Bruno the Boxer was in the x-pen because he was recovering from knee surgery.

I describe this video as controversial based on the comment section. Those people who cannot read a dog's body language and are used to hyper dogs sometimes mistake Spencer's calm as not happy, or the baby's swing of his hand as the baby being allowed to beat on animals, when in reality this only happened once. Notice how Spencer did not even flinch. It was the first time Spencer had been close and personal with a baby. Not just that baby but any baby. A lot of people do not understand that in the dog world space is respect. Spencer gives the baby his space and is happy to do so. His entire body language is calm, happy and relaxed.

For all of the comments about the baby being left alone with the dog, obviously there was someone holding the camera along with Amie who was even closer to the baby.

Spencer the 14 month old American Pitbull Terrier meets a 14 month old baby for the first time. Spencer has seen babies from a distance but this was the first time he had one this up close and personal. When the baby first showed up he had done his happy dance and rudely started to lick the baby all over. Right from the start we set the boundaries with Spencer. Be calm and no licking or being too pushy. Respect the baby's space. Spencer gave some tongue flicks at us at times because what he really wanted to do was to lick that babies face up, but we told him he must not be so pushy. That was a challenge for him. Once we set the boundaries it was as if Spencer the Pit Bull grew up with babies all his life. He was excellent with the baby. Bruno the Boxer was still recovering from his ACL surgery so he was restricted to his X-pen, but he loved the baby too. For those of you worried because the baby stepped on the dog and swung at his snoot, the baby never actually touched the dog with his hand. The point of the video was to get Spencer's true reaction on video. The baby lives with his own dogs and was taught to respect them. If you notice, Spencer could have cared less what the baby did.
