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.

To Bryan-
Yeah, that's a "wonderful" idea...scream at the dog rather than taking the time to TRAIN it! When you scream at them, it makes them nervous and scared. Get a clue how to handle a pitt and then give advice!

these are wonderful loyal family pets. you shouldnt have any problems, just to be safe, dont leave your baby alone with the dog, and ive him one of your babys blankets to sleep with , so he can get used to your babys scent, before introducing him to your new baby, congratulations on you baby also! hope everything goes well!

i recently adopted a pit bull, jack russel mix, and she is hyper as all hell. she never just lays down and lets you love on her, anytime you move, look at her or pet her she goes into super hyper mode and starts jumping all over you and trying to naw off your arm. she isnt mean just really hyper. any ideas?

can i touch my pit pups when she have them or i have to wait 

Name: lakendrick mays | Date: May 9th, 2006 11:46 PM
Yes, because ur having a baby and he may push u down and hurt u and the baby 

Name: jerrick | Date: May 10th, 2006 1:27 AM
yes u can touch ur pit bulls babys. u should clean them off, and help suck out the mucus and amniotic fluid in thier nasal passages, to help them into life, just give them back after wards / lol. dogs arent like mice, they wont reject thier pups, if thier scent isnt on them, like rodents will. =) i have assisted alot of dog births. would u like any more info?

Hi Christy Iam a lecturer in behavioural science at the University of Paisley .I have also been involved with dogs for the last 40 years .I would implore you to think long and hard at what you are contemplating .You say your dog is docile if somewhat exciteable ask youself has the dog been in a situation where she will be taking second billing to an infant an infant that is completly defenceless she has never shown any aggresive tendencies yet but has she been in asituation like this before .Ask any member of the dog fraternity not amstaf devotees what they would consider the most inaproprite breed to be left with an infant it wouldint be alab or a spaniel or poodle. Think of the ethical issues what would happen if inadvertantly the dog nipped the infant even in play if its a we boy a scar would not be as devistating as it would if it was awe girl .How you feel ? what would you tell her when she is older.The reason Ifeel so strongly is when my beautiful daughter was born 24 years ago Iwas in the same situation with our bullmastiff bitch she was loyal and faithful and part of t6he family unfortunately she did not take to the new arival and we had the heartbraking decision to rehome her.So Kirsty whatever you decide please ensure you look at all angles and explore all dangers ,good luck in your new arival and whatever decision you and your partner arive FinC

not at all. if your pit was raised to be non agressive and is good with other dogs and cats, you should be fine. My husband and I have had several pits around while my son was still real little, and because of how we trained them, he was fine. Some things that you might want to do to prepare her for the baby are have her meet little children, make sure you have a good hold of her, just in case. You should also prepare her for when your child becomes a toddler. Toddlers will try to play with them when they are eating, so try petting her while she is eating, then gradually move to putting your hand by her face, and if she growls- punish her. Other than that, just watch to see hoe she reacts to the new baby. if she is jealous- pay attention to her and introduce the baby to her with some caution.

to the operson above me, just give her a box, with the top cut off, but with the bttom still there, like this

----------- ------
______ ___ in that shape ya know so she can get in easily, but not to tall on the sides, so you can assist her during birth, and put some old blanketsin there, and put it in a quiet corner, like in a spare room, and show her it, and keep the door open, then when she starts panting alot it might be time, and get her in the box ,[ dont let the male in there with her, he might just cause distractions] and invest in one of those mucus suctions, to clear there airway when they are born. when they are born, take the sac off of them, and give them to the mom, so she can bite the cord. make sure it isnt to close to the baby becase if she does, the baby will bleed to death. if you want, you can cut it yourself about 4 inches from the baby, make sure to tie it first, then cut it, and suction the back of there mouth, [dont out it down there throat] and then thier nose, [ the nostrils cuz u cant get the suction cup in there, ] and if they arent crying, place them both in your hands, and swing them in front of you, from you head to your waist, [make sure your supporting thier head, this help clean out the air passages, and do this a few times.....if they dont start breathing, call your vet ] if they are breathing and crying, or not RUB RUB RUB rub the puppies and a towel, to dry them . and warm them,for about 2 or 3 minutes. this also helps stimutlate breathing. then give them to their mommy!!!! and she will put them in the postition to nurse, after she feels they are clean enough for her. if she doesnt, then do it yourself. put them to nurse. offer mommy water , and you might wanna have another person help you, while you help them mommy, and hey help with the puppys.

when you feed mommy now, give her boiled egg in her food, because this is protien, and its really really good for the pups. have u taken your dog to the vet? because they usualy check for water babies, which are over sized pupps, filled with water[usually arent alive] and they will get stuck in the birth canal, and could kill your dog, so the vet would be good.

remember, the longer ur pupps nurse., the healthyer they will be, so i would wait until the mother weans them. dont forget to get them thier shots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hope all goes well !

sorry, not in that shape, i was trying to make it look like a box lol ok its a half box

_________ __________
--------------- -----------------
---------------- ------------------
see the hole in the midde, so she can get in, and how its only half a box???????? 

Name: jess | Date: May 25th, 2006 5:39 PM

I Am not an authority on the subject, however I feel that Supervision is key to your baby's welfare not only as an infant but as a Toddler ,or young child as well. I would never leave a child alone with a animal be the animal large or small .

So go to dog training, don't get rid of you BABY (dog). Try to work on the problem not get rid of the problem. 

Name: Black Diamond Kennels | Date: May 30th, 2006 7:29 PM
First of all I have to agree with the last post as a pit bull breeder and lover of the breed the answer is not to get rid of the dog. There are many ways to prepare your home for the welcomeing of a new addition. Start with maybe carrying a baby doll around a corrective behavior training when the dog jumps things like this but do remember the breed IS a hyper breed. There is no arguing this point at all. There is ALWAYS going to be a chance regardless of the breed that the new addition is going to pose a challange just prepare yourself for it. On the note of helping the momma deliver her pups WOW that was alot of things that I as a breeder and also workingin the vet we have never encountered in a normal birth granted in a rare occasion you may need to co to those extreams but most cases the mother will do most if not all of it. Now there is no doubt I am there for the births and will do some additional drying and warming or reposition of the pups for her but the cords and such she does the cleaning but to each there own. but any question we are will to answer or any interest in blue pits or presa canarios [email protected]

no you don't really have to be worried, just take to an obedience class. and put baby stuff on the floor so she gets the feel of babies. dogs are usually great around babies. just give your dog and baby the same attention so it doesnt get jealous.
