All I know is when we were camping this summer my Mom's friend's 2 year old kept jabbing her pit bull in the eyes. Dog didn't do anything but move away. If he even tried to pick up the chihuahua, it nipped at his face. Little dogs are like cats, spoiled and entitled. But like I firmly believe, all dogs can be good and all dogs can be bad. People who don't know how to bring up a pet properly and know how to discipline an animal as well as love it and give it praise shouldn't have a pet.
