I have a 4 year old bull terrier male. Very loving and spoiled! We got an 8 week old femal bull terrier 5 days ago, and our male usually doesn't like other dogs! I have been indroducing him to her by putting her on my lap and letting him smell her. He sniffs her and his tail is wagging, he seems happy, but I can't put the puppy on the floor then he wants to jump on her. Or when she barks at him and growls he looks pretty upset and looks as if he wants to go for her. What can I do about this? And must I wait until she is about 7 months to stand her ground before I leave them to see if they will bite or play with each other?

    Sounds like they are still getting to know each other, but they are well on their way to being good friends. How cool is that!

Hi, I have an 11 month bull terrier and I am in the process of changing her diet, I've been boiling organic chicken and rice and mixing it in with her blue buffalo puppy food. Itss been well over 2 weeks and she's been fine till today. She vomited every where, my questions are should I not give her white rice? Or even chicken? And when I switch to adult food next month should I still mix it with chicken and rice? Or should I just mix the rice and chicken with fresh veggies?

    Hi, when changing a dogs diet it should be done slowly. Mixing new food 1 /3rd into old food then eventually 2/3rds and 3. I recommend premium dog foods if you want your friend to thrive not just survive. A balanced diet of large raw dog bones once a week {never leave dog unattended with bones } help to clean teeth and is natural to them. Dry food and occasional wet food. Remember too much wet food creates plark ending in rotten unhealthy teeth.

I've had this full blooded real red nose pit since 3 months old. Now 2 years old female full ears tail. And fertile are you telling me this breed is that rare? Biggest baby on the planet have plenty of pictures to prove it.

I am confused. A reputable breeder I trust told me there is no such thing as a red-nose pit bull strain and that byb are selling them as 'rare' to just make money. She said many red-nose pitbulls are born and they are not rare, just have noses of a different color...and that they do not descend from the the old family reds.

    Going back about 100 years there was a red nose pitt bull and they were being actively bred.  Because of the rarity, it was hard to find mates to assure that the line continued and now many say the line (breed) is probably extinct.  However, there are still some around.  As to whether they are directly descended from the Red Nose Pitt Bull being actively bred 100 years ago - I don't know.  However, they do exist, they are around and it is difficult to find a mate for them to insure the coloring.  Can someone just by chance come up with the coloring and the pup not be from the original breed - that is possible.  These are images of red nosed pitt bulls but as to whether they are from the original line - I have no idea

    It isn't just the nose that was red in the orignal breed it is 'The lips, nose, face, eyes, legs and toe nails are all red in color that can give a very exquisite and captivating look.'  Hope this helps.  So there is what there was 100 years back and what there is.

Hey my name is Bobbi-Jo and my boyfriend & I have a beautiful pitbull named KOBE! He is amazing in every way possible! HE is extremely loving and well behaved! We also have cats-which he loves too...we actually raised kittens with him around all the time! In fact the kittens preferred to sleep with him! He played with them and watched over them! Anyways I would love to help you with your fight against PITBULL HATERS-as the saying goes people are scared of what they don

I have a female red nose who is 11 weeks old n she is the most amazin baby, sweet as can be. very hyper around strangers but also very protective around the house which is what i want. i had her since she was a week old. all dogs r unpredictable but i have no fear of her at all. im still in the process of training her but she knows basic commands; sit, stay, shake, down. she is also well potty trained. i had her in the kennel since she was a month n she is doin very well. She goes to the door n sits then walks to me n barks, lettin me kno she has to go out. she is super smart n learns quickly. i have no regrets in my decision on ownin a red nose pitbull.

    They have a bad rap, due to the protective purpose they were bred for. But those that are kept as pets really shouldn't as they are wonderful, loving and loyal. Glad to hear your story, it's inspiring.

You know what always pisses me off, when people start saying that pitbulls or rottwielers (sorry dont know how to spell that) ect. are mean and aggresive dogs, because the truth is any dog can be aggresive. It's all based on the owner. I mean you don't see people bad-mouthing wiener dogs or yorkies when they bite someone. Anyway didn't mean to yell at anyone just wanted to express myself

    Some dogs are easier to train than others.  Some humans take the necessary time to train their pups and some don't.  Different breeds of dogs are know to have different dispositions and maybe because they are hunters, or fighters, or just larger - they need a human that is able to provide quality training.  Many humans can train a poddle for example as they are eager to please where possibly a pitttbull needs a firmer or more experienced trainor.  Parrots have different personalities and some are just so easy to have as pets and require no training to speak of.  Some are a little stubborn.  So yes, it is based on the owner and it is also based on the personality of the breed or species.

    You are right when you say any dog can be aggressive. But what a lot of 'pitbull' owners don't understand is that terriors are naturally dog aggressive. It does have a lot to do with how the dog is raised. But 'pitbull' owners need to always be aware of the terrior in them and understand their dogs body language to hopefully prevent any negative reactions from their dog.
