My name is Kym and I live in Portland, Oregon. I have two dogs Gabby a labrador, Emma Shay a Boxer/kelpie mix and one cat Halo(permanent residents). I am blessed beyond words for them. They bring so much joy and love to my life.
I recently started fostering Sam, hes my first pit bull. I LOVE him. He is so sweet and loving. Loves to give hugs and kisses and he loves it when I carry him around on my hip like a baby. I am already dreading the day he has to leave.
I got involved with Pit Bull Rescue I think kinda backwards. In public, My Boxer/mix is mistaken for a Pit Bull which was not a big deal until I stumbled onto a BSL yahoo group. I realized My Emma would be in danger if BSL came to my area. Luckily it hasn't, but I am ready for the biggest fight of my life if it does. I've become very educated about BSL and therefore I felt it a requirement to learn as much about Pits as I could. I am no expert by any means. I am not even close. but I do know enough to change peoples perceptions and educate them.
