WHS uses a “family rating system” based on a dog’s history and temperament evaluation.
- G: Likely to be appropriate with toddlers and young children. Tolerant, resilient and forgiving.
- PG: Likely to be appropriate with young children, but may not be appropriate with toddlers.
- PG-13: Should not be placed with young children; requires considerate, respectful older kids.
- R: Not to be placed in a home where children live or visit. Dog may have issues with handling, food/toy aggression, or dog-to-dog aggression, or a known history of problems with children.
