You can never tell if a puppy will be aggressive or not. I have a 2 1/2 year old red-nosed pitbull that we got when she was 4 weeks old and we have never hit her...she has gotten very aggressive towards certain people...when me and my husband split up, he left the dog with me and when he comes over to see her, she is all excited to see him but if he gets to close to me she will attack him and I have to tell her that daddy isn't going to hurt mama..(he has never hit me)..then she gets all excited again...she is a very protective dog...she loves her 4 cats...good luck!

Congratulations on your new family member! I use to work at a shelter and have met some very sweet pitbulls. Here's a few tips:
The first few months of a dog's life (I believe 6 months) are critical for socialization. So, I suggest taking obedience training classes once your puppy is old enough. Also, pitbulls can be somewhat dominant dogs and your puppy will need to know that you're in charge. The classes can help with this. (08/30/2006)
what about the vet?? have they given you any advices. (08/31/2006)
my dd has a now 3 yr old white male pit that she hand raised from 2.5 weeks of age. he was also the sole surviver of the litter of 7. he was raised with an older, smaller female who was dominant. he is now with 2 chiwahwah(sp) and he has never been aggresive towards people or animals, including my 8 yo male boxer. just my 2cents.
