My family has had a dog for a short period of time before, but this is the first time I've had my very own. After several months of research I decided on a pit bull, for these reasons: they are extremely loyal and will do anything to please their owners, they give everything they do their best, they love people, and they are great athletes.

I picked up my puppy at 6 weeks old. I wish he could have stayed with his mom for another two, I really feel like he missed out, but the owner wanted the puppies gone. I don't agree with that choice, but at least she cared to who they were going to.

This is Reno the day I got him.

And this is him now, at 14 weeks and 25 pounds as of Saturday (probably around 27 now, he's growing fast!)

He already knows well over a dozen commands and a few tricks, including shake, high-five, speak, and we're currently working on crawl (it's soooo cute!). He picks up commands very fast. He's mastered sit, down, in the car, inside/outside and a lot more. I'm very proud of him :)

Welcome to you and Reno! Reno is a cute boy, and sounds like he is in good hands. There are a lot of knowledgeable folks here - lots of trainers to keep us non-trainer types headed in the right direction. :dance:

One of the moderators will be along shortly and can give you full access to the board.

Just so you know, due to spammers people's posts have to be approved for the first handful of posts, so don't take it personally! :)
