    Now you're getting it! lol That is actually the PERFECT example. Gaud.... half the HUMAN men can't get along with each other and they are supposed to have logic to guide them and people expect dogs to? lol

    I hope when you leave the house you separate them all, even the ones that get along. It'd really suck to come home to multiple injured/dead dogs.

    Ya.. that's playin' with fire. Common sense should be the answer to that one...
     
  2. well i knew that would be a prob when i began this undertaking see they still want to play its just when the pup tries to hump bighead thats the problem and it might be 5 min or 2 hr before he tries it and my male done nothing but pin him to ground by his collar the one time it went that far which the pup wasnt nun to happy and i keep them seperate and who ever is in the house rides when we leave

    Are the males related to the females? The females don't seem too hot. My bitches will throw down and some are rescues. lol What lines are the males from? That may have an impact on the question. Are they performance bred? Show bred? Bully? Byb? lol

    The way I look at it.. why take a chance with the safety of your dogs especially if they are already displaying issues? It'll just cost you vet bills, heart ache and maybe a dog or two. Save yourself the trouble. Manage responsibly using common sense. Listen to your dogs.
     
  4. the pup is related to the fms but big head isnt the females have probs with stray and if one goes they all try to but they have never acted that way towards each other bighead is a jeep/redboy(florida) coco is colby/chinaman (virgina) kilo is boudreaux?(texas) thats what we were told about kilo but we found out that may not be the case

    Well, those are all performance lines so I'd be careful. Definitely get yourself a breaking stick and sock some money away for vet bills just in case! lol

    Ya... that sucks. Which may be another good reason why tighter management might be a good idea. There was a youtube video of some guy using a tent peg as a breaking stick. I checked some out and they didn't look that strong though. :/
     
  8. thanks ill check that out

    You bet.

    Keep in mind as well, if you live in a place where they have such laws, another thing that can cause you issues besides having a breaking stick is owning dogs with scars. If those two wind up scufflin' regularly, that could come to bite you in the ass.
     
  10. there are no laws about it the cops are just pricks and fortunately non of them have scars that any other dog there size would have ie escaping the pen and cats which there all on 20ft chains now

    Most places there are no laws that actually list break sticks, if you ever have to use one and theres as much as a nick on it throw it away as long as you have brand new ones with no signs of use, a wooden stick is a wooden stick. Call it a toy knife and make them prove that it isnt (they cant)

    Been pulled over before with a breakstick in my front seat and cops asked me what it was and I explained to them what it was and why I owned one and they didnt even seem bothered by it. Just said it looked dangerous and to keep it outta view in the vehicles cause some might take it the wrong way.

    Break stick! Only way to break up a dog fight, I had a cattle prod one day when my Amstaff and pit mix got into a fight, it was a bloody show, and not even the dang cattle prod worked! Im glad the man who lived behind me seen me tasing them, and hitting them on the head, because he jumped the fence and broke the fight up with a rigged up break stick. Other wise, I would've had a dead dog since they were both locked onto each other by then.
    My dogs now remain chained separately at all times, the Amstaff male I gave to my friend, and now my dogs are only around each other when supervised.

    I have only a small piece of input here and that is that, as well behaved as ANY pit can be you have to take into consideration that whether you do or do not believe the original history of the dog there have been for many years people breeding aggression into these dogs for fighting purposes. With your dogs safety in mind you should really consider that the people on this site are most often experienced and LOVING owners who tell it like it is rather then paint their dogs as angels. Even at 5 months old I watch my dog for signs of any slight personality change. I can hope she will stay cold and I can take her with me safely on the trails near my house, but I will not allow it to be an unsafe situation by turning a blind eye. If you noticed the animal aggression signs in your males then it is safe to assume for whatever reason regardless of bloodline one of them is no longer what the people here call a cold dog and you need to respect that dog and learn to crate and rotate. If I ever take on another dog you better believe that as much iof a baby as my girl is right now, I will be investing in break sticks and watching VERY intently. It is possible for a pit to never snap at another dog, but dont expect it and count on it so hard.
