Guess I should introduce myself before starting to ask questions. My name is Bill and I finally got my first pit. My sister has had them for years, but being in the Army we move a lot, and I am forced to rent. I finally bought a house and am towards the end of my career, so it was time. We got a pit hound mix puppy off petfinder. He is one of the smartest dogs I have ever had. We also have a border collie mix (15 years old, and still my best buddy, sorry the pit comes after my old man) A husky (12 years old), two cats (still not sure about the puppy) and a horse, plus some barn cats and chicks. We have started him at Petco with training and he is picking it up amazingly quick for his age. He is only 3.5 months old. He is still being housebroken so at night he goes in the mudroom, where his kennel is. He doesn’t have accidents anymore, but he will eat the house.
