Default ATTN: Dog owners. Need Advice, pls.

Hello All,
I have the opportunity to welcome a pitbull puppy to my family. I would like any feedback possible. I'm a dog amateur, I've owned a small breed or two for a short amount of time in the past (couldn't dedicate too much to them at the time so I gave them away). I have two children, a 2nd grader and a toddler. I live in a modest home with a backyard, but not a big one or really laid out for dog use, so he/she will be indoors.

I believe they may be banned officially in Miami Dade county, in which case I think they're actually American Bulldogs ::cough cough::. I've never been a huge animal lover (only reason I mention this is because I don't have a ton of experience), but I've been seriously considering getting a dog these past few months.

Any and all advice welcome please. Training tips, feeding tips, exercise tips, maybe you think I'm a selfish ******* and shouldnt get a pitbull puppy.

Well there's only one king under a roof & if that ain't you, get a different dog or else the bull will run you. Rule with an iron fist, rules for dog, protective over immediate fam, disciplined, well behaved & nice around strangers(wouldn't want it to bite anyone & be put dow). Just make sure you raise it to be a loving dog that behaves well

Avoid feeding it human food or it could lead to possible health problems for the dog/annoyance for you in the future. Also, since you have children, make sure they don't give them chocolate/candies, it could end up being his last treat.

You might need to buy "Pee/Poop Pads" since he/she is indoors, atleast until you properly train him/her to wait till it's time to go out.

Buy it toys to chew on, especially squeaky balls and rag dolls, that could potentially save you some money on future damages to furniture.

I'm not much of a pro but that's a few things I learned after having a puppy for a few months before giving her away. Hope it helped

In my opinion.

Keep pitbulls away from small kids and animals. Yes they're a product of their upbringing.

But on the same hand I've seen the most gentle/playful ones snap and become bloodthirsty just like Rots.

It's a gamble when you own aggro breeds. You can't change genetics.

And ofc someone will post all about their gentle pitbull. I've been around dogs my whole life.

True indeed. I've seen it happen with my brother in law's old pit... he ended up biting his sister out of nowhere once and from there on out the dog was obnoxiously aggressive. He wound up having to put it down...

They're great, loyal dogs if you're their boss.

That's pretty much known. But if they feel like they're in control there isn't much stopping them from either playing too rough or being very terrible. They have massive dense skulls and razor sharp teeth.

Easily could kill a little kid by accident.

Pitbulls are unfortunately banned in Miami Dade County.

http://www.miamidade.gov/animals/pitbull-law.asp

It will be a problem for you whatever breed you want to call it because Animal Control have been through it all before and are not fooled. A pitbull puppy needs to be socialized immediately...if not beware it's high pray drive dog and without proper socialization it will become aggressive with other dogs. If it's not used to being around other dogs from the start it will want to dominate every one that it sees.

It's not a dog for someone who is not prepared to learn everything about the breed and devote all the time needed to it...it would be unfair to the dog otherwise. It can be the best dog to have...but if you allow it to grow up in isolation and you have not learned how to handle a pitbull you may indeed have the police at your door for various problems. You will eventually have animal control at your door in Dade county regardless and it will be heartbreaking when they come. If you have kids you probably should face up to that fact for their sake and be responsible now before they become too attached...and trust me...a pitbull will attach itself to your family in an overwhelming way. They are notorious cuddle bunnies and very loving/loyal dogs. But if the law has banned them where you live as they have clearly done...they will seize the dog. Pitbull rescue groups are over burdened with trying to re-home these dogs to areas where they are not banned and chances are your dog will be put down. So do the right thing and find a home now for the puppy somewhere it is not banned or consider moving to Palm Beach County where there is no pitbull ordinance. If you are renting your landlord is liable to a $10,000 fine for renting to you and will kick you out the second he finds out and call Animal Control just to cover his ass.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but this is the reality and it has been well documented. I know a lot about these dogs...that's mine in my avi.

I own a shih tzu lol. You should be concerned of the cost of owning a dog as well. Vet visit for vaccination costs $300 for 3 visits. Insurance won't pay for it. $30 / month insurance.

To each his own. I'm not a fan of aggressive dog nor very active dog that I need to bring outside all the time for exercise. My shih tzu is an indoor dog. I have a big backyard so he can go play and poop there anytime. I installed dog door at my back door.

Thanks for the input man- beautiful dog btw.

I originally wanted an english bulldog, boxer or if a small breed I would get a pug

I think I may have to reconsider my position on these pit puppies. I would commit to learning as much as I can about them and raising him/her right, but damn, all it would take is a nosy neighbor to call animal control and he/she will be gone.
