Wiener dogs are a great pet, however they do not do well with very small children and are prone to anxiety problems! But we love our denali.

    We also have a little wiener girl, Norma Jean. She has very bad anxiety when I have to leave without her. We are very close and she burrows down in the front of my night shirt to sleep. But I would not trade her for any other dog in the world. She is my heart.

    I have a mini dachsy/jack russell terrier mix, I've also noticed that she doesn't like kids either, everytime she sees a kid, she starts growling and running back and forth. I will go to her level and talk to her, letting her know that they won't hurt her, but she doesn't trust them at all, so I end up picking her up to calm her down and talking to her, once she calms down, then she okay after that.

    Ottis is our mini and he is great with our kids we have had him for three years and have a 2 and 5 year old. He Would do anything to protect them and would never hurt them. He does have issues with barking and settling down. When you pet him he can't get enough almost to the point where you don't want to because he won't calm down.

I own 3 GSP's and plan on owning them the rest of my life! They are incredible dogs, very intelligent, loving and eager to please. They DO need exercise, but are easily trained provided you keep their attention. They REQUIRE human companionship, do NOT leave this dog outside by himself!

My four year old son is obsessed with the cartoon Scooby-Doo, so my husband and I were going to look for him a great dane for christmas when one of our friends called us and said that they had found a dog wandering their street. We went out and looked at him and it was a 10 month old daniff puppy, naturally our son fell in love with him and named him Scooby-Doo...we have had him for almost a year now and he is like my son. We have two kids a 4 yr old and a 2 yr old, and they absolutely love him to death. He is so much a part of our family, we couldn't have asked for a better dog. He is so gentle and so protective of the family. He is just a wonderful breed. I don't have to worry about the kids when they are outside b/c Scooby doesn't let anyone he doesn't know near the kids and he keeps an eye on them. I would strongly suggest to any family that a daniff is 100% a perfect family dog. You will not make a mistake going with this breed!

I would recommend the rough collie as a great family dog. Here in Scotland our rough collie males are on average 24 inches at the shoulder. Our dog Elvis is the sweetest natured dog you can imagine and we love him to bits. He is also a very beautiful sable and white dog.

    Sounds like you love your puppy. Of course, I would love any puppy named Elvis. He has to be my favorite. Seriously, I love the collies.

Our pet name is biscuit. He thinks he's a cat. You will always see a sock in his mouth. He is likely to be seen twirling the sock while on his back. He loves to box my husband while playing. He's a sweetie.

But what about life spans for Schnoodles? And what health issues have people encountered? I'm considering a Schnoodle after having had Schnauzers the past 20 years and dealing with Cushings, diabetes and cancer with them once they reached 10 yrs. old.

    The life span for a Snoodle is said to be around 14 years old. Per the Animal World article above some health concerns are for the eyes and epilepsy.

    I have a shiba inu terrier mix, and she is very sweet and affectionate. Even though she is mixed with terrier, she favors a shiba inu as far as coloring and personality.

Tiny is an adorable little brat! He's only 4 1/2 months old and has learned sit, stay, come, down, rollover, drop it, potty, and no. He's already 8lbs of rowdy fun, and I've a few questions about other training stuff. I've an almost 5yr old granddaughter, and the two of them are always just bugging the fire outta one another. If it were not so constant, it might be cute. It's really like babysitting two very jealous little kids. Tiny is jumping/nipping my granddaughter. However playful and attention getting the behavior is, it's painful to her and she reacts by swinging/swatting back at him. She, in turn, will pick him up when he's resting, and he reacts by growling or snapping at her. His is a 'shot across the bow' and he's never bit her angrily. I am concerned that he really might bite her badly, or she might injure his legs and/or back. Other than kenneling him most of the day - as much for his protection as hers - I don't know what to do. I'm frustrated by the whole situation because I love and can see wonderful potentials for them both. Honestly, I really need help on this one. I'm kinda at my wit's end. Any solutions?
