"I don't like pit bulls"

Postby copperlegend » November 3rd, 2010, 10:16 am

6 months ago, Aaron was telling me "I absolutely will not own a pit bull, ever." Now, he's the proudest pit bull papa to Nadia, and he has been so wonderful about fostering and helping out with the rescue, telling everyone that will listen about how loyal and smart and athletic they are :mrgreen:

Here he is with our 3rd foster, Kia.

I felt the same way a few years ago! It's amazing how these dogs can change opinions once someone gives them a chance.

I didn't want one before we got Oscar either, I was afraid. Good on him!

:woowoo:
I'm pretty sure Tanner, (my bf) didn't want one either. I had always entertained the idea. Luckily he lets me have my way because now he's just as crazy about them as all of us!


I love it! (ps, your man and dog are both super cute!)

Thanks! Unfortunately, they both know it, and they both use it to get what they want!

"Once a bully owner, always a bully owner!" I'm pretty sure I've heard that somewhere or read it but it rings true in my mind! And my boyfriends and my family now too! They have shown them some of the silliest tricks, best of athletics, (even if not intended) and most human compassion of any other breeds they've met. Even my behavioral dogs, when attached to a human, they just love them forever! Even if only one human, its a great bond.

Yaay another person's mind and heart changed the right way :)


Travis wasn't much of a pit bull person either. Then I got Duke and now Travis is into everything about pit bulls lol. I'm pretty sure we are a pit bull family for life :)

That's awesome... 1 more person whose mind is changed!

Now - what did you put in his food? I'm trying to get my man to let more dogs in the house.

That is awesome :D !! My brother is "anti-pit", but eventhough he won't admit it, he bonded with Ino on the road trip from NY to NJ to FL. I had the kitties in my car so that there was no room for Ino so he had to ride in the Uhaul with my brother the whole way. Ino snuggled with my brother on and off and was well behaved the whole way. I was so proud!! It is a good feeling when you can change someone's mind about them!!!
