However, questioning how much love she gets at home was a pretty low move in my opinion but naming any names on that one.
Erm, not sure if you mean me or the other person, but you can't mean me I guess. I didn't question the love she got. Either way though, I don't think the person who mentioned it meant to say she didn't. It seemed like more of a "everyone has their own reasons for getting a puppy at their specific time" statement to me.

I think the original topic was more of an introduction and for us to say how cute the pup was. I don't think she's asked for our help yet, not specifically.

Hi. Cute puppy. He looks black to me, though, not blue. Not trying to nitpick, though. It just means he has strong pigment, which is a good thing.

One thing I want to suggest is to pick up as many training books as you can. You will very likely have to teach this puppy bite inhibition, which he should have learned from being with the litter. You will have to step in and play the role of the littermates and mother. Otherwise, he will never learn appropriate interactions.

You will also want to start socializing him intensively soon. Has he had any of his puppy shots? If not, don't put him down on the ground in public places. Not at the vet's office, or the park. Pit Bulls are very susceptible to Parvo. Hopefully your vet will be able to give you further advice on how to avoid it, but also not miss the critical socialization window. These dogs are very strong and driven, so training and acclimation must begin early. Also keep an eye out for any human aggression as he gets older, and discourage it strongly. (If his breeder is irresponsible enough to let pups go at that age, I would have concerns about how much thought went into the breeding.)

If there's anything I can help you with, please don't hesitate to ask. It sounds like you love that little grunter, so I wish you luck with him.

And I don't think the OP asked to be put on a couch and be told what any of us deem her life to turn out like either.

Fact is. The puppy has a home and it is with the OP. Now would be the time to rise above whatever issues we may have and help the OP with a four week old pup- because she is surely going to need it.

Thanks to those that have offered advice and, AZ, do what Renee said.

You where the one that claimed the original topic was advice for her, when it wasn't originally the topic. I didn't claim the original topic was to put her on a couch, and I never told her what I "deem her life to turn out like" either.

I don't think it's the issues we have to rise over. And you're right. She is going to need help. And the pup will DEF. needhelp. :

Oh..........
