Veterinarians commonly get questions about certain breeds and if their positive and negative characteristics. Is a German shepherd right for me? Is a Yorkshire terrier good with kids? Does the Labrador retriever shed a lot? Does the Beagle bark a lot?
You commonly read breed profiles that give you basic information about the most common breeds – their history, origin, average height and weight but where do you find the “negatives” about a breed? Often, you don’t.
These opinions may not be popular but they are honest. Here is a very honest opinion on each of these breeds based on years of experience.
Again, you may not like what you read if you are a big fan of a particular breed but the opinions are honest. Take a read and see what you think.
We don’t want to discourage anyone from getting a dog – but we want you to know the pros and cons so that you get the right dog for you.
