We own 6 beautiful dogs 3 of them are pit Bulls, it is true that they can be aggressive towards other dos and animals, however when introduced properly the are very receptive and friendly, most people don't understand how the owner is the one that holds the key in having a well mannered PitBull. As an owner you must be totally dedicated to be constant and have a keen sense for being a responsible owner, Pit Bulls are the most amazing dogs they have a humanlike way for understanding and learning, they are extremely faithful and loving, however you must always stay as the pack leader, when you lose that place they will take advantage of their higher power and control. I invite anyone who wishes to know more about their pittbull to contact me through facebook and or post comments and concerns in this forum.

    Hello, I am so happy you took in this dog rather than purchasing one from a breeder. When a dog is abused it can take a very long time for them to learn the proper way to do things. One of our pits was chained to a tree and abused for the first 8 months of her life, after that she spent time in a foster home that wasn't any better. We got her at 11 months and it took a VERY long time to get her turned around. We had to hand feed her, she constantly had bowel movements in her kennel and she was extremely fearful. We've had her 4 years now and she is excellent with people, animals and fabulous with children, but to this day she still cowers down and pees if I walk past her quickly with a broom because it brings her back to when she was a puppy and what happened. The first couple years with her was so extremely frustrating and I never thought we would see any results, but I promise if you stick with it and have a routine your dog will come around. Have you had your dog checked for worms? Or any other health problems by chance? I also highly recommend getting some professional obedience training for him. Whether it be a place you take him or have someone come to your home. Make sure they have experience with pits. They are absolutely amazing dogs. It's terrible what man has done to them. Another thing I recommend is buying books about pits. I have about 6 or 7 of them just because I wanted to be educated when I got my first pit due to the reputation these poor dogs have. I hope some of this helps you and I wish you the best with your pittie!

I have two Rottweilers and it is all on how you socialize your pet. Any dog can be mean and bite and just because they are big doesn't make them mean. Rottweilers are actually the best breed with children they will protect your child from any stranger and mine in fact would protect a strangers child that is how much he loves kids on another note I have a three yr old rottie who started having seizures and I was reluctant to start her on medicine which is phenobarbital and it will make her very out of it. Instead I chose to go with a holistic approach and recommend it to anyone with issues of seizures with any breed it is called allergic pet.com to get natural meds.

    What can also help is to remember things that happened right before the seizure and see if its usually the same things going on and if you prevent that from happening then note how many times that they will com.

    Dogs are pregnant from 55 - 63 days. So about 55 - 63 days from the time she did "IT" you should have puppies. Congratulations it is fun. It is work but it is fun. Be prepared ahead of time - OK?

I have a white male english bull terrier, I think he's albino because he has green eyes and a pink nose. My issue is with his skin, it's pink, hot, inflamed, smells, and is mostly on his belly, back of ears, and paws. I've tried everything to clear it up: regular vet, homeopathic vet, benadryl, tea tree oil, different lotions and shampoos, mange dips. Please help, considering putting him down so he doesn't have to suffer with the discomfort any longer. He's only 2 yrs old, we've been dealing with this his whole life, and I Love him so much! Thanks TK

    Firstly you can have is pink nose tattooed black. Try to keep him out of the sun as much as possible. Get your Vet to prescribe and ongoing course of Zinplex or some other Zinc supplement which will assist with his skin problem. Do not feed him Wheat, maize, bread bones or bone meal. Feed him on rice and chicken and animal fats, omega 3 and 6 oils (which is also present in fish oily fish). Introduce him to fruit and vegetables.

    Sponge him down with an infusion of "Rooibos Tea" South African Bush Red bush tea, available at most super markets in the UK and America these days.

    Apply the zinc ointment which the cricketers use in hot climes to his nose and the pinna of his ears, if you have to take him out in the sun.

    You might also try using Fissan Paste to the itchy places on his coat.

    Good luck and please let me know how you are getting on. Regard Annelise from Sunny South Africa

    Ok, my bindgle male had it and so did my mums white bitch, she had to have steroid injections. What I did was take him to the vet for antibiotics, don't use flee lotions on him, smear sudacream on the areas that are irritated, leave on for 24 hrs, it doesn't look nice and it rubs off every where, use cotton wool with luke warm water to remove what you can then re apply a few hrs later, do this for a week along side the antibiotics, make sure to keep clean bedding and if his bed is near a radiator then move it as heat can flare this up as well, after a week give him a bath, use baby shampoo on him, I know they say not to use human products on animals but its bull, as long as you make sure that all the soap is it by using a shower head or fill the sick and using that water then its fine, I have had a few dogs and done the same with all of them. Just leave him then for a week or so, it may have to be repeated if his skin is really bad, it may be a pain but it's worth it, it's not nice for them, bulls are known to have skin allergies. I hope it works for you.

    Take lamb out of his diet. I had the same thing and got rid of the lamb and problem disappeared also.

    Hello TK,I have had the same problem with my white bull terrier puppy. She is 7 months old and has had the problem since I got her.I have gone all those routes too.I heard that they give dogs allergy shots,but my dog is younger and its not good to do.I went with holistic route and that didnt work at first either.I keep deducting each thing in all the foods I tried,and what I found was that it was grain/bread items that where doing it,and most holistic has grain too.I cut out everything I redd had bread/grain/flour/yeast items from the food.It worked..I feed my dog Wellness,and it works good,and has a good balance of omegas..but any food should work,as long as u make sure it doesnt have the bread and grain items in it..Try it out..What else do u have to loose...My baby was almost bald,and it was tearing me up,and it seemed like i was just blowing all my money on stuff that was not curing it,i even tried this stuff called new stock,which is some kinda miracle cure for all animals skin..lol..in the end it was something simple..Pease try for a month,and let me know what happens..Good Luck..

    Hey,
    My 12 month old black and white EBT had terrible red itchy skin on his tum and testicles. I tried tea tree ointment from Johnsons which seemed to at least cool it for him, you could see him relaxing as it went on. Rash gone. I think I beat it for him. Then a couple of days later, back came the red itch. Poor boy was going insane. All seemed to reduce when he was castrated. He still has itchy times and we go back to the ointment and I also wash his itchy sections with that pink antibacterial handwash like they use in the doctors, diluted in lots of water. Seems to work for us.
    He also now eats food with no dairy, wheat, gluten and eats fresh apples, carrots etc daily. I hope your baby boy feels better soon. Let us know. Sarah and Ozzy

I've got 2 chihuahuas. 1 is a short coat (female), 1 is a long coat (male). They are very sweet. The only problem is our female is jumping on our male very roughly, because we just got him. I also have 1 daughter and they never nip at her or bite her....

    If your female was there first then she is just showing him who is boss like hey I was here first this is my place my rules she will hump him. I had the same thing happen to my 2 they will try to dominate each other.
  • anne - 2011-09-01
    its okay usually, because even though long haired chihuahuas are very loyal to their owners, they can be sometimes agressive to strangers. that is because they aren't as socialable as dogs like golden retrievers. usually if they are too aggressive and actually seem to hurt each other, it best to separate them for a period of time and wait for your chihuahua to become more use to her surroundings. hope it helps :)

    She must be eating or she would be really lethargic and then not moving. They dopn't eat much - seems impossible how little. If you are giving her that little piece of toast in the morning, that little piece of chicken from your salad for lunch etc - then she isn't eating her food cuz she knows there are better things.
  • KittyandChichi - 2011-08-28
    The other response is very accurate. A little corner of this and that throughout the day will often be equivalent to your dogs daily caloric needs. And little dogs who weigh (on average) four to seven pounds don't require much!
    A quality brand of food intended for the specific breed recommended. Mine eats Royal Canin for Chihuahuas. It was a suggestion by the woman with the rescue who knows the breed very well.
