    If it was myself, I'd be contacting the breeder. If that wasn't an option I'd get a trainer out to look at the pup not just calling them, it's hard to advise without actually seeing the pup.

    Definatly keep them seperate.

    Mastiffs are known for beening gentle with children, although they dont always realise they're size. So I'de be very conserned with such a younge pup showing signs of aggression.

    I'd say goodbye to the dog. Let someone without a child and with experience train him.

    Look...I own 2 bull breed dogs and if ANY of them EVER show aggression towards a child...sorry to say it, but they will be pts! It is not an acceptable behaviour for a bull breed and can become very dangerous and devastating in a split second!

    You need to get help...ASAP...not in 1 week....not after next incident...RIGHT NOW!

    Yeah Im with Cleasanta, if Boss bit a child, He would be pull down straight away.. The same goes with if he attacks livestock.

    You probably can train it out of him but it always will be in the back of your mind that you cant trust him around your children

    The most worrying factor for me is that the dog is only 4 months old or so. God help you and your son if he was older.

    Treat this with the seriousness it requires - please.

    The fact that he's only 4 months old is the reason why I said find someone else to try and train him.. if he was older I would have said PTS right away.
