Hello there pit bull lovers. I'm a new member. I would love to get personal here but at the current moment, I'm a member of another rescue that is seen in a negative light here. I'm starting to question my being involved with them but have developed relationships with those that aren't mods that I don't want to lose. So I'm being honest and open to you all. I'm not here to bash on anyone or be a runner of information. But at times, when my doubts arise, I would definitely like a perspective other than that provided by the cronies. I hope I'm welcomed here but understand if you don't want me here because of my involvement with them.

I was just involved with my first rescue and after I jumped on board to help, the rescue started backing away and were helping less and less until it was ultimately up to me to find a home for the dog. I was not happy to say the least. That is where my questions came about. I was able to get plenty of donations from those that aren't mods there and from people who genuinely care about the animals but as soon as the going got tough, everyone involved in the upper levels of the rescue backed off and it became my problem to deal with. Not a way to handle rescue, in my opinion.

Tell us a little about your personal dogs, or what got you into the breed? Favorite pizza? ;)

phew! i was nervous! a little about me and my fam...

i have a APBT who I love to the ends of the earth! She's a blue/brindle mix...or so they say. To me, she's just a wet nose pit! I am also married with a 1 yr old son. My family is my world.

I became a pit owner in the wrong way...my sister's dog was not altered and got pregnant from the neighbors pit. I was not educated on the breed and just wanted a puppy so I scooped her up from my sister. That's probably one of the greatest mistakes I have ever made! I searched the internet for quite a while on different rescues and such because I have been experiencing some fear issues with her since Landon started crawling/walking. I have been working on this feverishly because I don't want to see her leave my home but every day is a constant battle. That's how I found the afformentioned rescue. They have been trying to give me advice for quite a while now and every now and then I feel like we are improving but for the most part, I feel we are failing.

Since I started working on her fear aggression, I have submersed myself in all things pit bull related. I just hate the negative media coverage that this breed gets and I have seen so many great pitties and they have touched my heart. That's what made me want to get involved and help in any way I can. I'm sure I will be here asking advice and getting everyone's opinions...and hopefully some fresh ones!

Oh yea...my favorite pizza? Hawaiian!
