So i own my dream dog now a Bull Terrier he is 11 months old i got him 5 months ago. i live with my mom and my nephew who is 8. Well my mom is obviously a little afraid of cesar just becuase of how he looks i suspect and my nephew has always been frightend a little by all dogs. Cesar is very very gentle and sweet but of coarse he is still young and still in training before he came to me he had NO trainign what so ever. well i litterly have to babysit him no matter where he is in the house if im in the living room and he walks out into the kitchen to eat my mom yells at me "whats he doing?? go check on him" sometimes my nephew tries to play with him and gets him excited so cesar jumps up to lick my nephews face boy does my mom ever go insane "DID YOU SEE THAT!! hes going to attack him!!!" shes constantly asking me "why did he pick up that shoe?" uh becuase hes still learning whats ok to chew and whats not "why is he making that noise while he chews on a bone??? is he being aggressive??" no mom he is chewing bits of the bone off its a normal sound hes fine "why did he jump on the couch with shane (my nephew) is he trying to guard the couch shane get off now before he attacks you!" uh no he jsut wants to be with people and be petted just ask him to get off and he will. well tonight i took him for a walk and as we were walking 3 cars in succsession blared on there horns going past us very very close it frightend cesar and he was alert from being afraid i got into the yard and my mom and my nephew were in the yard and my nephew was wearing a black hooded jacket you could not bearly see him in the dark jsut hear him and cesar started barking at him untill he got a wiff of my nephew and stopped. my mom told me to take him down into my room and lock him up as he is "getting way too aggressive" i swear this dog has never ever bitten or even tried to bite anyone he doesnt even jump up on kids unless like my nephew who holds the ball over his head and starts jumping around cesar yelling at him "cant get it cant get it" and even then cesar doesnt just go crazy jumping up he just jumps up to lick his face a little doesnt even go for the toy. im just so so sofrustrated becuase i keep asking ym mom why seh is so afraid of cesar and she insists she is not and how much she adores him its just really stressing me out htat she keeps acting like this shes the one making ym nephew afraid of him too! and i dont want my nephew going around telling people "my aunts dog is aggressive and tries to attack me" cesar isnt! shane could walk up to cesar and put his hand in that dogs mouth while hes got a meaty bone and that dog would just be giddy with happiness! how do i know that for sure? becuase the breeders who i got him from had little kids who i SEEN play in the dogs food bowls while cesar ate and he would stop and lick them! its just very very stressful!
