Jenn, what a wonderful big heart you have ! (bigger than Texas!) thankk you for sharing your "book.". Vulnerable animals , like children, need a voice, particularly pitties; whom even animal shelter workers refer to as "kennel trash."
I am pleased to have found this forum. It is unfortunate that bully breed owners aren't active because having a pit in your home and heart is under siege these days. I knew nothing about the breed until I adopted Bridget. She was left at the shelter without any major issues. However, Bonnie 's story is a heartbreaker, like Bossy. She was found abandoned in a park tied to a tree, emaciated, by Newark animal control. This park is notorious for impromptu dog fights, and dog murders - I know no other way to describe how these dogs lives are taken from them.
Bonnie overreacts to other dogs, although the progress she has made is incredible. I sent pics of her to the trainers at St Hubert's of her sitting with a gang of friends. They were astounded. Off leash and muzzle less to boot. I nearly cried when the trainer, Who I had mentioned before, sent me the pics.
Pit owners have special circumstances and I am glad you started this group. The breed is under siege by law enforcement, insurance companies, and the media. I saw there were other pooch groups but our buddies have unique situations.
Well, one thing for certain is they can be couch taters but they are incredibly powerful and energetic. Bonnie needs alot of walking and activities so both of us are burning cals!
If you don't mind, I would like to send you a friend request so we can support one another in our quests for healthy living, and our buddies. I had been with my Fitness Pal for a bit of time ; and while helpful in some respects, the over all tone was too snarky and sometimes mean spirited for my tastes.
