Puppy daycares and training groups have helped a lot with socializing. The other dogs let her know that not all dogs are bad and that their owners aren’t either. But if I tell her “get em bit” she will get all sorts of protective and mad. I was looking in my pictures and I had to add a few of them to this. Chihuahuas are one of the most loving and happiest breeds I have owned. I think the pictures will show exactly that. Little has a new human now (well since March) and she absolutely LOVES my boyfriend. She will pout and whimper if he doesn’t her bye in the mornings and she is super protective of him as well. I definitely would say that they are either Dachshunds, or Dachshund mixes. They are very cute. Keep in mind, that dachshund type dogs need to be handled very carefully with regard to their long body. I’ve seen many a dog which had to have spinal surgery. People have a tendency to pick them up wrong, without supporting their back. Also, it is crucial to not let them get overweight, because that puts undue pressure on their very long body causing back stress and later health issues.
Say hello to the smiling Sammy, the dog that (no kidding) usually has a smiling expression on their face! It is seriously adorable and has a knack for cheering me up in a snap. In my experience, I would consider Sammies the most affectionate of these three breeds. They are also the barker of the three — which isn’t a bad thing if you expect your dog to double as neighborhood watch. Samoyeds come is solid variations of white and typically have brown eyes. Ah, the husky…the only breed of the three where blues eyes are common and allowed per the breed standards. My current husky has two blue eyes, while other huskies have heterochromia (two different colored eyes). Huskies also don’t tend to bark but love to talk with “woos” and howls like the Mal. I would consider huskies the more aloof and stubborn of the three breeds. They are also the most bouncy and out-going. Huskies may not be the best breed for small children (though some are fantastic), my current pup was adopted and returned for plowing down and running over their kids–luckily I don’t have human monsters so he fits with us like a charm. The leopard even could have been already injuired, sick or young, I don’t think that would have made a big difference if it was to still fight them but a normal leopard would have fleed if it saw 2 dogs and a couple humans rushing it.
