Yeah, typically any breed that looks like a bully breed is considered to be a pit bull mix. Have you seen Pit Boss? There have been episodes of dogs that look nothing like pit bulls beig threatened with death if their owners don't rehome them just because they might have a sturdier stature and a few wrinkles. So I'm guessing there's no luck with your Puggle? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I wouldn't get a new dog until you're sure you're not getting your old dog back. Getting a new pet should never be a quick decision like this.

Can I just mention how I hate that certain breeds are termed "agressive".

Any bully looking breed would get ratted out, likely.<br><br><br>
I personally would rat it out because my dog has been attacked twice. =/

When my parents adopted my dog for me he came with papers with the breed? I don't know. This whole apartment situation is ticking me off. Sorry to hear that happen to your dogs!

I don't think you should chance it, they may ok it now, but could change their mind later.<br>
Take your time, there are so many, wait for the <i>one</i>.

I think it would be very, very irresponsible and unfair to both dogs if you got a new dog without knowing that you can even keep your dog where you live and without knowing yet what has happened to your old dog. You don't want to get in another bad situation where you have to temporarily move your dog again, do you?

My mom wants peanut. So I can't have him exact words "I paid $1,000 for him paid for him to get fixed, paid for his shots, I want him back. Sparky misses him"<br>
you think if she cared "SOOOOOOO much" she wouldnt choose a dead cow over him, but like we don't get along AT ALL.

I'd avoid getting a pet while one is still renting. You will probably move at some point and having a pet could severely limit your choices.

Especially a dog, and especially a big one. A lot of places *might* take cats, but a lot of those places will not take dogs. And there may be a significant security deposit or even monthly rent for the pet.<br><br>
UNLESS someone is willing to make a commitment to that animal and no matter what not abandon them even if they have to move quickly or the situation changes, etc. I've seen homeless people with their cats and people sleeping in their cars with their dogs. While I don't think that's the best situation or that a better situation couldn't or shouldn't be found - it's still about having that kind of commitment. I know someone who won't even go back to her homeland (Europe) because she's got feral cats and other pets who rely on her.

I agree with the others to wait. Pets are like children. They are ALOT of responsibility especially when you are on your own and don't have family members around to help take care of them. Dogs also require a ton of exercise so you'd have to be prepared for daily walks, picking up poop multiple times a day (BIG poop if you have a big dog) and also paying a monthly pet fee (most likely) along with your rent check. Any damage to your apt because of the animal you will have to pay for. Vet visits, emergencies, pet food, meds, etc are all super expensive so you would have to make sure you have the funds set aside for all that.<br><br>
Adopting an animal is just such a huge responsibility that you have to make sure you are prepared for. It's like having a child in a lot of ways. Are you ready to clean up dog poop, diaherra, and vomit if the dog gets sick? Ready to devote a huge chunk of your time for another living creature?

I agree with the others you should wait. And yes, someone will call that dog a pit bull and you'll be told to get rid of him.
