Your pup is adorable. I love Pits too but will likely never own one. I did foster a few and have trained many. I have had Rottweiler's for over 34 years now. Another much maligned breed, they are my favorite and have been nothing but wonderful every step of the way. Most of mine were rescued from horrid homes and they were all great dogs. I think that speaks volumes for the true nature of that breed. It is what you put into them. Breeding certainly does play a part but how you handle a dog plays a larger part in my opinion. My best bred show quality dog and my rescues all have wonderful temperaments so... It is more then just breeding alone.

I am a pro-crop and dock person as well. I hate when people get all crazed about docking or cropping. Generally the people know nothing about it but have a bug in the behind about it. There too, it is about who does it, and how the after care is done. Good luck with your darling pup. I hope you have many many happy years together.

Now that is a breed I am truly nervous about. I have been snapped at so many times by Yorkies and my dog was literally attacked at a dog show by a Yorkie that happened to walk by. My dog was sleeping when it happened so it wasn't threatened or anything. It was crazy. That said, I am certain there are friendly well socialized ones out there as well. I do think they are cute but I am a big dog person too. :)

When people come to my house my Rottweiler's let themselves be seen until I tell them it is alright then they go lay down quietly. One of the things I love most about this breed is that they are NOT yappy. I have a neighbor who has a Chocolate Lab that barks all the time. I don't know how they can stand it, it drives me nuts and I am not standing right next to it like they are.

One of the things I also love about fish... they are quiet. That is what is great about this world though, there is something for everyone.

My Yorkie story: A neighbor has one and it is obnoxious. It never stops barking. One day I had my dogs in the back of the truck (my truck has a camper shell, back gate was closed) and this Yorkie sat there barking his head off at my dogs. Doc decided he had had enough and he jumped through the slider (a big no-no) and then jumped out of the driver's window. The window was only halfway down and it's a long drop from a Tundra's window to the ground. Doc ran up to the dog, put his jaws around the dog and pinned him to the ground. The owner was screaming at the top of her lungs and the Yorkie remained motionless and was silent. I thought Doc had killed him! Yikes. I told Doc to "drop it", he did and then I told Doc to "load up" as I opened the tail gate to my truck, and he jumped right in. During this time the woman had grabbed her dog and ran away. I found out from another neighbor that her dog was fine, just freaked out over what had happened.

This "attack" had me very concerned and I called my trainer right away. I described the event to her and she said, "I think Doc showed great restraint and you don't need to be worried". I said, "Are you kidding me? Restraint?? I'd say I've got an agression problem building". She laughed and said, "Don't worry. That Yorkie was calling Doc out and had Doc wanted to he could have snapped that Yorkie in half". I decided not to worry and never saw that Yorkie again when I was out and about. Doc remained as sweet as could be and was always one of the friendliest dogs at the dog parks we'd visit. My trainer was right afterall. Needless to say, I'm a big dog person too!

Kymmie My Rottie showed great restraint the day the old ladies Yorkie attacked her at the dog show too. Do you know the lady had the audacity to say "Don't let him bite her" to me about my dog while her dog was literally hanging off my dogs face by it's teeth. I was shocked and horrified. Now, had my dog defended herself from the attack it would have been "oh, it was a vicious Rottweiler again" Instead, my dog never put her mouth on the little beast. As is always the case, I don't blame the Yorkie, I blame the owner. Same thing in your case Kymmie. The owner should have never allowed their dog to keep carrying on like that. Not everyone wants to listen to that and the owner needs to be cognizant of that.
