A border collie (that's what, 60 lbs?) vs a Mastiff that's probably over 100 lbs and looks completely different? She's not seeing a dog, she's seeing a beast. Mastiffs are the sweetest dogs but they do look scary, especially if you're a very small person. She is not pretending to be scared for attention, she is scared because that is a HUGE dog. She may warm up over time, but we have family friends that have labs whose kids are afraid of my dog and the size difference is about 60 lbs.

Still there's a lot of kids who aren't afraid of big animals. So it's kind of curious why and I wonder if they could just ask her why she thinks she should be afraid of it. Maybe it's the drool.
My son has no fear of any dog, ever. He goes to the dog shows and cuddles with the mastiffs and Dobermans and Rotties. But butterflies, when he was little there was no nightmare like a winged nightmare.
