My name is Liz (my beautiful little pit's name is Claire) and I love this site already! I've seen a lot of great responses to training and health problems!
I've had Claire for just about a year now (she's 3) and she's finally starting to behave like the dog I want her to
after lots of training! (She was neglected -- 29.5 pounds when they found her, a slim but healthy 51 now -- so it's been a long road! She tends to be fearful of new situations but is getting MUCH better)
We've just started taking an agility class and we both LOVE it!
Onto my question -- Claire is my first pit bull but I have always loved the breed. I plan to get another dog (possibly a puppy but not sure) this summer and I would love to get another pit but I'm a little nervous about having 2 in the same household, especially since they were bred for aggression toward other dogs.
Claire seems to get along very well with other dogs although she has to be the alpha and can play very rough sometimes -- she constantly knocks my friend's shepherd over!
What have your experiences been -- having 2 in the same household? Is it a good idea or preferably avoidable? I would keep them separated when I'm not home.
Also, is there a better place for me to post this question -- I wasn't sure!
Thanks very much!
