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 !
