You've just described every sh*t zoo I've ever met. And I've met a lot of them. A family friend always has about 5 or 6 of the damn things & Mrs. Duck's parents have two of them. I hate those dogs because all they do is "yip yip yip" all the time, round the clock. They're always on the furniture getting it all hairy. They growl at their owners for some reason. And they bark like hell at strangers. You can't even pet the damn things because they're so shaggy & their fur is always covered with slobber. I don't like long hair dogs. If I was unfortunate enough to get stuck with one I'd keep it trimmed short. And have a vet remove it's damn vocal cords.
