Randa had to agree that if he was to get aggressive he'd be rehomed or put down depending on the circumstances. Hopefully it will never come to that. But you never KNOW. Never. You could have a dog with a 10 generation pedigree that have all shown no human aggression at all and have it attack someone for what we perceive as no good reason. A lot is genetics and a lot is socialization. Some say its all one and some say it's all the other. It's probably both BUT don't think that you can socialize aggression out of every dog that's got it in it's genes. Any dog can become dog aggressive, and while pit bulls have a bad rap, Some of the fights I've seen GSD's get into would turn your stomach. You never know. I'm sure you did everything you could. Don't let one bad dog make you think that all pits are like that. Spend a lot of time on this board reading and it'll help you next time.

i had a polmeranian when i got mayhem, (5 weeks) old and my polm. was agressive to him so i got rid of the polm.
but now at 6 weeks mayhem growls and snaps at every dog he meets.
