Pittbull VS Chihuahua! Who Bites?

Pitbull VS Chihuahua! Who Bites?

I am definitely an animal lover. Not an activist or anything, but I have always had some critter running around underfoot. And almost always a dog. With incredible loyalty, unconditional love, and a playful spirit, you just can't top a good faithful dog. All of which perfectly describes the dog you see pictured at right. Let me introduce you to Kicks, my four year old pitbull mix...

OH NO! DID YOU SAY PITBULL!?! Yes, along with the chocolate lab, german shepherd, & boston terrior she also has in her. She is definitely an all out mutt, but that's what makes her unique! We used to joke that if we bred her to a chihuahua we could call the puppies GermanChoclateBoston-BullHuaHuas! Thank goodness she is spayed. My dads chihuahua PeeWee can keep hitting on her all he wants...it ain't gonna happen boy.

DISCLAIMER: Before I go any father, it is not my intent to offend anyone! Many have been bitten and viciously attacked by dogs of all breeds. I totally understand and repect anyones feelings towards any breed. I have always had a dog with some pit mixed into it, but have never owned a full-blooded of anykind. My experience with them has always been good, but i am cautious and respectful whenever introducing Kicks to anyone. (Kicks has never bitten anyone, but she did once scare off a wierd guy who was walking toward me with a butcher knife...good dog!) Personally I just don't prefer any dog small enough to squish if I accidently step on it.

Pittbull VS Chihuahua! Who bites? You almost always hear on the news of larger breeds attacking because they cause more damage and even death. But do small dogs really bite more often? And maybe you never hear about them because no one calls the cops when you get bitten by a teacup chihuahua?

My questions to you are: Have you ever been bitten by a dog? If so what breed was it? Please answer in the comments box. Any extra info is welcome, such as: Did you own it? Do you think you provoked it? Did you report it? Did you go to the Doctor or Emergency Room? Are you scared of dogs today as a result?

Thanks for reading my first Hubpage! Really wanted to write about something I cared about. Hope you can satisfy my curiousity. Follow for future results from this questionaire!

*Two Basic Truths* (1) All dogs bite. (2) Dogs don't make good babysitters.

      Update November 2014 - I haven't been on here in a few years... good to see a pic of Kickapoo's sweet smiling face. She suddenly got very sick this year and we had to have her put down :( she was a very good dog, very loving and very loved. I had a baby in the spring and she got to meet him for a moment carefully. She was very sweet in that moment but I must admit I was slightly relieved at hear passing. Extremely saddened but still relieved that the issue of having a pit bull near a baby never really had to come up. It would have broken my heart both way, had anything ever happened. I'm relieved to not have to constantly be on guard, relieved to not have that constant worry in the back of my mind. But she will be greatly missed. And I'm sorry my youngest son won't have had the joy of knowing her for the good dog she was. My oldes adored her, & she thought he was her puppy! The ChiChihuahua, Pee-wee went to live with a neighbor last year, after my dad died. He rides around with the neighbor all the time in a huge brown van and seems to be enjoying his new life ; ) Kickapoo did have one litter of pups before we had her fixed - three beautiful girls, Helga, Inga, & Olga. Helga and Inga were beautiful and adopted quickly. Olga was just plain Ugly LOL but I loved her. She was spunky. My brother wanted her and he lived with my dad at the time. I offered to pay to have her spayed but my brother declined. So Peewee, the chihuahua finally had someone who gave him the time of day!! Haha and we soon had a true litter of little Chocolate-boston-Bullhuahuas!! Cute little fuzz balls that we easily gave away we people heard what we called them and explained their lineage. I almost wished we had kept one to see how they turned out....almost ;) Missing you Kickapoo...

      Thanks for the welcome, glad you all enjoyed my first hub! Dolores, I agree you should definitely be cautious around any strange dog where you are unsure of how they were raised. The environment they are raised in those first couple years are so important.

      HI and welcome to HubPages! Your dog, being a mutt, is the best kind of dog, with the genetic makeup of several breeds. I can't help but be a bit fearful of pitt bulls, there are so many that have been rescued, but from what? If the early life of the dog was horrible and abuse filled, it makes me leery of its behavior and habits. Interesting first hub.

      I have never been bitten by a dog. Now those temperamental cats are another thing. Great first Hub - welcome to HubPages!

      What a fun hub. Yes, I've been bitten a few times, mainly by puppies who thought I was a chew toy. Nothing serious. I have been nipped by dogs a few times, when I was a child, and got swatted for scaring/annoying the dog. Different breeds, different sizes. As we grew up with dogs, my parents felt I should have known better. No serious bites, no reporting, not afraid of dogs - just careful, lucky, and respectful.
