I love standard Poodles. They're REAL dogs, not those froo-froo yappy things that people think all Poodles are. Smart as a whip, loyal, no shedding, and hypoallergenic to boot.

I love my Dane, but I think the next dog I get will be a standard. No stupid poofy show cuts for my dog though, I'll keep him or her in what's called a puppy or kennel clip.

Were you aware that a team of standards ran in the Iditarod a few years back? They didn't win, but they finished the race. That's hardly what I'd call a froo-froo dog!

The clips that cover the joints were done so to keep the animals joints warm in the cold water, yet less hair for things to stick to and to keep it out of the way. So it has a purpose. But I like the puppy clips as well. I would keep mine in a sporting clip wich is alot like the puppy clip.

So your friend has a pit bull that killed every animal and they didn't put it down? That does not make sense. She must not have had much regard for her other animals or others sefety.

I have often said that if a chiauhahua (sp) wieghed for than 2 pounds they would be illegal. I have never seen dogs with a meaner dispostition than those yappy little things. I wouldn't mind breeding a little pitbull into some stock dog breeds to put a little muscle and size in them.

Pit bulls are greatly misunderstood dogs. They are NOT aggressive unless provoked... gee.. sounds like any other dog to me. Not dominant at all. The ones I know are little wusses! My dog is a Mastiff/Pitt cross and she is the scaredy cat of the household. She wouldn't hurt a fly.

Zeus is terrified of the vaccuum cleaner and he lets the cat beat him up, she smacked him once with her paw (she doesnt have front claws either) and he yipped and ran away. now they play and chase each other around and sleep together on the bed....

now look at that face and ears and tell me how that could be a mean ole bad dog! lol

sorry i got a little carried away there, i love my Poochi

Ok. Here are my pits. And the kitten and cat that beat them up and ran them off the porch. It is all in the raising. They do have a tendency to be dominant, but so do labs, chows, chihuahuas, most dogs out there. I would trust my pits with anyone. (unless you try to hit or hurt anyone)

The only two times I have ever seen my pits act aggressive are when a drunken man came at my step mother and when a black lab attempted to atack kme while I was walking the dogs. My Great Dane is the same way. If my dogs act aggressive all I have to do is yell stop and they stop. It doesn't mean they like you, but they will just come sit in front of me to be sure you're not going to hurt anyone.
