Exclamation New PR Razors Edge owner In (ATX)

Typing on phone so excuse typos and the auto correct

have been look good for a site to join and looks like this 8th the right place. I owned several APBT in the 9th but this is my first Bully. I have had him less than a day and have some questions I hope could be answered.

I talked to the breader and saw my pups parents plus 7 generation paper work on my Bully so other than a DNA test I will say it's legit. My pup was priced the lowest so I am assuming it was the runt. When I went there were two pups one was real friendly and every time I went down to show my potential pup some love this other one would jump in and still the show. My pup was not active at all, well let me scratch that The best way to describe it is he reminded me of eyor from whiny the poo.

As I am driving him home he pooped in the truck. Okay might be motion sickness so I'll let that slide. A little while later he th re we up. Now I'm a little worried but it can still be motion sickness. Fast forward I get him home and he walks around the hose and plays a little bit but still nothing like what I saw in his brother. I was told the dog was house trained but when I left to go to the store to get his collar and stuff my wife says your dog has pissed twice in the house. Okay, she said he was potty trained but he is in a new place so I will let that slide.

Okay fast forward I goto put on his collar he's fine, I snap on his leash he's find. I start to head out the door he doesn't budge. I pull him a little he screams like I'm killing him and is kerning around so I immediately take the leash off him. I have never experienced this behavior in and dog I have ever dealt with. Is my pup broken? Also his stool is loose.

Sorry he is 15 weeks old. And is current on his vet stuff. Do one more deforming dosage next week. He doesn't come when called or nothing. Is this just him getting use to a new place, he doesn't like me, he is damaged or what? I know this isn't your typical intro but this has been bugging me all day, I need answers and advice.

It's very normal for puppies to poop and throw up in the car. You just have to keep taking him on car rides to get him used to it. Don't feed him right before taking him on a car ride either, make sure he pooped as well before getting in the car. It just takes puppies time to get used to car rides.

I have never heard of a 15 week old puppy being fully house trained. The breeder might have said house trained but he probably meant paper trained or crate trained.

He reacted badly to the leash and collar because its the first time he has ever been on one and he is and older puppy. The breeder SHOULD have socialized him more and exposed him to the leash and collar. But they didnt so it's up to you, and don't worry it's not the end of the world. You just have to take things SLOW. Just let him get a feel of the house and get to know you and your wife. Show him where the door is to go out and bring him out often and praise him A LOT when he goes potty outside. Just put the collar on and let him adjust to that for a few days. Then put the leash on and let him run around with the leash on and you NOT holding the leash. Let him do this for a good week and THEN pick the leash up and simply walk him around the yard.
After he does good with that bring treats with you and take him for a very short walk around the street and use treats to keep him moving forward if he gets nervous or just let him stand there and take in all the new sights and smells. You have to understand that the breeder didnt take him out and socialize him so that is why he is not sure. But it's not too late or anything, you just need to be patient and let him adjust. I got one of my dogs when he was 5 months and he was way worse so just keep things positive and don't rush him.

Oh yes, car sickness. Xena has it bad and we are up to very short (10 minutes or less) trips in the car, anything longer than that and she will be very sick.

Funny story, one day I have an early vet visit with Xena, I wake up and let her out of her crate and we go down the hall to go outside. She tears off into the bathroom suddenly, I smell what caught her attention a second later: my cat scrapped on the bathroom rug. He is an outside cat so we don't have a litterbox, and SOMEONE (my bf and rookie will not fess up) did not let him outside before bed. She ate that turd in 1 second flat because I was RIGHT behind her. So we get ready and head out to the vet, two minutes before we pull in she puked. Oh. My. God. Cat poop puke is the WORST thing I have ever smelled hands down. I almost ran off the road!

Coach has great suggestions! One thing I will add is after your puppy adjusts to the collar and leash so it isn't scary, if he does refuse to move for some reason don't continuously pull to get him going. I had have really good luck with some short, gentle tugs to get them on their feet and calling them happily. Good luck with your new puppy!

Thanks for the reply, I will try this. I went bought a collar more his size and I will admit I drug him a little to get him going, he screamed and resisted but eventually he walked reluctantly and very slowly with his head down. I know I was wrong but he is to big to hand carry outside every time he needs to potty. I mean when I call him he doesn't come I have to carry him. In the house he would follow me a little, but I see he likes to hang around the kids. I think he hates me, could a dog just not like someone?

Not frustrated just disappointed in my self for not knowing how to connect with him.

Well he is probably afraid of you because he got dragged around when he wasn't comfortable...I'd just spend a lot of time with him. Let him watch TV with you cuddling him, give him treats, try training him to sit, give paw etc. Positive obedience training bonds owners with their dogs really well!
When you want him to come, make a big goofy deal about it-- act really excited and get down low at his level and open your arms up and then slowly back up. When he comes over give him a treat and praise him. Have another person 6-7 ft away do the same thing and go Back and forth with that...
It might help if you do a little research on basic training for puppies

Why did you take him?

At 15 weeks, if he hasn't been socialized much, you have quite a lot to do. I would assume he doesn't know much of anything and you will have to back up and act like he's a 7 week old or something.

The first 16 weeks are critical, but if he is genetically sound, he should catch up.


That all being said, I think that, in general, it's hard to get a decent dog from anyone that breeds "bullies". I find it fascinating that someone that had
APBTs in the past would be interested at all in that style of dog... could you tell me why that is?
