Just want to give an update on the guy...he is doing really well today. No whining in his kennel today for nap time and I have been using a waterbottle for when he tries to mount the female dog. I let him loose in the house and he did fabulous. I am very impressed with him and hopefully he will just keep impressing me.
Thank you for all the encouragement. I have to say I was very nervous about him yesterday, especially with all the bad press these poor dogs get.

Have the authorities done anything to try to stop it???
Last year they busted a guy with 30 dogs, sadly they put down all the dogs.

Hi: I wouldn't worry too much about the humping. I have an altered
male APBT that humps any new dog that comes into the house. For
him it is a dominance issue...his way of letting them know who is boss.
My guy is just over a year so still adolescent in many ways.

Hi, welcome. One thing, sometimes AmStaffs can be much "softer" dogs with people than folks expect. A lot are prone to take harsh correction poorly and a gentle touch can sometimes work better. Might or might not be the case with your guy but I thought I'd mention it.
