Yes, the dog will be a major shedder. The dog should do fine with your son, but you must train the dog to respect children and when your child is old enough to teach him to respect dogs. The Pekingese/Pomeranian mix breed of dog is of low-average intelligence, so consistency is the best thing for training for this breed as they can be hard to train. There is no indication that your dog will be sick all the time, but there are health problems with the two breeds. The average life-span would be 12 - 15 years.
