I’m a vet tech & there are five dog breeds I’d never own – including the unpredictable pooch that lunges without warning

WHEN it comes to welcoming a dog into your home, there are many factors to consider – from breed to potential health issues.

But according to a veterinary assistant named Miranda Smith, there are five breeds of dog she would never own — and it’s all because of her experiences since working in the industry.

In a clip shared on TikTok (@msmith007), she begins, “Breeds of dogs I, as a veterinarian, will NOT own either.”

First, she states that she never wants to bring a corgi into her life.

“We have some corgis that come into our home with strong attitudes, but they’re probably cute at home,” she points out.

Next on the list of dog breeds she would always avoid is the German Shepherd.

“Most of our German Shepherds that we see at the clinic are very anxious and will usually lunge without warning. So I just don’t like working with them,” she says.

Miranda also goes on to point out that she’s not a fan of the Shiba Inu or a Rottweiler.


As for the latter, she explains, “We’ve had a couple of fearful Rotties that turned into aggressive ones, and since they’re so big, it’s super intimidating.”

“I just met some nice people.”

Finally, the vet discusses the pug.

“I just feel sorry for the poor thing,” she explains.

“Pretty much any brachycephalic breed (the ones that snort and sometimes have trouble breathing)… and even claw cuts suck.”

It wasn’t long before the post went viral, garnering over 125,000 comments and hundreds of messages from dog owners across the country – with very mixed opinions.

“All the Rotties I’ve had are super sweet and love the vet. I’m sorry you had a bad experience,” one wrote.

“If you raise them right, they’re big teddy bears!”

A second article said, “Greyhounds are the best dogs, but they’re definitely not for everyone.”

Miranda replied: “One of our vets owns a greyhound and she LOVES him. I like greyhounds, they are like giant cats.”

When asked by another person what breed of dog she would own, Miranda replied, “It’s going to be a REAL cliché, but I love golden retrievers, labs, pit bulls, and surprisingly, yorkies.”
