Let me introduce myself. I live in the northeast corner of Tennessee in the Appalachian mountains. My husband and I have an 11 year old (rescued) Bull terrier that is stubborn and very “I” oriented and been our only dog for over 7 years.
About two weeks ago my husband found a 6 week old pit bull puppy dropped of at the dumpster behind a grocery store. She was scared, lonely and searching for shelter. My husband brought her home. It did not take long for me to fall in love with her and I really want to keep her. She is a sweet puppy, most of the time, but there are some problems. For one I never raised a puppy, I always had adult dogs. Also with her being a pit bull, I can already see a fierce behavior in her. Also my older dog does not like her. He is scared of her and every time she barks or whines, he is shaking or hiding in the closet. My husband is worried about the older dog and how he is affected by the pup. I am more worried about her using me as her favorite chewy toy and when I try to correct her behavior she thinks it is a game and gets more roweled up.
Basically, I need your help and wisdom in raising this puppy right and get my old dog used to her. She deserves a good home and love, and I want to give it to her. I hope you let me be a part of this Forum.
