Welcome! Hope you get all the answers you need. Lucky girl to have found you!

Many around here will tell you to "never trust a pit bull not to fight," meaning that they keep their dogs separated when they are not under direct supervision. I do this with my dogs (two muttly wonders, one of which likely has some bully of some sort in her). They are in crates unless there's a human watching over them.

There are plenty of people who have pit bulls with other dogs (some pits, some not) who do not separate them when unsupervised, and they've had no problems. HOWEVER, there are threads in this very forum describing the tragic aftermath of some dogs, who were previously fine with each other, being left alone together.

It's a personal choice you have to make. Personally, I choose to separate my powerful dogs from one another when I'm not there to make sure they're okay. Paranoid??? Dunno. Peace of mind? Yes.
