Thread: Keeping One of My Dogs Pups???? Which Sex?

  1. #1

    Default Keeping One of My Dogs Pups???? Which Sex?

    Hi All,

    Our beautiful two year old American Staffy has just had her first litter of 10 pups and we will be keeping one of them. I am a little concerned about behavioural/aggression issues that may come alone with owning two Amstaffs and would love some advice on wheather to keep a male or female pup. I have been told that it is not a good idea to keep two of the same sex but wondered if the risk is lesser given the pup will be one of her own?

    Please help

    Ooh I think you should keep the 2 biggest, toughest, most vicious ones and let them fight to the death

    Default mmmmm . . . . .

    Has anyone thought this might actually be a real post and that this person might genuinely like some advice!!!!

    Well I know from experience I have mother and daughter! They 'argue' quite alot however they do sort it out between themselves fairly quickly.

    You will need to watch out for some general things though:-

    1. If the pup grows bigger than the adult, the pup then becomes a threat
    2. If one is spayed and not the other then one is more dominant than the other - this will cause drama's
    3. Do not introduce a male!


    I would advise you to opt for a male! You WILL HAVE to desex if you don't want inbred pups.


    Hope this helps

    I have 2 female dogs, a 1yo, and an 8yo. While we have had some problems with aggression, it has been minimised by tethering the dogs while feeding (10 mins either side of feed), and using noisy distractions if aggression is present.
    I've also read recently, that it's wise to let your 1st dog 'choose' your second dog. If your dog chooses a dog that it likes, then you've started off on a good stride. But yes, there can be aggression issues with 2 dogs of the same sex, as you may have gathered when reading between the lines of the above comments.
    I've not been on forums that long, but do know that I come here for advice, respecting that others here may have more and varied experience to my own that could be valuable for me.
