Hi, I'm Andrea, and I joined today. Harley is my canine companion. She is about 12 months and her breed is a bit uncertain. I was told she's an American/English Bulldog mix. It matters not B/c she's my baby and I LOVE HER! She came from a high kill shelter after her uncaring owner left her and her sister outside in December for three days until neighbors notified autorities. They were both frostbitten. She is now eternaly grateful for her loving family. She and my daughter are best friends. I get a bit upset when people urge me never to leave them alone together, or to let my daughter cuddle with her, they think Harley may snap. I feel I know my dog and it would never happen. Is it ever safe to let the family dog play unsupervised with your children? I did with my dog as a child. Am I being naive and asking for trouble? What do you guys think? Thanks for your help.
