HOW IS THE ANIMAL WITH CHILDREN?: We don't normally comment on children (from our website). Our pets come from pounds and shelters where they are about to be put down and come with little or no background information. Their interaction with children is unknown and we have no test children to try out with them. We attempt to flag any pets that we would not recommend with children, and we'll do out best to help select the best pet for your householf, however the final decision rests with you.
