Exclamation New to This

Hello everyone! My name is Kearston and I'm the proud new owner of my two month old Pitt, Diesel! Diesel has been a dream puppy thus far, aside from a little raucous hysteria when first kenneled he moans and whines to let me know its time for a potty break. He got his first shots the day I got him but I'm almost certain he's got worms for the amount he eats and how bloated his belly is when he sits, but how far his ribs stick out while he stands. He has gorgeous Blue eyes and I really wasn't expecting such a wonderful temperament. I'm a little nervous about his biting, he doesn't snap at my hands but he likes to use my pants legs as chew toys and my calves as neck bones. I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing and I really hope this isn't a sign of a biting issue. My husband thinks the breed is extremely dangerous and I will only be allowed to keep him if I can socialize him and keep him well mannered. I love this little monster so much already! Any and all tips would be appreciated!!!

Well in my opinion the biting at pants an stuff is normal he is a puppy. I have a 9 week old pup to an she loves to grap my pants when im walking lol... But i just stop give her a firm NO an she usually calms down but its mainly just her wanting to play as all puppies do. But it wouldnt hurt to put ur pup in obedience classes if u have the time an money for that. Unfortuantly i dont have the time due to my work but i do work with her on my own from past experiences when i went to obedience classes with my last pit. Which his name was diesel also

Sounds like a great addittion to your family! I love the name Deisel. I have a 5 month old Blue Pit and her name is Dixie. I was having the same problem as you with the chewing not biting! Get a bunch of rawhides and that should help. Where Deisel is only about 2 months old the puppy teeth are falling out and the adult teeth are coming so I would say that Deisel is teething really bad and they will chew alot when they are going through this. Rawhides, Rawhides, Rawhides!!! It will help ya a bunch!! Hope you have a great day!!

Pitbulls are only dagerous when they have bad owners. When we will people stop blaming the breed and start holding the bad owners accoutable instead of discriminating against the whole Pit Bull Breed?? I wish that would change!!

Welcome to GP! First things first, get him dewormed. When I bought a dewormer for my foster dog it was only like $15. Second, get him some chew toys of his own, like a Kong. anytime he starts chewing on u, correct him and give him his Kong instead. Or what I did for both my dog and my foster, when they do bite/chew too hard I say 'owww' as loud as I can to startle them, then stand up and walk away, signaling that play time is over. Ur pup is young and just needs to learn what is ok or not.

This is a great breed but a lot of responsibility. Read through the training section and any stickies that relate to puppy socialization and bite inhabition.

Diesel had his first vet appointment today and did indeed have worms. He's on a deepened for the next three weeks and he started his flea and heartworm preventative since Mosquitos are really bad in our area! Also, I should probably mention that I have a rescue Maltese that has web quite difficult and quite rewarding, she is fixed but has embraced her motherly instincts and Xena is having alot of fun romping and playing with Diesel! There are some jealousy issues and I try to spend an equal amount if time ans attention in both although I admit to cuddling with Diesel a bit more! Also the vet said he is a American bull staffordshire a deviation of the pitbull. I doń rrally understand breeds but it has something to do with his snout and head shape. If anyone can give me more insight on this I'd be glad to hear it! Also I've been browsing the forums all day! Thank for the welcome and all the advice!!

Hello Kearston,

First, congratulations on your new little boy Diesel. Second I am glad to hear that you brought him to the vet which was going to be my suggestion.

Lastly, to get a better understanding of what breed of dog you may have click HERE and give the thread a read.

Enjoy your little boy. I am sure that whatever his breed is, he's wonderful/

Joe
