I have noticed that dogs no longer represent a symbol â€“ a man’s best friend, but a very trendy accessory. Television shows, publicity and media play a very important role on this new trend. The worst part is that many trendy dogs do not necessarily enjoy a good life. They are simply put inside luxury bags by ladies and carried around in all kinds of ridiculous and uncomfortable clothes. They only touch the ground indoors though.
I have always thought that â€œ101 Dalmatiansâ€ was the most important ad for that breed. Today, I believe that the same issue happens with small and fluffy dogs as well, especially when it comes to chihuahuas. The smaller they are, the better they are. They look very nice and fluffy when you watch them into those small round eyes. They are also funny when they barely move their fragile feet. However, the demand for such breeds has skyrocketed over the past few years, mostly because of Paris Hilton or â€œBeverly Hills Chihuahuaâ€.
Sadly enough, what most owners fail to understand is the fact that such dogs are actual beings and must be treated accordingly. They have four feet, they need to use for running or moving. Otherwise, their muscles can be drastically affected, not to mention about their joints or skeletal system. Although they are fairly small, they have similar needs too. They want to play around, be active, run and jump. They are very active and this necessity must be understood and respected. Without these things, life goes by without offering them any happiness because they spend a lot of time in a luxury bag. They are taken for accessories and bag annexes. Their eyes are sad and tell a story, yet a lot of artificial celebrities and average people fail to listen to it.
Buying a tiny dog breed
In order to decide if you need a tiny dog breed, you are supposed to take a look at your lifestyle and understand your needs too. A dog is like a baby, so it requires plenty of attention and love. If you barely have time for yourself, getting a dog is the worst idea in the world. I have managed to understand that puppies need at least as much attention as large dogs. Besides, an appropriate behavior is the optimal and basic condition for the well being of your friend. Try to find out upfront what the race might be appropriate for you. Although there are several tiny dog breeds that are very popular, I have seen a wide variety of breeds and each of them has specific particularities. Moreover, find out what having a pet actually implies and what your responsibilities are.
As if all these were not enough, tiny dogs have different personalities, depending on the breed. This aspect is even more important than the actual appearance. Each breed has its own character. Some dogs are very stubborn, while others are quite active or just lazy. Plus, not all of them are recommended to families with babies or kids.
