Mine likes older kids and tiny babies that just lay there. But toddlers to about 6 or 7 he steers clear of. I think for his own safety. Kids that age are kind of clumsy and move unpredictably. He's trying to keep from being stepped or fell on.

Our Ginger loves our grandchildren they are ages 3 to 7. From day one I taught the kids how to hold her and how to play with her. When they come to visit she runs straight to them. she is 6 months old maybe thats the reason she is so good. She does not bite.

Hunter never cared for little kids until my niece was born. He would tolerate my son, who was 6 at the time Hunter joined our family. Hunter learned my son was here to stay so now they are best of friends. I do not allow others especially young children to pet Hunter unless im close.It is for his protection and security as well as the child's. how he loves sonea, kerran and davan blows me away. They can do anything and he takes it like a champ. He loves them he is the leader of the little people pact.
