my jack bit my child

my 5year old Jack Russells is unneutered. we brought home another dog and the nightmare began. Two days later my two year old was playing with our knew dog and our Jack Russells charged her-bitteing her in the face. We are saddly getting rid of the dogs. My question is: If we neuter our Jack Russell would it prevent him from attacking my child?

Jack Russell bit child NEW
by: Beth

It sounds like your Jack was acting out of jealousy from the other dog. However, it's pretty serious that your child was bit. It's hard to know if it wouldn't happen again even with the neutering. If your Jack never bit anyone before the other dog arrived, then maybe it was because of that. If you do decide to go forward with the neutering (which could definitely help), make sure the other dog is out of the picture. And then, I would make sure your 2 year old is never alone with your Jack. Children under the age of eight should never be left alone with a dog.
