Introduction of myself and my Yaro boy!

    Hello from Brazil!
    It's great to make part of such a great community like this. We all love the dogs, specially the APBT.
    I'm 27 yo, live in São Paulo - Brazil and this is my second experience owning the APBT. The first one happened when I was just a boy around 12-13 yo. In that time, we had a red nose brindle guy called Yaro. This guy was a lovely dog around people and other 2 small dogs that we had in the house, but often when he made a flee, most likely the end of history was a killed dog in the neighborhood (he wasn't game breed but had such high prey drive and fighting drive). His ending was even sadder, in his last flee while killing a dog some people in the streets killed him by knocking in his head until the cranius was open. Now that several years passed, I found myself able to have a new dog, gifted by a friend (I mean a true dog, since I've had mutts and others dogs) and I've doing socialization since he was 3 months to avoid the same stuff to happen again. He's 5 months now and note that actually he is a dog that socialize very well with other dogs (does'nt show agression at all but show a lot of play drive when excited), also I walk him daily and even off the leash he keep in my pace. Also Yaro II don't pay attention to cats. Shall I expect him to keep this behavior for adult age??
    Also I would like to receive your opinions regarding this puppy about conformation and overall appearence, because I know the dam but unfortunatelly I don't know sire (my friend said he is APBT as well).

    Really looking for some replies, warm regards.

    Welcome!
    More than likely Yaro II will also show dog and animal aggression. It is a bull breed trait. There are many threads and posts here explaining why this occurs and how to manage it.
    It is a shame that your first boy got loose so much, and ended up being killed for genetics.
    How are you going to prevent that from happening to your new dog? A tether/chain spot in the yard is a good solution. I recommend neutering this dog too, that way if he does get loose, like your other dog, he cannot father more unwanted puppies.
    He's a cute puppy, for sure. Without a pedigree there is really no 100% sure fire way to tell if he's purebred, but he looks APBT to me.
    Conformationally speaking, if you could get a good stacked (side shot where all 4 are on the floor and dog is looking straight ahead, like he's alerted to something) pic, that would help.

    Thank you for your reply!
    Since that old time, I moved to a new place where actually I intend to raise him free (the place has fences and gates, hopefully he won't be able to jump) but in any case, I have a good "keep" place (it's like a 10mx4m grass and earth, with a good dog house) where I just put him to sleep every night. This is the mechanical part of the history, and my efforts are going towards making him a educated, manered dog (I self-train him daily) but I'm aware that the dog agression is hiden there. As mentioned, when I see him "playing" with the older dog that is even higher than him, I can see him ready and stalking to attack. Obviously they play with each other bitting and running, but I feel unconfortable with this situation sometimes.
    Anyway, thanks for the feedback. I'll try to take a picture of him the way you said and will post later.

    Welcome! Please be sure the fences are high enough and also be sure the dog cannot dig under the fence to get out.

    Very nice looking dog

    Please tether him in the yard if you see that he digs or climbs the fence. You have to be careful that he doesn't hang himself either.
