Thanks for the muzzle recommendations. I've ordered the basket muzzle and expedited it here. I should be getting my dog towards the end of next week. Until Kane gets comfortable wearing the muzzle, they will be on strict crate-n-rotate.

One thing that I want to add, that might help people understand this situation better, is that both of my bosses, as well as the trainer I'll be working with, KNOW what Kane did to Ellie. I didn't sugar-coat it. I told them, point-blank during the interviewing process (multiple interviews with everyone), that Kane HAS killed another dog, this was the situation in which he killed the other dog (I left them unsupervised, play got out of hand, etc).

They know all of that and are comfortable with it. One of my bosses owns a pit bull, the other one has family with one, and the trainer has worked with pit bulls. They aren't unfamiliar with the breed and biased by the media. They're probably like I was, and naive to the potential of these dogs with DA, as I can tell you they were shocked when I told them what Kane had done, BUT, like I said, they're comfortable with the risk they are taking. I out-lined the steps I'll be taking to prevent anything in the future (hello, supervision, among others), I've told them the "signs" I'll be looking for (as Kane is not a dog that attacks seemingly out of nowhere), etcetc.

And yes, to answer your questions, I WILL be letting them meet on leash to allow them to satisfy their curiosity about each other. I live in a small house and if they're curious about each other (which I'm sure they will be), I want their curiosity to be satisfied OUTSIDE in case of any issues.

I know I made a mistake before, but that's an experience I've learned from, have done MORE research on than I had before (since obviously what I knew previously wasn't enough to prevent my stupidity from killing one of my dogs), and won't be repeating again. I'm not naive anymore to the potential of DA in Kane.
I know this is old but the highlighted reasons are why the trainer and your boss do not understand this breed. Any trainer that really knows this breed would not be shocked at all by the death of the pup. I just hope you stay on top of it and allow them only to be only leash and in a controlled setting when around each other. Even a muzzle can do damage or get taken off if not on right. Hope it works for you.
