Worry About/For Other Breeds?
 
I didn't want to hijack the other thread going atm about breeds we all have on our 'someday own' lists, so started this thread.

In reading through everyone's lists I was surprised to see so many list an interest in Siberian Huskies. I love them, but secretly my chest tightens anytime someone mentions wanting one. I worry about that lil sibe puppy because I know the *hades* and terror the average sibe puppy puts owners through and correspondingly just how many of those same puppies wind up on CL, in pounds, etc. --Not that anyone here would necessarily do that--

It got me wondering though, what connections other forum members have to other breeds.

Is there a breed of dog, besides GSDs, you worry about when people mention wanting to adopt it?

Dalmatians and Labs can be crazy pups.

Wonder if anyone has experience with standard poodles. I know someone that used them to hunt and hear they're very intelligent.

I always worry when someone chooses a LGD breed, especially if they are an inexperienced owner. They can be very independent / difficult dogs to handle.

According to many sources the poodles are one the top 5 among the smartest dogs in this world.

A Dogo is the only breed I would be concerned for the average pet owner.

Caucasian shepherd. NOT your first time dog.

Livestock guardian breeds.

I know a few novice dog owners with breeds in this category, and it hasn't ended well for any of them :(

I guess I should have added a, "and why" to that original post. I\'d be interested in hearing why on some of these.

I\'m not particularly familiar with LGDs. Had to google that acronym myself. What is it that makes those breeds so difficult?
