    some time in near future i would like to have a blue pitbull puppy. i heard they dont get along with other dogs. my Am.Staff loves other dogs....so if i get a puppy, should it be okay with another dog??? or do all pitbulls not like other dogs?????? i will surely do some more research on them, but i wanted to hear from your experience

    AmStaffs, Staffs, and Pits are extremely dog-aggressive and CANNOT be trusted around other animals unsupervised. You can't get it out of them.

    Yes I am sure. "Pitbull type dogs" were bred to fight other animals and act aggressively towards them. You cannot breed that out of them and you cannot train that out of them. That's just the way they are.
    She has an American Staffordshire Terrier mix.

    You are just plain wrong.

    My Pit mix lived for years with my two older dogs, a lab mix and a yellow lab. He never started a fight, ever. He did prove he had the "talent" when he was attacked on walks over the years.
    I have a friend with a male pit and a beagle who get along great, and have for nearly a decade.
    I have another friend who has a pit that sleeps with his daughter and has no problems with any of the many relative's dogs that visit constantly.

    Most of the time, if the dog is well socialized, they will be ok.

    >we need to accept that dog-aggression is part of what makes them pit bulls.

    The thing I don't understand is why, since most normal people aren't fans of dog fights, aren't the breeders of 'bully' breeds moving to eliminate that dog-aggressive trait from their breeds. It can't be that difficult - look at the complaints from the Cocker Spaniel and Irish Setter people about lost hunting skills, or the fears from the Border Collie people about herding mojo. It doesn't take 200 years to alter a breed's behavior.

    You lose a lot of other things as well, Casa, along with often gaining some undesirable traits. And those skills haven't been intentionally bred out, they've literally been lost by a singleminded focus on breeding for a certain 'look' to win in the beauty pageant show ring.

    NOW - Michaela . . . why don't you PM Love4Pits and ask her directly? Let's see, I think she's up to four or five rescued Pitties now, along with all of her sled dogs, several cats . . . :D

    My CJ is a staffy bull terrier mix and lives with an Anatolian and a Bandog (neo/pit). They are a family.

    My stepson has a pitbull who is a sweety. When they come over, his dog plays with all of ours.

    I think it all depends upon the temperament of the dog you get.

    blue,
    What does "Chihuahua-start digging your grave now," mean?? I just don't get that part.

    On topic though, Pits are naturally dog aggressive. They are normally great with humans, but as with any other dog (such as the Poodles, the Border Collie, & Doxie, etc. that I have been bitten by), there is a chance it will bite. Raise your dog the best you can and to the best of his potential, but never leave a Pit alone with another animal. It is in their natural instinct to be suspicious of and possibly kill that animal.
    My Chi is best friends with my grandmother's Amstaff. Do I ever leave them alone?? No. But I do enjoy sitting with them in the floor playing with them.

    PS. Yes, I have been bitten by a few dogs and cats, but hey... I am a groomer, I work at a vet, and I have been raised around lots of creatures. Go figure :rolleyes:

    There are few traits more undesirable than the drive to hurt and kill another dog.
