Will you please enlighten us as to why you're worried he'll bite your daughter? Has this dog shown any signs of human aggression? Or are you just going off stereotypical information from the media? I'm sure we can help you in some way if you give us further details. You say he's 3... 3 what, years, months? We can point you in the right direction as far as training and health and nutrition, if needed. As was previously stated, food will not bulk him up and give him that athletic look you're looking for; that's more dependent upon his genetics and a good workout routine, just like with humans.
I'd like to welcome you to the pack, and I do hope you enjoy your stay on our yard. Please be sure to post up some pictures, so we can fawn over him, and help you to assess if he's at a good weight or not.
