I am just stating my opinion that I think mother dogs are aggressive when mothering pups. And I wasn't talking about fatal attacks. Just aggression in general.

I don't know any dogs that are aggressive when mothering pups. My mum knows several breeders and visits the mother dogs and puppies and they are always happy to see her.

The word I would choose would be protective, not aggressive.

Depends on how hard they bite, but nips from hamsters hurt more. Yet dogs do more damage.

My neighbors family shih tzu bit my daughter for no good reason very recently .outside.. And near my front door .. Would I trust anyone else's dog around my kids alone .. No.. My dog .. Most certainly .

My cousin had a Rottweiler that had a litter and she wouldn't let anyone near them and they had to get into her kennel to remove a pup that died.

There's always the possibility of getting hurt with everything you do in life. Even getting out of bed in the morning. That's neither here nor there.

But you aren't family so it's really not the same thing.

In my experience, the key is to watch the animal's body language, if you feel the animal is upset in any way, remove the animal from the situation.

My point...leaving any child with any animal is wrong.

I know, but even a sweet, famil dog could attack/be aggressive towards anyone.

General aggression and aggressive when mothering pups are two different things. Saying that it was your opinion and experience that motherly dogs are more likely to turn aggressive indicates you were talking about general aggression otherwise you would have specified "when nursing pups". You mentioned the friends dog biting you. What experience do you have with motherly dogs turning aggressive?
