    So you're concerned that some idiot is going to come onto your property and steal your dog in broad daylight, just because it *might* look like a pitbull...kinda...just so they can beat it or kill someone else's private property and possibly face jail time for animal cruelty if they're caught? HIGHLY doubtful.

    What makes you concerned that he will hurt your moms dog other than the fact that he might have pit in him?

    Everybody, please understand I have nothing against pits! Like I said, I know there're great dogs, they intimate me, but I don't hate them. But I am scared of what people do to pits.

    He doesn't understand how much strength he has campared to her. And my mom swore she would kill him if he did something to her dog.

    Then you teach him! Just like any other dog. If he starts to get too rough, stop the play and separate them. Teach him the command "leave it" and use it whenever he starts getting too rough.

    Honestly, It think you should return this dog to wherever you got him from. It does not sound like you and you family are a good match for him. If you are intent on keeping him, stop telling us how worried you are that he'll do something and go train him properly so that he won't. Being that you are scared of him, I don't see you being successful at training him, so maybe look for a trainer in your area.

    I'm not scared of him, he loves me and would never intentionally hurt me! We have a strong bond! Sure pits intimate me, but I'll train him, I'm mostly concerned about his safety. I am training him, and I'll continue to do so.
    Now they I'm look at more pictures of his breed I'm thinking he isn't bit, it's just his head shape that makes it look like he is. I wouldn't dream of separating with him!

    Honestly people like you give pits a bad reputation. I have a 75 lb pit bull Staffordshire mix and she is terrified of our 8 lb yorkie. That yorkie has attacked her so many times even causing blood but our pit just sits there. What is anyone going to do to your dog? If your a responsible owner no one is going to just come up and beat him.... obedience and socialism is extremely important for ALL breeds
