It’s always necessary to consider all the pros and cons before getting a dog. Because despite their cute appearance and small size, some of them can come with some big difficulties. That’s why it’s better to find out about them in advance so you can understand whether you are ready to deal with them or not.
We at Bright Side want to honestly tell you what issues you might encounter if you decide to get a little cute doggy. Perhaps it will help you make a properly-researched decision, as well as help a dog end up with a truly responsible owner.
The Yorkshire Terrier is one of the most popular dog breeds that are comfortable to have in an apartment. They are very playful and mesmerizing to those around them at first glance.
But, unfortunately, this breed has some disadvantages. Yorkshire Terriers are prone to stress, have a tendency to be hypoglycemic, and have fragile bones. Moreover, the fact that their fur is somewhat similar to human hair means that the dog requires frequent bathing and haircuts. Puppies of this breed require even closer care because they can harm their paws when jumping from high furniture.
- The main distinctive feature of these dogs is their fur. It is smooth, silky, and looks like human hair by the structure. Also, it doesn’t have an undercoat. This is both an advantage and a disadvantage. The advantage is that it’s hypoallergenic and almost doesn’t shed. The minus is that it becomes greasy very quickly, and it requires constant brushing and washing with special shampoos. © AsiyaHot / Irecommend.ru
This little doggy looks like a toy and it’s not necessary to walk it every day. They are very clean and can be easily trained to use a litterbox. They are cute, sweet, and lovable pets. They get along well with other breeds and are good for families with kids.
But Shih Tzu get used to people very quickly and they can’t stand loneliness, which can be a big disadvantage for those who are occupied in the office from morning until evening every day. Moreover, you should think ahead about how you are going to walk a dog with white fur during rainy seasons. Will you want to wash not only the dog’s paws but also the whole dog every time you come home? Additionally, you’ll have to cut the fur of this breed frequently so that it looks neat.
- We had some issues with our dog’s fur. Dreads were always there. We tried to comb them out in the winter regularly, but in the spring, when the weather was warmer, we would take the dog to the groomer. © designrooms / Irecommend.ru
