Hello, can any one give us some advice? We have a lovely 2 year and 9 month bull terrier, she is a very good dog, we moved home 9 months ago and in the first few months she was acting very old, very possessive over certain items (furniture ) in the house. We need she wouldn't be perfect with the move and were told by the et this is normal and give her time... She settled down great, but not 9 months on she is doing the same thing, first it was a lazy boy chair, would sit on it but then stare at it, like it was ready to get her, we have moved this and she wasn't happy, tried to attack it, now it's the old little things, the clothes maiden even my feet :-( can any help? Thank you :'-(

We adopted a dog through the Cell Dogs program at a prison and she is listed as a lab/terrier mix. She resembles the red nose pit pictures I have been looking at. Anyone willing to view her pictures via email and let me know?

    Ok thanks..I will try and find a breeder around here and see if they are willing to check her out for me. Yes the Humane Society that runs the Cell Dog program was afraid no one would adopt her, so they listed her as lab/terrier mix. She is 16 months olds, very intelligent..she is crate trained and also hand command trained...We love her to death!!

    Sure, upload your pictures:) Not sure how much help we can be, it really helps if you know her breeding background. But either way, we'd love to see her!

I just read that bull terriers were not good with cats, or other pets. My oldest bullie Rich certainly proved entirely otherwise to me. A girlfriend of mine came back into my house carrying an infant kirry. Evidently the kitten had been exiled by her mother. Talk about nurturing; my male has always slept on his back on my couch. I had to go to work, so when I got home the kitty was lying on his stomach, nursing on his unit. Friends for life. I have since gotten a female bullie for breeding, and companionship. She is now retired, and the kitty, now 7 years old, and the female bullie have become great friends after many spouts over my males attention. Good times, funny stuff!

    Bull terrier pups won't wean from their mothers any earlier than 3-6 weeks of age. If you are trying to feed a 1 week old pup, you have a job on your hands. The stomach problems are most likely from an incorrect formula. Esbilac puppy milk is a great formula choice and readily available in pet stores. A baby this young will need feedings about every 2 hours around the clock, which will become less as she ages. If she doesn't do better right away I suggest you take her to a vet, they have the equipment and expertise to deal with babies this young.

Pit Bulls are not dangerous animals. They are a reflection of their owner. If the owner is aggressive then the dog is mean. It's like the old saying, "The gun doesnt kill people, people kill people". Its not the dogs fault if it's trained to kill, it's the person that trained it. Chris H.

    Well I totaly agree. I have a red-nose pit and his name is Tank. He loves to be around people and he is nice to everyone well except to people that treat him wrong and that never happened before, when we leave him at home when we go on trips is that normal?

    I disagree. I had a Pit Bull. I got him at 6 weeks old. He was the sweetest thing ever. I had him for 4 yrs. He was always handled gently. I only gave him possitive reinforcment. He would roll over for a belly rub any time a child came around. One day totally unprovoked he bit a family friend. OK so he tore him apart and the man needed plastic surgury. The man was well known to the dog. The dog liked him. I had to put my sweet baby down. Anyone who says its not the dog its the owner....has just been lucky so far. Pit bulls are totally unpredictable!

    What dogs are predictable? I was bitten by a chow. He belong to a dear friend. I had been around and interacted with the dog several times prior to the incident. Just that day, I went to answer the phone and he attacked. I believe it was the quick movement on my part. At the time I had a chow myself when the incident occurred. Are all chows bad? NO! You are stating that all pit bulls are bad because of your situation. The way it sounds to me, you did not have control over your dog. The same as my friend, she loves her dog, but her dog lack obedience and she lacked controlling him. You as a dog owner should know your dogs temperment, likes and dislike and their body language. The dog most likely gave some sign that something was not right, you and the person who was bit did not notice it. Plus you have to remember they are not human they are still dogs not people. You can love your dog, but you have to maintain control over your dog especially around people. It's best to make sure your dog is properly trained and socialized.

    Thank you, I love my pitty and for the lady that said pitt bulls are vicious and unpredictable...like you said what dog isn't? The dog wasn't unpredictable...you were...you never trust the dog therefore the dog never trusts you. And that person must of done something to the dog for him to attack him...dogs don't forget faces just like us humans don't.

Hello my name is john, I have a family of 4 my wife and two daughters 5 & 6. We all work and go to school we're home by 3:45 every day but in the mean time my mother inlaw lives with us. She is 70 years old, she is still moving around and what not but I heard of bull terriers being loyal to family I was wondering if it would be ok to have one with a woman her age?

    I think the dog would be fine, and actually an excellent addition. But I would ask you mother-in-law what she thinks about it, as it will be her constant companion. She may be very happy for the company, and the dog would have a companion too. Could be a win-win situation, but it must be a welcome addition for her.
