Hi everyone! My name is Kevin and I've had my pit bull zeke for four years now. I also have a chow chow. My pit is a male blue grey brindle. My chow is female. My pit is very energetic and always playful. He's great with my kids and pretty good when people come to the house with the exception of when they first walk in. He wants to b petted. He's sometimes over hyper and jumps on em, but when they r in and settled he's fine. He is very submissive to my chow. She's pretty much the boss even though he's double her size and weight. He's prob around 80 to 90 pounds and when he gets outta line she puts him in place. Never had a fight between them, just playfulness. He of course has way more energy and over does it but she will let him know when it's time to quit and he usually does but sometimes I have to separate him from her cuz he's persistant and he's a brute and can be a bully. Lol. My chow is now 13 and just wants to chill and not have his big *butt always in her grill wanting to play. Now to what I really need advice on! My girl friend bought a puppy. A pit and korso mix. Female. She brought her over a few times to introduce the two. The first time. I held the puppy and let zeke come up on me. He tried taking her paw in his mouth and pulling her. Nothing hard though and right away I pushed him down. The second time my girlfriend help the puppy and he jumped at her and went to nip the puppy but got my girls fingers. It wasn't hard. Since then we would just put her in her crate while zeke is out. And he paws at the cage. Occasional licking through cage. He does show signs of wanting to play. Tail always wagging. Chest to floor. *Butt up. But he sometimes will pounce at the cage with his big self and scare her. And sometimes will stiffing up. Hes so excited his body shakes. Lol. When zoey is here zeke does not leave her alone. It's been three days and I still do t know if I can trust him to b gentle and k ow his strength with zoey. Any advice will b great. Please!!! I never had this problem with my chow. She don't *care about the new puppy.

Hi Kevin

I just put a female puppy in with my male. I had to get another dog cos i unfortunately had to put my female Lab down...
My male is a big boy, 22 months old, but we spent a lot of time socialising him with other dogs when he was a puppy.

Basicly he is fine with the puppy and only took a few hours to get used to her. She is actually the rough one of the 2. She is 4 months old now and we have had no problems with the dogs.

All I can say is leave them to get to know each other while you keep an eye on them, see what they do. They might play a bit rough but remember that they are tough.

If after a few hours they are still fine then I would think that you can leave them together. But you know you dogs better than anybody else so its your call....

Good luck and enjoy!

Hi Kevin I just went through this with Miss Vendetta and my new pup BaWaaJige( golden retriever). Vendetta is very good with pups actually with most dogs only have had two that she doesnt like that isnt to say I dont watch her like a hawk for signs that she will attack but for the most part she just likes to play. I would take both dogs out into the yard both on leashes so you have some control and let them walk around and smell each other. Have a few toys to distract them and see how it goes. It would have been best to do the intro first on neutral grounds but since they have smelled eachother a few times already you should be fine.
