My dad often kicks my toy poodle Mickey across the room when he goes to work in the morning. Can a dog get hurt if kicked?
Dear Pillow Sniffer,
It’s not widely known, but the toy poodle is in fact a breed originally developed to be used as a toy! The breed is sturdier than it looks and these dogs can take a severe beating without suffering permanent physical damage.
Besides, they are not real dogs like Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds, Great Danes, Bulldogs and Rottweilers, so does it even matter? You can always get a new one…
