs they are pretty funny and nice.

I'm an all dog lover especially puppies. I own a black german shepherd and my daughter has a sheltie. They are so funny to watch play. My shepherd is named Noel, and she is 6yrs old. Our sheltie is Alexi and she is less than a year. They play like sisters and fight like ones too. But not enough to draw blood. The people that live around us respect Noel and will stay away from her. Alexi they come right up to and learn to respect her. Small dogs are yappy when they bark and can be just as dangerous as a large dog. Large dogs have stay away barks and can be as a gentle as a small dog. Remember a dog that growls and shows their teeth are more apt to bite.

Yes, they are lovely to watch but if is not your dog - you never know. Dogs can be in a bad mood too. Just like people. Dogs walking by themselves can be dangerous, especially for children.

I totally agree with you. But as a little girl I loved dogs and horses and couldn't stay away from either if I saw them. Stray dogs I loved thankfully I never got bit, I was a very fortunate little girl. This may sound strange but in my own opinion dogs with owners are more apt to bite than stray dogs. Especially if the owner is not around. Just my opinion.

I love big dogs! They are awesome! I love them cause they're cool and huggable and just plain wonderful! If I could have a bid dog, I would so get one right now! Small dogs are alright but I usually don't like them because of all my experience with small dogs, they are kind of yappy and have high squeaky barks which hurt my ears.

well dont really care if they are small or a big one. it just depends on the characteristic of the dog. if had a big one before and now i had small ones. When i was a kid i used to jump on the back of the dog and used it like a horse haha. Well that dog was massive.

I like both, since I am a huge dog lover, but I have a slight preference to big dogs I guess. I would love to have a Great Dane!

I prefer medium to large dogs, not less than 50 pounds. Small dogs have never interested me at all. I like my dogs almost anti-social to outsiders, so they're great protectors, but still want them to feel like babies of the family. I also prefer long-haired dogs. For whatever reason, they just seem softer and more cuddly than a short-haired dog.

I saw a cute middle sized dog a week ago. He or she looked like a fox with the tail that curled.

My chow/australian mutt, Tidbit, is about 55 pounds, she has a tail that curls also. This weight is about perfect, I think... not too large to handle, large enough to get her job done... smiles.

I prefer big dogs over small dogs. They can be more protective, if not at least intimidating to a stranger. I swore I would never own a little dog because I never really cared for them, but last summer my sister gave me a puppy and she said it was a pit bull mixed with bull terrier. Not sure where anyone got an idea that that is what he is but turns out he is some kind of rat terrier mixed with something. hes only 20 lbs! I couldn't believe it. But because I raised him from a puppy I love him, but I will always chose a big dog over a little dog.

I absolutely agree that a big will protect you better than a small one. But things happen.

I prefer having big dogs. I just find big dogs much cuter than the small ones. Big dogs are more cuddly than the small ones. But if someone's gonna give me a small dog that'll be cool. *wink*

I like small dogs because they are really cute and are easy to take care of. I have 2 terriers and 2 brand new baby puppies. They are easy to give baths and don't take much to feed them.

Hi Annamol, I prefer to use small dogs comparing big dogs.Since small dogs will be handy to use.We can maintain them easily.It is difficult to take care about big dogs at some critical situation.You can not lift the big dogs. So i like small dogs only. Cheers, Sakthi

Hi, Sakthi. I agree - it's easier to take care of a small dog. And it's also better to have a small, when you live in a small house because big dogs need more space.
