Thinking about getting a small dog like and walking it on trails but will people think I am gay or probably not? I am 6'4 so it might look small next to me

Just don't do the dress up thing. BTW you will be a people magnet when you walk that tiny little dog, so be ready!

What's it matter? If you want a small dog, get a small dog.

No. But if you are wanting a dog to go hiking with, that breed might not be the best fit for your lifestyle.

I agree if you want a small do like that then get it. Why even worry about what strangers think? Little secret is most people are too involved with themselves to give more then a passing thought if even that to a stranger.

And some small dogs are great hiking partners I had a friend with a maltese that could keep up with all the big dogs on hikes and also could burn up the agility course. He was a big dog in a little dogs body but he did not know he was little

My brother is 6'7" and has a mini pincher, no one questions his sexuality. Get whatever size dog that will make you happy that's all that really matters not what anyone else thinks.

It would be gay for you to have a romantic relationship with another man. Why are you concerned about people thinking you are gay? Why does it matter either way? This thread is honestly juvenile and possibly offensive to some.

I think its fine..who cares? But I agree, this isn't a dog you would walk a lot on trails or hike with. This is a dog who would be exercised with a short walk around the block. Although there are some small dogs who love lots of exercise, like mini-pins, jack russels to name a couple.

Are you single? There is something about a big guy with a little dog that gets the ladies attention. Don't think that would be anything close to gay.

Smaller dogs eat less and poop less. But if you want to hike and walk this dog, you are going to have to walk slow or be prepared to carry him. You probably have at least a 34" inseam and this dog's legs are like 4". The dog is running when you are walking slowly.

Gay? Nope! Almost every woman you see will stop and talk to you!
