It must have been a full grown dog, we took in a full grown lab once and it growled and showed teeth for the first week until it got relaxed and use to the new family.He was just scared and confused. After that week he was perfect. For the first week I would not allow my child to do much with the dog other than pet it as I was scared of what the dog may do. A full grown dog is different than a puppy when going to a new house, it takes more time for them to adjust. I sure hope the little child will not have a fear of dogs and will be okay.
