|Maggie-- my foster Shar-Pei Harley also loved kids.
He was somewhat shy with new people and especially men, would keep his distance from strange men until he got to know them, but any kids could run up to him and he'd be very friendly and happy to be petted by them. This may have been due to his past, which was unknown since he was a stray rescue at 5 years old... When my cousin visited with his new baby Harley just loved that kid, and when she was sleeping he'd lay down in front of whoever was holding her at the time and not budge.
He also was protective of the house and car although if someone was invited in he was non-aggressive.
He was ok with my other dogs and cat but had some issues with certain other intact males which seemed to be hormone-related most likely. He was intact when I rescued him and most of the time I had him, so this may have changed after neutering once his testosterone levels went down.
