      Interesting info! We have two basset hounds, and although they are so sweet and laid back. They are just like big teddy bears that just want to snuggle and love on you.

        We have a St. Bernard and I'm not suprised that they're on the list for being good with kids. Our big guy is just a gentle giant- he is the sweetest, most docile and easy going dog I've ever seen. He loves kids and is so great with them- he's really friendly but he never jumps up or gets too rowdy. He does shed, though- I feel like I'm always going around with the broom or a vacuum. He needs a lot of space, too, in the house and outside of it- a fenced in yard is a must (there aren't many ropes that could hold him if he wanted to go and Saints can be dumb about cars-if he got loose it could be a disaster). A great dog for us, but not for everyone. I think it's so important to do your research before you get a dog so that you can find one that's a good fit for your lifestyle.
        Loving married life!

            Not suprised that my baby is not on the list (doberman pinscher).. people think they are mean and vicious but I say those are the people who've never owned one!
