You're going to have to crate and rotate. Once the dogs start fighting there's usually no going back to being friends. Sorry.

Spaying won't solve the issue. Dog aggression is a trait in the American pit bull terrier and dogs that are mixed with it. Usually it sets in about 1-2 years but can pop up anytime. Crate and rotate is the best solution. DA is manageable but not cureable.

Spaying might not do anything, and it might, who knows. Are they fighting over spots in the house? Toys? Food? Attention? What is the trigger? Just be prepared, no one should get rid of a dog because its not getting along with another in the house, especially when many pets live a GREAT HAPPY and HEALTHY life in crate and rotate situations. Get some baby gates to give them their own areas in your house/Apartment and keep them separated for a while. Let them relax and get used to not being attacked while living "together".

Pit Bull Rescue Central

Once you have that done, and know they can NOT fight and everyone is safe, you should look for a knowledgeable trainer to work on helping you manage their aggression. It will NOT be curable, but you might be able to manage it so they can be around the family at the same time without incident's once you learn their body language and their triggers.

Also pit has only 1 t. And do you even know if its is indeed an APBT? It could just be a mixed breed dog that looks like what people think a pit bull looks like. My point is, yes APBT are known to be Animal aggressive, but there are plenty that are not and plenty that are. Each dog is different so just take some time, read through the stickies on here and ask as many questions as you can! We are here to help!

now that you know what can happen, you can never leave them alone now.
continue to nip it in the bud quick. to begin with you may have to get a little harsh, but they have to know that's unacceptable behavior.
then after a while of correcting them, you may be able to get by with an AAATTTTT!!!!

if you dont stop it your gonna have issues.

good luck

do you think that both of them in heat has anything to do with it? i know that not all dogs are the same but my friend has the mom brother and sister and they all get along well. im total upset about this and really dont know what to do. I dont want her to hurt anyone either bc when she is outside she is extremlly protective and the way she charges and cars that pass is crazy i cant even tell you how many chains and collars she has broken. my black lab is very laid back. My pit is excellant with my girls she is very protective sometime you need to even watch when u r playing with them bc she will come over and snarl at you or will lightly snip at your arm or your hands

What you should so was explained above. You can try and spay them both, dont just do one and not the other. But you really sound like you need a trainer to help with basic manners as well as crate and rotate to keep them safe! Do you have questions on the link or what crate and rotate is? Many dogs live long healthy lives never being around other dogs.
