That's the important thing. Just be careful to look for signs of agression. My sisters dog is very agressive with kids and strangers. See, I raised this puppy which makes me feel aweful. She was never around strangers or kids for the first two months of her life and my sister doesn't have kids either and is a housewife so, long story short, we screwed her up and now we have to fix her. She still growls at my neices but now if she is made to face the kids she will avoid instead of attack which is better.
My basset on the other hand, she was in four or more homes and abandoned to us. She is very anxious about everything but worst is her seperation anxiety. She crys and crys. She loves everyone but by her actions I think she wasn't being fed. She has minimal food/social manners where she gets mildly agressive with my other two. I think she had to fight for her food. She is learning though. They all do with love and discipline. Now if she gets that type of body language I can snap my fingers and she will calm down and sit patiently instead of attacking the food.
Keep yourself clean and bright, for you are the window through which you must see the world.
