As my kids would say, “the S - word” is not appropriate to describe anyone. The old mentality that your dog; whether beagle, husky or bulldog (sorry Jack) are a few banana’s short of a bunch is ludicrous. Each breed has a unique inherent trait developed by man for man’s use. We created these to make our life easier. The hunter’s job was made simpler if a group of hounds helped to chase down the fox, rabbit or fugitive! Those bird dogs will dive into extreme waters without hesitation and the herders, are incredibly swift, smart and tireless. So when you’re picking your next breed do so wisely. The only example of little intelligence is the poor decision making of the owner.
