Dogs with good temperament
Bringing a new dog into your home is a big deal. Sure, it's exciting but there are so many factors to consider, especially when you're bringing a dog into a home with kids. Sadly, up to 70 percent of dog bite victims are children, and 61 percent of these bites take place at home or in another familiar place. As scary as this sounds, many of these accidents can be prevented if you take the time to research the breed you are bringing into your home.
