Yeah they are the same thing. I had the same though. Why purchase half of these pets? Just grab a wolf or a fox and boom! Canine Companion.


I saw something on reddit a couple of days ago where a guy had a pet fox. I'll admit it was pretty damn cute. Apparently you can buy them for like 8 grand.

In America?
I think there are limited places. It is hard for me to relate. California doesn't allow you to keep ferrets or gerbils, let alone something like a fox.

Description: Purebread Yorkie, but nicknamed "Teakettle" Yorkie, weighing about 10lbs but not obese or anything. About 2x the size (length and height) of a regular Yorkie overall. Will be 4 in April.
Misceleaneous: When she gets excited, she starts doing a "charge" all around the house. And aside from dinking water and tolerating baths, she avoids water. Going so far as to jump over a small puddle of water that would barely get her feet wet. Thinks everyone that comes around is there to see her (very friendly to people and animals).


never heard of teakettle yorkies. My yorkie totally hates baths but isin't afraid to get his paws wet in the lake to chase ducks. I heard their needyness come from the breed, they are toally dependent on their handlers and want us around all the time. When I leave him alone in the house he spends the entire time literally crying... and like you said super friendly always wants to greet people at the door and get his head rubbed.

Just a nickname for Yorkies that are larger than the "breed standard" of 7lbs and what not. But Niki has never had a problem being left alone. She goes into her kennel wih a milkbone, eats it, and sleeps for however long I'm gone. She's a very laid back dog. Though, when she gets really excited, she tends to pee, generally when seeing someone she hasn't seen for awhile or someone new.

I worked briefly in Norman Wells once. They warned us to keep your lunch locked in a building or something because of the artic foxes. They're about the size of a cat and super cute.

We were on lunch break eating in a building when a pick up truck stopped at the building beside us. He left his window open while he went in. I watched a fox jump through the window grab his lunch bag and jump back out then scamper off like it had just picked up it's bagged lunch. Which it had really, pretty funny to see.

Yeh but for every 10 dog owners like yourself theres 1 idiot who owns a similar dog but is less responsible in their ownership, and for every 10 of those idiots some small kid somewhere gets their face ripped off by a violent dog. Thats how I view the situation.

So while you and your dog are not in anyway directly responsible for any harm, you are contributing to the social acceptance of violent dogs (even if your influence in the scheme of things is tiny). I think violent animals should be highly discouraged at every turn.

Yes its a case of a few bad eggs ruining it for everyone, but too bad. Childrens wellbeing > freedom of choice.

My number one rule about dogs is that they show zero aggression towards children so I can understand your concern. I've actually gotten into arguments in real life concerning this issue when people say "well, you should leave a dog alone when it's eating, blah blah blah". I don't think a dog should EVER growl at a kid.
When I say she is a killing machine, that's just a matter of fact really. She's all muscle and both breeds of which she is mixed are relentless fighters. It did make me proud when she wasted that group of dogs because I admire her strength/bravery and I suppose it appealed to my personal twisted sense of justice. ;)

I had a similar situation at a neighborhood dog park.....long story short, I conclude the majority of the people that hang at these parks are fucking idiots. I sacrificed my body to save MY dog from killing about 12 others that attacked HIM when we were playing ball (I guess he didnt fit in to their established clique....much like me ;o). He bloodied a few of them before I picked him up, myself being bitten and attacked by the swirling mass of "nice" dogs, and ran him to my truck. He did manage to sneak a few more bites from my arms, but I swear to god, every one of those fucking mutts would have been DEAD and I am sure I'd have had a bloody mess of an ALIVE doberman on my hands too.

Every one of thos dog owners simply stood there, mouths agape, watching this go down. EVERY fucking one.....UNbelievable. Went back and had a cathartic screaming fit at those dumbasses for 5 minutes or so....very cleansing....made quite an impression with my (favorite) torn, bloody jeans and tripled blood pressure....lol..I think CC dice were bad that morning..... Anyhow, no more dog parks for me; he can play with my friends dogs from now on ;o(

Oh yeah....my dobies have all LOVED kids....wonderful dogs if they are raised properly ;o)

My son has a 4 foot Ball Python; I had an 8 foot Boa for many years....any other reptile owners here?

It is a little unfair how the "nice" breeds as you put it are allowed to get away with bloody murder while if my dog so much as curls it's lips at another dog people go white as a sheet. If you take temperament into consideration my dog is a million times less likely to start a brawl. I suppose I've just learned to accept it as a cost to owning a more powerful breed/mix (she's a mutt I'll admit).
I've never taken my dog to a dog park as they don't exist around here lol but I can imagine that the regulars there(dogs) would tend to form little "packs" and might gang up on a newbie.
One thing that's interesting though is I have brought my dog over to my parents house a number of times and they have a very ordinary looking and acting black lab female. One day the two of them got into it over who knows what and while my dog probably would have come out ahead in the long run it wasn't because my parent's dog was giving up. Suzie(my dog) had her by the neck but I could just tell by the few moments that went by before I broke it up that my parents dog was in it for the long run. It just goes to show that those "nice" breeds have it in them too.

Yeah, there was a golden, a couple little pocket dogs and a lab in on this. All started by a Boxer that had to be alpha.....stupid. My dog (not fixed, doberman brain) will NOT be beta....as long as no one tries to pull rank on him (or f*ck with his "people"), he's a silly, happy, goofy puppy.

And oh boy, when the Jehovah Witnesses come to the door, I get him wound going "WHO' S THAT?!?!" and acting all worried.....he FREAKS....hold his collar and open the door and announce He's coming outside to potty in 30 seconds...I'd be gone if I were you.....

I can't relate to any of you as I never had any of those breeds. But my opinion is that large and (potentialy) agressive dogs should be discouraged especially in a urban areas. I can see you having one in some type of rural farm house but in the city its just not appropriate not for you or for them. urban houses tend to have less space and more people this increases the potential for hostility as dogs are territorial after all. No matter how docile you think your pit or doberman is they have the potential to tear a kid to shreds in a couple of seconds or as you guys mentioned kill smaller dogs even if its in self defense. I don't think thats a good thing, dogs of today are are meant to be companion and there are dozens of better breeds that make for a better companion. Doberman and Pits are really good at what they do and that is fighting and serving as guard dogs. The agression is in their breed and it can come out for the most unexpected things that you might not notice and at that point it can be too late. So like I stated i see no merit for keeping them as pets especially in a urban environment. in my county pitts are banned and for good reason, not only are most of them used for fighting, pit attacks against humans used to be high.

I don't know krusher. My uncle's doberman was goofier than koolbak's. I suppose there's a chance of a dog snapping or something but the thing is you allways hear about a bad dog. Then when you hear about Funky's dog being well trained you don't even believe him. The reason a dog turns bad is allmost always a bad owner.

I have a hard time being against some of the pitbull bans because there are so many idiots that get them and train them to be mean. Unfourtunately not enough of them have the dog turn on them.

Did you see the video creeper's wiener posted with that lady who let her dog go crazy and bite a guy at the dog park almost in the nuts? I guess it's less dangerous but any breed can be a bad dog. I've seen more aggresive small dogs because people laugh and say, "Oh he's just little." yeah, a little jerk.
