No. I would not let my husband have a breed that I couldn't stand. And I WILL use the word "let", because I am the Dog Boss in the household and he knows it.
However, my husband has a thing for Basset Hounds. I told him that was a breed I never want in my house, and why (health problems, attitude problems, drool, etc). He still thought they were great. I said, that's because you've never lived with one. He didn't believe me.
So, just to prove a point, I said, "okay, just to show you what I'm talking about, let's foster a Basset Hound for a while and you'll see!"
So I contacted a rescue org and, sure enough, they had a Basset that needed fostering. This dog was owned by an elderly couple and he had been walking all over them and starting to act aggressive. When the dog was ON the dinner table on Thanksgiving day, and attempted to bite the owners' son when he tried to remove him, it was the last straw and the dog came into rescue.
This dog was about a year old, thankfully had been neutered, and was a drooling, snapping basket case when I received him. He did all the nasty Basset things; baying, resource guarding, biting, fighting like a marlin on a line when getting his nails done, the usual.
DH loved him.
We were able to get him socialized and trained to a certain degree, got him to accept his nails done, to stop resource guarding, and to stop biting every time he was in conflict. He did help herd my chickens, and was awfully cute when running at full speed in tall grass. I think we had him for three months or so, then he was successfully adopted out to a big guy who had always wanted a Basset, and didn't care about the history of biting. "Aw, he's a little nipper, eh? Heh heh heh!"
After it was all said and done, I said smugly "Now see how awful that was? THAT is why you don't want a Basset Hound!"
But my plan backfired.
DH loved the dang dog, and now he wants one more than ever.
However, he deigns to my leadership as Dog Boss. Since I am basically the one who does all the research, selection, care, feeding, exercising, training, etc. with the dogs, and all he does is cuddle up with them on the couch at the end of the day, he can pretty much take any dog I bring in.
This isn't an unequal relationship. He is the Car Boss, the Gardening Boss, the Beer Boss and the Boss of Heavy Lifting and Anything Mechanical. If I wanted, say, an old Fiat to drive around, he would veto that decision based on his knowledge and experience with cars, and the fact that he will be doing all the repairs and maintenace. I trust and respect that, and when we were looking for a new vehicle, I brought all the cars I liked to his attention and he made the final decision.
