I am a new pit bull mommy. It kind of happened unexpectedly that we have taken in a baby boy pit (we think he's about 7 weeks old, he was given to us by a breeder that couldn't take good care of him). I own pugs so I am not familiar with this breed at all, but I can tell you that he is something else. First of all, he is soooo fat and it seems like he can never get enough to eat. Is that normal? Pugs are very greedy, too, but this boy can eat my two year old Pug under the table and still look for more He goes to the vet Friday and they will check him for worms when he gets his shots. My number one concern of course is about aggression. He is pretty sassy, a little food aggressive, but I have been working with him on that, giving him a verbal warning or a tap on the behind when he does it. I make sure meal time is including the whole family and I make the kids pet him and love on him while he's eating. He seems to be doing well. With Pugs there is some aggression because they are used to getting their way and so you have to put them in their place from time to time. Well theres a big difference between a 15 pound Pug and a full grown Pit Bull, so I want to raise him right from a baby to make sure we do all we can do to ensure he's a good canine citizen. He is such a cutie pie--he's also very affecionate, he whines for me when I have to put him down. He is easily one of the prettiest puppies I have ever seen When my husband told me about him I was like No Way!! but as soon as I saw him I was in love! Anyway, I have babbled on too long. I am looking for a mentor, someone I could communicate with about raising my boy, through email. Someone who can give me some good advice. I would appreciate it. Just take this for example. With Pugs when they are being stubborn (all the time) we take them and do the Alpha Roll and pin them down. This lets them know we are the boss. It's not mean, it's exactly what an older, alpha dog would do to them in a pack. Is this something wise to do with a Pit puppy? Or is there a better approach I don't know about. What is good with one breed is not always good with the next--I know Pits and Pugs do have one thing in common, they are both very loyal to their owners. So anyone out there interested in being a sounding board and/or mentor please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your time.
