Mean small dogs...

Why are small dogs breeds such as Shi-Tzu and Chihuahua's irritable and mean? I have a Chihuahua Shi-Tzu mix and he gets mad at my son just for picking him up. Why is that?

Maybe the owner neglects it. if so, call the local animal shelter

That's What She Said!

I have owned two Shiz tsu's and neither have been mean or irritable.  Currently, my little guy is laying across my lap with my computer.  I think it's just the personality of the dog.  Watching the "Dog Whisperer" might help.

All small dogs are not mean.  I have met many, and have one small chihuahua, that is a sweetheart.  I do know that some shiztsu's have a tendency to get attached to only one person and then get jealous if anyone else gets near them.  Some small dogs also have fear aggression problems depending on how they are raised.  Maybe some socializing or training is needed with your dog.  How old is your son?  Is he a child or adult?

Toy dogs are one person dogs and do not really like everyboby.

How old is your son, you can try to give him some of the dog feeding and such, and maybe the dog will react a little better.

If your son is very young perhaps he is not very gentle and may be hurting the dog, when he picks it up.
