I am thinking about getting a small dog/puppy to keep me company when i'm not doing anything. Amanda and I went and looked at some dogs, and we came to a minor disagreement. This is where you all come in. There was a small chihuahua puppy at the animal shelter. Its the perfect apartment dog, which is why I want to get it. Amanda, on the other hand, says they are mean, loud, and ugly. My question is this: Would you all get a chihuahua if you had the chance? If you could all give an explanation, or tell me anything you know about them, that would be great. Thanks......

I said yes because I live in an apartment and a chihuahua is perfect for a small space. Besides, this chihuahua was awesome. It was about 6 months old, and it came right up to me when we went to the shelter. It was whimpering a little bit, I think it just wanted someone to hold it and play with it. I want it really bad, but nnnnoooooo, "chihuahuas are ugly!" We don't know too much about them, so any info you all have would help my decision process......

:shakeno: WTF BAZ??? It was definitely NOT a minor disagreement.... it was WAY MAJOR! Ok, so what the guy lives in an appartment... there are PLENTY of other "small dogs" that he can get for his "small space" aight? Secondly, the only chihuahuas that I've ever encountered have all been mean @$$ , mo foin', growlin', ugly, rat lookin', gay dog. :tantrum: Besides, he wants a b*tch, and no that's not profanity, he really wants a b*tch aka girl dog for all you dictionary illiterates... why would you want to play with it, cuddle with it, train it, spend any time at all with a thing like that?!?!?! I mean seriously Baz what are you thinking!?!??!?! :yell: Thirdly, I AIN'T moving in with you if you get this beast, so, even though Baz here is ALWAYS turning to his board for help.... I AM BEGGING ALL OF YOU to help me out, and help him out as well, because with a dog like that, he ain't getting ... well nuthing!!!! no pre-grame, no during-game, no post-game action..... HOLY CRAP A CHIHUAHUA WHAT THE CRAP JOSH!!!!!! ok AND it was whimpering... isn't that a SURE sign that the damn thing is going to never shut up!!!! So how come I can't be your b*tch baz???? HUH!!?!?!? SERIOUSLY! my god can't wait to see what circlingwagons has to say about this... PLEASE HELP MEMEM!!!! :cry:

theyre nice, but if you're just looking for a small dog, I'd recomend a mini schauzer (sp) or a jack russel terrior (also sp :D)

them suckers are yappers, and can often have a nasty attitude. We have a Jack Russell, and we love it. Great gaurd dog and loves to play if you egg him on. Only probably is it sheds like a mother. My g'rents have the mini, and its a pretty smart/loyal dog. Kinda yappy as well when company comes over, but calms down once you say "hello". Doesnt shed either, which is a must for any dog I own in the future...I HATE dog hair! (not allergic though) These guys are pretty pricey though if you get a full bred.

JUst my opinion, not sure if its what you were lookin to hear

Depends on what type of action is being done. If you are getting a specific type of action "During the (Heat/Pacers) game" that I was, then you will be missing out on your team. Turns out the HEAT lost that game, and I didnt have any regrets :D

ITs gonna be a lot tougher for my new "friend" to do the same things for me during the dolphins games. She'll have her hands full (literally and figuratively) with trying to get my eyes off the screen.

How about a kitten? :)

I'm sure there is a puppy out there that both of you can agree on. Keep looking

I hate to say it....but you're girlfriend's right. Those dogs yelp at ear-piercing volume and pitch. While it's tough to dislike any animal, those dogs really get on your nerves sometimes.

The key is to find a dog that isn't "yelpey" but doesn't take huge dumps either.

My fiance and I had a great lil shorthaired Jack Russell terrier. So she had a dog named Ike and a fiance named Mike. She's still got the dog, but I'd fight her for him. And Ike always liked me best anyway.

Jack Russell terriers are cool and cute dogs. They're the type of dog most commonly seen in tv commercials due to their general appeal. Make sure you go for a full-sized shorthaired one instead of the little fuzzy dustmop or wire-haired version.

Good luck, amanda. And sorry about not backing ya up, baz, but she's much prettier.

ps -- I'm totally ADHD too. Trying Strattera these days.:D

Someone mentioned a mini-schnauzer before--they're great small dogs. Also, Bichon Frise might look like a foo foo fluffy dog, but they're very nice caring little animals. Great w/ kids/ live a long life and they're small but not tiny, Check this site out for all of your dog info--great site:

Baz, 2 things, first off, get a Ferret instead, they're small easy to take care off, and they're active as hell when ya wanna play with them, and they have small sh*t to take care of

second, start slipping the woman prozac in her drinks, good lord Madden wouldn't be going that off the wall with Favre GHB'd naked on his couch with Viagra in hand :D

I say get the Chihuahua. Saying they are all mean and obnoxious is like saying all Rotties will rip your leg off. Which we know isn't true.
My friend had a chihuahua named Pino, it was the cutest little thing. I loved carrying that doggie around.

BUT remember dogs need CONSTANT care (like walking) and if your not home a lot etc...it may not be the best choice.
Get a cat, they almost take care of themselves.

Nothing yet. Due to my very busy schedule, I don't think I'll be home enough to give it the attention it needs. Plus, I don't want to have an animal stuck in my little apartment all day. He would want to get out and roam around. Once I get into a bigger place, I'll definately get one......
