#1 is by FAR Dachschunds, I have been bit SO many times by them! Nasty little effers......
#2 would probably have to be Cockers, those dogs are off their rockers on the whole.
I've had several neighbors with dachshunds and they have none of them been pleasant pups-- we recently had neighbors that Simon really did not like. They stared at him, tried to approach too quickly, and he acted like an ass. But of course, when they stand there holding their long-haired doxie, who was acting equally assy-- barking, growling, lunging-- they assured me she's very sweet.
Now, I was watching Dogs 101 the other day, when they had APBTs on-- one of the PROFESSIONALS said that you have to be careful because pits can and have "snapped." He seemed to suggest that they do actually, suddenly go berserk, but gave no further explanation (LATER in the show he compared them to a sports car that needs a more responsible driver because of its power). Then they went on to gush over the sweet wonderfulness that is being owned by a cocker spaniel.
I've known some sweet cockers and some really, truly unpleasant ones. And some downright stupid ones-- but that almost made me barf.
