Affenpinschers are not the best choice for small children

Affenpinschers are adorable, small dogs and it would be tempting to introduce one into your family as a pet for your young children. Unfortunately, these dogs are not a wise choice for the youngest of family members. In this article, we'll look at a few reasons why the Affenpinscher is not suitable for families with very small children. [...]

Say goodbye to dog hair allergies with Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers

There is nothing worse than purchasing a new family pet, just to learn that someone in your home is allergic to the animal and you must take it back to the breeder. This is much less likely to happen with a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier because they have hair, rather than the fur coats of most dogs. [...]

Bullmastiffs and Lawsuits

Every year more lawsuits are initiated against large and giant breed dogs such as German Shepherds, Dobermans, Pit Bulls, and the Bullmastiffs. Many of these lawsuits are against the dog because of a dog bite or attack on a person, or something similar. In other cases, there is some little infraction that would have gone unnoticed had it involved a smaller and less notorious breed of dog. [...]

Oh Those Pretty Baby Blues

Many breeds of dogs have brown, hazel or even yellow eyes, but there are also some breeds that are more prone to blue eyes, commonly referred to as glass eyes. The breeds most commonly associated with glass eyes include Australian Shepherds, Blue Heelers, Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldogs, Catahoulas, Siberian Huskies, Corgies, Dachshunds and Shetland Sheepdogs. Any other dog breed could potentially have a blue eye or glass eye, but in many breeds the rare blue color is considered a disqualification in the show ring, but does not mean that the dog cannot be registered. Glass eyes do not indicate damage to the eye and there is no indication that the dog is not able to see equally well through any colored eye, despite many myths to the contrary. There is no breed standard that only allows for blue eyes, but it is favored in many of the breeds by breeders looking for flash in their breeding line. [...]

Is the American Staffordshire Terrier an Aggressive Dog?

Not many breeds have to deal with the stigma that surrounds the American Staffordshire Terrier. These dogs are put into a vague category called pit bull dogs and stories abound of their extremely aggressive behavior. As with many stories, however, it seems as if the media is involved in hyping up the Amstaffs aggressive tendencies based on a few isolated instances that were the result of very poor dog ownership practices. But is the Amstaff really that aggressive? [...]
