Dogs are often referred to as “man’s best friend,” and usually with good reason. However, some breeds can be a bit much to handle. These dogs may cause your homeowners insurance to skyrocket, so be on the lookout when you’re looking to add a family pet.
Chihuahuas are misleading, since you may think they’re manageable due to their small size. However, they are quite tough to train as they tend to be very stubborn. They can also become a little aggressive towards children due to jealousy.
