In the future I want more than one dog. They will be shelter/rescue dogs but i have researched breeds so that if i know what is in the mix I can have a basic idea of what the dog could be like. There are tons of pit bulls in shelters waiting to die and I would LOVE to have one. Plus I love their people temperament and think they are adorable. Since I want more than one dog, I had ruled them out as a possible candidate. I was thinking though, many of you have pits in multiple dog house holds and do just fine. So if I were to get a mature (over 3 years old) dog who has been temperament tested and proved good with dogs would it be safe to get one. What are the chances his temperament will change and he will be aggressive? is it too much of a risk? What conditions would they have to live under, like being separated when I was not home? How about with cats. if he has been tested with cats and proven good can I assume he is safe to get? I would not be getting this dog for at least 10 yrs. by the way. Also I'm assuming it would be safest if the Pitty was the last dog I got, do you think it matters whether the pit is the first or the last or somewhere in between?
