Question: Hello,
I live in Fremont, CA and have a three-year old APBT whom we adopted in Dec 2009. She's just recovered from her spay surgery and I'm looking for a male friend for her. Do you ever sell older males? If you do, please contact me - my e-mail is smillick@hotmail.com. Thank you.

Sherri

Answer: Hi Sherri,

We seldom, have adult dogs to adopt out, because they are our babies. Have you thought of rescue groups. They make sure the dog will meet your needs and usually, they have a lot to choose from.

Question: I have a red nosed pit puppy, he's 5 months 2wks and weighs close to about 27lbs. he's gained roughly 4lbs a month. Is that normal? Is he too heavy for his height? He's not fat, just lean. And about how tall should i expect for him to get( on all fours )?

Answer: Well everyone has an opinion on weight and height so I am going to give you the height I go by and that is no taller than 21 inches at the withers or shoulders. A good weight is no more than 65 lbs, though my Samson, tends to average about 70 pounds because he lives in the house with me, and I spoil him. This is just my opinion and others may not agree with me.

Answer: Well, I think you should always do what your veterinarian, recommends, they know best. My dogs love water and I keep a baby pool in their yard in the summer months so they can cool off. Thank you, Lance for letting me know, I appreciate it.


Question from Bryce BrownFebruary18,2010,7:18am

Question: Hey I'd first off like to say you have a wonderful Kennel and your dogs are amazing. I'm looking into buying a Pup sometime soon. I also have a Red Nose male at home now almost 6 months. Would it be better for me to get a Male or Female? I tend to lean toward females

Answer: Hello Bryce,

I have known of people who raise females together and I have known of those who raise two males together, but not me. Samson and Ehud, got along till Samson, got jealous one day of Ehud, sitting in my lap. Sadie, gets along with Della, as long as there isn't any food involved. If you have a male, I would recommend a female, opposites seem to do better together, the males seem to tolerate a dominate female better than a dominate male. It just makes life easier and you can enjoy your dogs more. Bryce, thank you, for your kind words, we love our dogs.

Question: how many times a week do i have to take my pup a bath?he's a 2months old pit...thank you for answering all of our questions..it helps us a lot about caring our pups..god bless

Answer: Hi Lance,

Well Lance, I don't bathe my dogs that much, unless they roll in cow mess. You see the oils in the dogs coat work best if the dog isn't shampooed that much. I do give my dogs that stay in the house a bath at least once a year. Pits have short coats so they are pretty good at staying clean. We showed Samson at a UKC show and didn't groom him at all do to time restrictions, Samson's coat looked shinny, but if you pet his coat your hand would be brown from the dirt. Samson, beat out a dog that was going for his Grand Championship. Johnny, thinks that story is funny, and wanted me to share it with you.
I hope this helped and Lance, God bless you too.

Question: hi.. my pit bull puppy is so very active.. do you think that it is ok to give some toys to bite it? what is the mostly characteristics of a one pit bull puppies.. thnx.. have a nice day..

Answer: Hi Jean, yes, Pits have so much energy and so they need a lot of exercise. You can give toys but be careful, if they start to get protective of their toys, you will have to take them away. Pit Bull, puppies, want to please their masters, so much so, they are usually very easy to train.

Question: good afternoon.. i have a question about my 2 months old pit bull... what is the best food that i can give to my puppy? and how many times that i going to feed? thnx u so much and more power!

Answer: Hello Michael,

We use a great dry dog food, called Black Gold. It is hard to find but if you get on-line and look at their web site, you can find a dealer near you. We have also used Diamond dog food. Look for dog food, that has meat or chicken as their first ingredient and it should serve you well. We feed puppies twice a day or allow them to have food in a pan all day, usually active puppies, will burn their food off quickly.
