Hi, I am seriously considering a pitbull as a pet and I'm going to move to the suburbs in about three years; I'm living in an apartment building that doesn't allow dogs, so I'm wondering if in general pitbulls are barkers. I vaguely remember reading somewhere that they are not generally suspiscious like rotweillers are, so this begs the question: Do pitbulls bark a lot at noises that they hear or at people? When they do bark, how long does the barking last? I understand that wolves bark like once, then zip their lips.

Are pitbulls like that? Have you ever known a pitbull who hardly ever barked? Do those anti-barking dog-shock collars work on pitbulls, or they're tollerance for pain is too high? What are some things that make a pitbull bark? I can't wait three years to get a dog, and I have one
now that is coming to the end of its life and I've been able to conceal its presence from my neighbors for the past 15+ years, so I'm hoping that this is possible to hide conceal a pitbull's precence, or maybe their bark is too loud? Oh yeah, most importantly, can they be trained to doo-doo and wee-wee on newspapers? Thanx in advance.
Chris
