Pup harassing my other dog

I have a lab mix and we think she is part pit. She is very loveable but also quite skiddish when it comes to repremand but in other ways she acts as if your repremands didn't even exist. She's very strange. So there is not a lot that she responds well to. She has gotten into the habbit of harassing my other dog who is 5. Roxie, can not eat drink, snack or sleep without Faith (the pup) bothering her. I don't want to kennel Faith all day long but I don't know how to get her to settle down. She responds to her name when she feels like it. I'm so frustrated and I don't know what to do.

I have a 3 year old pitbull that no matter what we do we cant keep in our backyard during potty and play time. We have a 7ft fence so she was jumping the neighbors fence. We then ran the 7 ft along their fence and she learned to climb the tree by the fence. So my husband cut the trees. Then she chewed through the fencing on the gate and climbed through. We doubled fenced the gate and then most recently she has begun going under the fence! We don't know what else to do.

DA issues might happen...i think

Hi all!

First post. I became I big fan of Pit Bulls after my daughter rescued a brindle male from a shelter over a year ago.  I was skeptical at first but the more I learned about the breed and the more I saw him and saw how devoted, loyal and loving he is to my daughter I was won over.

He is almost two, smart, knows basic commands, and housebroken.... well that is until recently.

help !!!! please
