My name is Richard, hence the Dick. I have one APBT named Tommy who is 16 months old now. I recently met a new member on here also, Julie K who is helping me train Tommy, i am working towards his CGC and hopefully can do that within the next few months. I acquired him out of a bad situation. An ex-friend had him and could no longer keep him because he was moving into his GF parents house who had an older dog and didnt want him around. He probably would have ended up in the shelter and we all know where that leads. I got him when he was 4 months old and we have been through some rough times, with me moving and such, but he has always had a home. I recently moved into my own place and have started training him myself. Here are a few pics of my boy.

Thank you, and yes he is my first Pit. Ive had other "family" dogs but never a pit and never my own. I started looking into them right before i got him. Unfortunatly i wanted one for the wrong reasons. I wanted a dog that would "intimidate" other people. What i got was a dog taht would lick your face right off of you!!! Then i did more and more research after i got him and learned that that is there nature and have fallen in love with the breed. Now i am just trying to educate myself as much as possible and train him to be a breed ambassador. Nothing changes more minds then a well trained APBT and thats what i would like to have. I would also like to do weight pull with him in the future and have purchased a walking harness to get him used to it and next month i will get a weight harness so he can get usedto pulling something.
