oh wow!! Your baby pit is beautiful!! Glad to meet another rescue family. My girls are both rescue dogs. Our first was abandoned in a forest (she has one eye and was severely malnourished) and the second we rescued to save not only her (who was moments away from being put down by the previous owners) but by rescuing her, we were able to open a spot for a dog that was sentenced to die that same day.
It is wonderful to see that there are others out there that have a big heart for these fantastic dogs.
ps. people think my baby girl Marley looks just like pete from the little rascals too! haha
We got a second pit after we heard a tragic story about two dogs getting put down. We took one and the other went to another family. It’s been about 2 months now and the pits (mine and the new one) love each other. We will find them cuddling when we walk into a room.
We have noticed that the first one we got (we had her for 1yr before getting the second) has become “wiser” now. We think she is acting as a mama to the second. They both behave very well and we hadn’t even noticed how far we had come with training until we got a second. I think they see what is bad/good by how we react to the other.
Definitely get a second, although training is always a challenge, if you have one dog already trained, it really helps. I wish you the best of luck with your pits.
ps. Both dogs are female and neutered and are about 4months apart in age.June 30, 2010 at 1:25 am in reply to: Princess Buttercup – Humane Education pittie NEEDS a home! #15446
Did Princess Buttercup ever find a home? She’s a beauty.
WOW what a great question. I did the same. We rescued a pit and then rescued another after about a year. The second was food aggressive (because of a nasty old dog that use to growl at her while eating at her 1st home–before she was rescued) We separated their bowls about 20feet apart, fed at the same time and scolded if they got too close to one another. 2months later– both dogs eat fine and even can have their bowls next to each other. I think it also helped that we have food in the bowls constantly. The oldest dog wont eat if not hungry which helps a little. Good luck with your beauties!
Love. My Marley was so lethargic after her neuter, she just looked so tired! We just cuddled with her until she recovered from the surgery and after we took it easy for a few days. Good luck with your pup!!
The pup seems like she needs some energy release, have her chew on a toy and if she bites you/your fam, spray her (gently) with a spray bottle. It startles the dog and they learn. Congrats on the red nose! They are adorable!
