    Help with my puppy.

    Yes that is him in the pic. I know and have accepted that he may just one day feel the urge to fight. I know that in the bred that you dog can be perfectly fine with other dogs one week, but something can trigger them and make them want to fight. But as for my dog and the other dog fighting, it has stopped. I think I know what caused it too. This may sound strange but this is the only plausable(sp) cause i found. A day or two after Dozer was acting like he didn't want Brownie anywhere near him, Brownie got real sick almost like was about to die. I ended up rushing him to the vet. Im thinkin that Dozer knew something was wrong with him beforehand. Oh well thats just my assumption. Eric

    Exercising question

    He is an APBT, he is 15 weeks old. The 10 to 15 min walk isn't all the excercise he gets, after the walk I usually let him run around playin with my other dogs until he shows sign that he is tired and ready to go back in. And yes I would start with short jogs and build up as I watch him and see how he reacts to it. Thanks for what you have shared already. Eric

    Well I guess he could cause a problem if he had the chance. The only female dog that he comes in contact with is mine and she is spayed. I may consider getting him neutered. I just never had any of my males dogs fixed before and Im stubborn about changing my ways. After reading all the knowledge y'all have shared with me I may get it done. I know that if the health benefits are anything near that of what you get when you spay a female it is definitely a GREAT thing. Because looking at my dog Missy you would never know that she is over 10. Eric

    I all honesty it was kinda a personal choice of not having him fixed. I got a male becaues obviously you don't have to worry about him getting pregnant. I know it may sound like a stupid excuse but that is really only one i have for not having him fixed. I don't plan on breeding him though. As for the other dog I don't know exactly why he isn't. Im not his guardian. I really didn't know that at that age the scent of a female in heat would set them off. You taught me something new there. I guess it could be pack placement, I expected it to happened at some point,but I didn't expect it this soon or all of a sudden like that. Thanks for the info though

    they are both males, they aren't fixed. Dozer is 16 weeks old. I don't know exactly how old Brownie is but he isn't much older than Dozer. There were no changes in the house hold or anything and nothing could have happened between them because they aren't together at night time.

    Help with my puppy.

    Ok this is a wierd situation to me so I brought the question here to see if anyone can give me some advice. Well today when I did my usual thing and took my puppy Dozer out to play and stuff. He started acting strange. My neice's dog Brownie who is always here, was already outside. Him and Dozer are usually like best friends when out together you don't see one without the other. They are usually playing and so forth. Well today it was different. Dozer was acting all agressive towards Brownie. I thought he was just playin at first but he was continually tryin to bite Brownie. Well I put Dozer back on leash to keep him from the other dog. The entire time he wouldn't take his eye off of him and he would jerk tryin to get at him. Sorry for the long story but I wanted to explain before I asked my question. What could have caused him to act that way today? It was an over night change, literally. Do you think it was just a day phase? What should can I do? I know if I don't see any change I will keep them apart for now on.

    what age is too late to crop my APBT?

    Well I know this is a lil lately said, but i have been on in a few days. I have a reason for wanting to crop my dog's ears. It is because the last bull dog i had would get this build up of stuff in his ears that i would have to clean out every other day. My vet told me that would not have happened if I would have had his ears cropped. So I was tryin to prevent a possible problem, but if you must know. Im not going to get his ears done because I have gotten so used to seeing him the way he is. On another note if I wanted to cause my dog unneed pain I would i have took my friend offer to let him do it, but i have a lot better sense than that. After he told me he would do it with some scissors i told him to stay the hell away from my dog. I wouldn't even want to imagine how many people probably do a back yard job like that though. Eric

    what age is too late to crop my APBT?

    ok that post kinda came out backwards, the first part was suppose to be the quote Eric
  10. I was calling around the other day asking different vets about getting my dog ears cropped because my current vet doesn't do it. Well i called one vet and asked about it and they told me to make sure that he is at least 4 months old before I bring him in to get cropped. I thought that was wrong so i called another vet and asked them and they told me that He shouldn't be older than 12 weeks when I bring him in to get his ears done. I just want to know some of your opinions on this. Which is right? I thought the younger the better was the way to go, but I could be wrong. I don't want to cause my dog too much unneeded pain, so could someone help me out on this one? Thanks Eric

    Ambullneo Mastiff

    Don't get me wrong I like them, but i don't want one. I saw one and wanted to know more about it. Im happy with the dogs I have now. I don't think there will be any more added to my family for a while.

    Pit Bull

    Thanks for the welcome and all the good advice. I know that is it best to wait until the dog matures to do any strenuous activities. I look at it like him being a person. A child isn't allowed to lift weights or anything like that until they are well developed so i wasn't going to risk hurting him, just wanted to get some more insight on things to do with him. I will try to get a few pics on here soon. Thanks again
