We have a 3.5 year old rescue Pit bull (Gabriel). He is a total sweetheart, but he is super hyper and loves to jump. He also is very spoiled. We too were worried at how he would be with an infant. My baby is now 5 weeks old. Gabriel is great with him. Just take your time to slowly introduce the dog to the baby. Don't ever leave the dog alone with the baby...you wouldn't want her to accidentally jump up to see the baby and hurt it. Everyday we take a special walk just Gabe, the baby and I. Gabe sees the stroller come out now and gets all excited :-) Good luck with your pregnancy and baby :-)

A friend dog had puppies and the mother dog was not taking care of them. So he asked me if i would take care of them. they were eating for a while. I had gone to a pet store and got some milk for them , but they seem to not be doing good . The dog hade 13 and only 6 made it, but they are dieing on me. I seem to care for them they are breathing . but is there anything else i can do to make them come to have more engry

We had a dog that jumped a lot so our trainer told us to knee her in the chest everytime she jumped up on us. When we did he would sit and we would praise him "good sonny no jump". We didn't knee him hard and after a lot of consistency he learned not to jump. Even our company had to participate to train him. We also wouldn't let our dog near the baby. We slowly introduced him while on a leash and kept saying "you be nice to the baby". .

Hi iam April i have owned many pitbulls and the good thing about dogs is that they are very proective. If you introduce your dog to some of your babys clothes after she has worn them in the hopsital she will get ur babys scent. Your dog will not harm you baby she will harm other people that will try to harm you and your family. you have nothing to worry about

I'm in the exact same boat as you, I'm due in Feb and we have a 10 month beautiful APBT. I've been read up on introducing a new born to your dogs, I printed if off the internet. It does suggest some really good points i.e introduce a tape with a baby crying, before you get home from the hospital get someone to come in with a blanket or something with the baby's smell on it, when you come home with the baby hand the baby to someone else so you can give some attention to the dog,,, etc just keep searching on the net,, sorry I dont have any on hand help,,, maybe you could give me some pointers once you have your baby :) good luck

I have had 2 babies since we got our pit, we have older children so he was already used to kids. What we did was slowly introduce them to one another, our pit was very hyper too but he had already learned not to jump on me cause I was pregnant and he has never jumped on the older kids so that really wasn't a prob for us. After he got used to the new baby being around he would snif her and be REALLY careful around her, it was like he knew he was so much bigger and powerful then her and if he did one thing wrong, he could hurt her bad. The first babe that I had after we got him is now 4 1/2 yrs and the newest baby is only 5 months and so far we have had no problems. All these suggestions are really good, I watched a program about this same subject and they tell you to get a doll that cries too, they also tell you to gently pull on the dogs ears too, because that is one thing that kids do most, since I have seen that program I will not get a dog unless I can gently pull on their ears without them snapping or growling.

i had a pitbull dalmation mix fromm when she was weeks old (we found her and raised her) two and a half year s later im pregnant things are ok for awhile then one day when telling the dog as usual to get off the couch she growled and bit me on the hand. i left the house until my hhusband came home and took the dog to his brother's house which i will not go near now. pit bulls have super strong jaw power and a bad rep u never know whhhat type of parents the pup came from and a child always comes first so anyone who feels they have to get rid of an animal dont feel guilty

Hi, what we did before we brought our baby home from the hospital is take one of the blankets that the baby was wrapped in and the baby cap and a onsie that our baby was wearing and my hubby brought those home and let the animals sniff it all they wanted. He left in on the floor for the animals and they all sniffed and smelled this new scent. Then the next day, when we brought the baby home, the animals were already familiar with the scent of the baby. They were still curious, but they already knew something was coming! the animals did just fine!

Hi Christy your American Stafordshire Bull Terrier is our Staffordshire bull Terrier here in the UK. I own 2. My wife is pregnent expecting our 1st child on 25th April. My male is 8 years old my bitch is 13months old. In the history of these dogs dating back to 1700 when Lord Hamilton invented our breed thay have been know to be so gentil with children. Your dog will sence your pregnent,and will become protective towards you with strangers.And i have no doubt in my mind you have the best breed of dog to be around you baby when its born.I have every conferdence in both my dogs.We bred these dogs orignaly for "gameness" courage,agilty,and strenth.And not to bite humans.Any dog in those days who was to bite a human was never bred from and killed,even if it was a game dog. Maybe try visiting a few of our websites here. This is my dogs blood line on this web site. www.bullhawk.co.uk (Spike) CH Bombstaff Blackthorn at Bullhawk. he is my males grandfather. If you go on the links you can find out for yourself your dogs true history of its breeding.Where,when,How they come about.And they will confirm there gentilness with children.The only thing my wife complains about is that my male likes to sit on her lap and is very heavy.But he is very careful not to touch her belly where the baby is...I think you worry for nothing. I hope your pregnency goes well.
Good luck

I'm in the same situation, with very loving but boisterous rott/pit cross and a presa canario and am expecting a baby in june. I know the dogs are great with kids because I already have lots, but my main concern is them knocking the crib or jumping on her. They are pretty well behaved and good with people but are both very young and get excited easy, especially when they are having a 'mad moment' The main advice that I've been given is not to change anything. This means, do 'not' try and make your dog feel more important than the baby, because you feel she may be jealous. It soulds heartless, but keep your dog's routine as much the same as you can. Your dog needs to learn from the beginning that he is bottom rank in the household, below baby, fullstop. Lots of praise when he is patient and gentle around the baby and not attention seeking should help too.

how do pit bulls have babby 

Name: Chris | Date: Feb 5th, 2006 5:42 PM
how much does it cost to breed a pitbull? I mean how much does someone usually charge? I just need 2 know a accurate charge for breeding mine. 

Name: Amanda | Date: Feb 8th, 2006 7:55 PM
To Chris- With as much loving and wonderful pitbulls without homes..I would be against breeding them, theres plenty of them without homes that desperately need them as they are the first to be uthanized. As an update. My son is 6 months old, I finally introduced my pit to the baby when he was around 2 months old slowly. Happy to report he is back in the house baby and dog are now best friends and the baby just thinks hes the funniest goofiest thing around. Went over well! Dog is so careful when laying down places now he sniffs on the couch to make sure the baby isnt on there before hopping up to sleep and checks the bed before laying down. Turned out well!

I dont think so I just watch the dog. Sometimes dogs get jealous when a baby is born just make him feel that he is still important.

I had an AMST. His name was Stryker. Awesome dog!! I miss him so much. He was 12 when we put him down...He was always great with "us", but his last few years, he was getting more and more aggressive towards anyone else. He absolutely wonderful with the kids! One problem-no one else could go near them! He was soooo protective. It was cute at first, but then it got ridiculous and out of hand.
