Taurrine aids in muscle recovery. It allows the muscles to regain all of the energy needed. Since I have posted this, I have switched her to Blue Buffalo dog food. Omg… that stuff is AMAZING!! After about a week I noticed she was more defined and it did wonders for her skin and coat. We live on a farm and she is always running around! I have decided not to add any supplements It looks like good food is all she to her diet for her muscles. good food is all she needed. 🙂
I have a Min Pin (Zuko), a cat (Azula), and our Pit (Katara)… Katara has shown signs of the prey instinct as well. She is about 2 years old and loves chasing the cat around. She is always very playful about it though. As far as Katara’s attitude towards Zuko goes, she seems to get a little rougher with him. We never leave the two alone together. They do very well together when they play outside and even nap together. We live on a farm and my pit is very curious with every small animal that pokes its head out. I feel this is normal behavior. I would recommend some training and being very firm with your dogs actions. If a certain behavior is unacceptable, you need to make sure your dog knows it. With a little patience and some time, hopefully you will see a positive outcome. There is nothing wrong with supervised play or separating animals when left unsupervised. Katara is a social butterfly! But as her owner, I always supervise her play dates. She doesn’t need to be blamed for anything if it isn’t her fault! I love my Pit Bull and only want a positive impression left behind.
This is the full link to the article. It was a very interesting read. It amazes me that in 23 years, societies outlook is still very similar. I agree that the cover is misleading. The story is more factual than not. The writer did his research for sure. It kind of upsets me though. Every owner is responsible for training their dog properly and making sure it is a civilized dog. I have found a new passion from adopting Katara. I promise that I will never let her become what so many people believe she is. She’s not a monster. Thank you for sharing this article.
Agreed! The only thing I feared when getting a Pit was the big Target she had on her! And she has a better behavior than most peoples kids! Any dog can be raised vicious! Even my mosquito of a Min Pin. Owners do need to take responsibility for their dogs’ actions. They are raising them! Do it right! About the magazine, do you have a link to that article? It would be interesting to look into it.
Well, you learn something new everyday! Here in Colorado, vets will not crop the tail after the age if 2 weeks. It is a cosmetic thing. However, they will “amputate” the tail if it is badly broken or is life threatening. My pit has a crazy tail that’s always going! I rescued her and it looks like it has been broken 3 or 4 times. I’m taking her to the vet today to get it looked at. From what I’ve read, it is not uncommon for them to break their tails on walls and such. Congrats on the new pup! You are sure to love it!
Honestly, I’m more worried about my Mini getting out of line than my Pit. Katara is very calm and super social with everyone. The part that scarese with her is the strength in her jaw. Zuko is like a mosquito and seems to push my Pit over the edge. I know on time they’ll be fine. Just a lot work ahead of us!
What are your thoughts on spending time with both of them next to me? Ive been trying to show them that we can be one big happy family. I also try to be very equal with the love I give them. Not picking a favorite will probably be beneficial. I give them both individual attention as well. And you’re right… little dogs need that ego fix. My Min Pin has always tried to be dominant with other dogs. Unfortunately for him, my Pit has already put him in his place. I will make sure I am very firm with them. Thank you for the feed back. 🙂
