Very well said ladies. It's perfectly fine to like or buy your favorite color but you shouldn't get a pup lacking health or temperament just because of the color. Making sure the pup is healthy should always be first.

Is your dog primary function to be a pet? If so his color is fine, as long as you are happy with. If your out proving your dog, IE catch work, schutzhund, agilty color should be your last thought

Dogs can be bred in beautiful colors, however too many people have no idea what they are doing when they breed and try to get a pretty color and end up with a horribly built dog because they were only looking at the colors not health, temperament and structure.

I love color, but I love function more. These are dogs I have owned in a variety of colors. No colors are rare or even close to it ( especially blue as it is one of the most over bred colors out there). Color is important since you do have to look at it everyday when you see your dog, but it should not be a factor when it comes to which dogs to breed.

if an 8wk old apbt puppy is brought into a house of year old dogs (labs/huskies-sweet and well mannered) and is raised around them, should they ever be left to play together? or is that just something that should never be allowed?

Not sure if this was noted but APBT need and thrive on attention. I my opinion no other dog compares, but if your not putting in time, your probably not getting all out of your dog. Let it be around people as much as possible. Learn its habits. What it does when its bored. Watch for these things. Take on walks daily. If u can't spend a lot of time with your dog you may have got the wrong dog.

I'm glad I found this forum, and this topic. As I posted in my intro, I just adopted a puppy from the Humane Society, and I've been browsing around to learn everything I can. I'm prepared for others' ignorance, though I still find it incredibly annoying.

I've always been of the opinion that there are no bad dogs, just bad owners. I mean, when my mother had Maggie, our shepherd mix, she was out of control. My mother would not let something as trivial as some animal dampen her social life (her words, not mine). So the poor animal spent a good 90% of her time in a crate, or outside pen. Maggie couldn't even do simple obedience things, let alone things like walk on a leash, so my mother never put her on one, because it was too much bother. Now that we have her she is much better behaved. It took a lot of time and patience.

I'm hoping that experience with an animal aggressive breed will help us if our new family member does turn aggressive. Gabby, our Karelian, is very animal aggressive, as was her mother, so we had to go through quite a bit getting them to be okay around other dogs and the cats.

Because of this I completely agree about dog parks. We would never take Gabby, or Kita when she was still alive, to a dog park. We know that even though they were very well trained, and very obedient, their innate desire to keep us safe from strange animals would be stronger. We have a neighbor with a little dog that she doesn't keep on a leash. I've had to pick Gabby up and carry her to keep her from killing that little dog. The only difference here is that since Karelians are such a rare breed in the US Gabby won't be instantly blamed even if she didn't start it. Apbt's have a notorious reputation in this country, and our little sweetheart Phantom would probably get put down if he ever killed that stupid little dog, even though he will be on a leash, and that dog is left to run loose.

We already crate the dogs when we're not home. It's mostly to keep them from getting into stuff, but yeah, fights could break out too. As it is, we're having trouble getting Gabby to accept Phantom. It's only been three days, so hopefully the issue can be resolved. I just think Gabby is getting to the age where she doesn't accept change easily, and she may be afraid the pup is her replacement.

Knowing your dog well is very important to their training. Gabby and Maggie are very different, for example. Gabby requires aggressive pack mentality training because of her breed, as well as individual personality. Maggie is an aim-to please drool face, so it upsets her when we're clearly mad at her. So far, Phantom seems to respond well to verbal reprimand. A firm 'no' usually gets the point across.

Thank you for this thread. I'm new to the forum and am educating myself because I have friends who own apbt and they socialize with my dog. They are rarely off leash together, usually after our morning walk. Now, I will make sure I keep an eye on them at all times...,and never leave them unattended.

Please continue to politely provide information to uneducated people such as myself and not assume some are idiots. Of course, I realize people can be still be idiots, but that is not always the case.

This is all good advise!

I want to ask why no dog park? I know my dog is only 4 months, but he LOVES the dog parks. We take him weekly and never had a problem. Should I stop taking him at a certain age? Or just stop right away.

My dog loves other dogs kids and people, so far no aggression signs. I know this can change in the future but I want to keep him as social as possible to try to avoid any aggression as he gets older. (I know around 2 they will become ("mature") because I have only been told this 99 times in my welcome post about how dumb I am for wanting a female for my male to have a friend.)

Sorry if I am asking repeat questions, I skimmed through the posts =)
