  1. WOW. that poor dog is sending out all types of appeasement and warning signals. I don’t think I would put my face that close…one day, the dog just may bite. It won’t be so funny then.

    • gotta agree with Trish on this – I feel so bad for little dogs because no one respects their signals, so they have to escalate and escalate then start biting instead of signaling fear or stress. And then not only is it not cute, the poor dog ends up dumped at a shelter, and with a bite history and learned aggression that make it VERY hard to find them a new home. Please, if you really love dogs, learn to understand and respect their communication.

      • Thanks for saying so. We recently rescued a little guy like this on the day he was to be put down who’d been returned once and labeled as an “unpredictable biter”. He was giving off all kinds of stress signals, but I guess because he only weighed 6lbs no one paid attention.He’s a fantastic dog now; he had dental problems that were causing pain and was only trying to protect himself.

  2. Sometimes older dogs are in pain and don’t know how to tell you when something simple like a bath can hurt.

  3. Cute dog, but I have to say I’m totally confused as to why this dog’s aggression/signals are considered cute…

    • I agree…there’s nothing cute about a growling snapping dog – she will get bitten one day. That little dog needs some work and she should read Ian Dunbar’s book on biting.
