I had a dutch, sweet little thing I got him when little. They need alot of care w/ their pens something a small child is going to have troule with. Anyway he was around people all the time he was at an Adult Day Care 2x's a wk. so he was very much used to people. He walked on a leash and loved sitting in the bird bath. What I did was alot of resereach, they have to stay cool they can overheat very fast, couldnt believe all the things about caring for one but I did it and larned alot (and yes they will pee on you in a heartbeat). The bad thing is they are fragil he broke his back just by jumping around in his cage(they call it getting binkey) it broke all our hearts I had him put to sleep and buired in the yard. Maybe a cat would be nice they live a long time and an be a great pet they are fun growing up and can be very loyal another thing they are fine if you would have to be gone for awhile a abbit needs care everyday. They are sweet thou I loved mine. Hope I helped.
