Worry or not

I been reading the forum. I have 4 small dogs ( Yorkies, dachshund and toy poodle and now I have Jade she turns 6 weeks Wednesday . As I read most are saying Pits should not be around small dogs. She is starting to play. When she is 9 weeks I start training class. I love them all and Jade has stolen my heart for I got he at 4 weeks. I know way to early if I didn't no telling where she would have went. So I'm her mom. Any suggestions would be grateful.

Worry or not

Generally dog aggression will come out between 1-2 years of age. Cain is reactive to other dogs but has grown up with Sheba and as of now does fine with her. Just be prepared that they might not always get along. There is a possibility they will but they also may not. If that's the case crate and rotate is the best way to go.

It all just depends really.

I have a seven dog household. Two "pit bull" type dogs, chihuahua, chow mix, dachshund mix, lab mix, and a Great Dane.

We are a crate and rotate household. I've had my female since she was a pup and she's grown up with these dogs and my numerous amounts of foster dogs that have come through. She's fine with all our dogs, but I still supervise all of them when they're out together. Like all dogs should be, in my opinion.

My male isn't a fan of cats (which we have) or dogs smaller than him. So, he's only allowed out with the chow mix, my female, and the dane (not the lab mix because she's still a small pup).

If your pup seems to get to the point as she gets older that she doesn't get along with some of your others or all of them, just crate and rotate! I don't think its a thing where pit bulls shouldn't be around small dogs, I think its just whichever suits your particular dog more. Some like all dogs, some prefer their size or bigger, and some just aren't a fan of other dogs at all.

yeah shouldn't be a big deal as a puppy. Puppies are puppies, and if she grows up they may need to be created and rotated. It could happen with lots of breeds though, not just bully breeds. Its just more OFTEN with bully breeds they might have issues with other animals.

You crate one or more dogs while the other/s are out, then switch after so long.

Every dog is different so it's kinda hard to say. Just be aware that as maturity sets in they may not be so good of friends anymore. My boy turned on around 2 as well but still gets along with my sisters female GSD mix, and totally enjoys running and bouncing around with little puppies. Other big dogs not so much He also loves our little tabby cat. Those two do just about everything together and he's never showed the slightest bit of aggression towards the cat at all. The cat will pounce him and he'll shove him with his nose but he's never even tried to mouth the cat at all. I think they got a pretty good thing going lol.

Like its been said, it depends. You typically see the DA come out about a year old or so. Ive seen pics of dogs on here with cats, and other small dogs, and they act fine. However, some dogs, like mine, will completely lose thier s#!t when near anything that looks like a football with legs, but be just fine with same sized dogs. Honestly, I wish I could give an answer, but the nature of the breed is both predictable, and spontanious, at the same time. Only time can really answer that question. Good luck, and I hope everything goes over well for you and yours!

You just have to watch your dogs and never leave them unattended for an accident. I have a Chihuahua mix who gets along fine with my DA dogs. Not with all, but with many DA is more of an issue with bigger dogs than little dogs. A dog with high prey drive can end up having issues with little dogs even if it is not DA. You just need to watch and be aware.

I raised my Pit Bull mix with other dogs, so I can only give you my perspective on this. Keira is very maternal and loves babying the other animals of the household. We have a Min Pin/Chihuahua mix and a Mini Poodle, as well as two cats, only one of which that was raised with her- we adopted the other this past November. It's not an uncommon afternoon sight to see the community sleeping area (a bog dog bed on top of Keira's crate) covered in what seems to be blobs of random colored fur- 5 different colors to be precise
Keira is just over 2 years old now and I may seem to be the careless furmommy type but I have always been super careful with the furries. I train for harmony in my household when at all possible. I don't tolerate the alpha thing, they all look to me for guidance when something goes wrong. We also HIGHLY believe in crates in this house. All three dogs get crated when we leave the house. At bed time, we rotate depending on my husband's schedule. If he works overnight, I generally let Keira sleep with me. But that's rare. Most nights, I crate Keira and the poodle, and the Min Pin/Chihuahua mix generally sleeps with my daughter. I am a stay at home mom, so I can supervise my animals during the day, so they pretty much have free roam of the house. Play is structured. NO TOYS unless I am RIGHT THERE. I keep them in a child proofed cabinet that is too high for my kids to reach when it's not toy time- this also goes for chew toys and bones. These, they can have in their crates at night as well, since there is no chance of a fight. My dogs have never shown any inclination to fight, BUT, it's always better to b safe rather than sorry. Just my side, from the resident furmommy <3

I never thought of the toy or bone situation. I should do that now for my dachshund and toy poodle can get mad abt them. I haven't crate any of them but started on jade. Should I do the others .. Dachshund and one Yorkie sleeps with us. The older Yorkie sleeps alone in her bed under the bed. Poodle sleeps in his own bed beside me. I may put up the toys and bones unless I'm there or at night.
