Working with an Aggressive Pit Bull?


My 3yr old male Pit just got fixed 3 months ago. He has tried to show aggression 3 times this month to my 16yr old daughter and 2 times my 16 month old grandson. I am devastated; he can't be trusted! I don't know what to do! I love him and he has other wonderful traits? Should I put him down? I don't think I can.

You need to ask yourself "What is more important to you, your dog or your children?" I think you already know the answer.

I have a pitbull that just got in a fight with another pitbull and now he is showing sings of aggression. What I am doing is giving him lots of love and attention, taking him for longs walks, socializing him with other dogs like at the dog park.


Can you get a companion? Good luck. Please try other alternatives before you put him down.

You need to get this dog away from the children now! This doesn't mean you have to put him down immediately. First, is there any way possible to find another home for him that has adults only? If you can't then you need to consider the consequences of keeping this animal. No one likes to put down a beloved pet but is the life of the 16 month old grandchild less important? This is a sad situation for you but you must be honest with yourself. So sorry.

Google 'breed rescue pit bull American Staffordshire terrier' to find a breed rescue group. they are dedicated, they are knowledgeable, and they are compassionate.


They will help you. They'll arrange for a foster home for the dog until they can rehome him; you may have to help transport him, or they may be able pick him up directly from you.

If for some reason you can't find a breed rescue group in your area, your vet may have info on groups outside your state who will help.

I just read in morning paper part pit bull bit 3 month baby in head while grandma & mama was in kitchen fixing baby bottle heard baby make crying noise went in where baby was & dog bit in his head. Baby died on way hospital.

People need watch babies & infants around dogs doesn't matter what kind dog. Please try place dog with someone else. They probably put it to sleep. Two babies last 2 weeks been in paper. I'm dog lover so heartbreaking.
