    An attack is an attack regardless of size. Both should be addressed in the same manner because regardless of breed or size it is unacceptable behavior.

    Would you find it acceptable for a child to hit you? Because its smaller than an adult it doesn't really matter cause the damage won't be the same? I know I wouldn't.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    I'm going to open myself up to abuse here and say that I kind of can understand where Mosh is coming from with this one. The killing an adult scenario is a bit too hard for me to get my head round and I'm not sure I can agree with that. But I've voiced a similar opinion on it being less harmful or important to not train or socialise SWFs than bigger dogs. And got shot down for it too.

    But I would hope that we can all agree that it is ludicrous to conclude from that that all breeds larger than a Spaniel should be banned.

Because THE RISK THAT THE CHIHUAHUA WOULD HARM THE BABY IS AS HIGH AS THE ROTTWEILER.

    The chance of a chihuahua attacking and killing a human capable of defending itself is pretty much 0. And yet there are people saying that an attack by a tiny chihuahua should be treated the same as a rottweiler that has a much greater potential for harm. I am genuinely scratching my head here and trying to figure out the reasoning.
    the end result is the same. What is it about you that makes you deny this?

    Even in the scenario you describe, that the chance of a chihuaha killing an adult is zero, is fallacious. The California Animal control officer who was nearly killed by a chihuaha would no doubt love to dispute your position with you. The only reason she is alive is because her fellow officer was a highly trained first aider who managed to stem the outpouring of her arterial blood till the ambos got there.

    Yes, it's unacceptable but the issue here is risk not acceptability. It's totally disgusting for a chihuahua to be aggressive and it should be dealt with, I'm not disputing that at all.

    This discussion which was interesting before has now completely gone off track and I most strongly object to members trying to intimidate others into leaving because of their different views.

    Hi Beloz,

    There is a saying in dog fighting circles (so I have been told) that it is not the size of the dog in the fight, but the the size of the fight in the dog that should cencern you.

    Likewise, it is not the size of dogs that are bigger than a cocker spaniel that are problems. You must remember 'cocker rage', surely.

    All dog owners have the responsibility to ensure that their dog behaves appropriately. There is nothing too onerous about that, but the responsibility is equal.

    Cheers,

    So if the end result is the same, it makes the two scenarios the same?

    Why don't you email her and ask her?


    lol so you're the forum police now? You're the only person on this thread, no, this entire FORUM who feels the need to use insults and ad hominem attacks, everyone else is able to conduct themselves in a civilized manner. What does that say about you? Why can't you tolerate opposing viewpoints without raging? I won't be intimidated or bullied by your aggressive BS. You can't silence me with abuse. Don't bother replying to me because I'm putting you on ignore rather than wasting any more time with your stupid flaming.

    If the debate can't continue in a civilized manner I will close the thread down.
