A former pet industry worker has sparked a debate by warning people not to adopt five unexpected dog breeds in a video that has garnered seven million views. Many took the comments to defend their dog breed while others agreed with his controversial views.
The TikToker, chillicheesechelsea, captioned their video with a disclaimer warning their audience not to take the video too seriously.
She said: “I love these breeds, but I don’t want to own one. Don’t come for me doodle moms…THIS IS JUST MY OPINION!!!!.
The first breed in his sights was the oft-adored Husky. The breed has thick fur and should be brushed regularly to keep their coat healthy.
She claimed the Huskies were “completely unbalanced and always screaming”. Some in the comments agreed with his assessment.
One woman said, “I didn’t understand the hoarse hatred [until] I lodge and pet sit for a friend. That damn dog used to sing his people’s song to me at 5 a.m. every day.
The next breed under fire was the German Shepherd – or Alsatian as they are commonly known in the UK.
She said, “Always the most anxious and FOR WHAT.”
German Shepherds were bred as guard dogs, a trait that often leaves them feeling anxious.
The next breed on the list was the Samoyed who she called the “fun police” because of their “incessant barking”. Samoyeds are relatively energetic and playful dogs, which tends to cause a lot of barking. They are known for their striking fluffy white coats.
One user defended their Samoyed but conceded that they can be quite loud.

They said, “My Samoyed is so quiet at home, but when we go out somewhere with him, he moans and yelps. RIP to the ears of vets and groomers lol.
Perhaps the most controversial choice on the list was “literally ANY doodle mix”.
The social media user called out owners who “don’t know how to manage their energy” making them “uncontrollable demons”. She also lamented the “matted” fur from all the doodle blends she had worked with.
Doodle owners flooded with comments defending their breed.
One user claimed, “Doodles are literally the sweetest, best dogs ever.
Another added: ‘Our doodle is literally one of the best dogs I’ve ever had. As long as you take care of them, they are literally the cutest dogs ever.
Others agreed that owners were responsible for their dogs’ exuberance.
One said: “Doodle owners are the kind of parents who would say ‘oh he NEVER would! He’s the nicest kid!’ In response to their child hitting a classmate.

Doodles are mixes between Poodles and all other dog breeds. Labradoodles and Goldendoodles are extremely popular because they don’t shed much fur.
The final breed on the controversial list was not a breed at all but any type of “small white dog with crispy eyes”.
She called them “crunchy little ankle biters.”
Dogs like Shih Tzus and Maltese are notorious for having problems with their eyes, leading to a crusty appearance.
There are many different causes of eye problems in dogs and veterinarians recommend using cotton balls with a little saline solution to gently remove the crust from a dog’s eyes.
The TikTok user has since posted a “part 2” video where she takes aim at Yorkshire terriers, Australian shepherds, corgis, French bulldogs and Great Danes.
