Default Your other dog breeds?

What other dog breeds do we all own other than Chihuahuas?

Our other dog is an English Bull Terrier. When we told people we were getting a Chihuahua, everyone made the joke 'it'll eat that thing for lunch!' - simply stereotyping the breeds and quite disrespectful to a responsible owner.
We put a lot of effort into raising and training our dogs, our EBT is a gentle giant and we love to see them together and show the world it doesnt matter what breed a dog is, through sociability any dog can get along with another.

Some people call English Bull Terriers 'ugly' and the Chihuahua an 'IT' dog, so as breed stereotypes they couldnt be more opposite.
They're exactly the same markings and look like little and large with their big ears haha.
Ive noticed when we walk our EBT girl together with our Chihuahua - passersby constantly want to stop and pet Pixie, before no one wanted to stop and pet our EBT...but now she is getting more attention through default and it feels as though Pixie has helped to ambasador our EBT even more!

But this also shows peoples stereotyping to presume a small dog wont bite them or that they wont scare them; children often run upto Pixie and try to pat her head which in doing so scares her and I have to intervene.
I think its great to see Chihuahuas socialising with all different breeds of dogs

We used to have a very old black labrador when our first Chihuahua Tobias arrived. At the time we also have Staffordshire Bull Terriers which we rescued them from the rescue centre. Since Hebe (our lab) corssed the bridge, we have another Staffy and 3 more Chis. They all get along very well although the top dog reward has to go to the Chihuahua girl Krystal

I have a golden retriever named Lincoln, because he's an english cream he's always gotten quiet a bit of attention, but now Bijoux gets it all. Which shocking is good for lincoln because he's still a puppy and gets stupid hyper so it's excellent time to train him.

I have had people ask if Bijoux is Lincolns baby -which I get very offended at, even the thought of people assuming i'm a byb gets my blood boiling.

If I could have though I most likely would have gotten a pit bull I simply adore bully breeds and would love to train one to be the ambassador for the breed like i'm training Bijoux to be. You don't know how many times already i've gotten "she's not nasty like all other chihuahua's " Score a point against stereo typing!

We have a 2-year old cocker spaniel who is into everything and is our little clown. Our chi is about 6 and it's sweet to watch our cocker love on our chi. I think at some point we might get a pittie, which I grew up with and love....but I also have a soft spot for senior dogs so I'm thinking of getting a senior chi at some point.
