Ok finally a person that will answer your question. W/O cutting and pasteing from other web sites.
I am taking care of my good friends Fox Terrier for the summer. I love him, he is easy to train, and very willing to please. He just don't get a long with my Schnauzer but they are getting over it.
If you looked up Wheaten Terrier, most sites say that they are good with kids. From what I have seen they can be excellent with kids. This is a dog that loves to play.
. My Schnauzer is excellent with kids, he gets so excited when my wife's nieces come over. I trust him that he would not bite, with out double in my mind. But I have ran into some many people that tell me that they had a Schnauzer, and they hated kids. They also bite.
While walking my dog on the beach last week. I ran into a man walking a Wheaten, and the dog was very aggressive. I like WOW I never saw a Wheaten behave like that.
But to get to the point I would suggest a Wheaten terrier. Like any dog, socialize early and you will never have a problem. Most people that have aggressive dogs never take them out of the house. They don't how to act around other dogs. I seen first hand raising my Schnauzer. As I socialized him more less aggressive he became.
Both dogs are not any harder to train then the average dog. Terrier learn quick, and then like to challenge you to see if you will give them a treat without them doing what you asked. But thats another issue for another question.
