Chihuahua With Attitude

I don’t know why, but there are many Chihuahuas with attitude problems.

It could be the owners, it could be the genetics, but hospital records show that there are more dog bites from Chihuahuas than from any other breed, and that’s including Pitbulls and Huskies…

I have my own theory, totally based on anecdotal evidence. People expect large dogs to be well behaved and be trained. The same people think “What a cute Chihuahua…” and since it’s so small… The Chihuahua doesn’t get trained or more likely, the Chihuahua trains the owner and try to train everybody else. That’s where most of the problems come from.

When I look at this photograph, I see:

Robert De Niro saying “You talkin’ to me?” from the 1976 Martin Scorsese’s movie: Taxi Driver.

Chihuahuas get excited quite fast and that’s when problems occur.
