I have 2 males 1 that is blue and another that looks more like a tiger then a dog so I get alot of ppl stopping and asking me to stud them out which I will not do. The controversial part about breeding is b/c of those ppl who don’t even care about pits to begin with. I will not let my dog breed with a female who does not want to. I’ve heard of people holding a female down so the boy can do the trick, or even use a tool calleda “raper”. That is NOT right. Also alot of breeders will let brothers and sisters get caught up. That is part of the reason pits have such a bad rep if you have ever met a pit that was bred of incest they are 10 times crazier and alot of the times mean. The only female my blue boy has ever had pups by is a white female who can only have 2 pups at a time. Each of my 4 grandpups have went to great homes and I know their owners. I can’t imagine giving a pit bull to a person that would fight them or abuse them.
I give my pits the dog food with the highest amount of protein and fat. I go to my local southern states (farm store) and buy the sport kind with 24%fat and 20% protein. And it fattens them up real nice like. Plus it is only $16.99 for a 40lb. bag.November 30, 2010 at 8:44 pm in reply to: Is my Pit mixed? & how can I determine age of puppy? #16288
Your Pup looks full blooded. One way to tell is the head. It is a simple fact that pits are big-headed so if your dog looks like his head is too little for his body that is a sure sign he’s mixed. Another way to tell is his coat the shorter the fur the more pure-bred. Also look at his paws I have always known pits by their feet. Does his toes look almost like fingers. Pits usually have a good firm grip as if they were spreading their toes out intentionally. And I think he may be about 6 or seven months. He looks about the same age as my pit, Wicked, who is 6 months.
P.S. your pup is very cute
I love pit bulls and Ive been around both loving and aggressive pits. So I think it really depends on both of the dogs. In my personal opinion I have always felt that a female pit can be a little more temperamental then male pits. Put it this way me and my brother used to live together and he had a female pit named Ayla. Ayla was raised from a puppy and was sweeter than sugar(Her boyfriend was my Chihuahua) then I rescued a 8 week old female pit. After nursing the pup back to health I began to let her socialize with Ayla. One day I came back from the store and when I was unlocking my door I could hear the sounds of a fight. I walked in to find my pup pinned to the wall by Ayla. When we separated the dogs there was blood every where and Ayla had not only crushed my pups ribs but also separated the spinal cord from her spine. It was a sight I will never forget, so I don’t want that to happen to you. I’m not trying to discourage you but you need to think of them like pairing up human roommates. Are both dogs dominant? If one dog was to get aggressive would the other surrender? Are they too much alike or too different? Just think it through carefully.
That says a lot about the director of animal RESCUE you are supposed to save these dogs not damn them
I think that if you feel that your dog needs a jacket get him/her one. I used to do the same thing with one pit I had. But he was shivering I was just overprotective. Plus it makes people feel more comfortable coming up to a pit for some reason. The only con I see to you getting it a jacket is that you live up north where it gets really cold the dog will need to get used to the weather where as I live in the south. Really you know whats best for your dog.
