Out of My 4 Dogs, 1 has been a Male ... Because of his Behaviors I now am Afraid to get another Male. I have the Opertunity for a Male or Female 8 wk old Pup. I'm looking for a freind for Diamond because ROCKY can not be trusted around her. My wife is telling me because Rocky is a DOPEY scaredy Cat that has bee a 11 yr PITA, She only wants another female. I myself would love the Larger Male and think Diamond might like a Boy around, But i am also sick of the way I know a male to act.( Because of the MODEL i Had) Im Hoping that you all tell me your Males are SMART/Loving/and Happy likr all my Females where and that I got a BAD Seed W/Rocky!!! The Only way i can explain my Experiance with ROCKy is this - Frantic, Selfish, Unpredictable Baby that will drive u absolutly nuts.
By selfish i mean HE is NOT a GOOD companion, He wants u to Pet him when He wants U to and thats it. If you touch him anyother time he growls.

Either way i will Fix my Pups, so dont base your Reply on Breeding, these are Family Pets.

My boy is smart/loving/ and happy. He does have a more dur dur dur personality where as my girl are usually more serious.

If you do get another dog I do hope you realize whatever sex you get they might grow up to hate eachother.

LOL..I guess thats No diferent than Humanes, hahaha..Anyway, yes Ive ben around Pits since 1994 when i worked for the Humane Society, so i understand they can be DA. The Pup I have now had great Parents that I spent time with to find out there temperment. There were other Dogs around them at the time also. So i think Diamond is going to be a easy going Sole ;) The Pup's that Im Considering are Owned by a Breeder that Also has a Pit Rescue. However she Only Fosters Non DA pits/Amstaffs and Bully's. They are all in the yard together during the Day and in the Barn w/her as she ownes Horses Etc... So I'm trying to Do my Home work so that I have the Best Chances Posible of everyone Getting Along.. If i get this Other Puppy this would be It Until I'm about 50, So i'd like to get the Other Pup now so it grows up with Diamond and my Kids.

Yep.If you're looking to get another pit type dog,then it may not matter what sex you get.I've known male/females that got along good and then some that didn't.I've known males that were spazzes and then some that were laid back.
It's the makeup in the dog that determines the factor.Look at how the parents and grandparents of said dogs act towards other dogs.And even then it's not a determining factor,but it may get you a closer match.

Nevermind.You responded before I could post quick enough.Darn you telephone to take my mind off things!lol
HAHAHA, Yeah all my dogs been Amstaffs/APBT/and Now a Bully Breed....
So do you Think that I got a Bad Seed w/ my male and that MOST males Are NOT DUMB and Selfish, and that They can be a Good Family Dog ? Or would you say Females will always have a Better chance of being more Family Orientated Pets ?

I have only had to female dogs. I actually perfer male dogs over female dogs. Mikado was the best dog a person could ever ask for. He was model therapy dog. I never really trained him anything yet I took him everwhere. People loved him. The same could be said for Montag( a non pit dog) Belva my dobie. I have had many rescues too and all the males are settled down and easy to work with as the females I have had had more temperment issues.

When I get my next dog ( am bully) I want a male.

If your male growls at you for touching him, yeahhh you got a bad seed. That is NOT good behavior in ANY APBT.

Course there are alll types of personalities. I personally have always had a male, currently that would be Edward (who is making me think he is a few bricks shy of a load) and he is a happy/great companion... LOTS of laughs..lmao

If your dog is growling at you just when you touch him, it sounds like he needs an attitude adjustment!!!

^^I hear that, mate. I don't like that either. I understand he's old and grumpy but I wouldn't have a dog that did that around too long.

My male is a big momma's boy. Even though he is only a baby and I do not yet know his true colors, he is much more affectionate, calm, and cuddly than my female. He is also very smart and attentive. The only issue I have had with him is that he is shy when potty training. He gets nervous about going outside.

I had issues with two males in teh home when they matured and both wanted to be boss, But the male I have right now is great with all 3 of my girls they can play and havent ever had a fight. However Im sure you know with this breed things can come up and as long as your prepared for it , you should be fine with whatever you decide. If I only had 1 female i would opt for a male for the second I find a female and male are less likely to fight then a male and male or female and female . But that could just be from the dogs iv been around each will vary. Got any pictures of the 2 pups?

Yeah, I got your other reply in my other thread also, TY. This thread was opened More because he made me "MALE SHY" lol..But i think like most have said, he's a bad Seed. I'm going to pick out a male 2day from that litter if all goes well. Bringing my Puppy to meet him etc.........and spend some more time with the Sire and Dam to make sure Im happy with them 2.

The male you're looking at is a real cutie pie, I love his look. What is his personality like?

You know that there's a chance of your pups not getting along when they're older, but I think you might have a better chance of household harmony with a male/female combo. Males make great dogs. I have a male named Rocky too (11 yr old lab mix) and he is smart, loyal and very affectionate. Not all males are like yours. :)
