Is it appropriate to have a pet in the family that will be obviously larger and stronger than all three children and constantly contact them? Some people think that this is a bad and dangerous idea, but the example of the California Fisher family refutes such fears. When it became clear that the third child would be a boy, they decided to have a neutral animal suitable for children’s games. At first it was about ponies, but then they got to consult a professional dog handler.
Experts explained that the best choice for their case is a Newfoundland dog. Big enough and strong enough to take care of herself and protect her little master. But at the same time it is guaranteed safe for children, which is confirmed by both practical experience and breed standards. And so what if visually the «puppy» looks like a monster next to the baby?
First, a one-year-old Ralphie appeared in the Fisher family, a year later the same Boss joined him. For the eldest son, Lenox, they are partners in active games. The average Cruz treats them like living soft toys, and for the youngest Tigan, two huge guide dogs to the big world. The kid, without any embarrassment, learns to imitate adults with the help of dogs. For example, walking them and brushing their teeth.
The weight of one pass is approaching 70 kg, the second is already more than 80. Massive, reliable and authoritative assistants of mom and dad, who will not spoil, but there is not a shadow of a doubt that they can harm the child. To a neighbor’s dog or an annoying passerby — perhaps, but in their family these giants are all tenderness and good-nature.
