This past year I started fostering dogs for a group called Animal Help Alliance in Las Vegas. I ended up with two pit bull mixes that I adopted after fostering. I never thought I would do pit bulls I'd always had large but friendly dogs, labs and aussie cattle dogs. My two are the nicest dogs with people, but one is aggressive with other dogs.
