Looking for a nice family dog that wont attack the neighbors kids.  Wiston looks like a nice dog.  The only problem is all these dogs have MIXED in their breed.  A closer look at some looks like pits.  Any comments on how to tell if any of these would be great family pets around children.  Can you get them tested.  May be picking up Wiston Monday.

Most dogs at a shelter do pass a basic test to be available for adoption.  There are NO guarantees to what an ANIMAL will do.  With proper socializing, exposure and training any dog will do good with children.  I have adopted 2 dogs and they both LOVE kids.  Any kid that walks by or that they see makes their tails wag.  Be sure you are ready to devote the time and effort to work with and train your dog.  Be sure that any children that are around your dog treat him well, and he has a positive experience with them.  Good luck.  (even if some "look" like pits that should not influence your decision.  Raised properly pitties are wonderful family pets)  I have figured out that most people do not know what a pit is or isnt, but rather what the MEDIA tells them a pit is.
