I brought home our newest addition from a rescue this week. He is a 6 year old Pit bull. This is my first pit but I've been rescuing rotties for nearly 20 years. I'm used to strong and stubborn dogs. Today I was heading out the door, keys in hand, and Festus tried and succeeded to push past me . Luckily the door leads to the garage so he didn't get outside. I have no idea if he's a runner or not. When I tried to coax him back in the house he refused. I walked toward him and took him by the collar and gently tried to lead him back in the house. Without warning he snapped at my hand, getting my finger. No broken skin but it hurt. At that instant I loudly said "go" and pointed into the house. He finally went in, ears back and tail down. I felt bad. This dog has been a pleasure for the past 3 days. He knows basic commands, no known history of abuse or neglect. Has shot records dating back to 2012. Friendly with my current dog and submissive to her. I guess I'm looking for input how I could have handled it better. I think it may be stemming from the preconceived notions about pits because of negative media coverage and I don't want to let that affect me but afraid it has. Any advise greatly appreciated.
