I have not been on in a while but new I should turn to you guys/gals.  I think I already know my answer but here goes.  And yes I am very experienced with dogs of all sorts!

A week ago we got an APBT, mother and father had great temperaments.. .we took the more laid back not overly active pup.  But...this lil guy at 7 weeks old is more aggressive than I have seen in any APBT...I mean FOOD, TOY, DOG and just overly aggressive.  You touch his face he bites at you(not puppy nipping), you touch his food...HE GOES CRAZY attacking you protecting the bowl and everything...d og walks by his crate and he is barking and growling and trying to get at the dog.

I own a Bull Terrier, A Mastiff/Am bulldog, a d have worked in the Pet Industry for 7 yrs now and have had a dog since I was 3....I have owned APBT before, I am on my 2nd BT, I have handled many breeds of dogs...but this pup is going to be a handful and trouble I can just see it.  Even if I train him to not act/react the way that he does not mean it will not come out one day...sigh...I dont know but I think he has to go back...what do you guys think

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Dogs Skin Turned Black

So we bought our House Last Sept.  And ever since they have been spending more time outside, their skin has gone from pink to pretty much black...and its happened to all of them...The Vet says they are healthy and theres nothing wrong with their skin.  Its just strange, I thought maybe it was from eating sticks and pine cones...but who knows.  Anyone else experience this before....Oh and I found this great BULLY PUP...not from a breeder but from a guy who was given 2 imported Bullies from his friends Dad that is a vet, because they were just too much for him. He just wanted to breed them once, but the pups and the parents are great...goin back to see em this weekend.  But what do yall think is up with this black skin

So I went to see the Pups this evening.  Of course I wanted to take them all home...They are puppies.  Heres the Deal.  The Dogs are from the same Breeder Lines of my past Bull Terrier.  There are only two left, that dont have deposits on them.  They are local, which I like, because I dont like ordering Dogs online and over the phone.  The mom is a TAIL CHASER...thats probably my biggest issue, she wasnt too bad, I was able to get her attention so she stopped, but still....She was a tail chaser.  Is this going to make it a lot more likely that the pups do the same thing...or could it just never ever happen.  I know the answer is both.  What do you guys think?  I just like the fact of being able to interact with the dogs.  I am going to call the original blood line owners tomorrow, to get their advice.

Ok So ive Decided to go with another Bully.  A great looking strolled in to my job on Sat(from Bullies By God) and I got sad thinking about Vito(if you dont know the story, he recently went to Dog Heaven) and thought, Man I want another one of these dogs they are great...I love em.  And I played with him for a while and made up my mind.  I decided Boxers-too crazy, and jump too much, and Corsos-well too big, I already have a mastiff.  So Bull terrier it is, Perfect Size, Great personalities.  So I found a Brand New Breeder, whos whole stock comes from Ann Dees Bull Terriers(Vito was an Ann Dees).  And they have pups, and the Sire is actually Vitos half brother(same dad different momma).  Im going to go see em today.  Also does any one know of any reputable Bull Terrier breeders in the SE, Im in Atlanta.  I also talked to Bullies By God, but they are further away, and I dont like picking dogs out of a catolog so to speak.  I like meeting the parents and all the pups. So hopefully I make a decision based on Logic, and not my heart, Because they have one that looks like Vito.  Wish Me Luck.  On a side note has anyone seen The Breeders of Rufus(Rocky Top, westminster Best of Show winner 2006) new Show Dog, New Promise! Wow, great looking dog, if he makes it to Westminster, we might have another Best Of Show Bully! 

Hey Everyone, I am trying to figure out what my next dog will be.  Recently my Bull Terrier had to be put down..R.I.P Vito.  We think he had some mental/brain issues, because he turned aggressive all of the sudden, ppl, and animal.   So I am trying to decide on either Boxer, or Cane Corso.  Not just any Dog either, from a reputable breeder, with dogs that have a great track record, and great temperments.  We are a very social family, have a social dog neighborhood, and will be having kids within a few yrs.  Whats everyones experience with these two breeds, I have my own thoughts but want to here others.  I jus want a great dog, Good Gaurd when needed, good with children, and out going.  So what do yall think???

My MastiffxAmeric an bulldogs( Bandog) hips don't seem right to me.  When she walks it doesn't seem like they rotate smoothly, and when she runs she does the Bunny Hop!!!!  She is about to be 16 weeks old 2morrow...she weighs 31 lbs.  She doesn't seem to be in pain...and I don't know if its just cuz shes a clumsy thing... but she just doesn't seem to be steady on her back legs.  She looks more English Mastiff than anything so if any of you guys especially Mastiff owners have experienced this...please let me know.  Is it just a growing thing?  I mean shes only 16 weeks... Shes not overweight because of that prescription food she was on was horrible for her growth....I just don't want her to have super hip problems....Aa aarrrggghhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhh !!!!!!!

So we have a 15 week old pup,  she weighs 30lbs.  She is and English Mastiff, American Bulldog Mix, also breed as Bandog's.  She has just been taken off antibiotics and Vet prescribed dog food, because she had crystals and blood clots and bacteria in her bladder and urinary track.  I have no idea how big she is going to get, The Mom American Bull was about 90 lbs, and Dad english Mastiff was 200 about.  I know that the prescription food was horrible for her growth, and I hope she can recover.  Has anyone else encountered this breed, or had these health issues.  Oh by the way...we also have a Mini Schnauzer, and a Bull Terrier(ANN DEES)
