    CT: Trial begins against former pit bull rescue president accused of killing dogs

    This is why I always tell people to never work with any "rescue" unless you have seen it with your own eyes, KNOW the people personally, KNOW their finances. Too many rescues are living hells for dogs and I'd wager it's happening a lot now with huge numbers of dogs being given up. There is...

    Abnormal fixation on females in heat

    Pretty normal for an intact male. She not wanting him means nothing to him. It's biological and chemical and the male pretty much can't help it.

    Two male pitbulls being aggressive to each other

    Crate and rotate is not always easy for everyone. But, for anyone planning on getting more than one Pit Bull (or many other breeds as well) and keeping them together, THINK AGAIN. Visualize "crate and rotate" in your mind and SEE how it's going to affect your dogs, your family, the use of space...

    What color is My BBM? Potential saddleback?

    Just seal. Genetics of it are uncertain.

    Ear crop need some help :) <3

    The crop is not that bad and there is nothing you can do until they are fully healed anyway. They do not look like a Dobe crop! There is a lot of personal preference in what length they should be (I find the crop in AGKs post too short and too wide). The length of yours is fine. If anything...

    Cysts between toes

    Are these chronic? They can be very difficult to treat and sometimes can only be controlled with lifelong treatment. Why didn't they just muzzle the dog to examine? Best thing would be to get to a canine dermatology specialist and get on a course of treatment.

    Need advise

    How is the ABKC dog registered -- as an American Bully or as an American Pit Bull Terrier?

    Amstaff size

    Yes, the vast majority of AST bitches would be bigger than this. I've seen a couple that did end up this size, but it is not usual. She's quite fine -- may have something else in her. Very pretty, athletic-looking dog!

    Stop hating on other people's preferences

    I just laugh anymore. What are basically overdone APBTs got recognized as a breed -and unleashed more confusion about the APBT than has ever existed. Congratulations UKC and any other entity that gave these “bullies” breed status!

    Akc shows

    Yes. You will have to get an Indefinite Listing Privelege (ILP) number. If it's a Pit Bull you have, there are some things to be aware of on the application. Search the AKC website for the application and see what it involves these days. There have been many ILP Pits registered as ASTs that...

    ear crop too long

    Was anything said to you about posting and/or taping these ears?

    Emergency help for Pregnant Yoko

    I can’t believe they can’t find any thing. Did you tell them she had prolapsed?

    Rico red pitbull from Holland.

    Nice-looking dog!

    A little help on Breed...

    Yes , she could be Am Staf as well. Red noses not common, but definitely do happen. The problem with “bullies” is that it’s not so much what they “look like” - it’s whether they have certain very special (sarcasm) names in the pedigree. I have seen ADBA-style dogs that are called “American...
