My family and I just adopted a rescue dog, pit/weimar mix, named Vikka. She's GORGEOUS! Has the coloring of a weimar. She's about 1-1 1/2 and recovering from an FHO. She's an absolute sweetie. I have two boys, six and 22 mos. Vikka and the kids get along well. She still occasionally barks at my husband but that is improving. I've had lots of dog experience, but this is my first time with these breeds. I quickly established myself as the alpha and she is responding appropriately. We've had her for two days and so far she appears to be highly trainable and eager to please. She's well crate-trained and housebroken already. (yeah!)
I know enough about the breed that the media completely vilified them, so I was not concerned with having a pit with young kids. Not to mention she's a mix not full.
I look forward to getting to know the breed better and learn tips and techniques for training.
