For pet owners, the question “Does your dog dies?” is as inevitable as the next birth. Even with dating, the dating website and eventual marriage of a dog bring with it the same question – “Will your dog live?” While many dog owners would love to believe that their canine companion will forever be a faithful mate, death is always a possibility. If you are dating a dog or considering dating a dog, here are some questions you should ask to be sure you and your companion are on the same page.
What does your dog’s behavior look like? Does it continue to behave as before? If not, there may be a problem. The creator of the website wants people to know, though. Even if the site has expanded beyond its movie and dog-centric purpose, the original one still comes back to the question, does the dog live? But even with the expansion of its, and other, media, dog-killing trigger continues to draw a crowd.
How about mating behavior? While it’s been documented that many dogs do not mate within the first year, some, like the California Lowie, have been known to mate for several years. And while many dogs do not have any effective dominant traits, some can be aggressive towards other dogs, other pets, and even people, making them potentially dangerous to live with.
How about temperament? This question may seem silly, but does the dog in question have any personality at all? Some dog personalities are known to be more dominant than others, while some dog breeds just seem to want to be around everyone. Does your potential new pet exhibit any personality at all, or are you dealing with a passive obedience dog who simply obeys everyone and everything? While a calm, gentle, and non-aggressive breed would be the best choice for pet owners looking for a family companion, the non-active, and hyperactive types are better suited as walkers, or petting pets.
The final consideration when considering whether or not your prospective dog-owner is a good match for your family is whether or not the two dogs will get along. While the relationship between a pet and his/her owner may vary greatly depending on the breed and age, some dogs do well with only one person, while others need a little more room to roam. For example, many golden retrievers, Dobermans, German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Golden Retrievers, Labradors, Spaniels, and Alsatians are considered the “all dog” breeds. They do not socialize well with other pets or children. Some can be wonderful for apartment life, but may have trouble dealing with more family members. It’s important to find out how much room each breed needs before bringing the pet home.
Dogs that have been taught how to behave in the home, go to obedience school, and have received training in how to handle other animals may live up to a century, sometimes longer. Others may barely meet the breed standard and die very quickly. The differences between breeds often show up in how long a dog lives. Does the dog survive? Only you can determine this.
