I actually did try rescuing older and / or special needs Pit(s) before Cooper & Blue.. I was approved through numerous shelters home checks and such..but the Ol' Man (Chance) wouldn't have it. I wasn't consciously looking for pups, but Cooper & Blue were on death row and happened to cross my line of sight. Then Bella was literally on her way to being put down..and well the rest is his&herstory.
"Best friends can't be bought. But they can be adopted or rescued from shelters. Rescue a Pit Bull today. Have a best friend for life." ~ Spike
