Good article--touches on important points. I do believe, that most people, however, don't chose a dog with realistic intentions--they pick one because it is cute, tough, soft, a status symbol, the cool breed right now, etc. Dogs were all bred for a purpose and they need to be able to do the job they were bred to do. They also all need training--at least a puppy class. Classes mainly end up teaching the owner real expectations and an acceptable way to deal with
issues.
Sharon--after losing one Yorkie to your Boxer, why would you even think of getting another? It sounds like you need to have the aggression issue that your Boxer has addressed before it hurts another dog or a human. A trainer can help you do this, and the expense is an investment in your safety and for the dogs own good. An aggressive dog WILL NOT get better without properly addressing the situation. After that is addressed, and only then, would I consider getting another dog. And I'd consider getting something a little closer in size, strength, and personality to your Boxer. A Yorkie just doesn't stand a chance. Yes, different size dogs can get along if they have training and the right personality, but just because it works for some dogs and situations, doesn't mean it always will.

I had 2 dogs a male boxer and a male yorkie. They were best friends but the yorkie tried to eat some of the boxers food and the boxer attacked him. I am looking to get another yorkie and wondered if it would be better for me to get a female. That way I wouldn't have 2 males to compete with each other. Thank you for the advice.

My Garm is perfect for me! I like to pick puppies that are not super hyper but aren't alone in the corner either. A nice calm sumissive dog is perfect.

I have only had 2 toy poodles. I like the breed, they are smart, don't shed, easy to Potty train and loveable. I lost my last one 2 years this month, and I get sad for him still. But have been looking and need one that is cuddlely, Potty trained and easy to care for, groom when needed. Charlie was only 6.5 when he had some type of anemia, one day was fine, next day bleeding from rectum and took to vet, had only 5000 platelets, body eating them somehow, and died during night at vets, Had autopsy and absolutely no blood in body cavities. I never got to say goodbye. Love him still. We lived in apartment complex, everybody loved him and he was always with me.

There is a test on here to see what type of dog you should get and you could probably find the dog you need.
