Thoughts on pitbull and goldendoodle living together?

    Hello, I am moving in with my boyfriend who has a ~4 year old rescue pup, did a DNA test and is 100% staffordshire terrier. He is super friendly, energetic and clingy to my boyfriend, like a shadow. I haven't seen him around many dogs but when he does interact he seems friendly. I have only owned one dog, a goldendoodle girl who unfortunately passed away last year, she was my whole world. I would like to get a male goldendoodle puppy but my boyfriend seems apprehensive about a doodle puppy getting along with his dog- I am on here to see if anyone has any insight or has a pitbull type pup and goldendoodle who live together successfully? Thanks for your time <3

    Terriers can be dog aggressive. It's a normal trait.

    I want to add if this is your first pitbull.....my suggestion would be to do research and read up on this breed before even considering getting one. They are a wonderful breed but they have certain traits (as with any other breed) that you should learn and see if you will be able to manage.

    My Staffordshire Terrier mix does not seem fond of hyper dogs. Goldendoodles are very hyper and puppies can be hyper. He likes my other bully mix because she is a calm and confident dog. My bully mix would love a hyper golden doodle or puppy. I noticed there is a big difference between Staffies and Pits.

    Be sure you can handle the pup before you decide to take that chance that you can handle two dogs.

    I would never own a Doodle. I have friends that are groomers and the horror stories they tell. #-o
    As far as getting a puppy. You (both of you) need to agree on your next dog. And you need to know his dog well enough to know how he is going to react.
    We have 4 dogs and I can tell you exactly how each one would react if I brought in a puppy.
    Rosie (14) would ignore it until it was at least 4 months old, then she would interact with it a LITTLE bit. But if the puppy bothered her, she would leave the room.
    Marshall (12) would show a casual interest in it. He would avoid it, but be fine with it napping with him.
    Frankie (8 (damn! that was hard to type, how can she be 8????)) She would be over the moon happy. She LOVES puppies. She would think we got her a new friend to play with.
    Rikki ( 4 1/2) she would NOT be happy, she would have to be supervised 100% of the time she was anywhere near the puppy, for a LONG time before she would even begin to accept a puppy.

    Thank you for this response and the other previous ones. I appreciate all of this insight and definitely need to hold off on looking at doodle puppies and put more time and focus getting to know his current staffordshire terrier and work on training and bonding.
