I have a 3yo male pit..biggest baby in the world..great with family, very social, great with kids. My daughter got it as a puppy, i was very apprehensive because of the image but he's raised with a pug and a boston terrier so he's very well behaved. Invisible fence keeps him in the yard and basically a typical family dog.
While on vacation, the kid I had house sitting had one of his friends bring his pit over for a "play date" unknown to me. Story has it the kids pit ran out of the house and a neighbor kid was shooting baskets and yup..got bit on the leg. They say it was a playful "nip" but the kid had to get a tetanus shot, tore his pants, and well..still have more of the story to learn.
Needless to say I am livid but hiding that feeling til i get the story from the neighbor, would appreciate any insight as to my responsibility to this event. The house sitters friend made a comment that I shouldn't be using an obedience collar when we walk him, makes him look mean, but without if he would drag you along, choking himself with a normal collar. I even make the the boston wear one, imagine how mean she looks! ha..the pug just wears a normal collar as he gets winded after a block! I wanna tell the kid it seems his dog needs some obedience!
So anyway..comments, insights, thoughts would be welcome.
