Hey Sin. I was wanting to get another pit to compliment Berlin, who is now just over 30+ lbs. Is it absolutely necessary to keep them seperated when I or my wife are away? And if so, how long? I wouldn't want the dogs to start tearing into each other. In addition, Berlin is just over 4 months old, when would the best time be to get a 2nd Pit? I'm greatly worried in obtaining a 7-8 week old puppy for fear that Berlin might get a bit overexcited and hurt him. At the same time, I'm a tad worried about obtaining a full-grown Pit in worries over him possibly harming Berlin.
It seems your dogs(they look damn nice, btw...what bloodline is Chucka, and how large do you expect him to get?) get along, do you leave them alone when unsupervised?
First I will start with Chucka's bloodline, I am not 100% of it. I bought him off a kid I train with. He was going back to college and couldnt take him. He had just paid 1,000 for him off of www.Camelotpitbulls.com
and has the papers. He wanted 500 for him. I told him I would take him for 100 and promise him a good home. It took a little persuading and making him think of who could be buying him. He just didnt want him bred and didnt give me that papers. He did however let me look at the papers and see that he was a camelot.
NOW on to the other question. I personally say if you are going to get another dog do it now. This is based off of my own experiance. I've always and I repeat have always owned two dogs. In Vegas we had two pits of the same age and it was no big deal. My dogs just know who is the boss, I work with both of them at the same time. Plus one is more of the wifes dog and one is my dog. They oth sleep in the bed and have never had issues with either of them. They are both get along very well. I was at first worried that Chaos wouldn't take to another pup but Chaos has taken on the older dog role. Chucka is like the lil kid brother who annoys the shit out of him. CHaos lets lucka know when playitme is over.
We were also worried about leaving them in the kennel together. It's only 10 ft X 10 ft. and I didn't know how they would do pinned up so close. Not a big deal. they don't fight they listen well and wouldn't want one to be with out the other. I am at work for at least 8 hours a day sometimes 12 on nights that I have school. I wanted Chaos to have someone to chill with and cause CHAOS with. I wouldn't change a thing. Never had a problem nor do I expect to. My dogs are so jealous if you love on one you have to 50 lb pits all over you given you kisses. When the alarm goes off I get a bath every morning at 5:30.
PS thanks for the compliments on my boys. I wish Berlin was a girl. He's beautiful as well.
