    >hey my girlfriend wants (designer pet).
    Leave them immediately, for they are a stupid c**t with no concept of empathy or responsibility. This is the attitude of a spoiled child and I guarantee no amount of advice or explanation will change her mind on breed or pedigree. You will end up taking care of that dog yourself.

    I've warned so many friends about this shit before. Their dumb c**t live-in gf wants a designer dog that costs thousands and is guaranteed to be inbred, won't be talked out of it, won't even entertain looking at a shelter, and then inevitably neglects the ultra-high-maint dog they demanded until my friend finally realizes what a c**t they are and kicks them out. Hopefully before they get cheated on but not usually.

    Frick I hate people that demand designer dogs. They're living things not toys.

      i demand designer dogs because 40,000 years of domestication has produced some insufferable pathetic disgustng worthless shit eating constantly barking drooling child mauling canine-shaped piles of LITERAL SHIT that even smell like it and all those trash genetics from "dogs" meant to live on a chain and die fighting off a bear or mauling enemy soldiers, other dogs, or hogs absolutely do pollute the "mutts". prolifically. these creatures are so pathetically stupid they will eat themselves to death. do any wild wolves normally die eating a stick or a rock? no. if they did they died before reproducing.

      dogs are garbage.

      if you want them to be less garbage, support "designer dogs" that attempt to filter out some of that 40,000 years of dysgenic trash. or let's just put an end to "dogs" and start over. they're too far gone. use CRISPR to make midget wolves with williams syndrome and never go further, kind of like the canine version of cats.

        What's moronic is how modern breeds ONLY bark. Wolves and primitive dogs have a wide vocal repertoire. They have a "FRICK OFF homosexual" angry bark. They have a less grating "alert, you are too close to my house" bark. They have excited awoowoos, greeting aroos, happy eeeeh eeeeh noises, grumbles, and howls. Only the angry bark is really irritating and it's meant to be.

        And then you spend one day interacting with, for example, a goldendoodle, or a border collie, or whatever. The noise they make for every single thing is the exact same BARK. They're fricking moronic. German shepherds are the worst, they usually only have the angry bark. even when they're playing.

          They have some pretty annoying barks and moronic howls, but hound breeds definitely have a variety of sighs, grunts, misc grumbles, yodels and non-howling awoowoos that kinda sound like they’re mimicking a human voice. Some even do the diva screaming shit a shiba or husky is known for. Even pups from the same litter will sound slightly different from one another.
          I don’t think you can really get more western than the dozens of hound breeds/mixes.

      Spitz dogs like Akitas and Huskys tend to set other dogs off. They're more primative (that's why their personalities tend to be so weird and also why OP is a stupid homosexual for letting his woman even consider an Akita as her first dog) and other dogs notice it.

      don't get an akita because of that video either. a lot of larger spitzes can put pitbulls in their place without necessarily being super aggressive, no need to get an akita for that. a little protectiveness triggered by such an extreme event as an inferior dog attacking is fine.

      notice the pitbull is fine, but shaken and submissive, at the end.
      a lot of better mastiff breeds will also pin pitbulls by their necks, and let them go when they submit without doing any serious damage.

      on the other hand, an undescribed mutation for impulsive aggression is spreading among golden retrievers from too much inbreeding, making them behave like pitbulls and attack and kill other dogs without provocation.

    My mom decided to get one when I was about 12. It was too much for her to handle, Could literally drag me across the ground with a choke collar on and had a huge problem with jumping on people and shoving its paw in peoples faces, or blowing them over like a fricking linebacker so she forced me and my dad to construct a 30' X 40' foot pen outside for it and just kept it out there and passed food through a little door my dad constructed in the fence. It got out a few times and took half the neighborhood to catch the fricking thing because of how fast and strong it was. I literally watched my neighbor try to tackle it only for him to end up riding it like a horse right into traffic and nearly get hit by a car.

    The story does have a happy ending though. Somehow something got in her stupid woman brain and she ended up giving him away to a older man who trains dogs to detect epilepsy and after a few months he messaged us back to say that he was doing better than any other dog he ever had and had already alerted him to a couple of episodes.

        They actually are. The purebred Akita Inu we know today wasn't a thing back then. Purebred dogs in general were a fruity concept. Dogs were bred to their purpose.

        The american akita came from a dogfighting line that contained non-negligible tosa admixture as well as general selection for fighting behaviors, which tends towards giving dogs blockier heads, more splayed out legs, and disgusting looking faces.

        The Japanese Akita AKA the Real Akita came from hunting dogs and family guardians. They are more intelligent and level headed, less dog aggressive, but also more prey driven.

    Tell her to get something else, but if that doesn't work then tell her to adopt an older one - 6+ years old at least. And to do a dog handling course before she even thinks about it. Also if it's a male make sure it's neutered ASAP.
