ltrain925 is an unknown quantity at this point
Good to know, so I know this fight and every other fight was instigated by Luna the female, Steve although a pit isn't the bully it's Luna, I have never once seen him do anything to bully Luna, should I cage both or just Luna, he's a very independent dog unlike Luna, Luna is the one that gets mad if I don't give her attention and bites his ears. I know I wasn't there for the fight but because I know the behavior of these dogs I know Luna provokes him Everytime. Should I still result in cageing both of them? Thanks again guys.

To the OP, sorry to hear about your situation, but good advise has been given. For me, I've always ruled with a loving, yet iron fist around the house and it has paid off. No real incidents with the sets of males I've owned thus far, but I really keep an eye on things whether at the food dish, or when someone enters my house and the excitement begins, to when they're in bed with me at night. They are separated when I'm not available. You really have to work hard at reading their mannerisms and predicting the outcomes...basically you have to think like an APBT. It's a dedication that some people aren't ready for. Living alone affords me the luxury of being the alpha male without having other distractions thrown into the mix, which makes my situation a bit more unusual than most. Good luck.

Good info, I've found males much easier to manage than females (bitches!) However, expecting a bull dog to back off a fight because of the threat of punishment isn't really realistic if the dogs have real beef. It works well with soft dogs, or dogs who are, as in your case, VERY carefully monitored, and have never been allowed the opportunity to build beef. I see more people get themselves in trouble because they think 'respect' or fear will over ride genetics.
I see a lot of trying to place the 'blame' on Luna and exonerate the male. They are dogs and he was obviously more than happy/able and willing to join in and his size allowed him to cause a lot more damage. Since you weren't there, you are conjecturing on what happened. Crate/rotate when you aren't there is not hard, controlling environments when you ARE there is actually a lot more work, you need to be aware of when you aren't up to or wanting to be 100% vigilant. On the computer? Making dinner? Watching TV? Then your attention can not be totally on the dogs..... it's just not possible. Set yourself and your dogs up for success.
