    Attention All New Members
    I adopted Zeus when he was 8 weeks, the person who gave him to me said the person she got him off of said he was Pitbull Lab. Dad was supposedly pit and lab and mom was straight pit. Me and the lady both agreed he looked more pitbull German Shepherd. I've heard Rhodesian Ridgeback as well. So...

  6. Resource guarding issue?

    General Dog Forum
    My 16 month female rescue APBT is very protective over my bedroom, my bed in particular. She is very territorial of our home in general to strangers, but to ANYONE who comes into my room. We will be sitting in bed and for example, my brother will come in. As soon as she hears the door she starts...

  10. Some kind of hotspot on my Pit's tail that is scabbed up and bleeds.

    Dog Health Questions
    My dog is 4 yrs old and he's always had this spot on his tail where the hair wasn't that thick or full. In other words he has a spot on his tail where the hair is very thin. He recently got fleas pretty bad, the worse he's ever had them, and broke out in a rash. But this thing has evolved, it's...

  12. The Problem With Pit Bulls - Time Article

    General Dog Forum
    Not that sensationalism of pit bull attacks isn't rampant already, but this article showed up on TIME yesterday, largely condemning pit bulls in response to the fact that a 3-year-old girl who was attacked by a pit was asked to leave a KFC. There's a small section about pit bull advocacy, but...

  14. My Pit Bull Comic

    General Dog Forum
    I have made a pit bull comic. After reading and seeing all this crap out there, I just get angry. I don't even own a pit, but I care about all dogs, and no breed is in a state like the pit bull. And seriously! If we just treated pit bulls like dogs we could solve this problem (with dogs in...

    Hi. I have 5 dogs, but only three of them live with me. One of them is territorial over her collar. With people she trusts, she lets them take her collar off or pet her neck, but she get very anxious when it's off and she pushes the collar or the person until they put it back on. With new...

    I have a 54lb 5 year old female pit bull/staffie. One evening this past september she started limping on her left front leg after playing with her dog friend in a kiddy pool. She tripped out of the pool chasing her friend so I thought she had just pulled a muscle and would be fine in the...
  17. Too Excited That You're Home!

    Attention All New Members
    My 5 year old Staffordshire terrier (recently adopted) mauls us at the door. His excitement CONSUMES him and our commands seem to fall on deaf ears. You can see through the storm door that his body is quivering, his eyes are bulging and he is breathing erratically. The nightmare of entering...

    Hello all! Just joined the site and I am a new owner of a 2.5 month old puppy. He is already twenty pounds and very energetic, as expected. However, I am having a hard time accepting that he is a Pitbull. He was found in a garbage can around 2 weeks, assumed to be a pit and given to a...

  20. Pitbull reputation

    General Dog Forum
    Hi guys, as you all know, Pits has quite a bad reputation, and they are seen as aggressive kill machines, killing innocent people and other animals. I'm not too familiar with the breed, but honestly I believe that aside of its more powerful jaws and the tendency to bite and not release, which...
