Hello. :greenWave: Have been reading the forum on and off for awhile now. Very impressed with the information and rescue efforts. My husband and I l are the proud parents of our 3 year old Brindle pit, Roxy. We rescued her as a puppy from our local shelter. What made us want her was our beloved "Bear" who we had rescued at the age of 2. He was a black pit/chow mix and made us laugh constantly with his crazy antics. Unfortunately, he died suddenly from an unknown disease. Vet offered many theories, but not sure. Have always been a 2 dog family-also had 3 cats. My collie passed away about 9 months ago from old age. Anyway, I am very interested in helping this breed in any way I can. I have fostered a few dogs. Had Roxy evaluated recently and unfortunately, they highly recommended that I foster only puppies because of her "dog aggressiveness/protectiveness" toward bigger dogs. In between homes right now, so hope to foster in the future.

Hello Elaine !

Give Roxy a big hug and kiss for me!

Can't wait for our trip to Foxwoods. I swear I am going to win BIG this time! LOL. And I promise I won't get into a fight with the Pit Boss again. Well, maybe.

Hi. Love the breed the minute we adopted our first mixed Pit. "Our Bear". I loved him so much. Then we got Roxy as a puppy. Her personality was constantly changing. I needed to find out more about her "antics"--was it her or the breed? Then I did some web searching and, as many of you know, joined a forum. Can never get enough information and hope to foster in the future.
