We have a 5 year old male pitbull (Fatmeg). He's so lovable that we treat him a family member, even included him in our family calendar... He sleeps on our bed with his own pillow and blanket... He's intelligent that he knows his own toys, pillow and bag of his biscuits / denta stix... He sits with us during TV time and would nudge our fathers hand to signal us he's sleepy...He's indeed aggressive to people not familiar to him. The only problem is we can not leave him alone at home even with the radio on as we used to do when he was younger... So when there's a family outing, one of us has to stay with him, haha!

    I have owned a beautiful (and intellignet) brown red-nosed pit bull terrier ( the imperial breed) for 8 years. He is smart, protective and very loving to all members of our family and knows all of their names. I am a firm believer that if you do own a pit bull-PROTECT THEM. They have had enough bad press. Walk them on a leash as much as possible and socialize with them one on one and give them lots of loving affection. They are the BEST breed of pup-EVER!!!! Also. do not let strangers (especially unknown kids) come up to pet them, they are very protecive of their family. Let's give them a chance to have owners who lovingly want to give them GOOD PRESS-they deserve it!!

I had a Westie for 16 years. Her name was Minnie (aka Minnie pearl). She was one of the loves of my life. My best friend. She was kind and loving and gave me so much joy. Her life gave so much to me, I think of my baby every day and wonder if she knows how much i will forever miss her. They are wonderful dogs human like. I now have a cockapoo who I love with all my heart but my Minnie will always be one of my most loved friends i have ever had. Rest in peace my minnie pearl and know your mommy loves you.

I have a west highland white terrier that is after a mouse in my house! If he catches will it hurt him? Give him a disease or anything?

    No! It won't hurt him! It is their nature to go after rodents! We lost our little dog, only 4, to back problems and then paralysis in his back legs - he was the most loyal, valiant, loving dog we have ever owned and looking for another Westie!

We got our Westie (mixed) at the Humane Society. He is so adorable. We have had him since Dec 2011. They said he was a year old. Sometimes when we feed him he gulps everything and does not chew it up then later throws it back up. I noticed in the article I read that they can have hernias. Would this be a cause of his getting sick? We have tried all types of dog foods and he will not eat anything that has beef in it. We have tried the ones with chicken and after reading they like lamb I will try that. The vet at the Humane Society did not say he had anything wrong with him. How can we tell? Thanks for your information on the website!

    Some dogs will eat way too fast and then they do throw it up.  Sits like a brick in their stomach.  Why don't you try mashing up the food a little (so he isn't swallowing whole chunks) and add about a tablespoon of yogurt for digestion and settleing the stomach.  You can also raise his bowl maybe about 6 inches using the stair, a stool etc.  Something stable so he can't knock the bowl over but something a little higher than the floor.  Westies aren't real big but they are pretty bush.  You could also try feeding him twice a day in small amounts rather than once a day with a larger amount.  It would be a good idea to have him checked out and mention this to your vet.

Hi, I just became an owner of a 2. 5 month old rednose. He is so cute. I have a one month old, a 2 year old and 4 year old gd. Children who live with me as well as a 93 year old mother. Will this dog be okay with them? Also, how do I potty train this dog? I do know somethings about training ie. Have hand signals to go with words like 'no', 'sit' and I know they need excercise so I have a yard to play with him in.

    I have two red nosed. They were adults when our first child arrived and it was a source of anxiety for me also. We had a bitch and one of her first puppies. They were 10 and 6 years old...The mother, used to sleep under the cot and if she wasn't inside, she slept at the bottom of the window. Take him to obedience and train him to listen to commands as they can be excitable and they sometimes forget that they are not a maltese! Get your children involved in this training as the dog will then listen to all the family members, not just you.
    Potty training....persistence, take him outside often and tell him to go just like any other dog. We had our girl trained to walk to the door, sit and speak if she wanted to go outside. It is all repetition...and that takes time.

So I have a Red nose pit I don't think she is the American Terrier but when I first got her she was so loving and kind I noticed however when I gave her a bath she nearly flipped she was shaking and trying to flee anywhere she could she also wouldn't come near her water bowl if I were filling it or standing near it while it was full. After a while she lets me bathe and water her but only me I want my boyfriend to be able to do this for her too but even after month of trying she still doesn't trust him, any advice?

    Have your boyfriend reward with treats and play before he tries to bathe or discipline.

I have a 20 month old female English Bull Terrier and I have been in a different country for a little over a year. She has been at my home back in the states. My renters are taking care of her while im away. I was wondering what to expect as far as her behavior towards me and how best to approach the correction of misbehavior if any. I was with her for around 6 months before I had to leave. Of the time I spent with her she is one the best breed of dogs I have ever owned. Any advice will be much appriciated. Thanks

    Do not worry. She should sense or remember you - know somehow that you have been there before. She was pretty young when you left but she will come around. There is no real way to tell fortunes in this world that i know of. She will sense your scent and voice and know something but we can't know what. Just be the same fella you were and give her a few days to come around. Don't correct a misbehavior untill you have rewarded her for postive behaviors. Positive behavior - coming to her name, going potty outside, giving you a kiss, Chilodren and pets both have a way of doing any behavior to get attention whether it be good or bad so if she gets to excited and pees on the floor - not a bad behavior she should be corrected for. Reward before correction. Also remember that people are different in what they believe is a bad behavior in the pets and in their kids. So you don't want to correct her for something the other people thought was an OK behavior. Get to know her again and then gradually trnasfer over to your ideas regarding correction.

I'm thinking of getting a bull terrier, but I dont know if I should because since I'm all day at work and get home by around 7 pm and I wouldn have much time for it..... but I have a huge patio that he can run in all day... should I get one?

    If you are concerned about having enough time to spend with a Bull Terrier - or any pup - you probably should not do it. Yes, he has a patio etc but pups can be extrmely destructive and they require a lot of attention. Maybe waiting until you have more time - might be an answer. A kitten which is more independent and not as destructive? You get home a 7 pm and have to eat, bathe, cook , clean - when would you housebreak train etc. Also, Bull Terriers are extremely pack oriented and don't do particularly well on their own.
