  • I have a pitbull puppy that is about 3 months old. Female pits are usually a little smaller but it also would depend on what kind of pitbull he is. Male dogs can range from 70-90 lbs full grown which makes them a medium to a large dog. They are a pretty smart breed which can make them a little hard to train but it takes patience in any case. Especially with little kids you need to make sure that the dog (any kind of dog for that matter) knows where his rank is in the family. When you take him outside make sure that he is the last to re-enter the house. He will nibble on hands and feet when he plays and sometimes hair if he can get to it lol. When playing with him though never lie on the ground and let him climb all over you it is dogs way of showing dominance and that would not be a good thing. Most of these things apply to most dogs. Pitbulls are great additions to any family.

  • I have seen brilliant pits and goofy ones. even the smart ones act goofy. i love pit bulls, since we have a little one who may have allergies to dogs, I can't have one

    he will be so much fun with your kids!

  • I don't know exact weights but they aren't huge. I have a small 2 bedroom townhouse condo and he fit with my hubby and 2 kids but he stunk up the whole place cuz he would sweat so much

  • They are all different depends on how they are raised. I would try him its not that hard to do it your self just takes some time. I have an extremly hyper pit that the kids cant play with because she is pretty rough but has never hurt one worse than a scratch. Make sure it gets lots of exersise and play time so that it wont be extremly hyper. They get pretty big depending on the parents but most arent all huge they are a large dog though the bigger the head is means the dog will be pretty big if it is more dimond shaped then round then it will more then likely be short and stocky. What kind do you know?

  • Most I think are about 35-45 pounds (in my experience at least). They're an average size in height, but they are very thick. Most I've met have been just as goofy as they are smart. It's probably the mouth that makes us think they're silly.

    Congrats on the new puppy. Pit bulls are a blast. :)

  • SOMEONE POSTED: ....Pits don't work with hitting, shock collars or anything of that nature for i said they were meant to be watch dogs, turned into fighting because of their jaw power and strength... WHY NOT WITH HITS OR THE COLLARS?
