Question RE: Behavioral Modification, Evolution & Chihuahuas

I hate small dogs. I really do. Especially those aberrations of nature creatures called Chihuahuas.
What I really hate about them is their attitude. I mean, you can kill them with a simple kick, yet they behave like they can eat the whole world with a simple chomp.
It's the way they yap at anything that moves, violent little critters.

I wonder how many years of kicking generations upon generations of chihuahuas (and other similar grumpy little mutts) would have a change in behavior on an evolutionary scale??
Like, so they know that they are 1 pound little rats and behave like it.

Damn

As a vet tech, I can tell you that part of the reason chihuahuas are the way they are is because people who buy small rat dogs don't bother to socialize or obedience train them. Chihuahuas, as a rule, are one person dogs, so if you don't socialize them, they will ALWAYS try to take off your arm.

I hate the little bastards.

Dachsunds are pretty much the same way. My aunt had a few and my god, they couldn't have been worse around kids. My ex-gf had a few that were pretty well trained, so I dislike them as much as I used to, but I still don't like them all that well.

I don't say this about all dogs, but it's okay to shoot them.

I'm sorry, but you're wrong.

My chihuahua was really sweet and loved kids. She played with both my cats too, although only one enjoyed it. She never bit anyone, but she was a big licker as well as a poop eater, so it was wise to keep your face away from her. I really miss her.
