Have an opinion?
Depends on the dog. If the dog is barking and growling at me like it wants to kill me and also has the body of a fucking bear/wolf hybrid... Then yeah ima be a little scared :')If I saw dogs like these not on a leash, I'd shit my pants 👌https://youtu.be/AYIUVjitIpg
On the whole, no, as I really do love dogs but I will admit to being intimidated by certain breeds such as pitbull and rottweiler. One of my friends has a pitbull and he is adorable and very loving but sometimes I do find them a little bit scary.
When i was baby my Mom was walking me in the parkwell this dog was off it's leash and it jumped on mybaby stroller well that left me with fear of dogs i getscared that they will bite cause i have diabetes andif they bite me i can get infection so i am leery of these dogs who are off their leash up where i live.
I used to be scared of dogs because of an incident that happened when I was two years of age but now I love dogs. My husband actually helped me to no longer be scared of them and we’ve decided to get a cockapoo as our family dog.
Not as much anymore. As a kid I was terrified of all dogs (after being jumped on and barked at I was traumatized). Now I'm just uncomfortable around small dogs but not scared of them. I'm still scared of any dog that looks big enough to knock me over
Scared isn't the right word. Im more appalled by small dogs. Theyre so aggressive for no reason and almost always try to bite random people. Nothing against people that get small dogs, but I just can't stand them. Big dogs are always so much nicer.
I just do not assume that all dogs are friendly and let them approach me, most of the people who get bitten approach the dog without finding out if the dog is friendly/aggressive.
I love dogs, they give me life honestly. If you can't trust nobody else. You can trust your dog tbh. Well if you're good to your dog anyway.
Our dog went through a lot.. my brother when I was very young stepped on him during the night despite the whole family knowing that benson sleeps at the bottom of the stairs. He also poured boiling hot water on benson because he was "looking at him funny" I was too young to understand, and my mum just told me ben is poorly. It breaks my heart, even when my brother did that all he did was yelp he didn't bark and such. It fucking breaks my heart, as they will always trust you and love you even if you treat them like that... I hate my brother for that.Sadly, mum put benson down as my brother wouldve carried on and she struggled to pay for her own food, in the start he had an amazing life until my brother turned nasty, frequent walks my dad loved him, always on holiday with us and with us as little babies and protective, fed well kept healthy.I wish he wasn't put down, I wish mum let him go to another family.She told me about how she held him in her arms while he slowly stopped taking in air, it breaks my heart.
He was a choc lab.
I’m not, though apparently as a kid I was because I cried in a corner because of a Dalmatian puppy. (I wasn’t a tough kid okay). I love dogs now, and only if they are being aggressive like growling so I get a little scared.
Definitely just look into his eyes he has a absolute need for blood shed
Aww! I mean- He looks like a viscious monster!
Yeah he's so viscous he stole a chicken nugget from my nephews dinner last night
I love dogs, especially big ones but I'm afraid of chihuahuas 😅 those ugly little rats...
HAHA I feel the same way, Im not afraid of chihuahuas but damn they are ugly rats xD
In general, nope, not at all. I have two Great Danes now and grew up with dogs constantly around.Around-ish where I live, there are times where some temperamental dogs roam the neighborhood, but I find that if you stand your ground (i.e. standing wide, slightly leaned forward) and of intimidate them (sometimes yelling at them), they back off and leave you alone. Those dogs are usually on alert rather than out to attack though.If a dog is truly out for blood, a small breed like a yorkie won't phase me, but I sure ain't sticking around if it's a German Shepherd or larger. If my dog for instance (currently weighing at around 110-120 lbs I think) went crazy and wanted to kill, hell yeah, that'd be pretty friggin scary. I'll take a hard pass on starring in Cujo: The Sequel.
I love animals, especially dogs and cats.Dogs can feel that, so most dogs come to me for a pat, scratch and even a belly rub.Most times that I go to bed my two rescue dogs are on the bed before me, then snuggle against me.I have what is described as a way with animals.Most of the wild animals with whom I share my rural property will eat from my hands.
I have been bitten once as a child by a white dog, similar to the one in the picture showing the teeth.Anyway, I believe having pets at home is a total nonsense and the world would certainly be a much better place if most of the people would not have pets.But that is not the topic of the question.Yes I am scared of certain dogs and I always take my mace out of my pocket when I cross the path of a stray dog or a dog that is not on the leash and even when on a long leash, regardless of the size or color.I would not hesitate to use my mace if a dog came too close and wanted to have a whiff of me.Better safe than sorry!
Nope. I grew up with a lot of dogs and love em all.
Oh my god!!! Yessss!!! I freaking hate dogs! I never liked them and will never do! They scare the crap out of me. Big ones or small ones doesn’t really matter. I’m afraid of all of them
When I was 6 or 7 I was, but when I got my dog peanut butter I started loving all dogs, most are good natured, just some have been through rough times.
Until last year I was sort of scared with dogs but then our family wanted a dog and I accepted and I accustomed to it and now even big dogs don't scare me.
Certain dogs. Most of the time no, but if the dog in question is aggressive or seems angry, I get scared
I love dogs more than people.I can't stand people who don't like dogs.
Pro tip: If you ever get attacked by a dog snap its tail in half, it is the part of their spine and will make them stop attacking you in an instant.
Noooo dogs are so cute I don’t think I could ever be scared... well unless they’re raised to be killers and eat human flesh but that’s just in movies
Errr no it isn't. Those dogs exist
It was just a piss poor joke I was making
But I’m not scared of dogs really
Nooo nooo it wasn't that bad 🤥 Me neither and...by the way you still have a great name 😄
lol thanks you too
I have six and was raised with them so will stop in middle of anything if a dog walks past to 'awe' at it
Dogs are great, nothing to fear. When you don’t show them fear, they back off.
I'm generally very comfortable with dogs but I recognise a large aggressive dog may be dangerous so I give them the respect they deserve
I love dogs. I have a German shepherd and he’s 2 years old. Adorable!
No way. I love them. I had a Doberman, and two of my exes had a dog. One was a pug and the other I think was a schnauzer?
Sort of... I was very afraid of them as a child, now I'm mildly scared
Not scared of anything with a pulse. If it bleeds it can be killed.
I've had too many bad experiences with big dogs not to be scared by one
Pitbull, yes. I heard pitbull have strength equal to tiger.
I'm scared of people who are scared of dogs
yes especially if they're not mine.
Most large breeds yes.
I like docile, such as Golden Retriever.
Scared of big dogs, not small ones.
Small ones usually are more agressive
@Kaytiee it's true but i always feel like if it ever attacks me i'd have higher chances of surviving loll, also i find them generally cuter ><But my parents grew up with German Shepherds and dog wolves and they told me they're super loyal dogs.
Yeah, I think if from a young age all dogs can be trained and such! I prefer bigger ones maybe its because I was raised with them? But my boyfriend has two little dogs, and I must say I enjoy having them on my lap and not being squashed by a big choc lab trying to lay on my lap lol.
Nope , I'm scared of chickens
I have two furry friends of my own. I love dogs.
Dogs are just gross in general.
I love dogs, but I'm wary of some dogs.
If they are big and barking at me yes I do.
Some dogs, yes.
I like dogs, especially big ones
No I love dogs so much
No I am not
NoI love animals, dogs
No, I love doggos.
nope why lol
@anmari2001 will give the best answer I think
Only certain dogs.
I have a healthy respect for dogs. I love certain dogs and keep my distance from others. I have been bitten a few times so it teaches you to respect them.
they're hellhounds to me, i'm very very scared of 'em
I'm scared of certain dogs. When I was a kid I petted a dog who was chewing on a bone. The dog jumped on me and ripped part of my neck (a large part of fat on my neck was hanging out and everything) and had to get stitches. Even with this fear, most dogs I've met love me. Even this big great Dane, size of a mini horse, I saw it and got scared but after I started petting him he was all over me. I stopped petting him for one second and he put all of his weight into me and i almost fell over lmao. It really depends on the dog, but at the end of the day dogs (like most pets) have wild ancestry and I prefer small ones, because if one snaps at you, you could at least get away.
No I love them a lot like all animals, of course if one would attend on my life I would need to show him who is the bigger stronger animal.
It offends me that this question is even asked, dogs are everything.
If a dog is acting bad it’s usually the owners fault, ofc some breeds are more aggressive and such but those usually have a good owner who knows what they’re doing
