Eric R Brown

A High School Friend of mine, got married and adopted one. Met it as a puppy for the first time, with bulldog wrinkles. As I had a lot of stress at work, the breed removed it, and made me forget about it. Why I consider them as best companions, despite separation anxiety and teething issues.

Too many reasons. They are the sweetest, most destructive, loving, playful, cuddliest dogs. You have to love one to understand. Just a great breed.


Maybe I’ve experienced the wrong trainer, but out of all the dog breeds I had in the past, this has got to be the yappiest, silliest dog I’ve ever gotten! Not to mention it chews on everything including my piano and the foyer baseboard, it has the worst of manners jumping on new guests and acts completely stupid (like running so fast it didn’t pay attention until it ran into the base of the stairs ending up hurting itself).

I think we might have the same dog as yours. Ours never stops barking, runs around like nothing on earth (often bashing his head on the coffee table). Just wants to play ball (nothing else only ball), which we have now started calling the Orb of power because when you have the ball it’s the only time he will listen!
And where is snoring on this list, that must be worse than the crop dusting.

Maryann Hiser

They are the new Orange, and worth every little exciting, insane moment!

Nicky Robinson

They steal your slippers, your bed, and your heart. Wouldn’t be without my little girl Chibi !
