An American Pit Bull Terrier, also known as APBT, can be an excellent addition to your home, but like other breeds, proper introductions to other pets you have is crucial. Obviously, an intro with a puppy or young, well-socialized dog is easiest, but if you want to adopt an adult, finding one that will live in harmony with your other pets will not be a problem. Keep in mind that every dog is different, so you may need to try a few methods. Keep an eye on body language of all animals, so you know when it is time to take a break, and try again later.

1. Neutral Ground

Regardless if you are introducing a puppy or adult to your current dog, ideally it will be done on neutral ground. This could easily be done down the road at the neighborhood park.
