Pit Bull aggression

I have a 3 yr old female pit. I took her from some "people" that were abusing her. I got her at 6 mos. old and she weighed 20 lbs, had mange, 4 types of worms, and she cowered at everything. She now weighs 83 lbs, has no mangs, worms and is VERY confident. Her name is ZUZU, after the little girl in "IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE" movie. She has begun to attack our 9 yr. old female Rott mix for no reason. She has drawn blood on at least 4 occasions. This started within the last year. She bullies and intimidates Lil on a regular basis. They get the same treatment, treats, care. The only difference is their food, because ZUZU is allergic to virtually everything. She eats Salmon and sweet potato food while Lil eats just about anything she can get in her mouth. I have had ZUZU to the vet several times about this. He put her on PROZAC. It really doesn't help much. Maybe takes the edge off a bit. It's almost impossible to keep them apart since they are both house dogs. We don't believe in chaining a dog to a fence and throwing food at it once in a while. I would appreciate any help you could give. Thanks..........Jim

These dogs are known for their dog aggression. It's not the case with all but it is VERY common.

Best advice: crate & rotate.

Giving one up is not an option and not right, you don't want to kennel them outside(I'm not disagreeing with you) so if I were you I'd look into crating & rotating. Many people on here do it

DM is right. It is common. Crate and rotate is where you place one dog in a room or crate and have the other out. And after a while rotate them so the one that was out is out up and the one out up is out. There are lots of threads on it and many here do it very successfully and their dogs are happy well cared for and get plenty of attention.

Dog aggression is VERY manageable.

Keep them apart, it's not fair to your older dog to get bullied and beat up. It's completely possible to keep dogs apart in a house, people do it all the time, put one in a crate and let the other one out. Then switch them out. Use baby gates, tie downs, kennels, bedrooms, exercise pens, if the weather is nice and you have a safe yard setup rotate them in and out. I can keep up to 6 dogs completely separated in my house without crating anyone.
