    Sometimes things are IMPLIED. I mentioned that I am a novice owner and shit hit the fan with unnecessary advise and suggestions that the breed is not for everyone (meaning is only for seasoned owners). I'm sorry if I misunderstood and did take it personally, but I am tired of people suggesting that I can't raise a healthy wellbehaved pitbull mix just because I'm new to this. I'm also offended at the insinuation that I TOOK the dog from the park as that's not what happened. I can post adoption papers if you wish. Dog ownership didn't even happen on my own accord, but it did happen and I owe it to my dog to make the best of it.

    The learning opportunity here is - and always has been - very much appreciated. Years ago, I would have been up the creek without a paddle when Trusty became DA. Instead, having read and calling on the PBC members' expertise and wisdom, we managed a multi-dog household without incident (and continue to do so with just one dog these days who will never take kindly to other dogs he encounters in public).

    Oh my goodness, I completely forgot about starting this thread.
    Good to see some things never change and threads are forever going off the rails.

    There is a lot of misinformation out there but the fact of the matter is there is a very good chance that in your sogs lifetime he may attack another dog. Im not saying he is going to see a dog and be like im going to get it. Dog aggression in this breed is bred into them. Yes they are super loyal and loving towards humans, but someday your dog may feel threatened by another dog, feel it needs what another dog has, feel that, that dog is theartening you and then you will be shocked scared and have no idea how to stop it. You should without a doubt treat you dog as if he is dog aggresive bc if everyone did this there would be less serious incidents. Get a break stick learn how to use it. Better to have it and never use it then to not have it if you need it. Yes there are other breeds that have DA dogs. But a golden retriever does not have the bite force your dog does, the focus your dog can get, and the ablitly to hold for however long they want to. Im not trying to be mean or rude but you are new to the breed and you should understand that your dog has a higher chance than other breeds to get into a fight. Wether they are around other dogs or not. And you should be prepared for it. There is thread under that says never leave your dogs unattened you should read that thread. Having a bully breed takes responsibility and knowledge. I have no doubt you and your dog can have a happy healthly life. But you need to be prepared.
    I hope that this will help you.

    Aggression towards others is a basic and primitive emotional instinct that majority of all creatures have to some degree or another, you CANT just breed it out completely unless you can breed out one's emotions. LOL
