Not Sharing Either

Proving it’s not the size of the dog that makes a fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog, this small dog refuses to share his food with the “giant” German Shepherd. Check out the video from WaggleTV’s YouTube channel:

Lakeland Terrier

AKC Group: Terrier
The Lakeland Terrier hails from the Lake region of England and were used as a ratter and fox hunter. The Lakeland Terrier has been selectively crossed bred using the Old English Wirehaired Terrier, the Bedlington Terrier, the Border Collie and Dandie Dinmont Terrier. The Lakeland Terrier has been known as the Fell Terrier, Eltewater Terrier or Patterdale Terrier. The Lakeland Terrier came into fruition in 1921.
Size: Less than 14.5 inches high; 15 to 17 pounds
Color: Solid colors of blue, black, liver, red or wheaten. Wheaten or golden tan with a blue, black, liver or grizzle saddle.
Life span: 12 to 16 years
Health problems: Legg Perthes, elbow dysplasia, lens luxation, cataracts, thyroid problems and von Willebrand’s Disease.
The Lakeland Terrier is an entertaining little dog that is playful and full of energy. This dog has a real love of life. Confident and courageous, he’s curious and inquisitive. They love to dig (sorry
gardeners). They need a lot of physical activity and attention. They tend to bark a lot. Eager to please, the Lakeland Terrier is intelligent and learns quickly. Training isn’t easy¬†as they have an independent and stubborn streak. Try to socialize him early and properly to stem off his love of chasing cats. You may never to be able to trust that a small rodent pet won’t end up becoming your Lakeland’s lunch. With strangers, a Lakeland is polite but wary. With children, he is good when they’re gentle and considerate. To train effectively, be consistent and positive and use socialization as a reward. To avoid his stubborn streak, try to vary training methods and exercises. If house training is difficult, try crate training. Use lots of praise and attention instead of punishments. Leash and lead training should be a priority in his training story since they are natural chasers. Also devote some attention to his possessiveness of food and toys.
The Lakeland has a beard and a wiry, hard coat. He is square looking with small, wide-set eyes and a long muzzle. The Lakeland’s beard needs to be brushed and cleaned daily. Trim bottom hair. Brush weekly and have his coat clipped every few months. When properly groomed, the Lakeland is a low shedder.

Lagotto Romagnolo
AKC Group: Sporting
The Lagotto Romagnolo is an ancient Italian breed known for water retrieving in the lowlands of Comacchio and the marshlands of Ravenna. Over time, the marshlands have been drained and the Lagotto has been repurposed to dig out truffles. (The only dog breed recognized for this purpose.) The Lagotto seems especially up to this task thanks to their highly developed sense of smell and high ability to concentrate.
Size: 16 to 19 inches high; 24 to 35 pounds
Color: Solid colors of white, off white or brown; white with brown, orange or roan patches
Life span: About 16 years
Health problems: Hip dysplasia, benign juvenile epilepsy or cerebral anomaly have occasionally been noted.
The Lagotto breed is loyal, keen and affectionate. They are easy to train and grow very attached to their family. When properly socialized, they get along with other canines and companion animals. They need plenty of exercise and they need to use that highly developed brain of theirs; this is a dog that needs to work, they need a job or a task to do at all times. When he isn’t busy enough, he will find other things to do and you don’t want this dog to choose his activity. When all things are going smoothly, the Lagotto makes an excellent family companion. Training-wise, make sure you employ a firm, calm manner.
The Lagotto is a small to medium sized dog. Squarely built, a Lagotto is a bundle of muscle. The head is big and sits upon a powerful neck. The eyes are big and round. The woolly coat is dense and curly. The denseness protects him from thorns in those bushes while searching for truffles. The droopy ears are triangular with rounded tips. Their coat does mat easily and needs to be combed regularly. Lagottos shed little to no hair.

Belgian Laekenois

AKC Group: Miscellaneous
Belgian Laekenois were used to herd sheep at the Royal Castle of Laeken. They are considered to be the oldest and most rare of the Belgian Shepherd dogs.
Size: 22 to 26 inches tall; 55 to 65 pounds
Color: Mahogany to fawn. Sometimes seen in brown or white.
Life span: 12 to 14 years
Health problems: Occasionally hip dysplasia, skin allergies or eye problems have been seen.
The Belgian Laekenois is not the dog if you’re inexperienced with dogs. They are an extremely loyal and protective breed. They need plenty of human interaction and will not do well if left alone for
too long, becoming destructive. They tend to bond to one person. They do well with kids they’ve been raised with. Always avoid chasing and tug-of-war games as well as roughhousing. They don’t do well with other companion animals, but do well with other canines that they’ve been raised with. They are suspicious of strangers and (again) are very protective of their family, territory and property. They love having a task and need much mental stimulation, so as much training as you can give him, the better for the both of you. They are very intelligent dogs! Always be firm, but never harsh. He will take it as a challenge. It’s so much easier to train him by using rewards instead of punishments. They tend to be shy as puppies, so this is the ideal to socialize him. The more time they spend with children or other animals, the more confidence they will develop. (Laekenois who haven’t been trained properly will later exhibit excessive aggressiveness.)
A herding dog, the Laekenois have heavily muscular hind legs. They have a fairly pointy muzzle and small ears that look out of place. (This is a common complaint with Laekenois lovers.) The Laekenois closely resembles all the other Belgian Shepherd dogs. They have shaggy and unruly hair. The teeth should meet in a scissor bite. His rough, wiry coat requires trimming twice a year. Dead (or excessive) hair should be removed with a coarse-toothed comb. If a groomer suggests a close trim, say no. You’ll ruin his coat. Bathe only when necessary, as frequent bathing will remove his natural waterproof-ness.
