    Mostly positive experiences, but I have had people totally avoid him, I think it is because his bottom teeth stick out making him look like he is mean....IF they only knew what a total wuss he was and he would lick them to death if they would pet him.

    I ran into the same problem when I take him to the dog park. I've had people tell me that he looks mean and they're afraid to pet him.

    Have any of you ever had a problem with people thinking your bully is vicious or mean? I guess the idea seems so silly to me because I know what a big loving goofball Roscoe is.
    We haven't had that problem with Jack because he's still a puppy and just haven't had him out much. But we used to get that with our english mastiff who was 170 lbs. Max was a big sweetheart and even bigger couch potato. He'd only hurt you if he stepped on your foot. But everyone was afraid of him. I'm guessing if you don't know the breed, the look can be intimidating. As a parent to small children though, I'm teaching them to never run up to a dog that they don't know regardless of the breed. I'm teaching them that they need to ask permission before approaching a dog and how to hold out a hand to let the dog sniff first.

I didn't do much to change their minds as most people know what a bulldog costs and I didn't want them getting any ideas
    lol. Teddy bear and a hamster!?

    It's mostly positive with Stig and Punkin as well. The only people who do avoid are the ones that thing they're pitbulls. Until they see oodles of people around the boys that they actually come up and learn that they're ebs and are family dogs all around.

    I get this on occasion. But it is usually from the very same people that say she is a pitbull.

    I have only had a few people ask me if he bits or is mean before they ask to pet him and I tell he will lick them to death.

    That reminds me of when Stig got his nails dremmeled at a store before. There weren't any free tables so the tech had to do it on the floor. Stig never sits still for these things so she asked if he was a biter. My bf and I giggled and said, no, not at all. And guess what he did a couple of seconds later in the middle of getting his nails done, freed himself from my bf's grip enough to give the tech a whole wad of licking. lol. Needless to say, the tech breathed a lot better after that.

    I know! What a fabulous combo!!! I love hamsters! Teddy Bears are pretty fun too - unless people are digging hearts out of their chests in which case, it's just gross. *snork*
