thank you, i actually didnt fall in love with the breed at first. i was attacked by a nieghbors pit bull and rotwieler while walking our german/australian shepard police dog, that left me terrified. i guess when something terrifies me i want to to understand it or at least know more about it. so i started researching, reading and educating myself on the breed. learning their history, their characteristics and speaking with people who have or currently own them! i looked for months until we found chance. i fell in love with him and had to have him! now i will admit that i did get him from a byb (before i knew better of course), i also wanted a dog i was sure of the temperment of since i was new to the breed in all honesty.
what i did not know was that when i was a baby, my dad had an apbt and he was raised around them as well.
i fell in love with chance, and every apbt i met from their on. i hate when i see irresponsible owners who dont care enough to research something they plan to bring into their lives and homes for years! you wouldnt have a child without learning what the do's and dont's are about raising a child right? sorry my own opinion there.
after having a dog with all the training as my police dog did, it is hard to start over. chance was easy to train though! i spend a lot of time working with him and he responds very well to positive reinforcement and excersise. he is the biggest baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he loves flopping down on top of me and loves his attention. he still thinks he weighs 20lbs, and that he is a lap dog. anyhow, i want to get him into what chris fraize (sp? sorry) does. i am not very good with the showing and agility terms. i would love to see how he would do with weight pulling. truth is all of that is new to me! i have never had a dog or any friends who do these things. so i am everyday learning something new and trying to get an idea where to start. i moved to cali from florida, so i still dont know a lot of people.
thanks again for the complements they go straight to chance's head :)

thank you very much! he is my angel! i could never have thought i would be soo blessed as to have such a wonderful dog! my boyfriend always wanted a bull terrier, as he would call it "the target dog" hehehehe. he helped me learn that they are a wonderful breed and have so many goofy and loyal qualities! i have him to thank for making me face my fear and he is the one who got chance for me when we moved in together out here where i was far away from fl and ga and all my family! i guess i have my two angels!
