While many dogs and cats can live harmoniously together, there are certain dog breeds with hunting instincts that may be too strong to handle daily life with a feline friend

Nope. A cat is just another rodent as far as Bowser is concerned.

I remember the best dog we ever had. Old Richard was born in 1947 and died in 1956. At some times he was just unbelievable.

He did have one fault. He hated cats. We always had a few pet cats and us kids would try to make Richard make up with them.

He would take it for a little while as we put the cats up to his nose. Then after a few seconds we could tell he just couldn’t stand it any more and would put the cat up a tree.

"Until the cat and dog are comfortable with each other, supervise their interactions and provide a way for the cat to escape,"

There is the one important element in the article. My dog is 140 pounds from the time we got him at five months he was always told to leave the cats alone, now at five years old the cats bully him terribly.

Bowser stays in his yard and is free to exterminate as many rodents as he pleases.

Ridiculous. Our Aussie cattle dog was fine with our cats. We now have two Catahoulas that are the huntingest dogs you will ever see and they love our cats. They even love the new stray kittens we have brought home.
Dogs are like kids. They will act like you raise them. Properly adjusted dogs will follow the pack leaders lead.
Heck, we even have a German Shepherd that was an Air Force security dog. She had never dealt with cats and had no idea that she was not supposed to eat them. She learned and now cleans the newest kitten. She gets along with all of the other cats as well.

When we got our Rottweiler puppy we had two adult cats. He grew up with them bossing him around and never got over it. They’d take his food away from him whenever they felt like it.

Trace, the Schipperke watch dog here, will not molest the chickens unless he spots a particular item of leftover on the drive way, and even then he drives them away from it rather gingerly until he determines if it is worthy of his attention.

The two times a cat came through our wire, he was all over them.

Squirrels get his attention, too.

Foxes can’t stand him.

An officious little dog (22 pounds).

I would definitely expand on this list. On the other hand, there are several breeds who are trained to *not* kill, but do other things, that would likely be fine with cats, even if they annoyed them.

I’ve got a clipped female pit and an unclipped male half german shepherd half pit. An unclipped tom cat and a clipped queen. And an unclipped male rat terrior, and a female chi, uh, chiwawa, uh, chihuawa, whatever. They all get along very well, play together endlessly, and help each other watch out for the horses, rats, snakes, and coyotes.

Ditto here. I know someone with an Australian Cattle Dog / Terrier mix (both breeds a "shouldn't" according to this article) and two cats. I've watched the dog pounce on, play with, and even groom both cats - and they come back for more. They enjoy it. Both cats were introduced, as kittens, to their household after the dog was 2+ years old.

I have had to rescue my Springer from a pit a couple times before I told the tenant to get rid of it. If you want one of the killing machines to let go pick it straight up by the tail. It will be so freaked that it will drop whatever it has locked on to.

Our cattle dog border collie mix tolerates the cat. He doesn’t chase him but you can tell he doesn’t like him. The cat on the other hand, loves the ACD and wants to have his babies. Our dachshund wants to eat the cat but knows he’s not allowed. It sounds sad for the cat but he seems content.

I had what looked like a flat hair retriever, and a cat. They would cuddle and nap together for 14 years. But when a strange dog or cat crossed the yard, they they would both react no mater which species was there at the time. On the cat’s part we would have displaced aggression, but the dog would only bark. 5 minutes later they would be buddies again.

Surprised the Belgian malinois did not make the list, given their high prey drive.

None of German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County's malinois will tolerate cats.

That would explain why boxers, dobbies, and other fighting or guard dog breeds have historically had their tails docked. Just when I think I know a thing or two about dogs a freeper points out the obvious. Picking the pit up by the tail would have saved my neighbors dog from a serious beat down last month when it grabbed our rat terrior by the neck scruff.

Ten staples for the rat terrior, neighbors pit, don't know.

My neighbor got seriously skinned knees during the episode but came out to apologise the next morning and didn't mention her dogs condition. I didn't mention my vet bill.

Yes we can just all "get along." My neighbor is an older Vietnamese import with poor english skills.

You are so right about the high prey drive in the Belgian Malinois, but they are the best dogs anyone could ever hope to share their life with, if they have the right living situation, and can provide a proper environment (not apartment or yard dogs).

Those of you who know dogs will understand what I mean. These are small farm dogs, and need that kind of environment.

People who think dogs are an accessory to a fashionable life-style do not want to get involved with a Belgian Malinois. You both will be miserable.

They will disappoint you if you, as partners, do not provide a small property to garden, tend and protect, and a life to share with them, the way a farmer and his wife would on a daily basis. Belgians need to be with their humans all day and all night long, for they were bred for the way life used to be.

I would give anything to have my Hanna and Shadow back again, and to relive the years we shared together. I miss them so much.

We have a Schnauzer / Poodle mix who hates cats but respects claws. He leaves the cats alone after some unfortunate experiences. He is a real wuss. On the other hand, we have a Boston Bull who loves everybody including the cats who return the affection.

She had never dealt with cats and had no idea that she was not supposed to eat them. She learned and now cleans the newest kitten.

My Shepherd did the same thing. She would carefully carry newborn kittens away from their mother and lick them until they smelled like proper puppies.

She never hurt the kittens. We'd just carry them back to their mother.

I’ve got labs who hate cats. My dogs are backyard dogs and the cats have learned NOT to go there.

The cats are at fault since they taunt the dogs through the back sliding glass door.
