Yeah, because once the kid starts walking he will never sneak off and get into anything while you look away. Meat should run a day care.


yeah, and even though my boy isn't walking officially he's cruising and crawling and he's fast enough he might as well be walking

Fug it. Glad I don't have kids. Little bastards, running around making their parents jump through hoops. I'm giving out dog treats this Halloween.

If you keep the dog there will always be that chance of a bite happening.

Maybe it would help if I posted a pic of my daughters face right after the bite?

If you get rid of the dog there is zero chance. Infections from dog bites are very bad. Couldn't you adopt it to a home with no children?

I'd love to go that route but the dog is 13 and on his last legs, nobody would take him in.

Maybe it will just die soon then.

Not saying you should be looking forward to that, but it could happen if its so old...

He's bitten lots of men, two of my friends included. When I first met my wife he tried to bite me but I showed dominance and tamed him.


This statement tells me he should have another home found for him. You can get another dog down the road.

If your dog bites your 8 month year old then you probably should put it down given the age of the dog and the likelihood of it happening again.

Would the dog bite anyone else for startling it just by touching it?

If so that is a serious liability not just for your child but for other people and thus your bank account. It was not taught proper social skills and is to old to learn them now.

I don't think the dog meant serious harm, but it doesn't take much to leave a scar on a kid. Nipping will do it. Apparently the dog sees the kid as a peer and feels its ok to try to dominate him. If it were me I would find the dog another home and sleep better, despite how my wife felt with her emotional attachments.


This.

Serously.

True.

However, imagine this dog is your lifelong friend who has seen you through every low point.
