#18.and #21. big tough vicious pit bulls, lol, I’m so glad they included those pics in the list!
Regarding the pictures of kids with dogs – I’m not entirely convinced that kids should be nose-to-nose with dogs – you’d have to really know the dog (and the child). We had a horrible incident in this area last fall and the child will need surgeries and rehab for years. A friend just returned from 2 years working in Viet Nam and she was telling me about the vicious chihuahuas that people there use as watchdogs. I laughed at the idea, but I guess they can do a lot of (low level) damage.
They can and do. I worry when young children are around dogs they don’t know. They want to play with the dog and get right in it’s face. Some dogs are much better with that than others. The kids mean no harm but until the dog gets comfortable with the kid I’m not so sure it’s safe. We have family that have a pitbull and he’s the gentlest with their kids as they climb all over and play with him.
