The other day my daughter was eat a cake at the kitchen side whilst the dog looked on. My other daughter came up behind and stroked the dog and he turned and bit her on the side of her had. He drew blood and her hand did swell, she needed antibiotics. My husband has said that we need to get rid of him cause he does not trust him now. (He is a Shar pei) I feel sick at the thought and the children are devastated we have had he for 5 years now. Any advise.

If this is the first and only negative experience with your dog in 5 years then it would be an over reaction to get rid of the dog. I can understand this would leave you shaken, but it sounds to me as if this situation could be easily avoided again, especially if you got some good advice from an expert.

I wouldn't get rid of him on the strength of that one incident. I'd get some help from a behaviourist, who might be able to explain why he did it.
