I came home from work today and my wife told me alittle story.She watches some small kids during the day.The dog is great with them.One is a one year old that is just learning to walk the other one is a 4 year old boy that just runs and plays with him all day.Well the 4 year olds mother came to pick him up and she brought her 12 year old daughter with her.The daughter is one of those gothic dressing girls,all black thick eyeliner wtc.Well,Cole,our dog did not like this and ran from her.So her mother called Cole over so say hi,he loves her.Well the daughter bent down to pet him and cole showed teeth and growled at her.My wife jumped up and flipped him on his side and told him to lay down and stay.The dog urinated all over the floor.Now me not being home I could not have done anything.I would have told the girl to ingore him and not to force the subject.Was my wife ok how she reacted?I think she should have instructed the girl much better.This is the first time he has ever growled and shown teeth.Kinda scary.I have noticed that the breeder I got him from has a boyfriend who dresses the same way and yells at the dogs.I was imformed from friends that he has hit the dogs before.Maybe thats why he is acting weird around people dressed in all black.I got him from the breeder at 10 weeks so maybe he just saw this hopefilly he was never hit.How would you all deal with this?

I would have told her to ignore him and such but I was not at home.I feel bad he is very shy but warms up VERY quickly.I can have him in a roomfull of people 20 plus and he will go from person to person,seemed to be getting better then this.I think the big difference is people are sitting and he walks to them this girl walked to him when he was uneasy and my wife let her.
