With the huge overload of unwanted dogs, especially pits and pit mixes. Why are you looking to breed? Have your dog neutered asap before he is unable to stop this unwanted behavior and develops other negative traits as well.
Unfortunately even after this dog is neutered he will continue the offensive behaviour, and he will be extremely (dangerously in that breed) territorial. He will be very aggressive towards any other male dog-even if that other male dog is his own puppy or any other, or is neutered.
You've created a real problem for yourself-should have had him neutered at six months to prevent him maturing sexually. Sorry, but there it is. I raised AKC Boxers, my cousin American Staffordshire Terriers, and can from personal and professional experience tell you that your dog is now one who should never:
*Be unsupervised in public, or around children and teens, or around other animals.
*Be off leash and without a high quality muzzle securely fastened in public.
*Be in even a fenced and secure enclosure unsupervised.
Additionally, you must invest in:
*Stout leashes and muzzles
*Securely fenced outdoor exercise area
*Personal insurance against claims on what most localities consider a dangerous dog
*Training classes for you and the dog to prove you are aware that you own a dangerous dog and are trying to prevent a tragedy
*Proper veterinary care including rabies and other inoculations as required by the laws of your town, and having the dog micro-chipped so that if he ever escapes supervision and attacks someone, You can be tracked down and prosecuted for letting a dangerous dog wander loose.
Finally, you are legally obligated to:
*Contact your local authorities to ascertain if there are laws against that breed of dog in your town
*Have your dog licensed in accordance with the laws of your town
The American Staffordshire Terrier, Boxer, German Shepherd, Rottweiler, and a couple of other breeds are now considered dangerous breed dogs, and are being legislated against in localities all over the world.
As an owner of one, you are obligated to keep the public (including friends and family) safe from your dog. Owning one of these dogs is a tremendous responsibility and liability-your dog, for example, could cost you everything you own if he should get loose and injure someone or cause property damage.
Get some good legal and vet advice, you may find it is better for you and the dog to turn him over to a rescue group who can re-home it with someone who completely understands and accepts the huge responsibility of owning him.
Please don't misunderstand, I like these dogs. But irresponsible owners have made things very difficult for everyone-the public, the authorities, and the responsible owner. These dogs, once wonderful family companions, have been over-bred, wrongly bred as fighting dogs, used as status symbols for thugs, permitted to be trained to be vicious, and now have terrible reputations-all because of irresponsible owners.
Don't be an irresponsible owner; either learn how to take proper care of this wonderful animal in your life, or let him go to a good home where he will be taken care of properly.
My advice is to get him fixed, and to not breed dogs. Their are SO many animals out there that need homes and have no care. Why purposely create more dogs when we could be adopting etc. and giving homes to ones that need it.
