Our border terrier was brought up inside, treated like a baby and was always a big softy, I suppose I brought him up I was just little but he was mine, he went to bed with me and everything.

Still, nobody knows why he turned but he did, I was sitting on the floor with him and he turned round and bit my face, he clung on (thats what their pointy teeth are for) I am now scarred from it. Not massively but still scarred.

I personally wouldnt have any working dog around my baby or young children, my mum knows this with her Patterdale cross, she puts him out when daisy is anywhere near.

Of course it is totally up to you, as long as you feel that you can train it properly and keep it away from your LO then thats fine.

Sorry to sound so negative about it, just going by my experience, Also my uncle breeds Borders and wont sell them to anyone with kids under the age of 8.

thats what im worried about, but then my older yorkie was very snappy, expecially with kids, but i was very obedient with my new yorkie from the word go so thats probably why he is very tame and has never bitten (upto now). the patterdale being a hunting dog is what makes me worry about having it around Lilly x

I told my oh about your thread and it reminded him that his friends patterdale is due to have pups next week and he's asked him for one

I feel like the woman who lived in the shoe combined with Noah from the ark

Outside from 8-10 weeks hun, good with kids

Watch that programme 'the dog whisperer', its brilliant at showing you how to handle all types of dog behaviour and maybe get a book from the library oh how to introduce a puppy to other dogs and children

Good luck hun xxx
