BOXER!!! My boxer WORSHIPS my SO's little boy. He used to be my dog now he is HIS. In fact once at a park my boyfriend said "He's her dog" pointing at me and his little boy took offense!! He said, "NO HE'S MY DOG!!!!!!!!!!!" He feeds him, lets him out and goes with me on his vet trips. He's only five and has taken on this dog, its incredible!! We just spent the last year with his son living with us and now are fighting for custody because mom took him back. The first week after he left my boxer would not eat, sleep or do anything but whine. We went a whole month without mom letting us see him and I was really worried my boxer would die.
He does tend to do better with older children and that may be because he didnt grow up around them all his life. He almost seems to intimaidated by younger children whom are smaller than him.
My lab is also wonderful with the kids they only thing I see with her and children is in her old age now she tends to want to escape from them lol. She doesnt growl or bite, when she has had too much she just goes and hides lol.
