Before a dog's training has set in, it can be a chore to do simple things like taking him/her for a walk. This is exacerbated with pit bulls, as they tend to be strong and can resist you pull more easily, leading to frustration, injury, and a loose dog. It's important not to go forward if the dog is pulling. It just reinforces the behavior, and they will be more likely to do it again.
Since a big part of this site is to encourage adoptions, we wanted to make sure everyone was aware of the dangers of dog parvovirus.
Parvo is deadly in puppies. It involves vomiting and diarrhea, which has a strong stench, even more so than normal dog feces. At the same time, the dog loses their appetite, since they can't keep any food or water down anyway. Be on the watch for these symptoms.
