My 3month old puppy bit my 4year old daughters face!

We have 3 month old shih tzu and I have two girls ages 4 and 2. My 4 year old was playing with oscar(our shih tzu) who bit her in her face. He made her bleed and there are teeth marks. I am scared because the older he gets the bigger and shaper his teeth will get! This is not the first time this has happened, he has bit her hand before but never made her bleed.

He's a puppy and your daughter needs to stay out of his face. She probably scared the poor little thing.

Also the older he gets the more used to your children he gets and the more obedient he gets. Before you go tossing him to the side like he's a bad dog why not look into obedience classes and teach him.

I mean he IS still a baby and needs to be taught how to act.

If you have not been training the dog then obviously you need to.

If you ahve been...I wouldn't keep the dog. Not all puppies bite, especially if they are being trained.

:( Your poor DD!  Personally, I wouldn't keep a dog around that bit.  However, he is young.  Maybe obedience training would help?  I hope it all works out for you guys.

t and the older your girls get the better all will behave around each other. Getting rid of the dog won't solve any problems and only make DD feel bad that it might be her fault the dog had to go away.

You need to rehome the dog. You obviously have no clue about dogs, and it will be easier to find a good home now than later. I have three dogs a pit bull breed, a lab, and a bullmastif. I am very pro dog but if your kid was in the position to get bit in the face you need to rehome it immediately.
