Me and my daughter has 6 put bills altogether . She has an American pit bull her name is Bella she a beautiful big pit.. I have a pit bull terrier her name is shinnagens.. I spell it different then the right spelling of it... I also have a American pit mixed with a chow his name is Max he's the greatest dog ever and so pretty.. I love all my pits and my daughters people give them such bad names and it's all in how you raise them.

My son (14) and I just got our first pitbull pup 3 weeks ago and we love him so much! What a character he is and so fun to play with! But the humping has gotten under control as hehas established his place in the hierarchy of our home. The only problem is he won't let us know when he needs to go out( half hour trips don't cut it ) but I guess his bladder at this point just can't handle tons of water.was maybe thinking to train him to use a bell!! Has anyone done this. With a putbull and have you gotten results??? Oh, and my son named him Edgar Allen Poe, one of his favorite writers. And Edgar was the perfect name for our pup- he knows it already at 19 weeks!

My husband and I were the proud mommy and daddy of SadieBelle, our 5 yr old, solid white, American Pitbull blanket baby, whom we had gotten when she was 4 mths old as a rescue. Sadie delivered her first litter of pups on January 28, and a week and two days later she developed mastitis. Seeing my daughter in so much pain, broke my heart to pieces. The infection spread thru her lil body so quickly, that all the treatments and medicine wasn't effective; and on February 7, our beautiful baby took her last breath as i held her in my arms. Pitbulls have a reputation for being viscious animals, but the truth is that they are, what u put into them, and SadieBelle was amazing. Sadie left us 8 pieces of her wonderful lil heart. 6 lil girls and 2 lil boys. Bottle feeding and puppy care is getting me attached to the lil darlings, but i kno that once they're a lil older, most will have to be adopted out, which is why i'm hesitant on giving them names, because i feel they're new parents should choose a name that is right for them. However, the smaller, spotted, innocent faced, baby girl that I'm keeping is a tough one to decide on. I want a name that is a namesake for Sadie, but also shows her own lil unique personality. Hopefully, during the coming days the perfect name for my sweet baby will come to me.

My little pit Lee turns 10 weeks old today. His complete name is Ho "Lee" Schitt. He is a handful requiring a firm hand to discipline. He has been trying to "hump" me and any of my 4 cats. At his age it is NOT a sexual thing but a dominance thing. He really is being tough on breaking down his dominance issues.
