i have a 100% razors edge blue male. 6 months old.

i have been researching and looking for a female playmate for him with compatible bloodlines.

found a blue female with the above bloodlines...redwood/gaff/knowlwood. haven't seen great things about gaff..not too familiar with the wood bloodlines.

if i were to get the female..would they get along with the 2 different types of bloodlines?

any sort of response would help..thanks!

Sounds like you are looking to make a breeding pair.

The bloodline for these particular dogs has little to do with wether they will get along or not. It will depend on the dog itself. Either they will like eachother or they won't.

oh no...maybe i came off wrong..not similar..just..want to make sure the bloodlines get along. i have heard some people say some bloodlines don't get along together..personally that doesn't make sense to me..i think it is how you raise them..but i could be wrong..i am kind of new to all of this..just trying to research and find a good female pit that will be happy and have fun with my little boy.

thx

is this ur first pitbull? if it is, i personally think waiting to get another one would be the best. Its NOT how u raise them entirely. Pitbulls are hot dogs, and DA is in the breed period... id wait to see how ur pup turns out towards dogs. DA wont really show up until 9months-2yrs, so.... id wait but jsut my opnion

well its like this. every dog is different... the only reason someone would look into keeping the bloodlines close is for breeding purposes. I dont really care that someone says that bloodlines affect their personalities, if all your looking for is a companion.. You should know two things. Even considering breeding your dogs wouldnt be wise unless you have thorough knowledge of what youre doing, and the fact that you have a bully breed pup. He is for your pleasure, not for having a buddy to run in the yard with. Our breed is known for DA and you should only get a female for YOU. They are human's companion... Not for your dog or for breeding purposes.

im not too worried about him not getting along with another dog. we had my parents dog (golden retriever) at our house for the 6 months he was there and they loved eachother. we also have a cat..and zion and the cat are best of friends..just this morning they were sleeping right next to eachother. he is VERY social...we go to the dog parks with him and make sure he is around other dogs whenever we get the chance.

i know people say the bully breed is "unpredictable" but honestly...its the owners that either beat the dogs or fight the dogs that make these dogs "unpredictable".

i am not looking into breeding. just a companion for zion. my parents dog is back with my parents...so we were just looking for a female companion. isn't that the right thing to do when looking for a companion? isn't it common for a boy and girl and not for 2 boys?

thx for all the info everyone..i am still new to this..everything helps :)

i actually have two girls. but i didnt aquire my rescue as a companion. she needed to be rescued and thats what happened. shes stuck with me now :)

like i mentioned above, the DA wont necessarily manifest until later ages. ur dog is being a puppy, of course it loves everything. My 9month old LOVES dogs, cats, kids but she wont submit to any thing but me.

ii think u should stick around and read some threads. itll help u decide wat to do with ur pup as far as a companion. and the dog park thing..... idk man, playing with fire. maybe not yet, but its not a good situation. would u let ur children hang out with coke heads? idk.....

well the only thing i disagree with is the part where you put its the owners that either beat the gods or fight the dogs that makes these dogs "unpredictable".

I think being a new bully breed owner, its easy to see your 6 month old puppy doing well with other animals and not thinking anything of it. But I promise you, when the 2-3 year mark hits, their attitude totally changes. My puppy is the same way, but I would never trust him to not show agression to another animal. I would never harm my dog as I feel he would never harm me, but I can't speak for what he will do when he is completely mature. Hundreds of generations of breeding for sport and fighting will not change because some breeder says they have great temperament. It might seem like you have a calm animal, but its always better to be safe then sorry.

I would keep having play dates with your relatives dogs under close supervision and would advise that you never take your dog to a dog park, and never assume that he won't be DA. Just precautions, my friend.

It can be done, i do it but if your not careful and you dont have plenty of time on your hands it can get real ugly. It takes leadership on your part because there has to be a pack order and your the one that has to determine that. For example in my house my 2 yr old male gets to sleep inside, my 1 yr old female at best sleeps in the garage, my male also eats first and i pour her food second (separate feeding daily). Both my dogs have strong drive high energy and not just dog agression, they go after anything alive insects birds squirrels. So its important to form a pack order to be able to keep them together. It can still go bad if i dont keep them happy, they have lots of energy to burn they need alot of exersize (walking jogging biking). Im not one for the fast life and if you dont have much extra time on your hands you shouldnt keep more than 1 dog.

Also my girl gets plenty of love too, i bring her inside and he has a few garage days out of the month, but i have too keep this structure so they dont have jealousy issues or dog agression towards each other.

yea...i totally understand..we are probably going to stop taking him to the parks since he is growing up and people think what they think and think he is a "vicious dog". We live up in seattle so once it starts lookin like spring or summer (if that ever happens) we are probably going to set some play dates with friends and family that have dogs. it is more safe that way.... :)

Pitbulls are not for dogparks whatsoever even most bullies shouldnt do it. Too high risk and your liable not to mention the newsline will read "PitBull attack" Its too confusing of a situation to put your PB in believe me.

yeah. no one is here to put you down or anything like that, but this place is where you should come to for questions like that. I think youre better off listening to people that have experience than to go there and take the chance of losing your companion. Like locz said, he might not start it, but a bully breed WILL finish it, and in all cases, the pit bull would be put down. All for what at first started as fun at the dog park. Your little guy thrives on your love alone and that from your family. It's a lot of maintanance but its worth it!

I applaud you for coming on here and asking questions! Although not all dogs are the same, I would hate for you to go and get another dog and have to deal with all of the chaos of the "crate and rotate". I am pretty sure your puppy will be just as happy to have play time with you.

I would have a look at some of the posts about dog agression and issues other people have with more than one pit :)
