Re: bit my 9 month old son
I agree you have a good percentage of dogs that will not bite while awake, can bite when startled while sleeping.
The growl was to let the baby know to back off. The dog has no way of knowing that a baby cannot read the body language, and vocal (growl) noise he is saying. Its hard for us grownups to sometimes read a dogs body language before a growl/bite, a child doesn't stand a chance reading it. Its up to the adults in the household to keep all dog and kid interactions safe. If we fail, kids get bitten, and dogs get put down. Your dog may, or may not be okay with your son as he gets older. There is just no way to see into the future.
You either work out a plan where both can live happy, and safely, or talk to one of your local vizsla rescues.
Not all those who wander are lost.
Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.
Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
