He can be a loving dog, when the kids go to bed he is happy to cuddle with us on the couch. I just feel he would thrive and have a better life in a home perhaps with no children. If they are having snacks he has to go in his crate because he'll jump on them and take them, if were in the play room he has to go in his crate because he'll destroy all their toys. Every weekend we are with our families and their dogs at cottages and he has to be crated most of the time as he does not get along well with the other dogs. It is not fair to him, he has aggressive tendencies which we are uncomfortable having around our small kids.
