I have been a pitbull owner my entire life, I’m now 46 years old and after almost losing a leg in a motorcycle accident I became eligible to have a medical service dog, it was not even a decision I had to think about. I rescued B-bo as a puppy and prepped him with lots of love and training, today he is two years old and the best dog I have ever had, he will pick things up and bring them to me, he will get my slippers, take my socks off, he will even answer the phone and bring it to you when it rings, all he asks for in return…Love. He travels all over the country with me, he loves to fly, he loves boats, nothing he won’t try. These dogs can be make the most amazing service animals if only given a chance, I love what you are doing for the breed.
A friend told me about this site, I was really impressed in what you are doing, I live in VT and have a large property, if you ever need foster care here on the east coast, just send me an email. Keep up the great work! Dave H.
Me and my husband have taken many pitbulls in over the years. Our oldest is now 10 years old her name is Harley but I like to call her momma dog. When we first met her she was tied to the bed of a pickup truck on a rope no more then 24 inches long her paws had sores on the bottom and in between her toes and she had chewed her tail so bad it no longer had a point just a scabbed over nub. When we asked the owner why she was tied up their response was ” she is a pitbull and might hurt someone”. As we were watching her and her mannerism our son who was 3 at the time was hugging her and petting her and she was just loving it she had a life to her that we didn’t see when we first arrived at the house. I said to my husband “look at how loving she is” his response was “she is not aggressive now but if they keep her tied up like that she will be” that is when the owner looked at us and said we could take her home. we didn’t even think about it we instantly said yes. Harley was 3 years old then once we got her home we never tied her up again. I call her momma dog because of her love for children it doesn’t matter whose kids they are she feels its her job to protect and take care of them. She was the first pitbull we ever owned and have taken many others in through the years. It is said how irresponsible pet owners have given the breed such a bad name.
i am a pitbull owner and we take in bully mixs all the time. im 5 months prego and ive been reading up on what people think about have a pit in a home with a baby. well all i can say is thank you . i was awesome to see people who stood on the same side as me. my husbands parent have stoped talking to me because i will not get rid of my bella. she was rasied with children and i have never had one problem.every where i turn people are asking if i have found her a home yet. i always ask why would i give away my best friend and in all rights my kid. i its just odd. i have four horses and rodeo bulls and many other large animals and all i ever hear is you have a pit and your having a baby. like ive done something wrong. it makes me so happy to see other pit lovers who understand why i love my dog so much.
I am the owner of an American Bully. I got him from a breeder for only $25 while all his siblings were $300-$350. He was the runt and his left leg was deformed looking. He wasn’t hyper and rambuctious like the other but, I took him anyway. He is the one of the best dogs I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. He is going to be a year old on Halloween and the prettiest dog I’ve ever seen. Even if one leg is a little bigger than the other
Having read this I believed it was rather informative. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this article together. I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!
