Did your vet get a culture and check for an ear infection or mites? Smelling the ear isn't enough. A culture is the only way to know for sure. Infections start at the bottom of the canal at the ear drum. Because the canal is in an "L" shape infections can't be seen until it gets bad.

Glad to see that you are looking into APBT's! BSL laws... yes they can be a problem. I live on Long Island and BSL has been banned statewide. It was deemed unconstitutional by the state supreme court. There is another state (Michigan?) in the process of doing the same. The tide is turning. Just a no...

Welcome to the forum! Backyard breeding isn't always what it seems. Many times you run across a family who simply wanted to get a litter in before spaying. If you aren't into adoption, which is recommended, then I think it's time to get the facts straight. 1. As mentioned, papers mean nothing if you...

You've got yourself a handsome little boy! Ok, some info on topics you brought up... he needs exercise and lots of it. He needs long walks. We're talking 45min twice a day. If that is tough on your schedule, teach him to use a treadmill. Take turns with your BF or run him next to a bike. Pit Bulls h...

First and foremost, welcome to the world of American Pit Bull Terriers! If your sisters BF has a problem with neutering that is his problem. Dogs don't feel emasculated. Humans do. Dogs do not know the difference. Get your puppy into puppy training classes as young as they will accept. He will be le...

I took by pit to a match show (a dog show for puppies; no points) where they were having a pulling contest. He was 6 months at the time. They allowed him to enter (he was 55 lbs) with the understanding that they wouldn't let him go to the end. His first pull was a fiasco. He Got tangled in the harne...

I looked at your other pictures. Yes, in some shots he does look like like a Pit Bull. But, lab pups have a similar structure at that age. Another note, he has some similarities in his facial structure to his mother. Unfortunately, without knowing what his father is made up of, it is hard to pin dow...

Pics of my boys

Just some pics. I resized the pics on photobucket, but the previews are still coming up big. They might take a while, sorry. http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk111/dtigress/dcp_0524.jpg http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk111/dtigress/dcp_0523.jpg http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk111/dtigress...

I guess I should also mention that I spent 13 years as a groomer and am a certified obedience trainer. I used to teach obedience classes and had a blast doing so. I've done quite a bit of study in dog behavior & psychology. I've read many viewpoints on the subject and add my own experience to th...
