I have a jack russell and a Rotty. The Jack Russell is great with the baby I think this is because I work in the disability field and he has come to work with me since he was a pup and he also does volunteer work in retirement homes, so he developed a very gentle temprement. Although I would never leave him alone with the baby because you never know.
The Rotty on the other hand is very gentle and loving towards my husband an myself so i was shocked when she snapped at a baby in the past while I was babysitting, the baby squealed and she didn't know what the noise was so she tryed to bite him which scared the hell out of me. Now that I have my own baby I get really nervous when she is around, which she can probably sense. when I was in hospital my hubby brought home the babies blanket and gave it to them, and when I came home I introduced them to Jack through the screen door. I often go near them when he is crying so they get used the noise. But what it comes down to is that I will never trust the Rotty (Casey) and would like to find her a new home although I love her. The problem is she is my husbands dog and he doesn't believe she is a danger, so I'm not sure how to put it to him, because he becomes quite defencive. I don't want her to actually bite jack or anyone else before he believes me. Any suggestions?
