    Maybe smaller dogs are better for the elderly because they can't pull as hard on a lead etc, but toy dogs live a lot longer, and people tend to ignore their aggressive side because they're 'cute.'

    This is just my experience.

    Spot on Disney. Little Bella (seriously little - 2.8kgs) is mostly a shy sweetie, but put her around other dogs she doesn't know and she gets nervous/excited - cue barking. Now, I realise this is a problem and could lead to a very big problem, so she gets as much socialisation as possible. Most common response I get from other people when she starts barking though? "OHhhhhh isn't that cute... she thinks she big!" Not only that though, when you correct her people think you're a monster for growling at the tiny fluff ball.

    One of the most serious dog injuries I've ever seen was from a toy poodle. But alas, he didn't know any better.
