Dogs are man’s best friend. They are faithful and strong defenders of the home, plus most breeds have a compassionate demeanor. This makes them a perfect friend for those seeking companionship. However, not all dogs are perfect for families. The reason is that while dogs can be loving creatures they do not all share the same temperament. This can be a problem if the family in question has young children that may not know how to play with animals. If a child was to play roughly with a dog, then depending on the breed, the dog may bite back. This is not the case with all breeds of dogs. Some are patient and gentle while others tend to react negatively.
