Recently started dating a girl with a Dachshund that keeps its distance from me while continuously barking. If I try to get any closer to show it I'm friendly it will back up and bark more.

I don't have faith in my girlfriend or her family to train the dog.

She will act nice if we are locked in a room for a while but will switch back to her old habits if I'm around the entire family in the living room.

Today while dropping my girlfriend off and walking her inside her dog started barking at me. I swiftly caught up to her and grabbed her. She...

You're an idiot to have done that if you did it without permission. I hope you cleaned up her pee and shit because that was on you. Your girlfriend needs to tell her dog to shut up and give it a swift kick in the ass.
>>
Not really, you made her fear you more. She was scared of you, hence backing away and barking. Then you gave her a reason to fear you, by catching her while she is running, forcefully holding her even after she looses her bowls, which is another sign of fear and an attempt to get the 'attacker' (you in this case) away from her.

Instead you should go slow, offer her treats, or be the one to feed her and walk her. This way, she will know you are more than an intruder in her house and a potential threat. Good luck
>>
if the dog also barks at your girlfriend and her family, than you may have done the right thing.Since that would meant that the dog sees itself as the alpha of the house and doesnt want you in there but if she just barks at you than that means that either

a)your girlfriend didnt introduced you to the dog, which is a very simple yet important thing to do since most house dogs are too dumb to understand that if someone is in your houe talking to the house members he/she probably isnt going to kill them or

I feel your feels anon. Good news though - I was moderately to severely allergic to cats (throat would close up and itch, eyes would be beet red, hives all over my skin) and then I decided fuck it and got a cat. Ever since then, my allergies have been almost completely quelled. Once in while I will get a little rash on my neck after he kneads on me but it's completely worth it. My advice - go for it, bruh.

Same anon again. Also just remembered there are hypoallergenic dogs, and dogs with hair rather than fur (such as poodles) are much better for allergies.

My cats are fine because hey, they're plain old pound cats. One or two of my goldfish might make it if they got into a dam or river. 99% or my tropical fosh would be fucked. Chickens might make it a month or so but would probably get picked off by foxes in the end.
My sheep would last until dogs got them or their wool grew too thick. Flystrike would get them in that case.

My dog, sadly, would either starve or attack a snake and die. I'd hope for snake so its fast.

The rabbit's a goner. He's big, clumsy, and ain't scare of no thing.

The kitten would be absolutely fine, she was born outside and lived her first 9 weeks outside. The adult cat is disabled, but can still climb and run. She might have some trouble hunting.

Good point, we should only focus on the MOST endangered animal and completely ignore all others.

>>2040389
we're currently focussing on animals that aren't even endangered such as lions and rhinos.

fix those that are the most likely to go extinct first, or don't but stop pretending you care.

a what?
I've heard it's pretty easy to mod certain types of Tupperware as passable tanks, but I'm not sure about the heat source. my corn would be a baby while it was in the dorm anyway, so it wouldn't have to be huge. and I don't think the RAs can look in closets, so that might work haha. or under the bed.
