Q. My year old pit bull attacked my son he broke two fingers and caused him to get several stitches on his arm and ear.
A. Your dog should probably found a new home with someone who does not have children. Never EVER leave a child unsupervised with a dog and always teach your children to be very respectful and gentle with pets.I'm not saying that you haven't done this, but dogs, especially large intact male dogs often don't see children as people, they see them more as littermates or puppies and will treat them accordingly. Since your dog has shown strong aggression toward your son, your dog needs to be rehomed or at least strictly segregated from your child until he is evaluated by a trainer/behaviorist and his aggression is treated by retraining and behavioral modification. Even then, I wouldn't trust him around children. Yur dog may have high energy and requires a lot of exercise and activity to keep him tired and mentally stimulated. Long walks, runs, lots of play and activity can help. Obedience training, teaching him tricks, making sure he's well-socialized will all help him be better behaved. If you are unable to provide such care due to other commitments, such as your children, work and home, the dog would be better suited to a new home
