Pug, Mini Schnauzer, Pomeranian and Other Small Breed Dog Owners Out There..i Got a Question!!?

Ok we have 3 dogs now…one smallish (32lbs) a Med (50lbsish) and a somewhat large (80lbs) dog.. Me and my hubby want to get another…below 25lbs adult size..and I want one of these breeds..I have owned a mini schnauze before and I’ve never had a problem no crabbines or anything. My sister seems to think differently though she thinks they are crabby and mean (all of the breeds I said) so owners what would you say??? Are they moody and crabby and snappy??

It really all depends on how they are raised, and if they are well socialized.

Pugs have TONS of attitude, and they range from completely stuck-up, to i want to lick everyone’s face.

Schnauzers are very social dogs, and normally get along well with other people.

Pomeranian’s in my mind are very ditzy and super friendly.

    My father owned a Pom that was really sweet, she used to fly with him in his plane. I don’t really like pugs b/c they get fat and I’m just not into their look. Two different friends of mine each owner mini schnau and those dogs are hilarious and totally chilled out. They just lounge around. A dog is what you make it, if you want it to be nice it’s not too difficult to make it that way.

    This many dogs will form a pack. Packs respond differently then when you only have one or two, even three dogs. Are you collecting dogs?

    Depends on how they’re trained. Any breed, big or small, can be crabby. This is a decision yoi and hubby get to make. Your sister needs to butt out.

    All dogs are different … I had a Pomeranian and she was not crabby at all … but if the dog grows up being spoiled and not around other dogs then it might be a different story … I would say if you are getting an adult dog get it from someone with other dogs to see how it behaves with them and if it’s a puppy it should be fine since you will be introducing it to your other dogs at an early age. .. just make sure not to treat it "better" than the other dogs so it doesn’t become needy and possessive …

    Hope this helps!

    animals, especially dogs are bad dogs because they have bad owners. If you train a dog appropriately and give them love, you will have no problems.

    An owner of these dogs would give you a diluted view of them. I walk dogs and I often get bit by small dogs and labs. But not all of them are the same. I love poms so I would go with them. But they can be snappy at times. My cousins chases me around and nips me all the time. But its playful because she is a puppy other than that she is sweet.

    Pugs tend to get overweight, and they can’t go jogging with you or anything because their "smushed" faces gives them breathing problems. Because of this, they constantly snort and snore.

    In my experience, Schnauzers have been barky and moody. Also, dogs with "beards" get dirty faces pretty quickly, especially if you feed wet food.

    Poms have a very high energy level, so they can be a handful. They need to be brushed out often due to their fluffy coat.

    With any small breed, you should teach them not to jump on furniture. Jumping on and off furniture all the time causes knee problems.

    I think toy poodles are great because they don’t shed and they are easy to train.
    Dachshunds are another good small breed, but they can be prone to intervertebral disk disease.

    A pug can get up to 40lbs! Or even over that! Pugs make good and cute pets. But they, like every dog, comes with problems. Pugs eyes tend to pop out of there head. Litterely!! And they do quite shed. A lot!! They do eat a whole lot though. Like most dogs they do get caddiracs. Also if you ever try to breed pugs they probably will have to have a C section. Hoped this helped! Thanks for asking!

    Neither of my dogs are crabby or mean, however they have two different personalities. Paisley is a bit of a baby scared of storms, hates getting her paws wet or muddy ect. Rory is not afraid of anything and loves water. They are both extremely loving and mostly want to be next to their people. Paisley will growl or groan if you move her while she is sleeping but this is the only bit of crabbiness you’ll get from them.

    The biggest thing to consider about schnauzers is the attention required. They live to be with people, so therefore they want to go and do everything you do. In my opinion, if your willing to go on daily walks and play for a little while and like a "cuddle buddy" they are the greatest dogs in the world.

    depends on dog and owner
    all dogs need training, socialization, exercise, grooming and vet care
    needs to live in house with family
    needs fenced yard and supervision when out in it

    small dogs can be hurt by bigger dogs just trying to play
    any breed dog can be moody, crabby and snappy.
