I have 6 dogs. When people with small children visit the dogs are put into their dog run. This in my opinion keeps the dogs safe.
I look back on my family photo's and cherish the ones with the dog in them. I loved growing up with a dog or two. I cried my heart out when they passed on.
I would of hated my parents if they had of taken the dog from me.
I know that having children and dogs together means extra work. Training is more crucial and exercising the dog is a must.
but it is the Australian dream to own a house, buy a dog and then have kids, if every home was to get rid of the dog when the kids arrived it would be a sad state of affairs indeed.
A dog is for life and people need to think that thru carefully.
I hope he finds a good home where he will be loved.
