I don't see Rottie or Mastiff in the brown one and I don't really see much pit bull in the white one. I'd say they are both "mixes of mixes" with possibly some bully breed in there.Hello thanks for the reply! No he's just his buddy. We want to buy both of them. The other one is a mastiff Rottweiler mix. I just want to know if this one is going to stay small or not. But I really wanted a pit bull. My wife fell I'm love with the brown one. I don't think I've heard of that breed you just mentioned. Thanks! I hope it does have pit bull in her though.
Please don't underestimate this. I was looking at apartments in Virginia. Every single complex allowed two dogs, no size limit, no breed limit EXCEPT no pit bulls. It's the same in PA. Lots of apartments allow dogs, just not pit bulls. Rottweilers are another commonly banned breed.Additionally, those breeds (at least the breeds you are being told are in these dogs) are commonly banned breeds in apartment complexes and rental homes plus many insurance companies won't insure them.
I could *not* agree more Shell. It's a lot or responibility these people are taking on, and it may not be the best suit for them. If they just want some dogs to laze around the house with get an ETS (English Toy Spaniel) or like a Japanese Chin or something like that. You want the right dog to fit /your/ life style.I don't see Rottie or Mastiff in the brown one and I don't really see much pit bull in the white one.

They are about the same size now, if they are the same age, they will likely mature to be about the same size. Very hard to guess not knowing age and weight now. "Pit bulls" in the loose sense of the term to include pit type mixes or dogs that appear to be pit bulls can range in weight pretty widely, from petite 35 lbs females to beefy 70 lbs males.
But do you know how difficult it is to raise two pups together and do it right? You are taking about a massive time commitment, as each will need a significant amount of time away from the other with individual walks, individual training and individual attention. Google "littermate syndrome" and search it on this site for more discussions.
Pit bulls are high energy dogs that need a lot of exercise, attention and training. They tend to be velcro dogs and want to spend ALL their time glued to your side- which if you are trying to train/exercise the dogs separately to prevent problems, is an issue.
Additionally, those breeds (at least the breeds you are being told are in these dogs) are commonly banned breeds in apartment complexes and rental homes plus many insurance companies won't insure them. They are great breeds, I'm strictly speaking on a logistical or practical concern that cannot be overlooked. I do pit bull rescue and it is every day that the rescue is getting emails and calls from people asking us to re-home their dogs because of housing concerns (or the "I'm moving to Denver where there is a breed ban, can you take my pit?" ARGH!!!)
Are you considering "buying" these dogs? Is this someone breeding them or rehoming them or what?
It is generally regarded as unsafe to leave two dogs alone (and loose) together unsupervised. Especially two females from breeds that may be prone to dog aggression; but leaving dog aggression aside, even normally friendly dogs can get into fights or "spats" which if you are present you can easily break up with a few words or grabbing a leash but if you are not present, may escalate into serious violence.Thanks for the information I will look into it! I'm looking into rehoming them. They are both females by the way I know I said him earlier..oops! I live in CA and from what I know I see pits all around all the time. Thank you again for you opinion about the dog breeds and about the litter mate problem! I just want the dogs to have company when I'm not there at times. I work a regular job so its not like I won't have time for them.
I was not implying that you didn't plan to be active, simply trying to underscore the sheer amount of TIME needed for two young dogs. Right now I have my (trained, 5 yr old male) dog and one (somewhat trained, 2 yr old female) pit bull foster. Here's a typical day.... morning walk 30 minutes to 1 hour, all day at work, evening walk 1 hour, evening playing SUPERVISED in the yard 1-2 hours, time spent trying to keep them from tearing up the living room with their rambunctious play= the rest of the waking hours. At 9:30 pm last night, they were rolling around and trying to play on the dog bed because they still had energy left! Now, that's with two dogs that I can walk together and don't require significant "separate" time to train well or prevent bonding problems. If I were dealing with puppies, it would be more time consuming.We are active and plan on being active with our dog(s)
