Okay, I know that I am listening to the hysteria in the media and such, but... We were told that he was boxer lab and I never questioned it. He is now 10 weeks and he is really starting to show what I consider to be pit features. I know his mom is full boxer, but dad at this point is a huge question mark. I have done some research and everything says that pit mixes should only be owned by dog experienced owners and in households with children over the age of 7. My only dog experience is with labs and our children are 1 and 3. I am really torn and want to keep my children's safety in mind. Now, he is an amazing puppy and we adore him. I can't see us getting rid of him or anything, but I am scared to death to own a pit bull. When his ears are down he looks like a boxer-lab, but lately his ears have been kind of perking up on top of his head with the tops flopping down. When he does this he looks like a pit bull. We saw a 10 week old pit bull a couple of days ago and he looked just like Tater. My only stipulation with getting a puppy was no pit bulls. It is not only the rep that scares me, but I don't like the image that tends to go along with pit bulls. Our neighborhood is full of them and there is definately a certain type of individual that goes along with it. I could really use some advice concerning this breed. I know that this is a boxer forum, but I would assume someone has pits, right? I adore this puppy and want some postive stories/advice. Thanks!
