    10 months ago my boyfriend and I rescued an 11 month old male pit. The past few months he has gone from sleeping during the night in both his cage and in the bedroom with no accidents to peeing in his cage and on the bedroom floor. We think he has some separation anxiety because he gets super...

    Hello! I adopted a pit 3 months ago (M, neutered, 2yo, 75lbs). He's just perfect, minus separation anxiety. It's been a challenge, but with training and patience things are moving along. He's now able to stay home for a full day alone (AM + PM walk, plus noon dogwalker). He doesn't love it but...

    This puppy just showed up under our car port one cold, rainy day two months ago and wouldn't leave. He was skinny, thirsty and shivering. His nose was scruffed up and he was a bit lethargic for a puppy. My kids and wife loved him immediately and wanted to keep him. We fed him and gave him water...

    I know this is going to sound a little crazy, but I am looking for some opinions on this situation: Male Pit, owned by same people since he was 12 weeks old. Owner says he is gentle, loving and never had a problem with him. Female Rescue Pit (?) also gentle and loving. The two dogs have...

    I recently finished a very difficult court case. My therapist on the case diagnosed me with ptsd and recommended I get an emotional support animal.
