Looking for assistance for my puppy

    Hello all,

    I recently made an account on this forum to see if I could get pointed into the right direction or gather some advice for my pitbull. My wife and I have 3 shih tzu's. Last night, my pitbull made one of the shih tzu's ear bleed. Now she is telling me to rehome him or euthanize him. I know this is a myth about tasting blood, however, she doesn't see it this way.

    What could I do to stop my dog from biting the others on the ears or collars which can potentially hurt them? I cage him up at night and if I'm not around during the day. I also give him kongs and toys to play with. We go on walks and regular training/exercise as well.

    Thank you in advance!

    It would be much better for you and the dog if you gave him another home.
    Pit bulls are dog aggressive. Been bred for that for hundreds of years.
    All the training in the world will not change hundreds of years of breeding for a certain trait.

    Keeping him crated while he cannot be supervised is very good. You probably would have to crate and rotate if you want to keep the other dogs and the pitbull. This means that when the pitbull is out the other dogs are crated, etc. It is manageable after you adjust to it. They definitely should never be left out together. When I got my second pitbull mix I crated and rotated all day long every hour so that they could see each other and get used to each other, etc. He is not dog aggressive, but he is dog reactive. My female is a calm confident dog and he is the opposite so it worked out.
