  1. My 146 pound Newf is timid around little dogs too, and it seems rightfully so. So many seem to have that Napoleon complex and want to take him on. One even nipped him on the nose. He could have ate that little dog for lunch but instead you could tell his feelings were hurt and he just backed away. People seem to think that little dogs with bad behavior are “cute” but if my pitbull did that they’d be hollering “dangerous dog breed”. *sigh*
