Ronin !

Hey guys, So I went ahead and took the chance to pick up a pit in a bit of a bad situation. His current family didnt have the money to take care of him although I must admit they seemed to love him very much and had him on some decent food and some good treats.

He at this point has no shots, needs his dew claws taken care of and deffinently needs a bit more weight put on him. All of which is under way, the only thing that troubles me and I hope the commuinity could help me out with is that he is very vocal around other dogs, my girlfriends neighbor happens to own a pit and when they where introduced to each other today Ronin almost immediately started to growl and bark.

The other dog licked away at him as he did so and apparently Ronin did not react any further. I was unforunently not around to see his body language while he was doing so ( my girlfriend had taken him outside to do his yardly duties).

Now.. should he turn out to be a bit dog agressive what should I look twoards doing to curb this at an early age.. im fairly well adept to dealing with large working class breed dogs I just have yet to train one that may be slightly dog agressive. Now of course thats not to say he is, I still want to see his body language she was unable to tell me if his tail was wagging or if he had his ears back or anything of that type.. she was a bit shocked by his reaction.

Here's a picture of the guy, unforunently the only one I was able to snap before my damn camera died.. stupid batteries !

wow he's super cute!
having said that, it is not uncommon in pit bulls for them to have dog aggression. if he is showing signs, it's probably best not to let him play with any other dogs.

Ya, I figure as much.. Is their any chance alot of socialization will at least make him tolerant of other dogs ? He's got play dates tomorrow with a ridge back, a boxer, a great dane and a pitbull/lab. Im hopen I can get a good look at his attitude twoards other dogs tomorrow. Specially when he sees pooches like the ridgeback and the dane that resemble more of a horse then a dog.

Edit: I know I'd never allow him to ever be alone... even if he didnt show aggression with any dog just because of their strong predator drive I wouldnt want to see it trigured. I'm just hoping he can be tolerable of other dogs, I know you can work with them as such to basically train them to ignore other dogs and only focus on me and my commands but that is more of a distraction then a solution imo.

I would work with him more on leash with other dogs first. Play dates aren't really advised for pit bulls. Although my girl gets along fine with my friends pit bull so well that I call it her boyfriend. But I've had her since she was tiny and know her like that back of my hand.
