highly sensitive hearing and smell. Dog prob barking at a mouse/rat/bug or something that just smells or sounds threatening

Big dogs don't bark as much/aren't as aggressive because they know they're big and so they don't feel like they have to do anything to assert their presence.

 

Alternatively, I have a joke explanation that I've used that all dogs, regardless of breed, have the same amount of energy/neuroticism in them.  However, in big dogs it has more room to move around within the dog's body, while in smaller dogs it bounces around in them much faster and makes them jumpy, crazy, and vocal.

     Usually it's because the owners treat the dogs like babies instead of dogs. If you keep carrying it around like a fashion accessory the dog isn't able to socialize like a normal dog, so they become neurotic and aggressive to anything they feel might threaten them or their immediate family..

Dogs are protective. They bark to alert the "pack"

I don't know but my wife has a Teacup Chihuahua and that little thing, thinks he is a pit bull. He isn't scared of anything. Could be that they think they have to act this way to protect themselves.
