Are ferrets good with big dogs like German shepherd dogs?

Will they attack dogs?

Answer:
Hi there,

Ferrets and dogs can get along very well, however if you already have a dog then consider his personality first.

Is he/she good with small animals in general. Would he attack a ferret?

It also depends on the type of ferret you get, as most probably will just want to play with a dog(sometimes they do get a bit rough when they play) while others might freak out (very rare though as ferrets are more curious then anything) and could either react by running away or becoming aggressive as they try to defend themselves.

One thing that is important to keep in mind is...A German shepherd is much bigger then a ferret so there is only so much a ferret could do to it before it turned around and kicked its arse.

If you do get a ferret, make sure you educate yourself properly about them and always supervise the play time between ferret and dog. Make sure you introduce them nice and slowly, so that they can get used to each other first.

I hope this helps. Let me know if there is anything else you would like to know. :)

Which should be taken of looking after of every type of epidermis. Dryness is triggered when the epidermis loses the part of lipid which is mainly accountable for locking the wetness within the epidermis. But once the part is lost, whatever wetness the epidermis contains gets disappeared leaving the epidermis dry Halocel

I have dog/fert harmony NEW
by: sharon

I have 2 ferts and 2 pit mixes. Large dog plays with male ferret quite a bit. Fert even tries to scruff big dog--very funny. Occasionally the ferret will hang off of dog's "lip." Female fert is more laid back and the dog knows it so he plays with her much more gently. Carries her around in his mouth. Ferts hide from dogs in corrugated pipe and tease them. The only time I worry about the dogs and the ferts is when the two dogs corner one of the ferrets. The fuzzies seem to know the rules of survival pretty well.
I foster rescue dogs and I always make sure they are young enough to socialize to my small creatures.
