  • We have had a ShihTzu since right before my son was born and she was always very good with him. At most, she would avoid him and other little ones because dogs figure out that kids are unpredictable and risky to be around. Small dogs are a bit risky like that because they know they are at risk themselves around the kids....

  • We just got one, a boy, and I have 2 kids 2 and 4. He is great!!!! He is so gentle, and just loves attention.

    I was told the females tend to get a bit snippy later in age.

  • I have three. All my dogs are older ( the youngest is 6) They tend to run from my son (he's 2) but are never aggressive with him. My mom has 5, no problem there either.
