he tires my pitbull out. its is VERY important no matter what other dog you get, you HAVE to always be on top of them in case somthing happens. even if both are amazing dogs, things happen.
good luck i hope everything works out

i hope you find this useful in some way (:

Thank you , I did find this very helpful , Izzo is a verrry submissive dog as well and I dont worry about her with other dogs , she seems to get along fine with my moms miniature schnauzer . Its more me that doesnt want the small dog lol =]

We never leave the dogs alone together and they are both crated when we go to work or have to leave the house for any length of time. It works out well for us since Loki is very toy driven and she just wants to follow him around and do what he does. She won't fetch unless Loki is fetching. It's a fun game for her. He doesn't even notice she is there when he is fetching, he is all about the chew toys - she might as well be a fruit fly, hehe.

thank you .. this is what I plan on doing when we get a second.

I own a Bull Mastiff and a APBT now, I had two serious incidents. One where we were all in the backyard and it took both my husband and myself to break up the fight. The other was my husbands fault, yep I blame him, I was at work. The aggressor was my Mastiff in both incidents. We live the crate n rotate lifestyle. Prior to this I owned a Aussie, Rottie and the Mastiff. My Aussie kept things under control. They knew she wouldn't tolerate anything, my Mastiff tried to become leader of the pack and she let him know just where he stood (all she had to do was bare her teeth) and he backed down. Be cautious with a Aussie they are herding dogs. They will try to herd, your Pit may accept it sometimes but there is always a chance she will change her mind.

Well as of right now we are looking into maybe a australian shepard , not 100% positive yet .. we want a high energy dog that fits into the lifestyle we already live with Izzo . Do you have any breeds maybe you could suggest ?

Herding dogs and Pits just don't mix very well. The herding dogs are like to herd and your pitbull might not tolerate this as the years go by. Herding dogs and almost any other dog don't mix actually. They like to control the situation. I fostered an Aussie once and let's just say I was glad when the Aussie got adopted...lol
I would definitely suggest either a Shepherd mix or even a Hound mix. My friend has a pitbull and a Ridgeback hound mix and they are both VERY active and get along well.

I got an ACD,look at my avvy.and my G/F has a border mix.they are better at sensing an animals instinct or nature better than probably any other breed.they are bred for it,period.the thing we can't change is A dogs primal instinct.and to try to determine what dogs suit what,when you also have human personality as the mediator,is lookin for trouble.
thats why I tell folks,I do not own dogs,I manage them.

That is great that your dogs do well together. From my experience and from many of my friends' experience they don't do well together at all. Glad to hear that yours do!

i 100% agree with this post ^^
my blue heeler is constantly nipping at my pitbulls heels.
luckly the only thing on my pitbulls mind is playing but as the years go on i feel she may get annoyed of this.. which wont be good
my blue heeler shows little interest in playing ( they do, but not often) for the most part my cattle dog just sits in a corner watching my pit play with my jack russle.

as far as what breed i suggest, i really have no idea but i would not go with a cattle dog/herding dog. i would agree and say a shepherd mix
these dogs scored lowest on the aggerssion scale..

Basset Hound

Golden Retriever

Labradors

Siberian Huskies

Greyhounds

just to name a few

We own a female shih tzu that is 3yrs old with Dozer that is 15mo. old. We had the Shih tzu since she was pup and brought Dozer into our home when he was around 4mo. They are great together, PopTart (the Shih Tzu) beats up on Dozer all the time! he lets her jack him up, then he will have a turn and chase her around but is never mean to her. If he accidentally makes her yelp he runs! He knows poptart is comming for vengence lol! its so funny to watch!... She is like his little sister, Extremely protective of her!... I hope all works out for you! So far its working for us!

I second the hound recommendation. We had a Ridgeback before we got Maggie (pitbull) and Jake (coonhound). Aside from the coonhound vocals the hounds have displayed similar temperaments. Maggie and Jake get along and I think part of the reason, aside from being opposite sex, is that although they are both energetic they have separate interests. In other words they play but they don't necessarily compete. He could care less about her toys for instance. She's a pushy little miss bossy pants and he doesn't mind her being FIRST for everything.

Anyway, in my opinion, I think hounds don't "match" with pitbulls but sorta "complement". Good luck with whichever breed you choose.

There may be some breeds with the temperament to be a better "fit" with a apbt, but at the end of the day if DA comes up its not going to matter what other breed of dog you own.

No matter what kind of dog it is don't put faith in your dog to not become DA, as it can appear at any given time or age no matter how pleasant the history prior may be.

Get a breed you want, limit the time frame they can be together with heavy supervision and break sticks within reach, crate and rotate, etc is the only safe method.
