We have had Bailey since she wad 6 weeks old. She is amazing with kids and let's our baby crawl all over her and pull her hair and ears. She is almost a year old and is a typical German Shepard. Great guard dog and tons of energy. With our young family and how busy we are we just don't have the amount of time we hoped we would for her. She takes treats so gently out of our kiddos hands. We have an older dog as well and she is very submissive.
