Nice looking pup and a great name! I was thinking of naming my pups after the Greek and Trojan warriors as well. I think that's fitting for such powerful courageous dogs.



Happy New Year!

Thanks again for everybodys kind introductions!! I am alittle bit nervous though about something Achilles has been doing.. When he gets into a deep sleep, he will start to twitch and shutter as if he was having a seizure.. Sometimes its lightly, and sometimes its pretty bad, untill I wake him and then it stops.. Do you think he is having seizures? or is this something common among the Pit-Bull breed.. I was doing alot of research about it tonight because it is something that is greatly worrying me! If you have any information, it would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks again, and I will get new pictures up as soon as possible!!

Bella always has twitchy dreams, some more violent than others. Sometimes she kicks her legs like she's chasing something. :) I wouldn't worry about it unless he starts exhibiting this behavior while he's awake.

Well I am happy to hear that.. Achilles is my pride and joy and I want to make sure he is taken care of ! I'll probably give the vet a call tomorrow just to make sure..

Well, thank you! I can't wait to watch Achilles grow up in your pictures. You should post his pictures at least once a day. ;)

he's cute :D

like the article said, you wouldnt be able to wake him if he was having a seizure. i use to have a dog that had seizures and its very scary, he would shake and foam at the mouth and he would be out of it for a few minutes afterwards. sadly he escaped and we never found him :cry:

Awww he's dreaming! I can't think of a dog I've had who hasn't done that. I always thought it was cute.

Great looking pup, btw :)

He is a great looking pup! Gotta love the blues.

Glad to hear that it sounds like dreaming and not seizures. My dog Mo dreams a lot and twitches his mouth and feet. Sometimes he even makes little monkey noises. :roll:

I bet it is a sign of intelligence that they can dream so vividly.

Beautiful puppy! :) My foster shepherd growls and whines in his sleep, and I had another dog who would bark, only he wouldn't open his mouth so it was this muffled "mrrumph" noise. I thought he was choking the first few times he did it. :roll:
