My new Abrazo Azul...Help please



We just picked up this boy off CL... well we were looking for a friend for our German Shepherd coyote mix... Nandi is 1.5yrs old. They told us Abrazo is 9 months. He weighs 50 - 55 lbs and seems to be figuring it out, very smart and has been learning and earning the past week.

My issue is this, he has an obsessive behavior where we have implemented a no toy rule... they got into a small scuffle over a big stick and any toy Nandi will go for is his... also he gets in the middle of everything any attention he can get away with. We make our dog sit and settle and stay and leave it and he seems to know those but he was a backyard dog and now he has the house and the yard. Also he has excessive paw and ball licking and I'm not sure if it's allergies or what. I switched their food to 4 health but I'm nervous and just want to do this right. I have always had and been around pits but never gotten as a rescue from an unknown background.

Welcome!

Please just keep them separated when they have high value items such as toys, sticks, treats, etc. Resource guarding from other animals is a normal dog behaviour. The best way to handle it is through management. Don't set them up to fail.

As for the licking of the paws and ball, it may be a couple separate issues. I find that most bull breeds I've met have been "licky" dogs in general. The licking of the paws could suggest allergy, or it may just be a compulsive behaviour. Either way, I'd take the dog into the vet for a check-up since you just got him, and mention it to the vet.

When my dog licks compulsively, I say a loud "aaaahh" to break the focus, then distract her with something else. You can try this.

Just a heads up: dog aggression is a trait that pops up in bull breeds frequently. You may find that as the dog settles in and matures that he becomes less tolerant of others dogs/animals. Bull breeds in general are not a good type of dog for a "friend" for another dog, and I actively discourage people from getting them if that's the reasoning behind it.

Just what type of "pits" have you been around and always had, that weren't "unknown?", that you could have around other dogs?

Hell, the first "pit" I knew killed a German Shepard, and every one I have owned wants to do the same to any GSD they see.
Bigger the other dog, the more they want to get it.

ApBT's are not pack dogs, and don't want buddies. Their mentality is, "there can be only one."

IDK how long people are going to take to learn the most simplest of facts about this breed.

Anyway, it is all about possession and jealously for your dogs, nothing to do with dog aggression LOL.

Oh, and that pup is not a "pit". Just a BYB, blue bully-type mix.

Well sir thank you for all your corrections... I've had all byb pits and chihuahuas and cats. The only one that wanted to eat everything was the male that was tied up, the female just wanted to ride on the tractor or in the truck or run the canals. One was black and brown (male) female was all white with red nose. Now those are the pits I grew up with, my uncle adopted an all black and he hates bigger dogs but his size and smaller is ok...

Now the shepherd we have is only 45 lbs maybe and she's about done growing. He already knows he is bigger than her but too goofy to win the dominant roll yet. They play and play hard. We've removed all toys besides 2 hard chews and antler and another bone. They've been good and will never be left together unsupervised.

Also they have been really good after running. They eat, play for a few then pass out. So far so good. Thanks for the advice, should have known better I guess, but hey who knew they weren't pack dogs until they either seen first hand or got on here... I admit I did not know they were not pack dogs, seems strange but it is what it is.

Hey, props for not taking offense at what I said.

You seem to know what sets them off, so just keep them from their moments of weakness.
Jealousy may play a part as well.

Oh, and it isn't really your fault for not having the correct knowledge of the ApBT breed.
More falsehood out there about this breed than any other.

Just understand, the mentality of the true ApBT is, more often than not, "there can be only one."


The problem with mixed breed "pits," though, is this: since they have cur dog in them (non-pit blood), anyone who attempts to break apart can be bit.

If you want to learn about the real ApBT, order some old Richard Stratton books. He has four written about the breed.
Most people begin learning from them, if they want to learn the true history and nature of the breed.
