There are good dogs of every breed, but are you still prejudiced?
I took my dog to the park Sunday. She initially tried to play with a dog (fox terrier maybe?) she met there, but then became scared (not sure why exactly, I didn't see him DO anything other than bark, but she was definitely afraid of him).
Went back yesterday. She saw another dog there (a completely different dog than before), put her tail between her legs and tried to run back to the parking lot. She has always loved playing with other dogs, so I really hated to see this!
The other dog was playing ball with his owner, and appeared to be very well-behaved, so I brought my dog over and asked the owner if his dog was friendly. So the two dogs played, and all went well, but the owner said that his dog, being a pit bull, didn't have many opportunities to interact with other dogs, because people tended to steer clear of them.
I have to admit, I didn't really think about what kind of dog it was when I went over, and I was sort of uneasy after his owner mentioned it. Is that completely irrational? Can you form an opinion of a dog solely on the way he acts, or should breed be a factor at all?
My dog really did have a good time, though!
