I got my english bull terrier about 3 months ago, his coat was in good condition but he has gone very flakey with a few scabby lumps, he also has terrible wind is this normal? I spoke to 1 person and they said theirs was the same, what is the best food to give them?

    My bull terrier had flaky coat and scabby lumps. I took her to the vet and it was a thyroid condition. Two pills a day for the rest of her life but it cleared up her skin and coat within a month.

I had a westie growing up. She was THE BEST dog ever! She was very loving and had such a personality! And though we didn't have cats when she grew up she had no problem in her later years when we did get one. I miss her dearly she lived until she was 17.

    They are good pups. Very intelligent, even tempered, not barkers, affectionate.

I have had pit bulls in the past, and still own two now. They are the epitome of what a dog should be. I encourage anyone that is interested in a dog that is loyal, energetic, and a good protection and family dog to get one.

    I think pitt bulls need and want very consistent and caring humans. They want to be with their humans but their humans need to teach them. They are energetic and full of vigor and strong and they need a human that is very consistent in expectations, training and loving. I think they got a bad rap (just like the dobie) but they need attention and care.

We have a lovely tempered pair of Bull terriers, a white male named Hitler (3y) and Eva(2y), a brindle female. She had 2 puppies a week ago and only 1 survived. Do you think a small number of puppies like this is normal? They are both healthy dogs with more than enough energy, is it possible that something went wrong during the pregnancy? Her first batch was 5 puppies and only 2 survived, this is making me worry a bit.

    Have you talked to the vet? Do you know why the babies died? If not you might want to have the best determine the cause of death. The average litter for the bull is 5 but it is far from being unusal that they oinly have 1 pup. Is mom feeding the babies?

I have a red nose pit. I got her about 6 months ago. I don't know much about the people who had her but she starts shaking every time a man gets around her. It took my husband babying her nonstop for her to trust him enough to let him be around her. But with me and my daughter and granddaughter she is fine. Does this mean that a man has abused her in the past and what can I do for her so she isn't so scared all the time?

    Hey regina my wife and I have a 2 1/2 yr rescue red nose and when she first came home to us pretty much any time I looked at her she cower between my wife's feet and pee on the floor, and that told me right away that she had been abused by a man. Your girl sounds like she was abused too and that's very sad. I have found that when it is just myself and our rescue "Brandy" at home she is very loving and caring towards me but when my wife and son are home she tends to be rather timid towards me. I have been talking to several breeders of both reds and blues, and they all keep telling the same thing if one of these beautiful animals has been abused by either a male or female they will always remember that, and be very cautious around them. The only other thing I can say is encourage your husband and any other close male friends or family to give your girl all the love and attention in the world and to never ever raise their voice in an aggressive manner towards her or any of the children in the household. Say "NO TO BSL" "BAN THE DEED NOT THE BREED" LOVE YOUR PITTIES AND HUG THEM EVERYDAY!

    I am sorry this happened to your dog, but yes it does mean she was abused by a man in the past. Your husband should give her treats and toys every time he wants to be with her, so she associates good things happen when a man comes near her. This may take a while, but she should start feeling more comfortable around your husband, or any other man.
    Hope this helped,
    Jasmine

My Westie is 6 years old and recently started having problems walking when I took him outside to go potty. I called him inside and he had trouble moving his back legs. Today he had problems moving his front legs. It is really cold about 20 degrees. I'm really worried. Please rsvp.

    Does he have trouble moving his legs while indoors where it is not so cold? I would advise taking him to a vet.

    Westies are prone to arthiritis. Do you have a regular vet? Ask him/her about this medicine called Rimadyl. My Westie takes it at mealtime, Its a small pill so i give her half in the morning and the other half at night. This drug is meant to drug for provide comfort for dogs with arthritis. Routine monitoring should be done while on any medication. My Westie is almost 13 years old and she is still trotting around like the best in town! She has bouts of stiffness- I do notice that when its cold outdoors it gets extra sensitive. My vet said that it can be because of the quick transfer of warm and cozy indoors to very cold outside. They pee and poop in the oddest positions and the instant warm to cold may stiffen up. Have a sweater for outdoors but take it off inside.
    Good luck,
    Betty

I have owned several apbt's. I now have 2, 1 is 3 months and the other is a year old. Both are seal colored with white paws and white chest. They are my life. I spend as much time as I can with them. Guess u could say they are like my best friends. We do a lot together.. take walks, go to the park, go to the lake. They always make me smile, especially when they are playing together. My 3 month old tried to act as tough as my year old and he slings her all over the place lol. It's cute, but anyway apbt is a great breed. I wouldnt have it any other way... DONT HATE THE BREED.

    Hi,
    I was wondering if you had any tips on how to train a pit bull. I have one who is about 6 or 7 months. I still can't get her to stop nipping and she has destroyed a lot things in the house. I'm not sure if putting her in a crate when I leave the house will help or what I should do.

    Hi, I have a pit I got from Stray Rescue. He is about a year and a half old. He is crate trained to the point where all I have to say is "Crate" and he runs to his crate and sits, waiting for his treat and his quiet time (when we're gone). I highly recommend crate training because you never know what your dog could get in to, eat, etc.. while you're gone. There's all sorts of things in your house your dog could get hurt by: chocolate, household chemicals, kids toys, just to name a few. It's really important that the crate is a good place for them and not a punishment (ie don't put the dog in there when he/she has been bad). Petey loves going into his crate. As for the nipping, if you are playing and get bit it's important to say NO and stop playing immediately, that way he/she knows that you are serious and that biting you will stop playtime. That's what we did with Petey, and when we play he is fierce but gentle if his teeth touch my skin he will not bite down. Remember if he/she does something they're not supposed to do you have to scold them while they're in the act, not later on (they live in the moment). Be a pack leader and a strong but loving "parent" (pretty much) and I'm sure you'll get the response you're looking for! Hope this helps!

We had adopted a wonderful Bully. Soon we saw that he had skin allergies .
We took him to the vet , she determined that he had yeast infection , along with allergies. She prescribed antibiotics and anti fungal meds. he was on them for 4 weeks. We also wiped his paws with vinegar water when entering the house. Also special medicated shampoo twice a week.
The meds made him nauseous at times and he lost some of his appetite.
Now he is free of problems and give him a table spoon plain yogurt to replenish his good bacteria. His appetite returned as well.

    Glad all worked out OK. Somehow we get more attached to our pets when a few things go wrong and we work through them. I am glad for you. Good luck.
