I'm irritated at this point, Zoeys freaking out
This isn't a good sign, it sounds like you have a lot of work to do with this dog, and should concentrate on training this one before you add another.

Our 14mo. GSD loves kids, and if they get to be too rowdy/close he chooses to ignore them and doesn't "freak out" over them at all.

Sounds like a divorce waiting to happen, uncontrollable kid and wife. This is shocking, my husband knows a family who's dad is a police officer with a K9. I met the family a couple weeks ago, the children we so polite and so respectful and asked before approaching my Molly if they could pet her. Hope you can avoid this crazy family.

If some kid did that to Jax with her 12 wk post op from ACL and hip dysplasia...I would have put the kid on the ground.

My husband ever told me to shut up in front of anyone, he'd be on the ground.

Sounds like all the lights are on, but nobody is home with the family.

Thank you for clearing up what you meant by "put on the ground". That is a term that implies that your dog handled things on its own and, well, put the child to the ground. Shaking off or moving and putting to the ground bring up to totally different pictures.

I disagree with your thinking that you don't need to do anything. I am not defending what the mother did, but you yourself can learn something from this, one, to be more proactive and learn to stop a child from getting to your dog in the first place, and not just standing there waiting for something to happen.

People who make excuses for their dogs annoy me just as equally as parents who make excuses for their kids.

Nope, not saying its mostly your fault. IMO you are just as equally at fault. I understand that it happened fast, and well, things happen, sometimes we have no control over it. That doesn't mean we are excluded from any fault though. Use it as a learning experience to be on your guard next time and except it to happen.

The mother isn't here for any of us to tell what she did is wrong to, so other than expressing my disagreement with her in what she did, not really much more I can say about it.

I disagree. I don't think the dog or owner are at fault in any way. The dog's space was invaded, the dog was physically assaulted in a way by this out of control child under no control by a parent that was present. If you intervene and touch someone else's child, then they can call the police. Yet someone can come up and violate your dog and that's OK? Bull. That kid is going to end up eaten one of these days, and it will be 100% the parents' fault.
