Hi, my name is Samantha, I live in Va state. I have one pit bull/lab mix who is three and her name is.....yep, you guessed it.....Jessie! She is my first pit, but I'm only 21. I have been many pits in the last three years because I work at a boarding kennel....and most of my friends have or have had a pit. Owning a pit bull happened by accident. My pup was left at our kennel so that we could find her a home. When the kennel closed down a few years ago to build a new place, I took her in to foster her...that was 2 1/2 years ago :) Since then I have fallen in love with the breed, and use my pup and my (small amount of) knowledge to educate those that fear her.
My family (as a full time student, I still live at home) is also owned by a Beagle, Penny, 3 cats, and 4 ferrets (very amusing creatures if you ever get the chance to meet one)
There is not BSL in my area, but an adjoining county has considered it since some women let her 3 pitsrun loose and they killed an 85-year-old women. It's been over a year, so it seems to havedied down a bit, so hopefully they won't pass anything (all past attempts at BSL have failed)
I found Pit Bull Talk from an e-mail annoucing the bull-ympics from pitbulllovers.com....where I get my monthly newsletters.
I would love to post pics of my baby if anyone could share the best way to make the pictures small enough to fit :)
