  1. The owners of mean dogs are to blame, not the dogs. I have a 4 years old rottie whos the biggest lover youll ever meet. Very protective of children but also very gentle with them.

  2. Yes it has to do with training and the loving homes the animal is in. Just keep an eye out, and keep enjoying your dog
    .

  3. I have a pit mix who is VERY child-tolerant which I consider a small miracle because we don’t have any in our house. But she is absolutely calm and submissive with them.

    FYI she is 9 years old, so I’m not just spouting B.S., she has stood the test of time.

  4. You can argue about large dog breeds around young kids all day but what it all boils down to is responsible pet owners and good judgment. You know your dog. You know if you can trust them. Anyone that acts shocked after there dog attacks someone is full of it. Our dogs give us signals of there mood constantly, if you fail to learn to read your dog then that’s an owner problem not a dog problem. We raised my Pit Enzie from 8 weeks old and always treated her like family not just a “dog”. When my sister and 3 mo old nephew moved in, I was a little worried. Not because she is at all aggressive but she’s a giant who thinks she’s a lap dog and acts like she’s always on Red Bull. Within minutes of introducing them, she proved me wrong. Every night she slept next to his bassinet and would stick her nose over the side and peek in whenever he cried. She never barked or got crazy around him, and nobody but his mom could pick him up, without being followed and getting the stare down from Enzie. I trust her more than most people in my life. Dogs are just like us, all you have to do is treat them the way you want to be treated, and teach your kids to do the same. People call them dangerous, so why do I feel the safest when she’s around. You don’t need a gun or alarm system if you have a Pitbull in your bed at night.
