so next year im plannin on getting a 2nd dog. dexter should be 4 yrs old by then. was thinking of the bull terrier. does anyone know or have this breed?
LOL well this is a CHI forum!They really are doggist!!!!!! Baby is so mean to dogs but not chihuahuas? Lol besides our mastiffs she was fine with them but also had no problem telling them off!
What the heck kristi I never knew u had a cane corso!
LOL!!! u are too funny LS. i been considering another chi but i wanna explore first and see if i can mix breeds into my family chis are adorable but i love havin a variety of things. i want another dog because a year or so ago i setup a webcam motion monitor in my room while my parents were out of the country and i was at work. what i found was dexter howling...it was so sad. hey ill share hereMini bulls are the bomb! Such active, crazy little clowns! LOVE them!!!
Personally I think all breeds can coexist and even love each others company,
but it seems that Chis do prefer their own kind. Would you consider another Chi?
What are your reasons for getting another dog? Do you have any other breeds
in mind? I'm full of questions today, aren't I?! LOL Sorry, I got a really bad cold,
it's making me feel funny.
hehe im goin for female this time so it will be his sis males are just too territorial lol. 1 man of the house is enough for me awww ur babies get along with so many breeds! puppies are just too adorable....im gonna melt seein any breed puppy LOL~ i have to get the pup atleast 12 weeks old as i need to start small to introduce to dexter, he loves is furrybuddys tiny :daisy:Aw Dexter is gonna get a new brother or sister! yay!!!!

i have rat terrier in mind as well as the scottish terrier, westhighland terrier...u can see where im gettin at LOL. terriers are makin an interest to me hehe~
100% Agree with you on spaying the female. Personally I'd neuter Dexter too.Not trying to get on a soapbox; but if you get a female please spay her lol. If I remember correctly Dexter is intact; and I've heard lots of stories of small male chi's impregnating much larger breeds... even the most diligent owners have oopses. And keep in mind also that intact males have a very strong sense for intact females and their presence can cause a lot of stress; if he's been a singleton for so long he may have a very dominant personality too.
So I would say regardless of what breed (and I do LOVE bull terriers) is just to make sure they are introduced properly. And a rule of thumb of most bully breeds is no matter how much you trust them to never leave them alone with other dogs. My friend had a bull terrier mix that was about 2 years old and the sweetest thing; was raised with smaller dogs; went to doggy daycare and never showed an ounce of aggression... they were left alone for 5 minutes when she ran to the store quick and she killed him for no rhyme or reason. I LOVE LOVE bully breeds but people just have to take into consideration what they were originally bred for. Early socialization can work WONDERS and many of them get along splendidly with other dogs with no issues; but they are still cautioned never to be trusted alone with other animals. If Dex is intact and has been a singleton for so long it is not unreasonable to assume he has a dominant personality; which may cause conflict if he tries challenging a larger breed. Also, sharing his territory with another dog may also cause him to start marking to claim his territory.
Ok that's all lol; it's been a while since I've owned a bully breed. Here is a really, really helpful thread that might help you decide on if a bully breed is right for you..
Bully breed owners, info please! (Especially APBT, SBT, AmStaffy)
Whichever breed you choose, good luck! I can't imagine just having 1 dog lol.
