I recently found this forum while researching pit bulls, so I decided to sign up and check it out. It seems very dedicated to pit bulls and their well being so I'll definatly like keeping in check here. I personally do not have a pit bull, but I am working on getting one. I am taking the time to look up the breed before I do get one. Any helpful advice would be great.
I do have a full blooded two year old Boxer named Cody. I don't have any pictures on the computer, but I'll definatly get some. He has a golden coat, brown eyes. His muzzle is black, he has a white chest and socks. His nose is wrinkled a bit, because he had problems with it when he was younger, and it never grew out. We were going to put him in show because he is a beautiful dog, but he doesn't have the proper crown that a boxer should have, which I personally think makes him cuter.
I also recently just got a boxer lab mix, my family doesn't like him too well, but I love the dog. He's around 3 months old now, he's a pitch black dog with a white star on his chest. He looks mostly like a black lab. He's taking forever to get potty trained so if any of you have any suggestions on that, I'd greatly appreciate it.
I'll be moving next year which will be when I'll be getting a pit bull, so hopefully this forum will help me learn about them before I actually get one. I want to have well knowledge of the pit bull before I get one. This website inspired me to help save Pit Bulls:
An artist on the website www.deviantart.com
created this, and it has impacted a lot of people. I want to help save the breed and be one of the owners who treat the animal well.
Any suggestions before I actually get a pit bull would be great. How hard are they to train? And do I need to socialize it with maybe buying another pet, or should I just raise him/her alone?
