This is Carlos. He is 2 years old very smart and very energetic. He loves children and gets along well with larger dogs. He's very loyal but can also be stubborn. Carlos is very protective.
----Greetings from Small Dog Place---- Carlos sounds like the perfect dog with all the characteristics that small dog lovers find irresistible in their little canine companions--intelligence, energy and spunk, the ability to get along with other dogs and also with children and serve as a watch dog too.
It's funny that many people report that their dog is stubborn and if I didn't live with a whole pack of stubborn dogs I might think people who report stubbornness in their breed just had expectations that were just too high.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. Some dogs are just plain stubborn. I personally believe that having a dog with a stubborn streak shows a high sense of intelligence. Dogs must know they have a choice when they show their stubborn side. You can almost sense what they are thinking...
Do I come to you or stay and finish what I was doing?
Do I eat my dinner or will you make it tastier if I choose not to eat?
What if I choose not to like this new little puppy, what are you going to do?
Stubbornness is definitely inborn in some small breed dogs.
