Karla you are very fortunate
Some children are just gentle spirits. I've had adults I've had to ask calm down! Squeezing the dogs faces, acting so silly and jumping up and down, trying to get the dogs to bite their hands! Guess who never gets invited back!
We've had some kids run all over the house screaming at times...luckily Riki and Daisy think they are rather funny. A skittish mill dog would not.
Again, they are just discouraging small children in general. The foster mom takes personal situations into account, especially because you have dog experience.
You cannot imagine how many dogs were turned in as aggressive. We find out they had two toddlers under three and a five year old...often torturing the dogs. The dog gets to rescue and turns out to be a sweetheart. So you see why they do what they do.
Karla, why don't you sign up for rescue and you can learn more. I do not foster as I work...but I am in charge of organizing the quilt and advertising. There are many things you can do. You are a passionate lady with experience, dogs, and kids!
I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!
