Well I I love all dogs and know each was bred for thier own reasons but not particularly for reasons I would want to own a dog. This is not to start a pro and con dog war just to see personal prefrences. So whats your least favorite breeds and why.
Boarder collies=Because I do not have the energy to maintain thier endless endurance. Jack Russels because of the same reason. But i do think they are smart and cute. Just not for me!
Blood hounds= Size, skin and Slobber! Plus they have stinky doggy oder no matter how much you wash. Chessies because the dog smell too. But they do have good points ,just not my breeds either.
Any tiny ity bitty toys under 5lbs= Because if i wanted something that small I'd get a hamster. Their too small for my style.
I don't like small dogs. If i wanted something small I would own a cat. Designer dogs, they sometimes are very ugly, and any dogs that eyes are bugged out. That freaks me out. Bull Mastiff because them things are huge and wiegh more than me. My brother in law wants one.
I'd have to say my least favorite would be the Chihuaha. Our very good friend has 2 and I hate going over there, they never stop barking, shaking or nipping. They are the only dogs I've ever been afraid of.
no offence to anyone because i know one that i like, but i really don't like the look of the shih tzus and lhasa apso. i don't really like the flat face and the bulgy eyes. also where i live they are owned by every person....all of the french people have them. but i did know one that was really cute...ugly but cute...i used to call him pompom face. i know that i would like any dog if i knew it but ....not what i look for in a dog.
I think my least favorite breed would have to be the dachshund - the long bodies and short legs and super long noses are not cute at all and they almost always have terrible breath. I also do not like bassett hounds - short legs, long bodies. I guess my least favorite group would be the hounds in general. I also don't like pitt bulls - not because they are known to be dangerous but because I think they are ugly.
On another topic, I think shih tzus and Lhasas are cute little dogs but I hate how most people groom them. It seems like everyone gets the hair on their body shaved and leaves their tail long and head on their head semi-long. It's such an ugly hair cut. Either leave their hair long or if you must go short, at least leave the hair on their body at least an inch long so that they are fluffy.
Even though I like them, they are the sweetest natured and tons of love, I would not want a Saint Bernard. Their mouths are alway wet with slippery slobbers and they have the tendency to smell like slobber. The first thing you want to do after petting one is change your clothes and jump in the shower.
Here to defend the chows!!! :) Chi-Ching is severely offended!!
I think my least favorite breed, is the peke....but not 'pet' pekes, but the show ones, they look so sad to me, they look like they have a hard time breathing and walking and seeing, I like the dogs themselves(personality) but I think the shows pekes are sad looking.
I think my least favorites are little dogs,especially the yappy ones.I also dont like most German Shepherds.I hate how their backs are so angled and how some dog's hock hit each other.Its just not pretty.I also dont really like Collies.I know Im wierd. I just dont liek the skinny face and all the hair.
Sadly,I am starting to dislike cockers now.They are too overbred and I have only met ONe who was affectionate and she was extremely hyper.
I agree with Alicat though! LOL
Chow lover here though! I have had abd experiences with them but more good then bad!
