Postby Porters Keeper » February 2nd, 2011, 5:34 pm

My name is Mark and I am currently hailing from the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state. I also have the privilege of raising a Pit Bull mix named Porter, who presently tips the scales at 75 lbs at eight months old (he still has big feet, so I assume there is still much growing to be done). I have always had a good affinity with the bully breeds and am bummed that there is so much negative vibes out there towards them. The sweetest dogs I've ever met have been pit bulls!

We got Porter from a rescue (his mother had been neglected and abused). She weighed 45lb when she gave birth to two pups, him and his sister, and the shelter told us they didn't know who his father was but they thought he'd be smaller than his mom. So, we took him home and fed him and he's now eight months and 75lbs.
I found PBT on a search engine while trying to find some durable dog toys that can stand a playful and enthusiastic pit bull.

As far as pics of Porter:
My avatar is one of Porter first discovering mirrors.

This was shortly after we adopted Porter at 8 weeks

I'll try to find some more recent pics later!

Brindle puppies are so cute!
