Hi and welcome! I'd love to see a pic of your dog.:) How old is he?

Personally, I think pit bulls should never be mixed with other breeds. There are many breeds, particularly the guardian breeds,(and Chows)who have no hesitation about taking down a human being. Please note I'm talking breed traits in general. Temperament will of course vary from dog to dog in any breed. Pit bulls were bred to be submissive to people, but intolerant or aggressive to other dogs.

When mixing breeds this way, there is no guarantee about what you will get. The result *could* be a gamedog who cannot be called off, with no inhibitions about attacking a person.

I'm glad your dog is sweet and I hope he stays that way!

They are both very very sweet looking!
