Finnish Spitz

Short title: 
finnish spitz

The Finish Spitz is the national dog of Finland. Finnish Spitz have an unusual hunting style - they'll flush a grouse into a tree, flick their tails repeatedly and alert their owners with a high-pitched bark.

Finnish Spitz look and act a lot like foxes. They're hardy, independent and need daily exercise. They're usually suspicious of strangers and sometimes aggressive with other dogs.

Once you get to know him, the Finnish Spitz is playful and clownish, actively seeking attention and interaction. Loyalty and bravery are two of his trademarks, and when he is bonded with his family, there is little that can come between them. To this end, he can be protective and reserved with strangers. Socialization from a young age helps take the edge off, but this is just the way he is. This does not mean that he is shy or spooky; rather, he holds off on being overly emotive until he feels comfortable.

Dalmatians are sometimes so playful they're high-strung. They need vigorous daily exercise or they'll become very destructive.

Males will roam if they're not fenced in.

Chinese Shar-Pei

Short title: 
chinese shar-pei

The Chinese Shar-Pei is a non-sporting dog. Shar-Peis are dignified dogs that are very clean. They adapt well to city life if walked daily. Some are unaffectionate, but others are lovable. They're suspicious of strangers and aggressive with other animals. Shar-Peis are usually good with children.

One look at a Shar-Pei puppy, with his hippopotamus-like face, tiny ears, and abundant wrinkles, is usually all it takes to fall in love with this breed. Prospective owners must keep the guard-dog component of his heritage in mind, however, and properly socialize him. Calm, steady, and dignified but alert, the breed's first instinct toward outsiders is suspicion, so it may be somewhat reserved with strangers. Although he is independent and aloof by nature, the Shar-Pei is very devoted and loyal to family members once he has learned to trust and respect them.


Short title:

He is extremely affectionate with his family and craves its affection and attention. He may weigh 50 pounds (23 kg), but he considers himself a lapdog. The Bulldog wants to make those around him happy - and usually succeeds!
