I have a bichon and no, no history of biting anyone! He’s extremely beta and very easygoing. Sometimes if my husband and I are goofing around or, like, hanging on each other or play wrestling he’ll try to jump on my husband or put his hands on his legs and start barking at him. It’s pretty cute but that’s about as protective as he gets!

I had a cocker spaniel, and he bit a friend of mine on the hand (broke her skin) when she reached down and grabbed a piece of food after she dropped it and he went after it…besides that he never bit anyone..guess he really wanted that chip or whatever it was!

Nope, but then again, certain breeds tend to me a little more mouthy than others and a Great Pyrenese, a Greyhound and a Lab just really don’t have that in them…I have however been knocked on my ass by all three on seperate occasions…and if so incline, my cat will bite the hell outta my sister’s calves, she longs for her untimely demise…or something.

@daybyday:  That is adorable!

My cat has nipped at me on occasion when I am dangling a piece of string in front of her, but she is very careful even then, and has never actually bitten.  She’s a good girl.

My pet (dog) has never bit me, I have had her over five years, and if she did, I’d have her ass at the animal shelter real quick, this also applies if my pet would ever bite my child. A puppy does not count, I am talking about a full grown dog that is trained. Cats are different they bite when playing….

@newname_99:  Our dog bit my husband once. He was still a pup at 8 months. We were sitting in the living room and heard paws hit the counter in the kitchen. Darling Husband got up to go tell our boy to get down. Darling Husband walked up behind him quietly while our boy was eating from the roast chicken sitting on the counter, and at the same time grabbed the dog’s shoulders and yelled “what are you doing!?!?!”. Our boy reacted by biting DH’s hand and jumping away. When he turned around and saw Darling Husband and realized what he did, he then ran upstairs while peeing the entire way, and I found him shaking at the side of our bed. I think it was instinct – he was too busy eating the chicken to hear Darling Husband creep up behind him, and Darling Husband surprised and scared him by suddenly grabbing him and yelling. He knew he’d done something really really really bad. I took him outside and then put him in our bathroom for a 10-minute time-out. He was sad/depressed for 2 days after and kept putting his head on DH’s knee and crying. It’s the only time he’s ever bitten anyone, and it’s the only time he’s ever been up on the counter stealing food. He’s really good about not biting – he’s been bitten by a few other dogs and he just runs away. He doesn’t really have an aggressive bone in his body….I think he was just so surprised and scared that he acted defensively. I don’t even think it was a food aggression – he’s never shown it any other time, and I used to lie on the floor and play with his food while he ate to discourage that.

My dog is terrier mix. He’s never seriously bitten anyone, but he has nipped my 12-year-old brother a couple times (didn’t break the skin). My dog just doesn’t seem to like kids and my brother doesn’t understand that, so he bothers the dog a lot. Whenever they’re together, I try to teach both of them to respect each other and normally they do okay lol.

I have a pit mix and she’s never bitten anyone. Not even my last roommate who is the only only person that I’ve ever seen her dislike.

I’ve been bitten by all 3 of our dogs, not all on purpose though.

Josie has accidently bitten me several times when we were playing with toys and she missed the toy and got my hand. Stormy has bit me when I stuck my hand in the middle of an altercation between him and one of my other dogs, again an accident and he didn’t mean to bite me (just the other dog). And our rescue dog Rufus has bitten me before, he intended to bite, but he is missing most of his teeth so it really doesn’t hurt when he bites; Rufus was 6+ years old when we adopted him, we’ve had to worth through some issues with him.

Stormy has nipped at our neighbor kids before. They tease our dogs, it pisses me off to no end. And I’ve told them not to pet Stormy, they don’t listen. He gives warning too, he growls and barks, but they keep coming at him. (I try to always bring my dogs inside when our neighbor kids come out because they are royal terrors to the dogs. They tease them, shake our fence, ram wagons against the fence at our dogs, throw snowballs at our dogs, etc. They just are not nice kids! And the parents… well, they don’t deserve the title “parent”, they don’t watch their kids. So it’s not like I can tell the parents “hey, your kids terrorize my dogs!” and expect anything to be done about it.)

My cat is very bite-y because she is kind of a bitch, but she has never, ever drawn blood. It’s more of a warning nip than anything else because she just wants to be left alone. My snake bit me once and drew blood, but that was totally my fault!

My male pom is all bark but wouldn’t ever actually bite anyone. It really is all for show.

My first dog, Zorro, was an evil, ill-tempered little monster, and he constantly bit me and my brother and anyone else who bothered him, and I have the scars to prove it.  He was a chihuahua, though, so he didn’t do a whole lot of damage, and I loved him despite the fact that he was awful.

Oh, cats! I forgot we were talking about cats too. When I tease my cat and poke at her belly while she’s sitting upright, yes, she will try to bite my hand. She’ll also try to bite the comb when I’m grooming her. I wouldn’t really call it aggression and she’s never been like that with anyone but me.

My shih-tzu is a biter.  He bit the Darling Husband and my sister because they were reaching for him from under the bed.  My dog doesn’t like sudden moves; he will let you grab him if you call out his name and he can see you.  //  The weird thing is, kids play with him and he never bites them.  *shrugs*
