Dogs vary in appearance, purpose, and demeanor. Many people want a certain breed, but it's hard work.
They're smart and need a job, so they're fine herding, running agility courses, or competing in obedience. Though tiny, their drive and rage are more dog than most people assume.
The type is kept almost solely for security work, and its drive, ferocity, and aggression make it a bad pet.
These dogs need jobs and will become disruptive and hostile if not engaged.
Patterdale Terriers are more fervent than other pet terriers, making them popular with terrier hunts. They are tiny but bred for work and can be deadly.
Without enough exercise and training, these endurance runners are hard to live with.
Novice owners often end up in the shelter because they got more pup than they wanted.
Dalmatians are gorgeous but hard to manage, and many people don't know how much dog they're getting until it's too late.
The breed is very independent and does not tolerate too much attention, so caution should be taken with children.
