Usually male and male, female and female don't get along. It would be better for you to get that female for Rex. JMO

TY for your reply. I want to at least foster him till I can find him a suitable home. He is so emaciated that I am extremely worried. He is the same height and skull size as Rex who is 67 lbs, but I would be very surprised if Bronx weighs more than 40 lbs. He has no muscle mass and i can see his ribs and hip bones. I was at the house where he is kept yesterday and he had no food, I gave him some Christmas leftovers to tide him over, my boyfriend took him for a walk. And he is stuck in a house with no heat. He lives in the livingroom with an unsafe space heater that is on 24/7. I'm scared he will either starve to death or end up trapped in the house during a fire. I'm gonna go there today with a bag of dog food for him, and hopefully convince his owner to turn him over to me. Even if things can't work out at my house, he is safer with me until I find him a loving home with a warm bed, clean water, and lots of food and toys.

its good to wait till your dog is at a training level in which your happy with, and has mannors. it makes it easier, they will help train your new pup.

2 dogs...

Thank you for posting this! I was actually coming on to ask about this exact topic.

We have a 3 year old male pit mix. He is our only dog and is spoiled beyond belief lol.

I work at a vet, and may have the chance to foster a puggle puppy, about 3 months old, also male.

Does anyone have any tips for making it all go smoothly. I'm not even sure if I will be taking the puppy, but I want to do some research.

My pit isn't aggressive toward our cats or humans. He hasn't had much experience with other dogs though.

Thanks!!!

i give props on this sticky bro. i wasnt really thinking about getting a second dog just yet but it made me realize that i really do need to postpone that thought for aminute. the one pit that i do have isnt aloto of work but during my workweek it is. the weekends we interact alot and that is where i would have the time for a second dog, otherwise im just going to stick with one right now. great post

I AGREE COMPLETELY. I NEVER THOUGHT IN A MILLION YEARS MY TWO BABIES WOULD FIGHT. BELIEVE IT OR NOT ON CHRISTMAS DAY OF ALL DAYS MY WORST NIGHTMARE CAME TRUE. I STILL TO THIS DAY AND THAT WAS 2005 DO NOT KNOW WHY OR WHAT HAPPENED THAT MADE THEM FIGHT. IM NEW HERE GUYS AND ILL POST THE PIX OF MY BABIES AS SOON AS I GET A SEC. SO YOU CAN SEE HOW COMPLETELY INSEPERABLE MY TWO DOGS WERE. MY BEST FRIEND NAMED THEM PETE AND REPETE. THEY SLEPT HOLDING EACH OTHER AND THEY WERE SO TIGHT. WHAT SCARED ME WAS THAT MY EX AND I HAD GONE OUT THE NIGHT BEFORE AND LEFT THEM ALONE TOGETHER. I DONT KNOW WHAT I WOULD HAVE DONE IF I CAME HOME TO ONE BEING DEAD. AFTER THAT DAY I CRIED ALL XMAS DAY TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO NOW. I HAD TO SEPERATE THEM BECAUSE MY FAMILY WAS SCARED AND I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO LIKE AN IDIOT I GUESS DIVES RIGHT ON IN AND FIGHTS OR SHOULD SAY BREAKS THEM UP. NO BODY WANTS TO GET IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT. I KNEW IN MY HEART NEITHER ONE OF THEM WOULD HURT ME AND AFTER ABOUT 10 MORE OF THOSE UNFORGETABLE FIGHTS I WAS FORCED TO MAKE THE HARDEST DECISION OF MY LIFE AS TO WHICH ONE OF MY BABIES I HAD TO LET GO OF. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO GIVE MY OLDEST YET MY FIRST BABIE BACK TO MY EX HUSBAND WHO HAD BEEN ON VACATION IF YOU WILL AT THE GREY BAR MOTEL FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS . SO I WAS LEFT HEART BROKEN AND WITHOUT MY BLAZE. SO MY POINT BEING. YOU NEVER KNOW EVEN IF YOU WOULD BET YOUR LIFE ON IT, WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN BETWEEN YOUR KIDS. I STILL I GUESS WILL NEVER HAVE CLOSURE ON WHAT MADE THEM FIGHT. WAS IT A KONG, OR DID MY GIRL FEATHER ACT LIKE A LITTLE BITCH THAT DAY CUZ US GIRLS DO THAT, OR I COULD GO ON AND ON. I WILL NEVER KNOW... SO I CAN NEVER LEARN FROM ANY MISTAKE I MAY HAVE MADE OR ANYTHING. I DONT HAVE ACTUAL HUMAN CHILDREN AND I NEVER WILL OF MY OWN, BUT THOSE 2 BABIES WERE MY KIDS, AND I FELT LIKE I WAS A BAD MOTHER AND ONE WAS TAKEN FROM ME. I CANT IMAGINE IF THAT HAPPENED TO ME IF I DID HAVE HUMAN CHILDREN AND I CHOOSE NOT TO . I JUST FOUND OUT THAT MY BABIE BLAZE THE ONE I HAD TO GIVE UP NOW HAS CANCER AND IM DEVESTATED. MORE I THNK THAT I CANT BE THERE FOR HIM EVERY DAY. SO I REALLY ADMIRE THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE AND CONTINUE TO ADD MORE THAN ONE TO THEIR FAMILY BECAUSE I WISH I COULD BE REPLYING THE WAY YOU ALL ARE. BUT THERE IS ANOTHER SIDE TO THAT AND IN MY CASE I WASNT SO LUCKY. I DO WISH YOU ALL GOOD LUCK I JUST DONT THINK I COULD EVER PUT MYSELF THROUGH THAT AGAIN. SO ONE IS ALL EMOTIONALLY I CAN HANDLE. IF YOU LOVE YOURS AS I DO MINE, ITS NOT WORTH LOSING ONE OR BETTER YET HAVING TO CHOSE ONE. I HAVE TO LIVE WITH THAT DECISION FOREVER AND IT HURTS.. I HAVE THE SCARS INSIDE AND OUTSIDE TO PROVE IT. ILL POST THOSE PIX ASAP SO YOU CAN SEE THE LOVE AND YOU TOO WILL BE JUST AS CLUELESS AS I STILL AM.. THANKS GUYS..

We add a dog to the family all the time lol. China is 2, Aries is 1 and Bud is 6 months. They all get along great. I'm already feeding one why not two? I'm already feeding two, why not one more? I don't think I'm getting anymore though lol.

i think that dogs also need company besides that of a human. although i also belive that while the owner is away, either the dogs behave and play with eachother well or stay seperated during the duration. you can take care of 2 or more dogs but they also have to be comfortable with each other, pretty much meaning that one has to accept that the other is the alpha or the dominant canine. if not then there will be problems, thats a given. if you cannot seperate them while you are gone and they continue to have problems then it is problly best to get rid of one or the other. although that seems to be hard for us dog lovers. but you also have to think about whats best for your companions.
fighting is serious, and there is a difference between play fighting and full contact of your dogs aggressivly mauling eachother. you should be able to tell the difference either between the tone of their growls from the other room, or by the way they act when they are going at it if you are watching them play\fight. a good dog owner can tell the difference right away. and playing can turn into fighting in the snap of your fingers. so you will need to quickly learn the different temperment tones that your dogs have. furthermore the choice is up to you to have just one dog or having any more, but like the song goes... You Got To Keep E'm Seperated.

awesome post! After reading this I am proud to say I have done everything the right way! Even down to treating them differently as to what they can handle individually. Great! When buying toys we must buy 2 of whatever we get!...They still try to fight over the same thing, but we keep a close eye on them when the toys are still fairly new.

This is a great post. Thank you for the information. Our family recently introduced a new male puppy. Unfortunately we have a two year old male that we have had for almost a year. Luckily they are both crate trained and we curtail any puppy biting we see that is inappropriate. I worry about the dogs being home with my wife one day and getting into a fight though. Maybe I can convince my wife to trade the pup for a female puppy or just sell him since he is only 12 weeks old now and just live with one dog.

We use to have two males but they got into a huge fight while I was at work and my wife was trapped in the bathroom until our neighbor came over and separated them. I just don't want to have to go through that again.

What is a staffordshire pit? I have ne'er heard of that before. You can take a gamble but time will tell if the two can get along. Try both have combat genetics and one may start a fight and they other could end it. Same sex pit dogs pairings can be extremely Dangerous and not recommended for a beginner.

I want a second dog every day .I was hurt on the job over a year ago and had 2 surgerys on a torn biceps .and now I have complete nerve damage in my left arm and can't lift anything over 10 pounds.so it would be real hard to have second pit but at the same time I have all the time in the world to raise a puppy during this long court battle.and its hard being home all day when you are use to working every day you get depressed and my pit is the only thing that makes me happy.so decisions decisions
