Plus since the father isn't a dog lover and his child was bitten and got 2 stitches in the face from the puppy, I guess I you could see it coming. On the flip side, parents need to teach their children how to act around a puppy, I mean she put her head in the dogs crate and the puppy wanted to play the only way he knows how. Go figure.
    I have always had dogs with small children. My first two dogs Belle and Taxi I got when Timothy was 2. Echo I got when Liam was 3 &1/2 and the very first thing my children were taught was when the puppies, and even now as dogs, is in her crate she is off limits. The crate is the dogs safe haven and my children had to respect that. The other thing is the puppy and my children were not allowed to be alone with each other, not just for my kids safety but also for my dogs safety. Small children and puppies do what comes naturally to one another and that can equal disaster for either one if not properly supervised. People can be dumb when it comes to children and animals, they are both alot of work and you must know that going into it.

    Tammy I am so happy that the fostering thing has worked out for you in regards to the "vicious"hehe puppy. Have fun enjoying having a puppy in the house:)
