Maggie has a handler she is use to, let the kids acompany the handler then you come in a couple minutes latter, everything will be fine, give maggie treats and spoil her rotten, life is good with a boxer. I didn't know how Lt would act with kids but the neighbors let me know he was wonderful with her boys one afternoon when I got home from work. Her boys are 1.5, 3, and 6 yrs old. Also the breeder I got Justice from brought her newbon over, put the baby in the floor and Justice laid right beside him for most of the visit. I've never heard of a boxer having a problem with a baby or young child. Hope this helps ease your mind.
