I am a very big animal lover. I need some help, adivce, someone to tell me I am crazy something!!! I have to large pitbulls at home. I would not trade them for the world. They get along great together. I have gone and resuced another pitbull from the pound. She is only about 6-9 months old. Very loving very good with my son and to me. Will not open her mouth to even naw or anything. I brought her home and she attacks one of my other dogs. And I am trying to get them to like eachother. My dog just stands there and doesn't do nothing to her. What can I do? I hope that there is help for her. She is so pretty and good otherwise.. Please if you can help me let me know.
If you have pit bulls you should know by now that some pit bulls do NOT get along with other dogs. Dog vs dog aggression is just part of their breeding heritage, in the same way it's a bloodhound's heritage to track, and a beagle's heritage to hunt rabbits.
Same sex dog aggression is also fairly common among bully breeds. The dogs may *never* adjust to liking each other, and you need ot prepare yourself for the possibility that the new addition will need to be kept 100% sepearte from the older one. Never leave the dogs alone togther when you leave the home, or you may come home to 1 or even 2 dead dogs :P If this is a set up you arne't comfortable with, then you may need to consider rehoming the younger dog in a household with no other pets/dogs.
I know this is a bit of a older post. This answer is for anyone who may benefit on having a multi Pit house hold. Dog on dog agression is hard wired for this breed and something that needs to be taken into condsideration before you bring more then one dog into your home.Please read up on the breed chacteristics before you bring a dog into your home.
