  9. My puppy won't stop biting, and it's only getting worse!

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have a 3-month-old pitbull mix, and she will not stop biting me. No matter what I'm doing, she is constantly trying to bite any skin she can get to. I've tried the yipping trick that's supposed to surprise her and get her to stop, but all she does is get more excited and start barking and...

  12. Limping Dog

    Dog Health Questions
    Hello, fairly new to this forum! One of my dogs, Kiss, a 8-year-old (could possibly be 10) pitbull, has a very slight limping on her front right leg, on and off. By "on and off" I mean that, in three-four months, I've seen this happen twice. Once, it was only for three steps, maybe less. The...
  13. 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...

    Recently, on the 21st of May, my 3 year old pitbull Baby Girl was murdered in cold blood.

  17. Half Pitbull

    General Dog Forum
    I know pits have bad reputations. I knew when I brought Rosco home that I was eventually going to encounter someone who did not like him just because of his breeding. Maybe they know a guy who knows a guy who read somewhere that a pitbull ate their baby. Maybe they have a legitimate reason...
  18. Rosco vs The Sand Monster

    General Dog Forum
    I am so mad that my camera died today! Rosco set foot on sand for the first time today and it was one of the funniest things I have seen all week. We took advantage of the nice weather and went for a short hike near the house. As soon as he put his front paw in the sandy dirt, he went nuts! He...
