    Absolutely not. If any dog bites my child, whether it breaks the skin or not, it will not be anywhere near my child again.

    No, sorry to say. I have a staffy x kelpie x heeler x lab (bit of a mix!) and while she is great around my 5 week old now, if she shows any sign of aggression towards my DD she'll be rehomed, even though it would break my heart to do it. Our dog was our baby, but now our actual baby has to come first.

    So am I.... but I still wouldn't keep a dog that regularly snapped at and bruised my child. My children deserve to feel safe and happy in their own home, as do my pets. If I had any animal that hated my children, or any animal that my children hated, they would be rehomed. I have a responsiblity to keep my entire family happy and safe, and obviously I'm not going to rehome my kids, so the pets would be found loving more suitable new homes.

    I'm actually really surprised this is a real question. My child would come first always! It's a no brainier for me!!

    I DO understand the question, because having worked in the animal industry for majority of my life, it was always drummed into me that pets are for life, and you do not give up on your pets no matter what and you always make time for them and make a place for them etc and I DO agree with that,

    but as a mother, I think it's crazy to put your own child at risk, even for the sake of a very much loved pet. Just not an option for me. My kids come above everything and always will.

    I took that posters post as no they wouldnt keep the dog but in saying that they arent a dog loving person anyway so that wouldnt be a shock.

    Absolutely not. The dog would be gone after the first instance. If the dog is leaving bruises I would say it is biting not snapping.

    I wouldn't rehome as a first resort, but if the risk to my toddler was ongoing then the dog would be gone.
