My name is Shannon, and I live in PA. I am the proud owner of 4 greyhounds and a pit bull x american bulldog. I am very active in rescue often fostering for either greyhound rescue and/or our local no-kill group.

I have the AWESOMEST pack of rescue dogs. They are all laid back and happy-go-lucky, always greeting foster dogs with a wagging tail and sometimes even a smile. And no one eats the kitties

I also have 3 young children (under 7) and one due in early November!

Here is Maggie, my pit mix

If you want to see pics of the rest of the gang, I'd be happy to post them...just didn't want to fill up a pit forum with non pits!

Welcome to the forum!

What got you into rescue?
Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.

OMG I just typed a whole long reply and lost it LOL

Here we go again...

My first rescue dog was Peter, a greyhound. I quickly learned that greyhounds are like chips...you can't have just one, so I decided to start fostering to curb my cravings of adopting more. Yeah..uhuh. I did well with the first 5 or so...and then came a string of failures :oops:

I had become very active and had my name out there for greyhound rescue. I enjoyed talking with people and helping them find rescue groups and/or in some cases, finding groups for unwanted dogs. Someone found my name and contacted me about Miss Maggie...and my husband was in love.

He has always wanted a pit. We talked about it and agreed to meet her and see what she thought of my dogs. And what exactly did Maggie think of my dogs you ask? :? Well...when we brought out Pearl, Maggie jumped about 4 feet in the air, landed and rolled on her back. Her tail went crazy and so did Pearls. After I felt confident that there was no aggression between these two, I let go of the lead and off they went! We ended up (in December) out in the yard for an hour watching the greys play "Chase Maggie and roll her around the yard".

So, Maggie opened the door for ALL dogs in my home, and I have since fostered all kinds of dogs. Most recently a dachshund and now a lab cross (that I THINK has pit in her). I have learned a new appreciation for all dogs - the bullies in particular through my endeavors. Thanks Mags!

I know I look terrible in this pic, but I was ready for bed. I LOVE her expression here.

And now her fur siblings.

The late, greyt Jimbo Albert who crossed the bridge on 7/18 of this year. He was epileptic and taught me so much about love.

EDIT - SO sorry the resizing didn't seem to take....... :x
