demis are not necessarily (though you can still classify them as)
-rodents (such as Chihuahua, Yorkshire Terrier, Pomeranian, Tibetan Spaniel, Prazsky Krysarik or anything that might be seen carried in a purse or by Paris Hilton. Anything with "miniature" or "toy" in the name.
-& are most definitely not real dogs such as Golden Retriever, Labs, Border Collie, Boxer, Polish Hounds, Rottweiler, Weimaraner, German Shepherd, Husky, Doberman Pinscher, any dog typically breed for hunting, herding & other active lifestyles.
Theres confusion over what dogs are considered demis. Not all smaller/midsized dogs are demis. Take snoopy,all American traditional dog,yes small but definitely no demi, hes awesome! Heelers, theyre a smaller mid sized dog though they can take a kick to the face & dont give a crap. Some individual demis can be won over & work theyre way into your heart, pulling that individual dog out of the demi class but not necessarily the breed as a whole.
