    Backstory with my first dog... She's a pit mix she gets along well with cats (we have 2). Now we had another dog who was female (GSD) and they were both unaltered. They got into a fight which was started by my GSD but they were both in heat at the time so I figured that had a huge part in it. I...

He is super sweet and loves my 3 year old hound mix Izzy. She's pretty happy with him but let's him know when...

    Hello, new guy here. So lately my girlfriend has poked around the idea of adopting, and we've looked at all kinds of dogs. I convinced her to adopt a rescued pit, and that's the route we're going to take. I've just got a few questions, regarding my living situation, obedience, amongst other...

    Hey! So I'm about to adopt a 7 month rescue pit bull/weimaraner and have a couple concerns. I've been doing my research about this breed and there's so many contradictions and hot and cold which I'm sure everybody's aware. My boyfriend grew up with big dogs (weimaraners and vizslas-very high...

    Hello all! I'm new here! Just a couple of quick questions that maybe some of you could help me with! First off, I'm moving into a new place shortly and (with the landlord's blessing of course) I'm looking into getting a Pit. I've fallen in love with a boy at the shelter here. My main concern is...

    Hi guys, Here's the story: Every so often I go to the kennel to walk dogs. I never really had the intention of bringing one home, until I met this girl here: Basically, it was love at first sight. When I usually walk into the kennel, the dogs go crazy. They are all barking and jumping at...

    Over the summer we lost Tia, too long and sad of a story to get into, we've not finished going thru the grieving stage but we approached by a fellow worker of my husband's about taking in an older staffy. The oldest we've ever taken in was a 3 yr old rottie girl. We knew all of her background...

    Hey guys, this is my first time posting, I will soon be a first time dog owner so excuse me if I ask some obvious questions. I tried researching and asking around but I think information from a specific breed's forum will be better. The puppy is only 3-4month old im sure its a pitbull just not...

    when you go to your local paper or your local craigslist and you see a puppy being given away at only five or six weeks old, be ready for a commitment and work! Sadly many people think that once a pup is able to eat puppy food they are able to find a new home. the thing they forget is that...

    I thought this would make a good discussion to talk about the positives from buying from a breeder vs adopting a dog. Given what happened to Helena (the APBT who blew out 2 ACL's) I find this to be very common with rescued or adopted mixed breed or dogs with unknown back grounds. Not that...
