She's cute, but I'm curious as to what makes you think that?

She's a cutie! Just watch the fur on her head and around her eyes, it seems a little thin, almost pre mange. I'm guessing you bought from a back yard breeder with no guarantee against this sort of thing? When you head to the vet have them take a look and maybe a little scraping for demodex.

She's black. A lot of black APBT (and other shorthaired breed) puppies tend to look thin around the forehead and eyes for awhile. I don't see anything out of the ordinary that would make me recommend a skin scrape for demodex in this pup (nor do I recommend treating mild demodex anyway, it' typically self limiting), just lighter puppy skin pigment contrasting with a dark coat.



Also want to point out that even though the breeder of this puppy is clearly the type to sell to anyone who comes along and has the cash, as unfortunately most APBT breeders are... Owning a dog with cropped ears, and/or scars, does night mean the person fights their dogs. I would hope that anyone who claims to have experience with the breed would know that it IS historically a fighting breed, and accidents happen. I hope that the OP has a plan in place in case the new puppy gets older and no longer likes other dogs.

Yeah, she's a puppy.

But seriously... Have you really thought out what you will do when she grows up, then becomes dog aggressive and wants to eat your cats?

i know some pits may become dog aggressive and may not like cats but out of all my years with the breed i havent had that problem so im hoping it wont happen with this one. and yes i do have an alternative if that does happen but with good training and good socialization that shouldnt happen..
