Poor guy...

I've always found it hilarious how these animals seem to naturally understand that there is a child, and they're different from adults. They watch out for the kids, almost as if they're their own. Even out in the wild you have stories of kids getting lost and they'd be found with some animal watching them.

It's interesting.

On that note, my dog is kind of sketchy while on leash when meeting other dogs but if it's a puppy I know she'll be good. She knows it's just a dog version of a little kid.

A pretty simple explanation is that animal (and human) brains are hardwired to adore and protect their offspring, when they see something they identify as a baby they want to protect it. Most mammal infants have very similar ways of triggering this reaction (large "cute" eyes, crying), that's why the dog is being patient with the human child, and why people find puppies cute.

That explains it. Reminds me of how when you're talking about us humans finding puppies cute, apparently elephants think humans are cute. No joke. They did some tests and the same brain activity activated for "I think this is cute" is present when an elephant is observing one of us.

An elephant of all things...

Serves him right for being on the furniture.

This. No being in the kitchen either. And no making eye contact or being nearby while humans are eating. And no casting eyes or ears towards human food. We have thought crime in this household.
