New red nose puppy raised with 2 other smaller dogs?

Hello, we currently have two dogs a female maltese/yorkie mix(8yrs) and a lhasa also boy (5yrs) , we are being given a red nose pitbull who will be 7 weeks when we get her, my concern is when we go to work would leaving all 3 dogs out would that be dangerous ? Even if the pit is raised from a puppy with these two we have , we have an apartment and didn't want to leave the dog in a crate for 7 hr mon thru Friday , what should I do as I really want to own this dog and raise it but I don't want my other two dogs to be hurt thank you for time

Welcome to the forum Idowonderz.
As much as you may want the new puppy this breed isn't for everyone. If the pup is an actual APBT or a mix of the breed it is prone to dog aggression. This is a genetic trait that cannot be trained out. These dogs a very high energy and require lots of physical and mental exercise and then some more exercise. There is a good possibility that the only way to keep the pup would be to crate and rotate and you would never be able to leave the dogs alone together. Do some research and reading before you committ to taking the new pup. Also, seven weeks is actually young to take the pup from it's mother. Hope this helps with your decision.

Joe

I have a 14 week old with 3 chihuahuas. They've been with her since she was 6.5 weeks old. She's now 18 pounds and the chihuahuas I have are 9, 8 and the littlest is 5 pounds. She will be around 100 pounds when fully grown and I'm not worried at all. You should be fine, just make sure to be present with them and let them know the new puppy is now part of the family.

Dont listen to this HORRIBLE advice.

You chi's are either morbidly obese or mutts and your "black pit" is supposedly gonna be about 30lbs heavier than any pure bred apbt I've seen in all my life....

Pit bulls aren't supposed to be over 70 lbs at the most. Average weight would be 55 lbs. A couple of bloodlines will occasionally have 70 lbs.

About the chihuahuas, they're actually a decent weight.

On the left is Issabella our 14 week old pit. Romeo the little blue chihuahua is on the right. He's 6 months old and they've been playing with each other since day one when Issabella was 7 weeks old. My 2 older chihuahuas are in fine shape. They have a lot of muscle mass because I feed them very well. They all get Orijen red and tundra dog food. I like to mix it up so they dont get burned out with the same thing. For dinner I make all of them home made wet dog food.

I've seen people with German shepherds and cats all hanging out with each other. Any good dog owner can master integrating different types of dogs and even train cats and dogs to get along too.

"not worried at all"... famous last words of every dog owner that ended up with a dead animal.
bull breed owners should be the most cautious of dog owners because we are the most scrutinized. when one of us screws up, we chip away at the credibility of the entire community. and we give BSL more ground to stand on.
YOUR dog may be compatible with YOUR other dogs. but telling another owner "you should be fine" without knowing them, or their dogs is a bad move.
it takes time to assess the true temperment of an animal. and once you know what you are working with, you should still never set the animal up for failure.
caution is the best practice.

I assumed OP was a responsible adult that has basic dog training skills.

I don't know what you're talking about but for decades I've lived with pits and they are the most loving and happy dog breed. My puppy goes to the window and watches for the mail man and she gets excited when he waves and says hi.

Dont let stereotypes make you act in such a manner. A dead animal can happen with any type of animal when a bad owner has them.

You’re wrong and it has nothing to do with basic obedience, genera dog knowledge or “how you raise them”. Jo is right and it has nothing to do with stereotypes. It’s fact when it comes to bull breeds.

Human aggression and dog aggression are two completely separate things. No bull breed should be aggressive towards humans; however, they are all genetically predisposed to be dog aggressive towards other dogs. Being a responsible owner and advocate for these dogs is knowing that, respecting that, and taking the necessary precautions to prevent that so that the stereotypes don’t continue and we don’t have to keep dealing with irresponsible owners causing problems such as BSL.
