::sigh:: I just wrote out like 3 pages and my computer froze and it all went away.....so here I go again
I'm a 24y/o mother of 3....pit bulls
Roady-2.5y/o Pit/Mastiff/AmBulldog mix who is a big wrinkle faced lovebug.
Tank-9mo Pit who thinks he's king of the world, and definately doesn't love his puppy classes.
These two babies live with my parents about 30min away from where I live now with my boyfriend...when I moved out my mom said it wasn't even an option for me to bring them as they were her new babies now(having my brother and I both out of the house) and she needed them and they needed her. I agreed. My parents have a beautiful 3 floor victorian on abour 3 or 4 acres of land/woods and free (supervised) roam outside and free roam inside. My mother and I took both dogs to classes on their own. Tank is DA but not to every dog...it's random-so we're trying to get this corrected through classes and if it ever comes down to it, we'd make the right decision by being responsible, thoughtful owners. He gets crated as seen fit when necessary. He is a great dog to our family so I don't want you to think he's a mean machine.
So after 9months my boyfriend and I decided to get a pup. We visited MANY shelers in our area and weren't giving much thought from the places. We loved a pup we saw on petfinder-a 9mo pit/chi-wow-a (haha idk how to spell it) but when we got there they said she had a problem with her leg-she couldn't walk more than 20min-and she'd be PTS since the vet bills would be too much. We said we'd take her-right then and there-no if's ands or buts...and without even knowing our income they said no-that it could be up to $4000 and we said that was fine, but they weren't too happy. They gave me a card and said for me to call them back-I did-still the same answer. We were heartbroken.
So after more look we found Shoon, at 4wks we were able to take him-and he was already eating solid puppy food
I know this isn't the greatest so I wanted him to get outta there. $350 later we had him in a great, loving, caring home.
Well, I was shown this site by a friend who is a former member of a site I'm on...and I hope I'll make this my new pit forum home as I've seen the negativity/wrongdoing there and life's too short for that...this is about saving the dogs.
I hope this site can be as great as it seems for me!
I'll post pictures later as my computer doesn't want to let me right now
