Do you have any clue on what caused him to lunge at the dogs? Maybe food, or you were petting one of her dogs and it was dominance a act... But you do know DA is in the breed so it is something that will occur. My pup started doing the same thing around the same age as yours with my other two dogs. But I found out it was food aggression so I now know not to leave food on the floor around them. See if you can figure out what it is that is triggering him to just growl and lunge at them.

Are you certain it was aggression and not an attempt to play? Pit bull playing can be pretty rough and certainly can involve growling and pouncing - but generally precipitated by a play bow; and even it is play I would still be concerned about the little ones getting accidentally hurt; or perhaps your dog getting too aroused in play and it turning into aggression.

The easiest answer is crate and rotate; and if you feel you can have them all out together, only do so when you are 100% completely paying attention to supervising and managing the dogs interactions with each other.

And Cain is very noisy when he plays no contact though. He just pounces and makes a lot of noise and lion faces as we call it.

Lol thats my page! @pitbullsofchicago


And no it was not a play lunge usually he does that but this time we were all laying on the bed and he came and growled and got in the little ones face... If they get up to go walk around he lunges at them and growls... Its scary! My wife is like I told you so!

Athena would do the same thing with my room mates beagle. If the beagle was on the couch sometimes she would snap at him and this is the only place it would happen. Has this only happened on your bed? It could be a territorial thing. You MUST pay close attention when they are out. If you are watching you should be able to pick up what your dog is going to do just off body language. I would be able to tell if Athena was going to do something minutes before she actually would. Like others said you might have to crate and rotate. Good luck!

Maybe it's dominance? If they're too small for him to hump he may just be showing aggression. Are you planning on getting him neutered? That might help.

OK, they may never get along, you need to understand you need to get a good trainer as your dog grows so they can help you manage the possible aggression for BOTH BREEDS. The little dogs are ALSO know to be aggressive towards other animals, so I would be prepared to crate and rotate one day. I am not saying now, but you may have to have the dogs live separate, forever. Just be prepared for that.

Also, since your wife told you she didn't want the dog in the first place, you should have explained to her that the dogs MIGHT not get along one day, so she would NOT have a chance to say I told you so...

I thought your dog was a puppy? He is growing and there is NEVER EVER a guarantee that they will ever get alone. They may also live in harmony forever, but you need to be realistic and honest so you are not misleading anyone about the potential situation. You dont leave them alone together, right? Have you got a trainer yet? And sorry I thought your dogs were Chiwawas I don't know much about Shih Tzu's. Just keep in mind you CAN manage it with help and research. There are tons of threads on here about how to do that if you ant find them, let me know.

have you re-read this thread? My wife or my dog....
I am referring to the part when over and over people tell you to get a good trainer who works with bully breeds. Sooner the better!

and there is NO guarantee a neuter will help curve the aggression. Might help you to have your dog focus better on your training, but without a trainer a neuter will not cure anything...
