I agree, he looks like a pittie/pittie mix. Very handsome pup ... I love the ears.

Definitely looks like a pittie mix. As Chico said, please don't be scared. They truly are the best dogs in the world. :cloud9:

I hope so.
I don't know too much about this breed and I have a 1 year old chihuhua too.
Thank you for all your advices.

Well, if you do your research on the internet, you'll find alot of negative stuff about pit bulls, most of which is not true, or exaggerated. On the other hand, if you read about them here, you'll find out from people who own pitties that they are sweet and loving companions.
I hope he can stay with you, what an angelic fellow.

Yanche,I forgot to add,since you have a little Chihuahua,I would not leave them together alone, if you leave the house..
Not because the pup is a PBX,but because he's a puppy,bigger and probably more boisterous than the Chi and could easily hurt the smaller dog in play.
Love to see a Chi-pic too:thumbs up

Probably for a period of time I just have to play referee.

Yes,you have to be really careful,it does not take much for that little Chi to get hurt,but maybe he is the BIG alpha-dog.:laughing:
Have you got a name for the pup yet?

(coughs) BS:rolleyes: - Teach him to 'be nice'. Pit or not-even if he was a friggin LAB-he needs to be taught! Being American Bulldog (google it-he looks JUST like one!) he has pit cousins (and possibly pit mix in his blood)and will act like a Pit if not taught. ABs (and Pits) can be wonderful pets for wonderful owners. Good luck and don't worry about Tarzan- they will become BEST FRIENDS! There are Pit bashers EVERYWHERE- but all it boils down to is
1) get PLENTY of exersice
2) be a good parent- teach what he needs to be taught

Boxermom,you might think it's BS:frustrated: now,I don't even have a dog,but this poster does not know much about this found pup and I would NEVER leave them alone together in the house,until I know and have trained the pup.
They might one day love each other,but for now,better safe than sorry.
A little aggressive playing and the Chi is dead.
And FYI I am definetly not a Pit basher,I would say the same if it was a Poodle.

jiorji

i agree with Chico on the "not leaving them together" at first.

Yes there's pittbull bashers, and there's stories of pitt bulls attacking (just like any other dog) but it all goes down to the owner. Not everyone is ok for a pitt bull. Not everyone is ok as a dog owner for a German shepherd. Not everyone is ok for a Golden, etc. If you don't know how to handle a dog, then bad things could happen. THere's nothing wrong about giving advice before stuff happens, is there?
Not too long ago we had an incident on the board about a new dog being attacked by a resident dog. We hope that never happens again to anyone.


Yanche I mean no offense to you, but you weren't PLANNING on getting a pittbull(or whatever this dog may be). If you're not sure of how to raise him properly so that there's no future aggression or lack of exercise or whatever else, please just find a rescue that will help you find a home for him.
Or do as much research as you can and go to training and learn and learn and learn. Take as much advice as you can. But until you're 100% sure that your CHi and the new dog get along, I say you separate them while they're unatended. THe new pup will mean when when they'll play fight, but chis are small and fragile and a big pup might accidentally hurt it.

anyway, keep us updated:thumbs up

Jiorji,thank's that's exactly what I mean,to me it's just common sense,no matter what breed he is,he's still much bigger than the little Chi.

February 4th, 2007, 05:24 PM
I agree with Chico and Jiorji. BTW, Tarzan (love the name) sure is a cutie. :lovestruck:

Being American Bulldog (google it-he looks JUST like one!) he has pit cousins (and possibly pit mix in his blood)and will act like a Pit if not taught.

What does that mean? He'll act like an affectionate, energetic, smart, loyal dog.......?


I agree with others who have suggested keeping the dogs seperated when you're not supervising. It can take weeks or months for a dog to really settle into a new home, so go slow. He a total cutie, my guess would be a pit bull or pit bull mix.

I think your being harsh!:mad: Chico is a BIG animal lover (all animals) and I have never known her to "pit-bash"!!! Regardless, even if the dog was a poodle I wouldn't leave a dog I didn't know alone with my Chi! (that's what you call being responsible)!!

well if you cant find this sweethearts owners then best of luck, just make sure to research if you decide to keep it... your chi is a cutie too:lovestruck:

i forgot to say that Tarzan is the cutest Chi i've ever seen!! And i'm sure he lives up to his name of Tarzan :D ;)

Have you got a name for the pup yet?

So far I had flyers with his picture around the area and I send an email to our neighborhood network but no positive answer.
Therefore, we most likely are going to keep him.
As soon is possible I would like to take him to the vet for consultation and vaccines. And I would have them both in some training classes by the end of the month.
I will keep them separate. They are not aware of their sizes. I am letting them play and run only in my presence.
We are going to call him Rocky.

hes sooooooooo cute :lovestruck: i love when people get new puppies............ it make me sooo excited

Thank's girls,for adding your input,I did not think I was wrong in this:)
Yanche,Rocky is a great name,my oldest cat is a Rocky,we named him Rocky Balboa,because his paws seemed to big for his body,when he was a kitten:cat:
It seems to me,you know how to do this,good luck with Rocky and Tarzan:thumbs up

Golden Girls
February 5th, 2007, 07:45 AM
Not wrong Chico - perfect advice. Rocky's absolutely breathless, a real BEAUTY and Tarzan's just about the cutest Chi I've ever seen :cloud9:

A vet trip for consultation and vaccines is a good plan, good luck :thumbs up

Oh No, No don't even...Pits are special in a way that they need owners that care enough to teach them the right way to behave. They can easily be 'neglected' in this way...that is what I meant. I feel like ALL bull breeds are this way. From Bostons to Mastiffs. Bull breeds are my LIFE. I will butt heads w/ ANYONE that even tries to belittle them in the LEAST bit. They are wonderful animals that require nothing less than wonderful owners...THAT my dear(s) is what I meant.

I never said 'leave them alone' ...The whole purpose of either of my posts are 'teach what you want' Take them as you will...

I absolutely agree with you, more than you can imagine, I was just confused about the ".....will act like a Pit if not taught." You can see how that might read a bit weird maybe?

I was referring to their 'nature'. I'm sorry if it offended you.

Let's just say that whatever the breed is, when a new dog comes into the home, it's best to keep them separate when you can't be there to supervise. :)

Congrats on the new edition! Did you get him checked for a microchip? :o

I see the resemblance, and I think you are right about it. Thank you for your advices. I had him vaccinated today and I am planning to take him and Tarzan to be neutered on Saturday. At the end of the month I will have them both in some kind of training classes.
Is this the right way or should I proceed otherwise?

Yes we did that today, but nothing showed up.
So, I guess he is my resposability from now on.

Beautiful pup, and the Chi is the cutest... nice name too!!! LOL I have my Pomeranian mix, also Tarzan...:laughing:

All dogs need to be trained, and supervised while being intorduced, otherwise it could potentially lead to a disaster, but Yanche, you are on the right way and seem to know what needs to be done, so all I have to say is : CONGRATS on the pups, and enjoy them!!!! ;) ;)
