MK&C ....it does depend on the breed and socializing...I agree. Same with big dogs. But small dogs do tend to be more snappy.

I think it would be the other way around. The smaller the dog the more chance the dog would get hurt with a young child. That's why most breeders of small dogs will not let them in a home with a child under a certain age. Some young children are great with small dogs but in most cases they are a bit to rambunctious for little dogs. True, a poorly socialized small dog can bit nipper, the same can be said with a bigger dog. No more no less.

They're more sensitive to pain than larger dogs, so if a child accidently hurts the dog then the dog MIGHT snap, but I don't consider them to be more snappy. I do agree though, big dogs are a bit better for households with young children.

I have to agree with some of the other posters, would you consider a more medium-sized dog?

That really depends on the breed. Not all small dogs are delicate or particularly sensitive to pain. Many of them were bred to be quite sturdy for various jobs they had to do.

To the OP: If you want a cute, scrappy looking dog with a more mellow temperament than a Jack Russell, look into a Border Terrier. They are small dogs but very hardy and more biddable than most other terrier breeds.

If wanting a smaller type dog I would recommend a Brussels Griffon. They are one of the only small breeds recommended for small children.

Talking dog in Beneful commercial

WOw, thanks for all of the replies. THe commercial I am talking about is the one where the dark haired guy is feeding his dog in the kitchen, the dog is adorable, white and dark brown , long haired, I think a mixed silky terrier breed? Not a jack russel, this dog is a medium to large breed dog.
No, I am not getting a dog strictly on appearance. I want a dog that is 35 pounds or less, that is good with children, I have an 8 year old. My dream dog is to have a dog just like Benji. I grew up loving that dog and he seemed like the dog I would always want. I am perfectly happy with a mixed breed. I prefer a pup, but would definitely go to the shelter, as I have. It seems my local shelter only has pit bulls all the time.

I should have explained myself a little clearer about the size of the dog.

Is it the one where the guy says 'Soooo happy!' to the dog (hah sorry I can't remember the rest)? If that's the commercial your talking about it's a Border Collie. They are NOT for everybody. It would look similar to this:
