Pet parents do not judge their fur babies by the way they look but that might not be the case for everyone else. Some people only prefer dogs who look fluffy and cute, albeit from their perspective but that doesn't give them the right to insult the pooches owned by others. Unfortunately, Rianna, who owns two Rotweillers called Nala and Axel, found herself in the middle of an uncomfortable situation where a person spat at her dog Axel and called him an "ugly monster" right in front of their own child.

Rianna—who goes by @nala_the_needy_rottie on Instagram—addressed this situation and reminded people how it is not okay to disrespect any dog like that, especially if they are with their owners. The caption on her post read: "Don’t bully my breed! The other reality of owning a rottweiler is the blind hatred that follows. The Rotties have been called every mean name you can think of but I’ve never actually had someone physically do it. I’m not expecting everyone to like, interact or even acknowledge my dogs but to have someone hate a dog just for the way he looks makes me really sad. I don’t expect to change everyone’s opinions on rottweilers but I do want to change it is okay to bully any breed of dog."

Rianna mentioned how Axel was called an "ugly monster" by a person walking on the street. "I sincerely hope the child does not grow up to be like their parent," Rianna said in her video. "There is nothing wrong with teaching your child to be cautious while going up to a stranger's dog. It is a great thing for children to understand manners when they are approaching any dog." However, a parent teaching their child to hate a dog because of the way they look is wrong. "What do we do when people say mean things about us?" Rianna asks her dog and the Axel replies with a wide grin as he goes in to hug Rianna. "Yes, we smile and ignore them." Fellow dog lovers on Instagram assembled under the post to collectively support Axel and Rianna and left sweet comments to cheer them up.

Think it’s down to the owner, not the breed." @elianawalmsley_ commented: "He is beautiful! My parents owned a rottie and she was a lovebug! he looks like one too!" @xan.nanxx quipped: "I don't know why but I’m more cautious with my son around little dogs more than big dogs and that’s from my personal experience. By the way, I would like to beg you to let me cuddle this puppy he’s adorable." @unfoldingwaves added: "I am nowhere on a parenting journey but all I can say is that parents shouldn’t pass on their fears and opinions to their children. Let the kids observe and form their own opinions based on their individual experiences."

Axel might have been called an ugly monster but not many people might know about the "world's ugliest dog" named Mr. Happy Face. He was the official winner of the 2022 World's Ugliest Dog Contest. Mr. Happy Face is an 18-year-old, almost hairless rescue pup with a protruding tongue. Since the day he won the contest, he has turned into a celebrity through his Instagram account and has appeared for interviews on TV shows and publications from around the world with his owner Jeneda Benally.
