help request

I need some advice PLEASE..... I am a new owner of pitbull puppy and have raised this breed before so I know something isn't right..... She is a deaf or just good at ignoring us and I'm not sure how to crate train her. She will make this horrible LOUD and disrespectful noise when she is put in but now she will not eat or drink anything at all..... This is the first time she's done it and I'm concerned because she looks thin to me... Should I take her to the vet or give her more time? Oh yeah now all she has been doing is sleeping, but literally on top or right under one of us...

Any information is greatly appreciated and TYIA.....

How old is the puppy? Are you feeding her what she was being fed at her last home? Post some pics please. Host the pic through sharing sites like IMGUR then copy paste the image link into the thread.

no diahrrea/soft stool or vomiting ?got to keep the pup hydrated somehow . id syringe feed her pedialyte or something , tomlyn high calorie paste always has worked for me to stimulate appetite in dogs that might be under the weather and supplements as well.

My friend, you have something called a little shit. But do not be afraid because I have TWO of them. You got a dog that is more human than dog and has a little attitude. I allowed both my pits to sleep all over us and with us because it’s a privilege for them to do that and makes the bond concrete with your dog. Regarding the crate training, it has to be done no matter how horrible it seems. I only got my boy to learn to go into the crate by saying the word “Crate” then giving him a treat when he goes in. But I had to get him a friend so he would stop trying to gnaw open the metal... also regarding the sleeping, the puppy is just a puppy and some pups either sleep all day or not at all. But from my experience that will change in time. Just love your baby and train them the best you can but I have found out no matter how hard I tried the problems would resolve themselves in time. Just like a child you’re going to have to sacrifice a lot for your baby. If you do it right you will have a baby that will love you no matter what!

How old is your pup? How long have you had her? Was she fully weaned and on solid food before you got her? Are you offering the same puppy food?

She may simply be afraid because this is all new to her. But when in doubt, always get a vet check. Puppies can go downhill REALLY FAST and if there is a medical issue you want to know ASAP. It could be something simple like an ear infection that can be cleared up quickly, or, if left untreated can result in deafness. In addition, she's never been solo before. Mom and the sibs were always there before.

If indeed deaf, you want to learn about teaching visual signals and that she needs to turn and look at you for guidance. A small pen light flashed on the ground can be taught to mean turn and look at me. I've even seen a light used in a simple Morse code for complex signals in Rally competition (WCRL and C-Wags allow handicapped dogs to compete). Special needs can be difficult, especially in the begining, but not at all insurmountable.

As for crate training, this is probably totally new to her, too. The crate should be a safe haven and presented as a fun (or quiet) place to hang out. There are loads of YouTube videos showing crate games. I like to offer super treats for entering and have snuggle toys available in the crate. Keep puppy safety in mind: offer chewable items only when you are around to make sure she doesn't accidentally swallow a choking hazard. The hard part is the with dogs that eat their bedding--and then develop a blockage that requires surgery. You do not need to close the door in the beginning of training. Encourage her to nap in the crate, closing the door for a few minutes at a time and then when opening it up, make sure to treat IN the crate. Look up also "Puppy Culture". It's the best resource for starting a puppy right.

Got some baby pix?
