I signed up for Obedience training at DOTCORNY and Michelle took one look at the picture of my families new to us puppy, and said, "yep, you got an American Pit Bull Terrier there." And then she handed me the card to pitbulltalk.com.
After a few misspellings (pittbulltalk.com, pitbultalk.com) my daughter said "ONE T, TWO Ls, SHEESH" and here I am. One would think that since I do some Unix administration I would have been more careful about the spelling.
We adopted Esmeralda Q. van der Huntin III (pronounced whontin) from the Rochester Animal Control Services on Verona Street (they called her Buddy). The pound said she was a Boxer/Mastiff mix, and as far as the Town of Gates and my home owners insurance is concerned, Ezzie is a Boxer/Mastiff mix. She is just way to sweet to give up now. And she is fast becoming one of the family. Not sure of her age, but I figure at the next class Michelle may be able to give me a better estimate.
I am slowly picking up information about the APBT breed, and the more I see the more I may be a life long owner of one. I love the way Ezzie looks, and I have personally met Ruby. And the more I see how loyal and intelligent the APBT can be (Ezzie is starting to prove that) I am truly hooked.
A boy and his dog. The wife said "you did NOT put her in your lap..." yeah, I did.
